Pink Persimmon Challenge Cards

I am so in on the Pink Persimmon Blog Hop Sketch Challenge!  It's taken all my efforts not to buy all their stamps while we've been on a spending freeze.  :-(  If I can't shop at least I can try to win some!  Now that's cool!  If you can't tell by now I am so excited to be putting in my entries.  Here we go...

First we hop over to Julie's blog, Julie's Life.  With her stop we were challenged to use the sketch as well as adding buttons and flowers.  Here's my go at the sketch with the add-ons.  Oh what fun!

The second hop was on over to Linda's blog PaperCutting Kind of Day.  Her challenge was to just use the sketch.  AWESOME!  Now the rules allowed for the use of any stamps but for me this was the perfect time to showcase all the Pink Persimmon stamps that I own.  What's really funny is that I was given "Flower Greetings" and I tend to use it all the time.  What a blessing to have it in my stash.  :-)

So there you have it!  Two blog hopping sketch challenge card entries.  I hope you have a chance to play along.  The deadline is February 28th.  You can see all the details on the Pink Persimmon blog.
