After the boys went home this morning, Grandpa went golfing, leaving Grandma to enjoy a little peace and quiet – and stamping! I tried a few sketches, this first one being Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 69 as featured on the The Sweetest Thing blog. It also meets the criteria – to make a card with berries – on the Cards Blog.
I colored this image with markers and then added some Buttercup ink to the background with my blending pen.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Olive cardstock; Memory Box Homespun paper pad; Black, Olive, and Buttercup ink pads; Tulip and Garden Green markers; Fruitful Delight and Say it in Style stamp sets; Cranberry mini brads; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Dove blending pen.
This next card is based on Inchie Card Sketch #6. Lisa Stahl provided the sketch for the Inchie Inklings blog. I am wishing I had done something different with this card – maybe embossed the images or mounted them to the card with foam tape – something to give it a little more pizzazz. The textured cardstock helps, but it isn’t quite enough.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Black, Cranberry, and White Daisy Textured cardstock; Black ink pad; Inkadinkado Butterflies & Birds and CTMH Thank You stamp sets.

I am glad I had the afternoon to unwind a bit. It’s back to the mines tomorrow. Darn … LOL. I hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Your visits and comments are appreciated. “See” you tomorrow!
