Good Morning Friends! Our power just came back on, so I thought that I'd better post quickly before we end up losing it again. We lost a little bit of food in our refrigerator, but aside from that, we faired Hurricane Irene pretty well. I'm grateful that we only lost power, water, and telephone for 17 hours. Things could have been much worse.

Luckily, I had Jen's August Sketch For You To Try and last Wednesday's sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club printed out. Just click on the colored links to see the sketches and play along. I couldn't do any sewing on my cards, but I was happy that I could still make cards.

First up, Jen's sketch. I used this darling little ant from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. She's colored up with Prisma Color Pencils. I used Papertrey Ink Kraft card stock for the card base. It's embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. The sentiment and gingham paper are from A*Muse. The flowered paper is from October Afternoon and the orange print is from Stampin' Up. I also added a Stampin' Up button and some Divine Twine.

My other card is for the MFT Sketch. I colored up and paper pieced this sweet little Pure Innocence girl from the MFT Make Mine A Double set. This time around, I used my Copic Markers (BG000, BG72, E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, E33, G20, G21, G94, G99, and R11). The white and Kraft card stock is from Papertrey Ink and I used some papers from the Minuet collection from Memory Box. My accents include the MFT Die-namics Textile Rectangle for the sentiment piece, Baker's Twine, a Stampin' Up button, and the MFT Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip.

Thanks so much for visiting with me. Have a beautiful day...Toodles! :D

Glad you are all okay from the storm. We lost cable, but had power the whole time. These cards are sweet. I love how you intertwined the bakers twine on the background mat. Very cute and similar to stitching.
