My Turn to Host Sketch Saturday

Happy Saturday! I hope that your weekend is off to a fantastic start. We have a wedding today, a birthday party for my little nephew tomorrow and on Monday we are “doing our tomatoes”. My neighbour and I can 10 bushels every year and then have delicious sauce for the rest of the year! What are your plans?

Today it is my turn to host the Sketch Saturday Challenge. I am super excited to share my little sketch with you and also let you know that Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring my week! Whoo Hoo! Kimmie is going to give the winner three stamps of their choice! What a great prize!

To top off my excitement, I also get to choose and invite a guest designer for the month of September! I am so happy that my good friend, the incredibly sweet and amazingly talented Inge agreed to be our guest!

Without further ado, here is my little sketch. I hope you like it :)

Here is my card featuring one of Kraftin’Kimmie’s Moonlight Whispers stamps: Emelia 

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 174

The little airplane comes with the stamp and is perfect to add as a little embellishment. I added some felt that I cut into the shape of clouds behind the plane itself. The paper is all old SU! which I have in my stash and I love the fall colors. They inspired my color palette for the image. The sentiment is from an old Verve Stamps set. I just love their gorgeous fonts and inspirational sentiments. I got my stamp from Lacey’s store Stamp & Create.

So, I hope you will find a little pocket of time this week to join our challenge and try out my sketch. If you only knew how nerve-wracking I find it to create a sketch!

Please pop over to the Sketch Saturday Blog. Dear Kimmie also found some time to make a card for the challenge. You can see her card and Inge’s as well as the rest of the SS DT. We also are welcoming some new members to our team. I’m not telling you who….just come on over and be ready to be INSPIRED!

Thanks for stopping by!
