TSSC 184

Good morning everyone! Are you all ready for a super weekend? Got any great weekend plans? Be sure to enjoy the last two days of July! I can't believe it is over! And now things are going to start getting busy for us in the sports world. Nick starts his regular soccer practice next week in the evenings and he wanted to do a goalie camp next week, too and that will be in the mornings so he will be one busy boy!! But it will be good for him! And I know that he and his dad want to get another camping/fishing trip in before school starts.

I finally got around to playing the sketch challenge from Mary Jo! She always has great sketches! Here is this week's (which ends tomorrow):

Clean, Simple and FUN! I love it! Take a look at what I finally came up with:

It's a little different. My son wanted me to get this set, Need for Speed. Imagine that! And since Stampin' Up! retired the Extreme Dirt Bike, I don't use it as much anymore (which was his favorite stamp, by the way). So I needed a current one. It can be hard to find stamps that appeal to a "tween". Anyway, I got the set and I need to find ways to use it. I thought this sketch was perfect! I got the color combination from the Color Coach and I kind of like the way it all turned out! 

Be sure to join in on the blog hop with this sketch challenge! You have until tomorrow! And you can join in right here on my blog! It is always fun to see how others interpret the sketch! Have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Need for Speed, Happiest Birthday Wishes; Paper- Bravo Burgundy, Baja Breeze, River Rock; Ink- Bravo Burgundy, River Rock, Basic Black; Accessories- Tasteful Trim die, extra large oval punch, dimensionals


  1. super card! I can not wait to order this set! Love it. My hubby will love it too. Fabulous job with the sketch, great masculine card. Thanks so much for playing along!

  2. Yes, the "tween" appeal can be difficult to nail--you've done it perfectly. My son would adore this card!
