Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

Stamp TV CSS Sketch Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Alumni blog hop! If you arrived from the blog of the super talented Karen, then you are on the right hop path. If you didn't hop here from Karen's blog and would like to start the hop from the very beginning, go back to Stamp TV and start from there. That way you won't miss any of the fabulous creations made by the Center Stage Alumni.

Tonight is a sketch challenge hop. Here is the wonderful sketch, created by Melissa Cash, that we used as our inspiration.

This sketch was such fun to play with and here is the card I made using the sketch to inspire me. The card base is Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, layered with Pure Luxury Green Apple. The red layer is Pure Luxury Red Hot with another small strip of Green Apple that was run embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder (called Lattice, I think!). I stamped the images onto Pure Luxury White Layering White paper using Stampin' Up Kiwi Kiss and Poppy Parade Ink. The ribbon is also SU Poppy Parade. The images are all from the Gina K Designs set called Lean on Me. I just love the way the flowers turned out stamping them in red! The Thinking of You sentiment is from the Gina K Designs  set, Buds and Vases.

Now it's time to hop along to Lori's blog to see her beautiful creation, but before you go be sure to leave a comment here (and on each blog you visit) because on Tuesday morning, March 29, one comment from all the blogs will be chosen at random and that lucky person will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95 from Gina K Designs!
