CSS - Sketch Blog Hop - 8/12/2011

It is another StampTV blog hop. This time it is a sketch blog hop. I really like sketch challenges. I do believe that those are my favorites.  If you came from Melissa Cash's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can also go to StampTV to see a list of all those participating.

The sketch was created by Melissa Cash who is also celebrating her birthday today. Happy Birthday Melissa! We decided to surprise her and design birthday cards using her sketch! We wish you a wonderful birthday Melissa and here's the birthday card I came up with:


I do believe that I am into the fall colors mode already! My order from GinaK arrived a couple of days ago and I just had to use the new StampTV kit! The stamps and the awesome designer paper and the twine all came from this fun and versatile set. I did a little paper piecing too and used some Vivid Garnet ink for the sentiment and the inside of the frog. The flowers were colored in using copics. The pearls were not in the set but from my stash of embellishments that we all seem have around.
Now hop on over to visit Tera Fujan! I am sure she has some inspiration for you as well. If you want to start at the beginning  or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.


Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (August 16th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
