Rockin’ along with MFT Sketch Challenge #270! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)This may be my most literal take on any sketch ever. LOL. 🙂
For this card, I was inspired by the one and only, my friend, Susan R. Opel. Susan literally writes the blog on inspiration, so I find it fitting. ♥ SRO has an eye for fashion (and other fun) inspired card creations. Check out these examples of Susan’s awesome inspirations: HERE, HERE, and HERE. I mean, Yo! That’s fun. 🙂
Way back in October (?), I was flipping through TV channels late one night, and saw Julianna Margulies on Stephen Colbert. Checkout her spectacular Chevron dress!! 🙂 It stuck in my head, and I told Susan I would just have to make something inspired by it. 😉

I was all set to attempt the MFT Sketch Challenge #265 this week, and boom, realized the Color Challenge #38 was on too! Twofer! (Check it all out: My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)Here’s my take: Laina’s Undeniable Chemistry keeps the fun coming!

I used the small stitched Heart from Die-namics LLD Hot Cocoa Cups and the small heart from the Die-namics Candy Jars. 😉

MFT Sketch Challenge #259 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Take a break from the holiday craze and join us! Only a couple left after this one for 2015!
This week’s sketch:Here is my take this week:
Poof! I find this a refreshing take on the Christmas cards. Do you? When I finished this card, I thought, Dang, I think Erin has rubbed off on me! Something about its overall feel reminds me of Erin’s fabulously bold style. 🙂
I originally had the three leafy greens exactly like the sketch has them. It looked awkward, so I took those three sketch elements and bundled them. I love to see when people follow Sketches tightly. (Check out Miriam‘s because she’s really good like that). I sometimes (ok, often) end up tweeking a few things on my cards. 😉
I didn’t get to making another Sketch card, but I did make this fun guy:
I tried soooooooooo long to resist ordering this set, because I felt pretty good about my collection of Christmas stamps. But, I’m weak. This one particular Santa made me order it. Plus, I did not have any Santa stamps. So obviously, it’s justifiable. 😉 😉I clear embossed his outline and then used watercolors to give him color! Too fun! 🙂

This week’s sketch:
Here is my take this week:
I thought this was a fun and WAY different color combo for me. I flipped the sketch, swapped the rectangle for a circle, and put it all together! 🙂I didn’t get around to making a second Sketch card this week. I’ve been trying to get a little ahead and also making MANY cards for friends and family that have been kind enough to help me on my fundraising efforts. I’m so grateful. 🙂
I originally made a card almost identical to these for Sketch #245. 🙂 I’ve made and completed just these cards, so far. They look awesome together! This is typically not my thing, to make many of the same card. But for the right cause(s), I did it! I think the best part is designing the cards and picking the products, so I rarely make doubles+ etc. 😉

Inspiration is EVERYWHERE. Literally.
Cath Edvalson has a new adventure: Hip and Hooray!! Well, I’ve always found Cath’s finds inspiring, so I wanted to participate in her inaugural Tuesday’s Take…details found HERE.
You can participate in these challenges as well. There are most certainly not limited to papercrafters, just your imagination. 🙂
This was the image she selected to inspire…and boy does it ever! Colors, pencils, rainbow…ahhhh! 🙂 I just had to make something.
I don’t do many pastel-ish colors, but I just am enamored with how this turned out…so maybe I should!? Hooray for Sherbet colors! 🙂 Enjoyable.
This card was made with the following from My Favorite Things:

Here’s the sketch for this week:
Here is my card for the week:
I’m unsure as to who made this!? Between the color combo and flowers (yes, again!), I need to check my temperature. Haaaaa! I try to stretch out of my comfort zone now and again, and let me tell you, this one is a huge stretch for me. 😉 Should hold me over for awhile.
I had to splatter the inside of the card to balance myself out a bit. LOL.
Oh, and be sure to stretch your dies! I did so a few times on this one with both the Blueprints 23 and the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX. You can get a bigger bang from your supplies. 🙂
Be sure to check out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog for all the different takes! 🙂
