I hope you will join me! If you already have a demo but want to stop by, please do. I totally get that some of you already do. But take a look at the Open House and give me your feedback on what you think of it so I can make next years even better!!

Paper & Ink Sketch #5

Here is my take on Sketch #5. I normally strongly dislike “fussy” cutting but these candies were just crying out to be cut out. If you are making these as we go, please share with me. I’d love to see the card you make!

I will update supplies used when I can. This flu bug really took me out of commission for several days. Hope this card and sketch inspires you to make something!

Sketch 5

Hi guys! Just letting you know I am feeling under the weather so I’ve decided to take Friday through Sunday off to get better. Normally I wouldn’t but I am letting go and putting self care at the top of my list so this doesn’t turn into something worse.

Meanwhile, here is sketch 5! I will post my card Monday.  Have a crafty weekend!

Last Sketch 4 Card

I’m sharing with you the last card for Paper & Ink Sketch 4. My computer is down but when it is running again, I will update this post with supplies used. I’m using my cell phone to post and holy cow is it little lol anyway, here is my card. I really enjoyed using stamp pads to water color. Also posting a Sketch 4 with dimensions!  Sketch 5 goes live tonight. I will post my card tomorrow. 

Happy stamping!
