Tuesday Morning Sketches - on Wednesday!

This was the card I created for last week's sketch, which I was SLOW to finish =)
Stamps: Verve Beautiful You, Stitched Bkgd
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Hologram Highlights Embossing Powder, Mini Brads, Corner Rounder

Head over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches Blog to get challenged this week because Sketch 10 is a goodie and I was too excited when my newest stamp arrived...and was perfect for this sketch. This is for Hallie at Wonderful World of Weiners, who's been bugging me for a weiner if only I had her address to ship it to her, I could make her a collection =)

Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Autumn Vine DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Going Gray
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Latte Button 

In honour of the laughs I get every time I head to her blog, I found this stamp at Kritters in the Mailbox and had it shipped to me. I'd say it's a winner of a stamp.

Speaking of winners, on Sunday, we enjoyed the racetrack for my brother in law's birthday and guess who picked a winner in the first race we arrived in time for? Yep - that'd be me. At just over 10-1 odds, Classy Too came through for my like the champion she is and I won $20.50 on my $2 bet! Love when that happens. MrP had two winners and I had two winners of the six races we watched, so we came out on top with our little bets.

Don't forget to head over to Digital-Ink Co Challenge Blog & play along with our challenge - you even get the poppy as a freebie to have fun with!
