SNS MONDAY DT CHALLENGE & A NEW MONDAY MAIL CALL CHALLENGE!

HAPPY MONDAY! This week's Design Team Challenge for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is a SKETCH! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, is the sponsor of Card Positioning Systems Challenges.

I had this Basic Grey Urban Prairie Designer Paper hiding under my desk the past 2 months. Hmmm...I think I have a gold mine under my desk! Shhh don't tell my sweetie! LOL As I was looking at the challenge, I saw DANITA's card that inspired me to use Penguin Hugs stamp set available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I flipped the sketch - I really like this sketch and may have to use it some more this week!
Here are the details of the card:
Stamp Set: Penguin Hugs available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black and Basic Grey Urban Prairie DP
Accessories: Paper Snips, Dew Drops, Copics, Mini Glue Dots, paper Piercing, Mat pack, Nestibilities
I am looking forward to this week and I hope you are too! After our holidays, I am ready for a normal routine! Be sure to check out the SWEET 'n SASSY MONDAY DT CHALLENGES on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog!
NEW CHALLENGE!!! MONDAY MAIL CALL!!!
I came up with this challenge for ME. LOL Honestly, I have to say I am GUILTY of making ALL of these cards, and RARELY mailing them out! How horrible is that! There is this GAPING BLACK HOLE between my office and the mail box! So my NEW CHALLENGE is going to be to MAIL CARDS!
My goal for today is to mail out 4 cards! I have no birthdays this week, but I do have 2 sympathy cards, a Get Well soon card and a RAK. If I have time, I may even really stretch myself and send out 2 extra RAKS! It really doesn't take long, so why do I have this stumbling block!? LOL
I hope you have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and commenting!
Share with me the links to things you create! I would LOVE to see them!!!

The stumbling block comes from not wanting to let go of all the creations! I know that's my problem but I am getting so much better at it!

This is a great sketch and you created a wonderful card with it! Such pretty colors and darling penguin.

I accept your challenge to mail out cards, but only sent one out today because we were out for several hours running errands. It was a Thank You card, two more Thank You cards will go out tomorrow. So that's mine for this week as far as I know. Thanks for the challenge, hopefully I'll be able to keep it up!

Hugs,
