sketch set

I've seen some stampers put together a set of coordinating cards using weekly sketches from around blogland and today I thought I'd post mine. I made these at the midnight crop (yes, I should have been working on scrapbook pages, but I didn't have any photos ready, shame!). I am nearing the end of my Maine Blueberry paper pack and I think this is the first time I'll use the whole thing! It's so sad - bye sweet blueberries.... I'm also using Trendy Trees (sentiments) and Cheep Talk for my images.

My first card is from Taylor Van Bruggen's TECC64. There isn't an ounce of ribbon on it - what???!

My second card is from Lori Craig's WSC77 and it turns out this card is pretty much exactly like Dawn Easton's card HERE. I swear I didn't case her - we just think alike *wink*. It's very eerie we used the same exact sets on our cards.

My last card is from Verve, VSAPR3. I'm always finishing these late and can't enter the contest for free stamps. Bummer! Maybe one day...


I hope you enjoyed my tour of Blogland. I'll see you back soon!
Karen
