Kazan's Sketch 33 & Guest Designer Search





Kazan used DIY Darling

It is always great to work with a product that does what its name says.  This week the entire Design Team all worked with darling stamps from Clear & Simple.  What we loved about their product is that they are indeed Clear and Simple.  Any stamper, both beginner to advanced, will find pleasure in their wide selection of stamps that appeal to any occasion.  For your viewing pleasure our Design Team has created the following cards with their Clear and Simple Stamps.

I love this sketch! Did my card way earlier in the week and then forgot {gasp} to link it to your blog! So, since I hate to use Mr. Linky after the deadline (although, he looks to still be available...) Here is my card:

Can't let all that work be a total waste! :) Thanks for the great sketch!

Janelle said...

Oops! I accidently linked this weeks card here to last week's sketch (which I already wrote a comment about earlier -- that I had forgotten to link last week). Man, I'm sounding like a real flake here!
