The Inka Fairy came! AND some sketch cards

Hi everyone! Awhile ago, I entered a contest over at the Spotted Canary site and WON!! I'm even mentioned on the Home page as one of the 5 winners!! The Spotted Canary site is a forum/gallery/community sponsored by EK Success, Inkadinkado and K & Company. Well, last week my prize goodies arrived and check out these!! The paper pack is K & Co Que, Sera Sera, the clear stamp sets are Inka Heartful of Love, All Hallow's Eve, Gem Stone Birds and the wooden stamps are super cute shilouettes! Oh thank you Spotted Canary! AND, they have another contest going on right now -so you can check it out if you want. It's called Back to School Kids Crafts.

This first card uses some of the new Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Chipboard shapes and paper from the Jolly by Golly mini-deck (Rachel is sold out of the paper, but it was shipped today, so check back to the store soon)! LOVE this paper and LOVE this chipboard!!

I have to say this chipboard has really good adhesive and comes apart really clean compared to Basic Grey chipboard. Don't get me wrong, I love my Basic Grey chipboard stickers, but the paper backing tears a bit and you need additional glue to make it stick. NOT the case with Cosmo! Oh be still my little heart!!

The layout is from this weeks CPS129 sketch. I LOVED the 3 little panels on top of the horizonal piece (which I used as ribbon). The sentiment is one of many cute ones from Verve's Ornamental Christmas set.

My next card started out as the Mojo100 sketch. Can you believe Julee has done 100 Mojo Skeches?!? I can't even design ONE!! LOL! You can check them all out at the MojoMonday Blog.

I just found some Amercian Crafts Thickers at Big Lots (for $2 each!) and really wanted to use a frame piece for the sketch. The pack is from the Wine color collection and was a PERFECT match to my Que, Sera Sera! Woot! BUT, the frame was a touch too big for the circle behind it, so I left it off. So, techincally this doesn't qualify for Julee's sketch!

I stamped the adorable shoe from Express Yourself and embossed it in black. Then I stamped one of the corner flourishes and then place the frame carefully to show just a bit. I decorated the frame a bit with some silver cord, Zva Felt flowers, and silver pearls from Michael's.

Thanks for stopping by! I am just crazy about today's SCS sketch and the week's Mojo sketches, so look for some more sketch cards from me! Have a great Wednesday.
