Sweet Sunday Sketch 113- Like the Way you Roll

Hello and happy Sunday. We are wrapping up our Spring Break week here in the Henke house. We just arrived home from a fabulous vacation on our first cruise. I was smart and worked ahead a bit and made my card before we left, and now  I am buried in piles of laundry. It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time. Woohoo!

I'm super excited about this one. The Let's Roll set from Lawn Fawn is just soooo adorable. I can't wait to play with it more. I kept my card simple, coloring up one of the rolls and a pair of chopsticks. 

I added them to the top of a stitched circle from Lil' Inker Designs. Ahhhhh! those stitched mats are great. I stamped the sentiment in Pink Lemonade ink to coordinate with the pretty Let's Polka papers. Here's a closer look. I added a small pink twine bow, and topped it with a Pretty Pink Posh sequin. 

Here is this week's sketch. My card is a weeee bit skinnier than usual. It measures 3.75 x 5.5 inches. 

Stop by Karen's Blog for all three challenge details. 

 Don't forget to see what the Sweet Sunday Sketch team has done this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a fabulous Sunday and a great start to your week.

RC-Basketball Thank-you's

March Madness is in full swing. Basketball is ALL that seems to be on my TV these days. My boys wrapped up their basketball  seasons the other week. I made this thank-you card for one of the coaches. I used The Deconstructed Sketch 142 for my layout. 

I really love using words to creat a background. I chose the Reverse Confetti set, All About You, to make my customized circle. It's important to alternate your placement of your words when you do this. I love using my Stamp Press for this job. The lines and clear mount, help it go quickly. 

I then added another "thank  you" sentiment over top with the Beautiful Banners stamp set and matching Confetti Cut die. I tucked in an orange basketball die I have in my stash. The banner pieces along the right side are from Tag Me. I tucked in a few enamel dots to finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your week is going well.

over at the TCP Blog.

All the fun starts there....
and you'll find all the release details there.

First up is this sweet sock monkey card. I told you I fell in love with him. The stamp set is called Hang in There Baby.  I was inspired by fellow teammate, Wendy and used him to make this baby card. 

I used the Cloud Border card (you'll want to make sure to pop this into your cart tonight, if you don't already have it. It goes with so many of the TCP stamp sets. Especially, the ones releasing today!) to create my sky. 

There are plenty of fantastic sentiments included with this Hang In There Baby set, but I chose pair this cutie with the sentiment from And Baby Makes Three

Today is Tuesday, and that means it's ALSO time for the TCP Tuesday Challenge. Noelle has a Cloudy Day Challenge....use clouds on your card. I did. I hope you will play along this week. Check out all the challenge details for the TCPTues262 over on the TCP Blog. 

I also have a pretty Anniversary card using the amazing new Numbers Plate  and coordinating stamp set, Your Number is Up

I used the inner circle die from Framed Up 2 to stamp the word "happy" and then added the numbers to the center. I created a long banner piece to stamp the "anniversary" stamp and then used the new banner die from Framed Up 2 to give it some dimension. I love the versatility with that die. 

Here is a close up of those numbers and the banner. 

I added some touches of pretty with the Heart Trio cut ups, paper curls and gold sequins. 

Jessie is up next!
Meow!! and Happy Shopping!

Here is a closer look at the new stamps and dies I used today.

Have a fantastic week and thanks again for all your kind words during the past week. I've had a blast with the TCP Release!!

TCP Sneaky Peeks Day 7 {right kind of awesome}

We are almost there....The Cat's Pajamas March release is almost here. Today I have a card showing you the amazing Sprinkles the cat and the Flying By Stamp set. 

I used the Deconstructed Sketch from last week to make this card for my friend, Karen. I loooove the sentiment AND she flies planes. I knew she would enjoy it. 

I used the banner from Framed Up 2 along the right side, and the circle frame is also from the same Cut Ups set. It's a must have....seriously, there are so many uses. 

I colored Sprinkles up with Copic markers and added some shimmer with my Spica marker to the props. I also gave her some cool aviator goggles with a small dab of crystal effects. Check out those clouds, too. They are stamps included in the Flying By stamp set. I hit them with some white embossing powder for another layer of texture.
