A RemARKable Tour and CCMC 106

Hello everyone! I am back with a new post that has two functions! Cool, huh? The RemARKable blog tour starts today (Thursday) and goes through Saturday. And Thursday's are when Connie and Mary post their new challenge. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge. Be sure to visit their blog to see the sketch and to enter your card to be one of their top three picks of the week! I will be looking at the entries as well and posting comments. It's so fun to see what others have created and to explore new blogs. So be sure to enter your card! This is my version of the sketch. And I really liked the way it turned out!

Also, today is the day that the RemARKable blog tour begins. I belong to an awesome family of stampers called the RemARKable stampers. So when you go through the tour, you will see many wonderful blogs of talented ladies and their creations. This blog tour was to show some new products from the new catalog. And while my shipment hasn't actually arrived (should be here today or tomorrow), I do have some of the sneak peek items to show. And this card fits that. The stamp set isn't exactly new but it is new to the main catalog. This was a set that was available in the Occasions mini back in the spring. But take a look at these wonderful new In Colors! I love this color combination and I got it from the new Color Coach. If you didn't like (or even if you did like) the old Color Coach you HAVE to get this one! It is awesome! I also used the new 2 3/8" scallop punch. Love that!! The other new product on this card is the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Love that, too!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a super day! Don't forget to make a card for Create with Connie and Mary. And be sure to click below for the next stop on this fabulous tour!
