Three in one! has been a hard week but I made it!!  Here are my design team challenges rolled into one!  The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge can be seen by clicking on the Sweet Stop badge to the right!  It was a fun sketch this week......if you give it a try you can upload your creation on the Sweet Stop blog! 

The copic challenge at Artful Sentiments by Kimm are such beautiful fall colors this least the end of fall!  Here they are:

You can upload your creation on Kimm's blog as well for the copic challenge....let's see what you can do with your colors!  Click on the "see Kimm's blog here" link at the top right to upload and see what the other designers submitted.  The inside of this card says "We share in your sorrow."

Then the third part of the 'three in one' is that I needed more Sympathy cards for my upcoming card sale.  This card also incorporated the torn frames and 'out of the box' techniques from the Technique Junkie newsletter.  Whew!  I love how you can do out of the box techniques with the nestibilities.  It is sooo easy.  place your nestie over your image when you will be cutting.  Use a pencil and draw on your image along the inside edge of the die.  Take die away and use scissors to cut away the edge of the paper and around the part of your image that will be hanging 'out of the box'.  Put your die back over the image but slip the cut out part over the top and away from the cutting edge.  So simple!  Hope you enjoy!
