Well as you know every Saturday I host a sketch challenge. I know I have made mention before………but just in case you are new here-There is NO time limit. Just play when you can. I just want you all to get motivated! There are no real “rules”, just go with what inspires you!

This weeks sketch uses the KEYWORD mytimess03. So if you upload somewhere-like www.splitcoaststampers.com that would be great to use. Just send us a link here, so we can view your creation!

I am having fun using the Corel PaintShop Pro for these.

Hope you like it.


This week my sketch allowed me to seriously WHIP OUT, a card for my friend’s 30th birthday. I didn’t want to FOCUS on the fact she just turned 30, and I was late (of course) getting her, her gift :C by like OVER a month. I HAD the gift, I just didn’t SEE her.  So I went with “3”.

So here it is

Cards is typical A2 size

I used Papertrey Ink Floral Frenzy, and Border’s & Corners square set.For cardstock I chose Papertrey Ink white (there is NOTHING better!) , Aqua mist, vellum cardstock(for the butterfly -a Martha Stewart punch) along with a weave patterned paper by Martha Stewart. Ribbon is Also Martha. Buttons SEI,and Martha cardstock/ink in tealish color. Lets not forget my square punches.


Do you see the little gifts in the back? They are wrapped with Martha Stewart wrapping paper. They totally inspired me to create this card “to match”.

I began by randomly stamping/overlapping my squares. I used a hobby blade to make slits, for my ribbon to pass through. That is one of my favorite things to do.

I then stamped my flowers, on my weaved paper, and layered punched out. I made sure they weren’t all “centered”. I then adhered each one onto the tealish cardstock. LOTS of dimension to this. I LOVE my dimensionals 😀

Be sure you check out the team! I am certain they will inspire you further!
