Creative Sketches go Sew Suite

Ready for a sketch challenge?

How about this one from Creative-Sketches? Our challenge this week is to use this sketch with whatever colors, images, tools and/or supplies you enjoy. But just use the sketch somehow ;)

This week, I thought I'd play with a new stamp set, Sew Suite. This is such a cute set and I just had to use the button card along with my Buttons #5 sizzlit - fun! Also, read below for a helpful tip.
Ok, so maybe babies and buttons shouldn't go together. Unfortunately, that didn't occur to me until after I was already done with the card. Think I'll have to change out the sentiment.... but until then, I have a great tip to share!

A demonstrator at a regional conference recently shared that she uses a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to wipe the tip of her Signo Gel Pen. If you have ever had issues with your gel pen looking dried out or only half-writing, you will be thrilled to know that this helps to make the pen work perfectly! I hadn't used my pens in months because I couldn't get them to work "right" and this was just the trick. (For you spanish speakers - Santo Remedio!) I was able to quickly and easily make the faux stitches on this card. Oh, joy! Time for a *Happy Dance*
