...a little latte

Tuesday means it is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!


Haven't you been enjoying our January Guest Sketch Artist, Amy Sheffer?!!!

Well, she is back with another fun sketch!


As I was digging through my various 6x6'ers....I may or may not have a ton of them....I came across my Basic Grey Nook and Pantry one...Oh, it's been much too long since I've used those fabbie papers so here you go:

I think if I counted correctly, I used 7 different patterns out of the Nook and Pantry Collection..might be my all time record:)

Okay deets on my card...I used my FAVORITE Skipping Stones Design set, Funny Coffee Vol.#1.  I typically do the traditional banner but I've been loving the semi-circle version....Do you see that lace doily strip towards the bottom of the card...it was part of a borders page that I fussy cut....psssstttt....going to let you in on a secret....I surprised myself by NOT stitching on this card...gasp!  I know...what the heck?

  11. love it and isn't it funny how we forget about the old papers we loved when new ones come into our life.
    7 papers now that has got to be a record. I don't think I have ever done more than 4 or 5.

  16. A great take on the sketch Amy! I would have been too scared to use so many different papers on one card, but you proved that it can look so good! Also, I thought I actually saw stitching on the card, but when I look closer, it was only the paper! A trick on the eye, LOL!
