2 Sketches 4 You for week of November 17 - Laura's Sketch 13 and Kristen Bonus Sketch

This is my 2nd take on Laura's Sketch 13 (for the week of November 17). The other one and a copy of the sketch are below the bonus sketch. I'm new at this blogging thing and can't figure out how to move this!!! The dinosaur is a sizzix die I have for some time and I cut it out of this cool green paper that looks kind of like rough skin! Perfect for a dinosaur! The green leaves are Basic Grey Dinosaur stamps with stickles on top. The words are cut with quickutz eliza mini and sophisticate. The paper was from my stash!

Kristen did the bonus sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I don't know why it got me thinking about the 4th of July but it did. I have lots of paper that coordinated so this was fun. I also found some Me and My Big Ideas stickers that I've had for a long time that had the God Bless America song - made a great border for the card. The fire cracker is sizzix die cut that I've had for a long time too! If feels good to use things in my stash!

























And here is my first attempt at Laura's Sketch. I used a sizzix that I've had for awhile to do the santa head. I used DCWV glitter paper to give him some interest! Santa's eyebrows have stickles on them! I actually got my old chalk with Q-Tips out to give him the rosy cheeks and nose! The other die cuts and the stamp are from the quickutz revolution 2008 holiday gift set. Love it! The paper is from Me and My Big Ideas. And the brad - love that Santa Rocks - is Around the Block. I had a great time doing this one!
