A Sketch and Some Spots and Stripes

Good Morning!

Ahhh, so happy to see you again Mr. Friday! Hope you've all had a great week. Ours was pretty busy. Had to learn new routines for school and work, yep back to normal now that summer is officially over. So sad :( Here's hoping for a fun Fall season though!

Friday's are fun as always, today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. At JM this week we have a sketch by the fabby Dawny! And remember, as always you must follow the challenge theme and use a Magnolia image to qualify for the blog candy prize.

I've used this sweet Tilda with her newspapers, not sure of the correct name. I colored her with Copics. The papers are K and Company and I've distressed the edges with scissors. I embellished with flowers, brads, and some ticket sentiments from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits at:
Fab n Funk: What Eva
Artful Inkables: Distressed Out
Sentimental Sundays: A Recipe

Next is my Stamp Something card using our challenge theme of Spots and Stripes. And I've used a Pixie Cottage stamp in honor of our challenge sponsor Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.

I went for a vintage feel on this card and used some Graphic 45 papers and stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The image was colored with Copics and then I added the Crackle glue to give the cracked glass effect.  Really love that effect and so easy to do with that glue! I've embellished with flowers and eyelets and used the same ticket sentiment as on my JM card. I just can't get enough of the tickets!

This card also fits at:
Paper Play: autumn is coming
Stampin for the Weekend: Vintage

Thanks for dropping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stamping,
