The Countdown Continues ~ Day 18~Sketch 18

I'm getting excited. Real excited. We have 14 days left until my birthday. AND my counter recently went over 15,000! Normally I'd post blog candy at this point, but I already am giving away everything but the kitchen sink. hehehe (Speaking of Kitchen Sink, have you seen the new line of stamps from the company by that name? Check this review out!)
Anyway...
I posted that review yesterday in hopes that you all would start getting excited too. This basket is overflowing. I'm telling you.... it's going to cost a fortune to mail. You really should see the other half of the loot. WoW!
But, on to the day's sketch so I can get stamping on tomorrow's sketch!!
Here is my card. I made this specifically for a
holiday card challenge from Samm:




















Card Recipe:
Stamps~ All Year Cheer 3, Sanded, Linen, Rose Leaves (Rubber Stampede)
Ink~ Choc Chip, Cappuccino Delight K Pad
Paper~ Confetti Cream, Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, 2 Basic Grey "Mellow" DPs
Accessories~ Horizontal Slot Punch, SU Ruffled Choc Ribbon, Linen thread
I LOVE how it turned out! I used my new "Mellow" Basic Grey papers I was so fortunate to have won from the one and only Julia Stainton! I would love to have more of these papers. I love Basic Grey!
Here is the easy peasy sketch for today:
And today I add to the loot 14 Cellos in 3 different sizes. I've seen so many great treat and gift bags done with these cellos so I wanted to add an assortment to my birthday treasure box!
There are 2 large gusseted bags (5x3x11); 5 small flat bags (3x5); and 7 large flat (6x8).
That's all from me today. I've got some deadlines today and Katie has an appointment and then I have to go grocery shopping...bleh!
Hugs to You ALL!

Your card is wonderful! Autumn is my favorite time of year and you did a great job picking the perfect fall elements!

Love the Basic Grey and you coordinated everything to match perfectly, but not hide or outshine the beauty of the paper. I need to get crackin' on some cards too:)

Love your card. Don't you wish you didn't have a care in the world...just hang around the house scrapping and card making! Ahhhh...sounds good to me.

I did manage to make 2 more cards, but don't have a blog to upload them too. So,I will have to upload them and email you when I have a "free moment"...what ever that is. :)

Lindsay said...

Angel, your blog is so much fun lately! I'm enjoying it immensely. I'd love to win, but even if I don't, I'm gonna have a blast trying these sketches. I better get busy!

I'm such a DORK! I forgot to comment on your cute card #18. I guess I got so excited telling you about the flat rate USPS boxes in the Loot Review post, I forgot to follow the rules. DOH!
