Your Next Sketch for You To Try

Well, I've SO had the bug to stamp and craft, but have been super duper busy getting my mom moved to her new digs and helping out at Scrapper's Boutique for today's National Scrapbook Day festivities--i.e. Pajama Party, as The Cat's Pajamas is our Hostess for the Day up there! I'll be there all day today working and helping out with a couple of Make and Takes I designed. I hope ya'll get to come and see me!

So here we are, at the first Saturday of the month and time for Jen's Sketch for You To Try. That means a brand new sketch with MOUNDS of possibilities. Our sponsor this month is one of my all-time favorites, YOUR NEXT STAMP! Here's a fun little offer they've extended just for you:

I chose to use a new set that I am IN LOVE with called A Good Friend. I didn't have time to fancy up the inside of my card, but go to the website and check out what the inside sentiment says. So fun! Ya'll don't have any friends like this do you? ummmm....ME!!! And ya'll are apparently my good friends, too!

Here's a closer look at the front...And here's the sketch. Jen has all the info on how to play along over on her blog HERE.

There's lots more inspiration/enabling on my SFYTT sisters' blogs, too! Here's a list along with our Guest Designer of the Month, Kerri Michaud! Have fun with the sketch and tell Karen at Your Next Stamp I sent ya! And/or come see me and I'll help you shop today at the Boutique!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I got brave and used my Copics on regular cardstock along with my stamp that I only inked up with dye ink (as opposed to pigment with more staying power). Scary! If you try this (at home), use the markers sparingly, as they may bleed and won't give you as much control as they do when you use a tighter weave cardstock.

Paper: Aqua Mist, White (PTI), Regal Rose (SU!), Lime Twist (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Elegant Eggplant (SU!)
