Guest for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge…

It’s sooooo fun to play in challenges here and there… awhile back I won a guest designer position on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges blog with my Hay Rides Kiddos card!!!  YEA!  You can see it HERE.   Love Karen’s sketches!

Thanks Karen for the sweet sketches and the invitation to join the challenge this time!

Here’s the sketch I used today…

Here’s a list of the Sweet Sunday Sketch designers… click to see their fabulous takes on the sketch!


I had to mirror image the sketch so the Penny Black Mimi image would fit between the houses in the October Afternoon pattern paper from a few years ago.   I will always love this house paper!   I’ll be so sad when the last piece is used up… it’s timeless!  The dot and the poinsettia are from the same collection.

The sentiment stamp I used is from a clear set by PaperTrey Ink, called Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.  It was new last year I think.  I stamped it with Colorbox Dark Brown Chalk ink.

Mimi is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I used W3 under the reds, R24, E07 and R59.  Her coat started out with BG10…had to add other BG colors and then use some W1 gray to get it to match the paper.  I edged the papers with Antique Linen Distress ink and the Ink Blending tool.  I used my Perfect Layers Tools for Perfect mats… love, love the 1/16th inch ruler!  For this card I used 1/16th and 3/16ths.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Click over to the Sweet Sketches Challenge and play along!  ttul!

Stamps and supplies I used to make this card… (I couldn’t find the same flower punch I used to link up to, so I linked to another that I also thought about using)
