SSINKspiration Card Sketch #42

It's Card Sketch time over at SSINKspiration!  It's a fun time of the month that you can join in with us and play along!  We would love to see what you create with this sketch...



Here is the card that I created...


I think I'm ready for summer!  The day that I made this card it was 73 degrees...in the midwest in February!  It's normally very, very cold with snow and more snow!  So it was a nice break from our winter blues!  We were playing outside and doing yard work and cleaning the inside of the house with the windows open!  (sigh)

Anyway...I hope you enjoy my card today!  Don't forget to stop by the SSINKspiration main blog today to see what the other Design Team Members created for you and upload your own card based on our sketch this week!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Dinosaur Valentines

Today over at SSINKspiration we are showcasing our favorite animal stamp sets.  Here is mine...

No Bones About It

This is such a fun stamp set.  When searching the internet for Valentine's Day Ideas, I found a cute card with a small plastic dinosaur attached to it!  I LOVED this idea and so did my son.  So this is what we made...


Now we just have to duplicate this little card 14 times before Monday for his preschool class!  We can do it!

Please be sure to stop by the SSINKspiration main blog to see what the other Design Team Members created for you.  You won't want to miss these cute cards!!

Today my card was inspired by the FUN Sending Love DSP Stack!  I love all of the prints in this stack...and I think you will too.


One of my favorite things about my card today is that I used the Sweetheart Punch to create a fun white-on-white background to my card base.  Have you ever done this before?

SSINKspiration: Friday Favorite - Watercolor Pencils

Today over at SSINKspiration we are showing you how great the NEW Watercolor Pencils are!

I used the pencils on this card to color in the globe.  Then I used my Aqua Painter that was filled with water to blend in my pencil coloring.  Watercolor Pencils work the best on our Watercolor paper!  We hope that you will try out this great new product!  It's one of my favorites for sure!
