Woodgrain on Wood? Why not?

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday!!! And it is a new month with a new sketch designer, too, and let me tell you we have a month of FANTASTIC sketches provided by the fabulous Laurie Schmidlin! We also have two AMAZING guest artists this month, Mona Pendleton and my wonderful friend, Diana Fisher!!!! YAY!!!

For today's card I decided to go with a little woodgrain on wood action. Yup. I totally used the Grunge set to stamp woodgrain onto Creative Imaginations Real Wood sheets. You know you're jealous. Just say'n. HA!!!!




SSD-70 Thank You


I created a small tag from the real wood and stamped the sentiment from Heartsong onto it.




Thank You (Sentiment)


And, of course, buttons and bows! You know how I DO SO LOVE buttons and bows!!!!




Thank You (bow)


The papers are Basic Grey and the Buttons are from Foofala. Those adorable pearls on the side? Those are Kaiser Crafts, the stamps, of course, are Skipping Stones, and the ink is Close To My Heart (Brownbag). That little leather piece on the tag is ... ummmm... from my stash?

Here is the sketch:

So...we had a truly AWESOME turnout last week and I would LOVE to see that happen again, so PLEASE come on over and join in the sketchy fun! You know you will love the card...how could you not with this amazing sketch? I know, right? Right. So. Play along with us because you are awesome like that. K? K.

Happy Tuesday!!!  And DON'T forget to check out the awesome work of the Stamp Tramps!!!
