This is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. The stamps are from Stampscapes. I bought Stampscape stamps a while back and played with them. Recently a lady on one of my Yahoo groups started posting pictures using them. To say the least it made me get them back out and realize that I love the look. I am not perfect at doing it,but it is fun.

I got out my magnolia stamps and was trying to play around with them. I was trying to play around with paper piecing. The dress on this little girl is pieced with some paper I had in my stash. I love coloring with the copic markers, but I really like this look also. The theme this week at Scrap It With Song is Isn't She Lovely. That seems to fit with my little Magnolia girl. I did the background of this card with a crimper.

I need a thank you for my sister-in-law that took us to the airport when we went to Colorado last week. The colors for this card came from the challenge at Jazzy Paper Designs. The inspiration for the challenge is a Thelonius Monk Show Poster. The stamp I used is from Stampin' Up. I made the embossing plate to emboss the background.
This is really pushing the limits. This is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We just got back from Colorado on Friday and I had to work all weekend. I needed a thank you card for the friends that we stayed with while we were there. I took over 400 pictures while we were there. Some people on my Yahoo group take pictures of the sky and then stamp on it. They are awsome. Really wanted to do that for the challenge, but need to practice so I went back to my comfort zone.

One more card made this week. The sketch came from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. The colors came from the challenge at Stamp Royalty.

Here is the card I made for the Critter Challenge this week. It uses one of the new techniques from the current (August/ September) newsletter called Silent Night. This technique uses Sanitizing Gel to give this wonder marbeling effect. I'm not sure I did it exactly right, because my embossing powder is so random, but I think it has a lot of character. The flower stamp is from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is a a clear set from InkaDinkado.
