Happy Sunday and I have another new set for you today! I love sketch challenges but have been so swamped it's been way over a month since I got to do one. So I did double duty today, actually triple duty, I've got a new stamp set plus I did two sketch challenges.

Well I'm a dog person, I love dogs, better than most people! LOL So every stamp set that Stampin' Up comes out with about dogs I MUST own! This one is really cute and I think people are going to like it. It's called D is for Dog, isn't that cute?

The first sketch challenge was Mary Jo Price-Williams over at Technostamper. She has a new sketch each Monday so I'm just squeaking in at the last minute for this one. Here is challenge and it worked quite well for this stamp set. I used the new IC's Melon Mambo and Soft Suede, first time using Melon Mambo, it's a REALLY pretty color. Thanks Mary Jo for a great sketch!

Then the second card is done using the same set and was for the Stamping 411 blog. They offer a sketch challenge each Saturday but this is the first one I've had time to play along with. What a fun sketch (411-SC108)this one was. As they said in their write up about the sketch it will be one you can go back to time and time again for a quick and cute card! Thanks Ladies!

I used the D is for Dog set and paired it with the Soft Suede (this is a real must have color) and the Melon Mambo. Used lots of circle punches to showcase the little paw print and bone and then the Very Vanilla for the background, which really made the Soft Suede and Melon Mambo ink and paper POP. I was super pleased with this card too. I'm thinking that I will make a few of these for my Vet's office to use. It went together so quick! Love that!

Well that's it for this Sunday. Thanks so much for stopping by and just a quick reminder that a week from Monday is when the next Royal Blog Tour gets started, three days of NEW CATALOG projects and lots of blog candy! Please be sure to visit the Royal Blog Tour site to learn all about the tour. Until next time.....SEE YA!

These are excellent and I really love the paw/bone/paw on the second card. I have this set on my next order too.

No one should be surprised that you would pick this set. Just look at the title and your blog. Fun times with challenges. I especially like the second one with the circles.
