Weekend sketch challenge #78 April 25, 2009

I apologize for being late with my post.  Sharon Harnist is hosting the sketch this week.  Head on over to her blog to see the sketch she came up with. 

I hardly EVER use purple.  When I was at work last weekend, a scrub top caught my eye.  It was purple, green, and brown.  I wrote the colors on a little piece of scrap paper and tucked it into my back pocket. 


Check out what Beate,  Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie,  Lori and Sharon came up with as well with the sketch.

 I will be missing in action for the next couple weeks.  That means probably NO blog posting.  Stampin’ Up! Convention is in August this year and I will be making some of the display samples for the event and the Art From the Heart 2009 CD.  That’s all I can say! 

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

PAPERS:  Perfect Plum, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip cardstock; Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper.

INK:  Perfect Plum, Chocolate Chip, and Kiwi Kiss Classic Stampin’ Pads.

ACCESSORIES:  1″ Stitched Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon; Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Buttons; 1″ and 1-3/4″ Circle Punches; Crafters’ Tool Kit.

    This design is fabulous!!! I absolutely love the big ribbon bow and how you tucked the end under your paper – clever!

    I love this stamp set, it is so cute! It hasn’t been translated, though, and there are too many sentiments and not enough images to warrant buying it, but I do enjoy seeing it in action on your blog!

    Have fun creating some SU! samples! I am not sure I’ll make it to convention this year, but it would be nice to so I could see your wonderful projects there.
