Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

This week, for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, you could choose any previous sketch challenge and use that as your inspiration....I discovered that this is easier said than done!

I downloaded about 10 old sketches, and have been fiddling about with this challenge ever since last Monday. It was one of those projects that was worked on, left, pondered, shuffled, left, worked on, left, pondered, shuffled (you get the picture). I was determined not to be thwarted by it though, so finally I wrapped it up this afternoon:

List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Kraft, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss (Textured) and Tempting Turquoise.
Accessories: Simply Chartreuse, Raspberry Fizz, Vintage Cream and Hawaiian Shores Pure Wool Felt (PTI), Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection (PTI), Simply Chartreuse, Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian Shores Vintage Buttons (PTI), Linen and Canvas Impression Plate (PTI), White Embroidery Thread, Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon (PTI), Chit Chat Rub-Ons (SU), Dimensionals (SU) and SNAIL Adhesive (SU).

I ended up using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 58 (thanks for the inspiration Karen):

If anyone knows where I can find the instructions for the right Cuttlebug Sandwich to use with the PTI Impressions Plates, I'd be most appreciative. I don't think I have it quite squared away, and the impression that I am getting is not all that good yet.

You should also know that this is a MONSTER-sized card. I think the end product was something like 8 inches long.  It started with the felt flowers and just kept getting bigger, and bigger and bigger. I guess you could use it as one of those cards you pass around the office for every man and their dog to sign ;-). Should make for interesting times when I go to make an envie for it too!

I am simply pooped now. I spent just over three hours in the doctors' surgery this morning (it was one of those no-appointment ones because my usual doc was full). In the end the doc I saw confirmed that I have a head cold! Zowie Cavey!! Glad I spent my day productively ;-).

See you later alligator.

Hi Sam,

looks like the pondering time was worth it:) I found the link for the sanwiches
I needed to look it up again anyway since someone seems to have dropped my notes down the gap between my cupboard and the bench!!
Have a good weekend :)

Wow - beautiful card Sam! Love the bright colours.

There is a thread on Splitcoastsampers about the PTI Impression plates - worth a read and might help you: I don't have them so haven't a clue.
