Banana Split Sunday - a Sketch Challenge

Good Morning! It's Banana Split Sunday! I haven't posted in a while, sorry about that. I have however, been posting to the 2RedBananas blog so can I have a reprieve? :) This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and here is the sketch:

I made two cards with this sketch because I had paper left and it just felt good to make 2 - LOL! This sketch is great to use scraps and I'm pretty sure we all have lots of those :)

I'm definitely ready for fall, I love the colors, the smells, and the temps. So I used fall colors for these.

Stamps - Aug/Sept Journaling Spot - 2RedBananas
Other: ricrac, wrinkle ribbon, Glimmer Mist (second card), pop dots, flower from my stash

Be sure to check out the design team's creations!

Pumpkin Penny

Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day :) It's so nice to have a 3 day weekend.

I apologize for the colors on my picture, I'm getting worse at that instead of better, what's that about? :)

I want to introduce you to Pumpkin Penny, one of 2RedBananas September releases. She is designed by Mindy Baxter. I just love Penny, she is so much fun to color and 'embellish'. I used Basic Grey's new Indian Summer paper with Penny and some Bazzill cardstock.

I also used some Spiced Cider Blingz (which is on sale right now) on the pumpkins and then raffia to mimic the straw that the pumpkins are sitting on. I added some brown wrinkled ribbon and that was it. I LOVE fall, the colors, the temps, the smells.......sigh :)

Banana Split Sunday - Stripes and Dots

Good Morning! It's been a while since I've posted, sorry about that. Today, though, is Banana Split Sunday at 2RedBananas. The challenge for this week is to use Stripes and Dots. I love stripes and dots together :)

This is what I came up with. I even got to use lots of buttons which I seem to just collect and use just a few at a time so my collection grows faster than I use them.

Stamps: Early Birds, Birthday Chicken(sentiment) - 2RedBananas
Paper: October Afternoon - Hometown Collection and Bazzill
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copics, Inkssentials white pen
Other: buttons from my stash, nesties,

Be sure to go over to the 2RedBananas blog to see what the dt members created and to play along with us.

Check back soon because our Week of Peeks begins tomorrow :)
