CSS Alumni Blog Hop: Sketch Challenge

Welcome!! The CSS Alumni Team on STV is doing another Sketch Blog Hop. If you are following the hop you should have come from the very talented DEB FELTS. A complete list of partcipateing members can be found at STAMP TV.

I made two Easter cards today. For this first one I used Theresa Momber's newly released set " Warm With Love " and the flower pot is from Melanie Muenchinger set " Buds And Vases" both sets are by Gina K. Designs. The card stock, embellishments and designer paper is from GKD and the images were colored with Copic's and Prisma Pencils.



For this card I used two of Melanie Muenchinger's sets. " Basket Blessings" and the basket is from " Spring Basket" both by Gina K. Designs. The images were colored with copic's and Prisma pencils. The card stock and designer paper is from GKD. I had a lot of fun making this card, I kept thinking "Can you see me now!!" Yes, I watch to much TV.


Be sure and visit all of the wonderfully talented ladies in the hop tonight and make sure to leave a comment as one lucky commenter will win a stamp set of their choice from Gina K Designs valued up to $24.95. The winner will be announced on Tuesday morning (March 29th).

From here you will want to go the ever so talented GIOVANA SMITH.


Thanks for joining us in this fun hop and good luck!!
