An award, mark your calendars, challenge/sketch card

Hi again! Lots of stuff today :) First, I want to say thanks to Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts for sending this award my way. I haven't seen this one before and its cute. Go check out her goodies at her store, especially those Kaisercraft self-adhesive pearls and rhinestones (sorry can't help myself, I just love those).

And since I've got Limelight on the mind, make sure you tune in tomorrow for another great sketch and product challenge. All the details will be right here first thing in the AM.

So back to the award. Here are the rules:

1. The winner can put the logo on their blog
2. Link the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls or boys you’ve nominated.

It is now my turn to pass this cute little award on. Of course, I love everybody's blog that is on the side bar and I also have quite a few blogs in my bookmarks that I just haven't linked yet, but still visit, but I will "feature" some for now.


Now here is my challenge and sketch card. I've been trying to combine things as much as possible when and if I remember. The challenge can be found at Stamp Something (summertime) and the sketch is from CPS and its #78.

I used FREE stamps - how cool is that? Well ok, they weren't totally free, but they were free with a $50 purchase over at Clear Dollar Stamps. That is about as free as you can get - right? Anyway, I thought this set would be perfect because of the summer theme. I used Close to my Heart Cardstock, patterned paper and embellies for it. I also used Prisma Watercolor pencils to give my images some color.

Thanks again for visiting!

Cardstock: Desert Sand, Crystal Blue, Outdoor Denim, White Daisy
Designer Paper: Majestic Blue level 2
Stamps: August Stamp Special (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Other: RicRac, Circle and Scallop Punch, Prisma Watercolor Pencils, Nestabilities

Thanks Katie! I am a little embarrassed, but I just do not know how to "grab" this award. I also do not know how to put links into thumbnails for my sidebars... as you can probably tell from my blog! I'll see if I can figure it out... thanks for the nomination!
