I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Taylor's Friday Sketch Challenges Are Back

It's super-duper that Taylor is back with her Friday Sketch Challenges. Here's this week's sketch, TESC # 135.

I made two cards to celebrate the TESC return to Fridays.

First up is a happy little doggie with big dreams about big bones.

I pulled out some of my left over papers and supplies from the Pet's Place Project Pantry from last summer to put this one together. Those bone paper clips are so cute don't you think? The thought bubbles are Die-namics dies cut from more mustard card stock and sponged with brown ink. The bones and paw print border are stickers from the Max and Whiskers line. The kraft background is stamped with the TE stitched background stamp and embossed with a cuttlebug EF.

The second card is a sweet treat of yummy, sparkly cupcakes.

These cupcakes are frosted with glitter and sparkly fluff. The cupcake papers are all paper pieced. The background turquoise paper is embossed with the TE scallops and circles impressions die and cut out with a big scalloped square Nestie. The patterned papers and cupcake brad are again from an old Project Pantry set.

Isn't it fun that the same sketch can yield such two different looks? I'm entering card one in The Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday # 49 Challenge as well as the TESC #135 challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.
