Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

This week's challenge over at OCC is a gorgeous Sketch Challenge brought to you by our fab Hostess Jenny! I love this sketch and to see the actual sketch (I'm away from home again!) you can head over to the OCC to see it, along with the sweet designs of my counterparts!
Each time I load my card into the group blog, I get so excited to see what's in store for you for the challenge!!!
I used the ever sweet Marti from InStyle Stamps , who appears to be enjoying her Blue Curaco Martini immensely! She is one Classy Chicka for sure!
I coloured her with Copics. On my travels to Woodstock yesterday, I had the opportunity to stop in and have a visit with Em from Stamping Bella! Wow! her store is fun and full of eye candy galore! She is the sweetest and I'm looking forward to stopping again when I'm up that way!
I picked up a Cupcake Diva Stamp, some Yummalicious Prima Printed Twill, Buttons and two new Cosmo Cricket Paper Packs! Oh and a few more Prism Pencils (thanks Paula! lol!)
Jacqui and I made a trip to Scrapping Great Deals last night, before we filled our tummies at the Mandarin. I picked up the DP that I used on the card............yes, when it comes to Designer Paper I am likened to a Crack Addict...............If I pull just one sheet, I'm doomed.............doomed! Well it started at Em's and carried over to Sheila's! Anyway, this DP is from We R Memory Keepers Tiffany's line.............yep Jax just HAD to bring it to my attention.
The Ribbon is my absolute'll see it over and over on my cards until I have run out.............then you'll just see water spots on my creations from the tears falling onto the place where that ribbon would have accented my card so perfectly!
Can you tell I'm a little giddy this morning? Just spending time with my best girls makes me happy! The Rub on is from Stampin' Up! and was applied directly to the Satiny, ever so smooth chocolately rich ribbon! Half Pearls are from K&Co.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'll have another post for you on Monday and then next week you'll see some awesome sneak peeks from Hanna Stamps, Pink Cat Studio, InStyle Stamps and Our Craft Lounge..............this means that I'll be busy as a bee and the posts may be scarce for the next few.....................
Stampin' my fingers to the Bone!
