Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek: Pedal Pusher Flower Basket

I pre-order the new Sale-a-bration gifts (just one of the perks I love about being a demonstrator!) and was working on swap cards for our team meeting last night. I wanted to try out the new Global Design Project challenge. It's a sketch challenge this week. Here's what I came up with.

 I was using the Pedal Pusher stamp set -- it's an adorable stamp set with a bicycle built for two, a basket, and little stamps to go in the basket. The bike was too big to go in the circle for this layout, so I decided to use the basket and flowers on it's own. And then I literally cut the "here for you..." greeting in half so I could use the "for you" by itself. It will be easy to piece the stamps together on the clear block when I want to use them together.

After I colored the flowers, I realized that it went perfectly with the Wildflower Fields Designer Paper -- another gift option when you spend $50 or more during Sale-a-bration.

You can start choosing the new gift options beginning Tuesday, February 16th. I have more samples to share, so be sure to come back and check them out!

Pocket Sketch Challenge #8: Sprinkles of Life Card

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the last Pocket Sketch Challenge! It was so hard to pick a favorite because I loved them all for different reasons! Congratulations to Pocket Sketch Challenge #7 Winner Jodi Anderson! I love how Jodi thought outside of circles and used hearts across her Valentine card. Jodi will receive the Pocket Full of Sketches #2 book for free!

It's time for another chance to win! I have a new sketch and a new challenge for you this week. This layout was inspired by a card my friend Barb Mullikin created last spring. I love the simple layout. Plug in a greeting, a piece of designer paper, and a stamped image and the result is a cute card like this one.
