Get Sketchy and Pink Persimmon

Seasons Greetings House GetSketchy

Today Pink Persimmon and Get Sketchy are joining forces! Check out the great sketch over at Get Sketchy and have fun playing along!

When I saw the “hill” looking part to the sketch, I knew I had to run with the idea. I flipped through my Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly pad and found the two papers you see. I tore the snowflake paper and then glittered the top before adhering to the 5x5 card base. I also added some ink distressing to the edges. I stamped the adorable house, from Little Christmas Cottage, in an unusual color. No, its not a weird color, but its weird for me. I am pretty see it as it is. You know, the house should be brown and trees should be pine green, that whole thing. In a silly way, I am proud of myself for embracing the colors of the papers and being ok with an aqua house. LOL! :) The trees got glitter along with the entire roof of the house. And because I had already made a huge mess, I continued by glittering the snowflakes. Isn’t it great when you have fun making something? :)

Supplies: Stamps (Pink Persimmon-Little Christmas Cottage, Holly Wreath), Patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream), Ink (Colorbox Chalk-Sour Apple, Memento Tuxedo Black) Glitter (Sparkle and Sprinkle), Gems (Hero Arts), Spellbinders die templates (Create a Flake 1 and 2)

Before I announce the winner, just let me say how much fun it was for me to read all about your first purchases!! I laughed at all the “goofy” buys and embarrassing projects that resulted, only because I could relate! Thank you for sharing a bit about yourselves with me!!

And now to announce the winner of my 300,000 hits blog candy…drum roll….its Lisa808!!

Congrats on 300K hits! That is so sweet that your MIL bought you the stamp for your wedding invitations.
My first stamping purchase was the SU Frosty set along with Basic Black and Real Red ink pads. A friend of mine was having a SU party and I knew absolutely nothing about stamping at the time. She even mounted the set for me when it came in! I used that purchase to make my very first Christmas cards.

Congrats Lisa!! I will be emailing you shortly!!!
