Psalm 19:14: "Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight Oh, Lord, my strength and my redeemer."
We'd love to have you join our challenge this week. Remember, even though our challenges are inspired by Scripture, you do not have to use Scripture on your cards. If you upload to online galleries, please use SSCC6 this week. =0) Have a wonderful Sunday!!

Good Saturday morning!! I just got this super cute new Tilda with Strawberries stamp (from the Lazy Days of Summer Collection) from KL Stampin' N Scrappin, but to go with my theme I covered up the strawberries with Flower Soft and made this a blossoming card for my 10 yr. old daughter. She's proving to be such a beautiful person on the inside and I just felt like letting her know how proud I am of her.
- Little Yummy for your Tummy collection (Magnolia)
- the NEW Basic Grey paper, (OOOH... super cute Christmas ones with reindeer and ornaments etc.)
- a coupon code to save you $5 on your order
- sales up to 35% OFF of selected Magnolias
All this is listed at the top of the KLSNS BLOG, so if you want some great stuff on sale... or even some FREE Halloween PAPER, go check it out!!

So I inked her up and followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch! I dug out my old SU! color, Marvelous Magenta--LOVE that color, especially paired with black and teal! I also cuttle embossed the magenta with the argile folder. I had to kind of turn my image layer, but you can still see the sketch here. I watercolored Nickie and add lots of stardust glitter gellyroll pens for highlights to her scarf, roses, bows, button on shoe and of course her eyeshadow. It really doesn't look like this IRL. I have a light magenta color down first and then the clear glitter pen over it. Here's a close up, although it's not exactly what it looks like IRL either!! LOL. The light is shining right on the glitter here. It's really much more subtle than this. And if any of you tell me I need some make-up lessons... !!!! LOL - yes, I realize the eyeshadow on her right eye is wonky. OOPS!
Today is Wednesday, and there's a new challenge posted at Inky Impressions Challenges!! (Even though I didn't do that challenge yet!)... but if you have some of these beautiful stamps, please hop on over to the challenge blog and play along this week!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are inspired to "INK SOMETHING!"

Happy Sunday my stamping friends! Every Sunday we at Stampin' Sisters in Christ issue a new challenge and I've gotta say, you girls really LOVED last week's sketch challenge didn't you?! I'm so pleasantly surprised that we had 80 entries!! That's so awesome--thank you for playing along! =0) And again, thanks so much to Gina K Designs for donating 2 wonderful stamp sets last week. The winner of those will be announced this Tuesday!
This week's sponsor is Sweet & Sassy Stamps, and Korin has donated this gorgeous Fall/Autumn stamp set that will go to one random player this week! So come play along!!
Our hostess this week is Kathy Winter (my sister) and her scripture passage is Ecclesiates 3:1, "To Everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." She loves Fall and so her challenge for us is to make a card with the many different colors of Fall/Autumn!
I used the "Pick of the Harvest" digi image from this week's sponsor, Sweet N Sassy Stamps, and right now it's on sale for only $3!! What a great deal!! I'm pretty new to digi images, but ever since I read Sue McMahon's tutorial on watercoloring digi's I was hooked and am loving it! :) Sweet N Sassy also has some new Fall and Winter digis added, and in fact they just got done having an "Autumn Stroll Blog Hop" with their amazing Design Team, so I hope you'll go check that out! Thank you so much for sponsoring our challenge at SSCC this week Korin!!
Come by the challenge blog today and see what my Design Sisters have created!

Our scripture is one of my favorites and Lisa chose it this week. It is "Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
...and the challenge is to use this sketch (ie. plans!) Great sketch and Genius idea Lisa! ;)
I created 2 cards again this week. I love how easy and versatile this sketch is! I also got some cute new stamps and stamped images from KLSNS and Inky Impressions that I wanted to show ;P This first one is Chef Tilda from the Little Yummy for Your Tummy Collection!

And my next card uses Story Time Sophia, my August SOTM club stamp from Paper Pretties! I followed their sketch challenge this week. This winner gets a $15 GC to their store, so my sister and I both participated. It was amazing how much our cards ended up alike! We both used the same stamp, and the same Nesties! Hers is better though and I really hope she wins it this week! (you can see her card on our SSC Challenge Blog). This is perfect for my oldest daughter--she loves to read! This inside sentiment says, "A good book is like a good friend... the best part is on the inside!"
