SNS Layout #183

Last year we went to Florida to see my in-laws for Thanksgiving, sounds terrible doesn't it? Take me back!!!

I love going to my in-laws anytime but going in November is a real treat. We were lucky enough to be able to go out on a date-night while we were there. 

The last time we went we tried to catch a sunset and wouldn't you know it we had a cloudy day!  This time around we had a gorgeous night. It may have been even sweeter because we knew the weather back in Northern Illinois was insane! I believe we got over a foot of snow and it was so COLD on top of that. We knew we should enjoy every moment of this beautiful evening away.

I used up some old thickers and was impressed that I only had to piece together the "e" and the "t's" with a C+L and an F. I am not sure if you can see it but I did some faux stitching up top as well as in the lower right hand corner.

Here is my stitching. I added some starfish and some gold nuggets into the circles.

Just another view. I really adore how each it was to use Sketch #183 to capture this special night.

Here is the sketch I used SNS #183 we would love to have you show us what you have come up with using this or one of our other sketches featured this month.

Come and see us soon!

SNS Card Sketch #151

Hello Dear Readers Happy August! Yes, I actually said August!! Can you believe it is already August I don't know about you but in our neck of the woods (Northern Illinois) we wait and wait and wait for summer and then it gets started and you blink and it is August and you are prepping for school to start back up. Yikes

Anyway, I hope you are having a fun summer. Ours has been busier than ever and we have made a lot of memories that I will be able to scrapbook soon. In the mean time I have been making cards. Some of them have been very elaborate and some of them have been quick and simple.

Today I am sharing a simple monochromatic card that I made using Sketch #151

I have had this stamp set for a very long time. Like many of them I had to have it! I have used it one in this project. One of my goals is to start using them. If I can't figure out why I loved it enough to buy it I need to pass it on, sell it, donate it, something rather than letting it sit in my drawer.

Cardstock - White Daisy, Raspberry
Ink - Raspberry, Charcole
Stamps - So Many Smiles
Other - Hot Pink Crystal Gems

SNS Card Sketch #150

Have you noticed we have a new format for our online monthly crops yet? We now have a new Sketch N Scrap's Monthly Facebook Challenges Group this group is replacing our old crop events allowing us to manage entries and be more interactive. We hope you can join us.

Here is a card I made using the card sketch from earlier this month SNS Card Sketch #150. I tried something new and only colored in the heart and the hair clip on the little girl and love the way it looked. I got those cute little wooden accents and those papers in a swap that I was recently in. They were all so adorable and went so well together.
