Sketch #1 sample
Image
EC #2 & 3 The flowers are stamped and cut out using the stamps and matching
die cuts that are in the new Stamp of Approval box I received a couple weeks ago.
Also the center piece I used a stencil that was in the SOA box and texture/embossing
paste then colored it with some Catherine Pooler inks.
I was pretty excited with how this one turned out.

Sketch #2 sample

This is also the card I made for the Crafty Awesomeness challenge.
I colored the Sasayaki Glitter image "Heart Ants" using my Copic markers.
I love the lil polka a dot booties.

Sketch #3 sample
Image
EC 1 The feather are here are from Unity stamps. I stamped them and heat embossed them
with gold embossing powder then colored them using Zig Clean color pens. The background paper
is paper I got at Michaels that was already embossed like that. I love the color.
Sentiment is another Unity stamp.

Made a second one for this sketch
Image
This one is made with stamp from Close to my Heart, heat embossed with silver and
colored again with Zigs. Background paper embossed with a chevron embossing folder

Sketch #4 sample

EC 3
I love the simplicity of this card. Might be a great idea
to mass produce a bunch of Christmas cards. Maybe I will make a sample
one like that during the month. :)

Hi everyone.

Thanks for the new sketches Donna. I really need something to get me out of my slump. I feel like all my cards look the same! :violin: I'll try to print them out, if not I'll ask you to send them to me.

Your samples are wonderful and as diverse as ever.

Later.....Dee
