However, Tina's cool sketch design is still being used for this week's sketch challenge on StampTV. Jessica was kind enough to get it posted on Tina's behalf. Come on over to StampTV and play in the challenges! You don't have to, but, if you use Gina K. stamps, your entry goes into the drawing bin twice to win a free Gina K. stamp set!
I chose to use one of the new Gina K. stamp set releases for this month as designed by Asela Hopkins called Fruitful Harvest. These images are GORGEOUS and so much fun to color with whatever coloring medium you choose to use. I used my Copic markers this time around.
As you can see, I chose the apple image from this set, which has a little story behind it. Joanne, from my Doubledog Dare Challenge group, dared us to make a card using apples. I happily set about coloring my image and was thinking about Tina's sketch design when I got the lightbulb idea to make this an ornament for a Christmas card! After I was all done with my card, I re-checked Joanne's challenge requirements and saw that I totally forgot the part about the card having to have an autumn theme. Oi vay!!! Too many things on the brain, I guess, so I'll have to design something else for Joanne's challenge. Yeah, like that's really gonna be a burden----NOT!!
The weather is beautiful here today. My sister and her husband are here all the way from Washington State visiting us for a couple weeks (yaaaay!), so we're going to have the family over tonight for a campfire, hot dog roast, and s'mores! My parents use to take us camping a lot when we were kids, and we always enjoyed those family times sitting around the campfire talking, laughing, playing, and eating!
I hope you're having a happy Saturday, too!
