Thankful Thursday InStyle

As promised, I said I would have another surprise for you this week! YAY!!!! It's now surprise time!!!! This week I was chosen to create the Thankful Thursday Sketch Challenge over at InStyle Stamps! I am honored to be in charge this week! And I am very excited to share with you my very first sketch that I created (well maybe it's my second....) feel free to add any fun elements to it!

Here's my sketch:
I am starting to get that hand on my Photoshop Elements 7 a little bit!
And here's my take on the sketch! I used lovely Lilah from InStyle Stamps. I just love how cute she is! Lilah was colored with my Copics. Papers are Bo Bunny and Making Memories. Flowers are from my stash. This card was so fast and easy to make! (Can you believe that's 2 cards in a row now without any ribbon....double eeekkkk!)

A close up of Lilah, don't you love her pink boots?!
The base of this card is 4 x 6, which is a twist from my normal 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card!
To play along head on over to the InStyle Stamps blog by clicking HERE! You can find all of the directions to play along and Virginia is kind enough to offer a great fun prize for the winner! Now you just have to play along! :)

I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone to gave me information on where to find books on Photoshop! I went to Barnes and Noble today and found just what I am looking for! You are all the greatest!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

She's totally SASSY & love the style of card you made!

When I stamp on fabric I use my Memento ink (heat set it real good, cuz it needs to dry in the fibers) and then color w/ copics.
If I'm stamping in colored ink I use PTI's Palette inks--permanent inks. Heat set them w/ your heat gun at the end too! Hope that helps!

Congratulations Kim. The sketch is great but your sample is Fantastic. Are you sure your taking the right coarse in college. Maybe it should be a design coarse instead of acctg, lol
