Quick and Easy


I started looking the other day and have determined that there are HUNDREDS of challenges out here in "blogger-land"! I've never seen so many! Some of the sketch challenges are really good though so I keep a notebook of them to refer back to ever so often.

As I've said before, usually by the time I can come up with an idea for one of the challenges, it's "history". This sketch challenge is from Sweet Sunday and I really liked it so decided to play along for this week -and actually had an idea on what I was going to do!!! SHOCK!

The cardstock I used is Really Rust, Very Vanilla, (from SU) and Sunflower (from CTMH) - and used ink in the same colors - plus Kiwi Kiss. The stamp set is Pocket Silhouettes from SU. Tools used were the Word Window Punch, Button, Twine, AND this gorgeous ribbon from Wal-Mart (of all places). Isn't it just so pretty? In fact, I bought two spools of it when I saw it. This was really quick and easy to put together. I think I'll leave off the sentiment if I make another one like it though.

Thanks for stopping by.............

Lynn, your card makes me smile. Want to know what it reminds me of? Holidays at the cottage, sitting on the sofa (gingham ribbon!) reading. Love it!

What a gorgeous card. This is a great layout to showcase your images. Such lovely, autumnal colors. This IS nice ribbon and I can see why you bought so much of it. And I agree, as nice as the sentiment is, this card would still look great without it.
