Merci

I can't believe it's Wednesday already! Wednesday is Sketch Challenge day over at SCS and my first card is for today's Sketch Challenge 164. Today's sketch was extra fun, because it came from one of Leslie Miller's beautiful cards. You probably already know Leslie...she's a mega-talented stamper and part of my up-up line. On top of being talented and creative, she's just as nice as can be! You can check out her card that the sketch was based on HERE and her AMAZING blog, Running With Scissors, HERE!
I got to try out my new Merci stamp set for the challenge card...always fun to have a new set to play with. Plus the price was right, thanks to SAB...FREE!!! Hey, did you notice the new Hodgepodge Silver Flower Ribbon Pull? It's one of the fun little piece that come in the new Silver HP set that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog on March 1st!
The Butterfly & Heart images on my second card got a little dusting of Dazzling Diamonds glitter which gave them the most wonderful shimmer = ) ! I love that glitter...it's fun, fun stuff!!!
I think Friday is going to be BLOG CANDY day! You can help me celebrate my One-Year Anniversary as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator = ) !!

you've only been a demonstrator for a YEAR?!? you must've been an avid stamper for many before, because your sense of design is just too keen for a newbie! congrats!

Nancy, both of these cards are spectacular! LOVE what you've done with the sketch on the first one, and love the bling on the second one!

Wow, I wasn't sure I particularly liked this stamp set, but now that I see what you have done with it, I love it. I can't believe you have only been a S.U. demonstrator for a year! Congratulations! You are truly blessed with an artistic talent.
Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous work!

Pink! I love these cards! I can't get enough pink and flowers, especially since I live in a house full of grown men!

OMG Nancy, your coloring is Gorgeous on both of your cards. I love your colors and layouts of both cards. Same stamp set, but very different cards :-) I am off to finish my SC164 card. I did upload my WT154 window card. I always forget about that technique. Happy 1st Anniversary you talented girl you!!!
