Super Sketch Sunday on Thursday!

Well, I finally got to Amy's Super Sketch Sunday Challenge, and it's Thursday! Time just seems to be disappearing for me lately. This is one of my FAVORITE challenges to do every week, and I just can't believe it took me this long to get to it. I usually do it on Sunday, but this past Sunday was busy with rehearsal, and my husband was gone all day with choir concerts. . .so no break for mommy! I even had to take BOTH girls to rehearsal with me. Anyway, I LOVE to do Amy's sketches. If you haven't visited Amy's blog, you should. . .and try one of her challenges! I did my first Scrap Stash Saturday Challenge this past Saturday. It really makes for a lot of fun and inspiration. . .especially if you don't have TIME to think up a starting point for your card! LOL This card could actually be used for both challenges because I got the patterned paper out of my scrap stash! Trying to use up those scraps! Hopefully the next thing you'll see me post is some thank you sets for my husband or shower invites for my sister! I just have to be inspired to come up with something cute and creative. They may end up being very simple so I can just get them finished! Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Riveting, Faux Ribbon; Paper- DCWV Spring Stack, Basic Black, Certainly Celery; Ink- VersaMagic Midnight Black, Red Magic, SU Real Red; Accessories- small and large oval punch, red ric rak, circle punches, Cuttlebug Flower die, button from Making Memories, black grosgrain.

Wow Charmaine, that looks great. I haven't done Amy's challenge yet either. This is a hard layout for me. I might have to break down and try it. You always make challenges look easy!
