Sketchy Colored Plaid Cats in a Basket

What a day I had! First - I worked 8:30 - 2:30 - I left early because I had a dentist appointment - got done with that (just a cleaning and check up luckily!) - drove home in time to change and go off to Bible Study - that was starting early (6 pm) so that we could go to the Ash Wednesday service that started at 7 pm (Bible study usually goes 6:30-8). After church I just had to stop by Michaels with my 40% off coupon to pick up one of the new punches by EK Success that I've heard everyone blogging about! (and it does work SUPER on the thicker card stock!) THEN I was able to start my card around 9 pm (and you may notice I'm finally getting it loaded here at 11:30 PM!)


I didn't get to stamp yesterday (because I was just too tired!) so I had to make up for it today even though I had a late start. Plus - I just LOVE to do the SCS sketch challenge every week!


So I did use today's SCS sketch. I also got my colors from this weeks Color Throwdown #31 (Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Night of Navy). And I used a basket stamp and plaid designer paper for our Doubledog Dare Challenge from this week's hostess, Joan Ervin.

We'd love to have you join in on our Doubledog Dare Challenge this week - just make a card with a basket and plaid - post it to your SCS gallery and use the keyword DDC so we can come and see your creation! You can see the DDC gallery here.

All the stamps on this card are from the H&M Stamp set called The Cat's Meow. (sorry - just found out this set has sold out and is now retired)

BUT - all the H&M Design Team members are going to be doing Sneak Peeks on Friday and Saturday for 3 new H&M releases available to purchase on Sunday March 1! So be sure to check back to see the new sets! Plus - we will all be doing a Blog Hop on Sunday showing you some fun spring crafts to help get rid of the winter blues!! You won't want to miss that!


Ok - so now I'm off to bed! thanks so much for coming by today!!

Paper: white: PTI, kiwi kiss, bashful blue, night of navy: SU, DP Art Impressions - pool plaid
