Sketch Challenge | Creative Scrappers

Hello Friends!

The Month of March is finally here! For us on the East Coast it means spring is around the corner. I am personally anxious for some blue skies and sunshine! 
Let's start the month off with a new sketch shall we? 
This month we have a sketch that will allow you to use some of those left overs you've been hoarding! Yes... we all have a piece or two laying around just waiting for something --- so let's create a layout with those pieces!

You can use 1 photo that measures 4"x4" and another smaller one 2"x2".
Create different sizes of circles and stars and you have one awesome layout!

I would love to see how you interpret this month's sketch.

New Release Blog Hop | Your Next Stamp

It's time for the new February release at YOUR NEXT STAMP!

So Many super cute stamp sets are being released today. These are all great for birthdays, thank you notes, hello friend and so much more!  The new sets include Fire Up the Fun, Music Chicks, Star Girls and so much more!

My first card is a super cute one I must say. I have no relations with firefighters at all but these are too much fun! I colored these with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and some distress ink for my background.  I added some grey and black ink to resemble pavement and I used a small stamp from the Paint Swooches and Splats for the texture in the pavement. I used the Stitched Grass Die for some grass so I could add my little dog and firewoman in the background. I added the firefighter on the front with popdots for dimension and then my sentiments.
