Sweet Sunday Sketch #141

Hi there! Has it really been 2 whole weeks since I blogged? Sorry I've been so quiet - things have been hectic around here with work, school, and sadly we had a death in my extended family a few weeks ago that has had me a bit distracted. Anyway, I have a few posts I want to try to get in before the end of the month, so the next few days will be a bit of catch-up around here. First though, how about a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge? It's a fun one this week!


I made the last of my Halloween cards for the year, finally getting a new Verve set inky:


I couldn't get this one to photograph well and the ribbon ended up looking a lot darker / brighter than the orange in the DP - you'll just have to trust me that in real life, it's all nice and matchy-match. Aren't those ghosts cute? And the pretty font on the sentiment? Love it. They're from the new Boo to You set (Verve). There's also a really great pumpkin in the set that I can't wait to use on a couple of Thanksgiving cards!!

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch.
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

I hope I schedule this post correctly. Have you mainlanders had daylight savings time changes yet? We don't do that in Hawaii and I always get confused when that happens (and obviously don't even know for sure when it happens - I just know that at some point most of the rest of you Americans will "fall back", right?). Oh well. I guess we'll find out. Somebody tell me when daylight savings time starts (ends? whatever).

LOVE those little ghosts and your bow is gorgeous!! Love the little button accent. I always have trouble shooting reds and they always look off - like orangey or something. But your bow looks pretty matchy-match to me!

Another fabulous card Jen. I simply ADORE your style. Oh and when you find out about DLS can you let me know, because over here in Perth we don't do it either, and with you all being over there, I have absolutely NO idea!!! ;-)

Welcome back Jen!! What a sweet card love the ghost image & wasn't this a fab sketch without any weird sized panels or tilted panel?! We fall back next weekend; they changed it to after Halloween a couple of years ago

So spooky and cute!!! I sometimes have issues with colours not looking matchy matchy either when I edit the photographs...so annoying! Your card looks amazing though!!
