Sketch Addiction

This weekend I was on the search for some sketches to use so I could use some of the neat supplies that were sitting on my scrapping table and here are a couple that I found. First, I turned to Card Patterns and used their sketch #27 to go along with these adorable new October Afternoon papers. I think the first thought for these papers would be a project that is "baby" related but when I went on a search for what October Afternoon stamps I had that would work, I came up with this cute label and the word "together". That just seems to go with that cute little row of ducks.
Want a close-up look at the punches I used? I had some extra Michael's coupons this week, so I am now the proud owner of some new border punches!!! Here I used two border punches. That large scallop one embosses and punches.
For the above card, I round a brand-new-to-me sketch and it was just right for these Daisy Bucket Designs papers and my brand new loopy border punch. I was blog hopping and came across the i heart 2 stamp blog and thought this sketch would be fun to use.
Is this punch just plain YUM! It also has a matching corner punch that I am sure I am going to go get.
And the below photo just shows that it pays to be the "little" guy in the crowd. Our two older grandsons were over over the weekend and this is one of the games that got invented. Let me tell you that the smallest guy was pretty happy for the ride. He would willingly lay down on the large frizby for free rides.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
