Another Post Today

It's been a fun, busy week of stamping for me. I'm so lucky! I really want to get these challenges done so I qualify for the BIG WIN for Verve. So, I'm combining Kristina's color inspiration with a sketch challenge by Julee for the Verve Challenge. I had to laugh when I saw this picture because right now my kid's school is selling SMENCILS and they are "all the rage". What's a "smencil" ? Well, it's a pencil that smells obviously. They do smell really good too. So, it seems I being haunted by pencils today. My daughter bought all ten and they have been sniffing them since they got home:) My card, however, has nothing to do with pencils. Oh, just had the idea to make another card that is a scratch and sniff! Going to work on that....later.
My card came together really quick today. It's ok but not as great as my next one hopefully(wink).I used a new hostess set from the upcoming SU catalog. The image is stamped in Choc Chip Craft ink and clear embossed. I then punched it out with the star punch, layered it (dimensionals) onto a piece of pumpkin pie and trimmed with scissors. This is adhered to a layered piece of Textured White and Baja Breeze. Those brads are SU star brads. They are REALLY heavy. This is all mounted onto the card with dimensionals. The base of the card is White and layered respectfully: Choc Chip and Baja Breeze that both went through my cuttlebug. A strip of Old Olive and some pumpkin twill from Joann's. I then stamped from the Party Hearty set the same saying in Choc chip craft onto Pumpkin and punched out with the Horizontal Slot punch.

I apologize for the "shabby" post. I am in a hurry. Basketball practice is calling. I may have more posts tonight or early tomorrow. The deadline is by noon tomorrow and I'm doing my best...and having fun in the process.
