Sweet Sketch Challenge


I just love the “Golden Oldies” stamps by Art Impressions.  I bought a whole bunch of them last year and then completely forgot about them.  So, needless to say my next few cards will feature these and the “Girlfriends” stamps.  I got so use to the ease of using digitals that my rubber stamps got forgotten!

I wish that was me on a beach or by the pool sipping an exotic drink, instead of dealing with minus 35 degree Celsius here in Canada! 

I enjoyed working with the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I colored the image with copics and used a spellbinders die to mount and frame it.  For some reason my papers look more red then shades of coral.  The embossing folder is called Baby’s Breath by Cuttlebug.  The sentiment is an old one from Create With TLC.
