Saturday and Unscripted Sketches and a CPS sketch

Well already Saturday again - have to head back to work tomorrow. BUT have enjoyed my time off. Started on stripping the wall paper in the kitchen - good thing I didn't start here and left it to last because it's HORRIBLE. Spent all day yesterday and got two strips off. UGH. This is worse than all the bathrooms and it's the largest room by far because I have it throughout the kitchen and breakfast area. Going to tackle some more. This time though I'm going to hire out the texturing and just do the painting. When I paint this I'm going to have to carry it on through the rear entry and the panty/laundry room so FUN times!
Today I have my card for Unscripted Sketches - I flipped it around a little because I wanted to use this stamp. Papers are Echo Park - stamp is a Rachelle Anne Miller from Paper Works Co.

Next I wanted to play along with the CPS sketch this week and came up with this - again using up my stash of Echo Park papers together with a Unity Stamp.Thanks for stopping by!

Unscripted Sketches

Happy Saturday to you - off looking at property again so posting this in advance. Here's my card this week for the sketch at Unscripted Sketches. Used some Basic Grey papers for this and a Unity Stamp. And of course the added challenge this week was to use stitching which I love to do anyway!

Saturday and Unscripted Sketches and some Core'dination's

Saturday AGAIN!! It goes by sooo fast - back to work again tomorrow. Headed off to the grocery store and to get this house cleaned up for another week. Right now there's boys sleeping all over the floors around here - Jason had some friend's over last night. Don't know why they can't sleep on a bed??? Today I'm going to show the card I did for this week's sketch over at Unscripted Sketches. This is using a Rachelle Miller stamp.

Next I wanted to show the work I sent with Core'dination's to CHA this year. Was thrilled that Mindy picked so many of the things I created to take along. First is a card using the Jillibean Collection

More CPS - Core'dination's and Creative Scrappers

Catching up and SOOO glad to be off - long week! Here's my card for the 10th day of CPS's Anniversary Party - keeping up so far - I've done them all! Used My Mind's Eye for this as well as well as a Papertrey Ink stamp.

Then for Day 11 of the CPS Anniversary Party, I made this card using Core'dination's cardstock - used a Spellbinder's Die cut to cut the flower and the leaves - first time I've tried using them on felt but FUN!

Then for today's sketch over at CPS's Anniversary Party I made this card - pulled some papers from my last Noel's Kit for this and a stamp I love from Stampabilities.
Then as you know every month now we have had a color challenge over at Core'dinations. This is the color scheme for February - was so glad not to see the traditional pink and red! Here's my take on the color scheme and I used the sketch over at Creative Scrappers.
