Challenges, Sketches and Blog Candy, oh my!

It's Time-Out Tuesday and I have some inspiration and a challenge to present you.

Although I didn't post a sketch of my own this week, I did play along with a sketch from Kristen Swain who is offering up a great blog candy package to celebrate her blogaversary. Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

There's still plenty of time to play along if you want to give it a try! You can find all of the details here: http://scrapinkris.blogspot.com/2009/07/one-year-ago-today.html

This card was also inspired by the following picture:

This was posted at the Unity Friends board at SCS it's the first Unity challenge I have participated in. I just love Unity stamps! Yes, it's a new addiction. I lalso ove being inspired by objects that feature beautiful colors and geometric details, like this comforter - so pretty! Really helps get the mojo going!

Try your hand at a challenge today and have a creative one!
