Snippets of creative fun:)

With a sympathy card needed this week I went over to Sweet Sketch Sunday (#136) to check out the latest for inspiration:) Using this weeks sketch, Cuttlebug embossing, Stampin' Up! papers, stamps, inks, punches & ribbon I set out to create this simple yet effective 'Thinking of You' card.

I've had my cute Kraftin' Kimmie sketch (#97)ready and waiting all week and finally had a chance to play this morning! Copics colouring, Cuttlebug embossing, Stampin' Up! papers, ribbon, punches and a cup of coffee:) Fun! Fun! Fun! Stay tuned for some other cards in the pipeline:)
