Twinkling Tuesday...Want some Candy???

Hello everyone!

I can't believe it's the Tuesday after Christmas already, can you? Time has been FLYING! I am really enjoying having the kids home from school, sleeping in (well, MY version of sleeping in, but still!), and just sort of hangin' out.

Madelynn really has a cute sketch for us this week! Here it is, MTTSC3! I think DD knew that I needed a break after that criss-cross sketch last week LOL! Isn't this a GREAT sketch?!

I chose to use my new "ContenttobeaBella" stamp from Stamping Bella...now being carried at A Walk Down Memory Lane's store! I have to admit, this card is a SNEAK PEEK from the January Card Kit that is coming out in JUST a few days!!! LOOK at these great colors and papers!

Also, I colored in this cutie patootie with the JANUARY COPIC CLUB selections, all matching the January Card Kit which will be sold seperately! How COOL is that??? I am LOVING this sketch, and was especially happy to be able to use these super cute brads from Doodlebug Designs.

You DO NOT want to miss this brand new card kit premiering on the 1st from A Walk Down Memory Lane! Make sure you check out the Design Team blog this Friday for another sneek peek and some more cards designed by me :) I had a BLAST with this kit and the cards just keep on coming!

Now, onto our featured stamper for this week on The Twinkle Team! She is none other than my friend Bonnie, The Lucky Clucker. Bonnie and I met through being on the Little Paper Shop Design Team together and I just love her. She is sweet, funny, and extremely talented!

Would you just LOOK at this BEAUTIFUL card she made and the unique take on this week's sketch? I "THINK" Bonnie knows that I like butterflies! Don't you? This is just gorgeous, girl! I LOVE the Basic Grey Ambrosia line and that beautiful sentiment from The Little Paper Shop.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Twinkle Team's dazzling creations today, too! Links are on my sidebar!

Once you make the rounds, come back here and leave a comment hooking up YOUR take on the sketch, and be entered to WIN....

Felicia said...

Hi there! This is my first time visiting your blog. I actually found it from Jami's blog! I loved her card so much and decided I'd participate in your challenge as well. Thanks for the challenge it was a fun one! I haven't stamped in a very long time. My husband has been in Spain the last month and half for work so I've been busy with the kids. I had to squeeze in a little stamping time especially now that he's coming home tomorrow!

Felicia said...

Sorry I just realized I was so excited I didn't even add the link! ha ha

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

Beautiful card...fab take on the sketch. The textured paper is perfect! Bonnie's card is gorgeous as usual. What is the twinkle team?

Jessie/knightrone said...

This is just too cute!! I love it!!

Heather said...

O.K. I got my Sketch Challenge Done, and Madelynn it was so much fun to do!!!!

Here is the link to my Card.

I did have to add one thing to it a Sentiment. Normally I think it is fine to leave a Sentiment off the front of a card, but this one just seemed to need it when I was making my take on your very super cute Sketch!!!!

I am having so much fun with this Sketch I wish Tuesday was not a week away!!!! LOL


Oh and thanks for the chance at the Twinkies Candy as Jami put it!!!
