Masculine cards: 1 sketch = 2 cards

I just love my Stampin' Up "Sentimental Journey" and "Puns from the Past" sets so my problem with this challenge was which stamps to use! I originally thought I'd only use the Sentimental Journey set for scrapbooking since we travel a lot but then I found this wonderful "If only I had wings...." sentiment stamp at the Enchanted Cottage on Wednesday so it's now a card set as well! Just about all of the stamps in "Puns from the Past" will make great guy/gender neutral cards.... I did a close up of the "If only..." card so the sentiment is more legible. Loved this challenge!

Sketch 20 - 3 Versions (and by Monday night!)

I loved this layout and had already practiced on some new 50 cent stamps with my Copics so did two versions of this card, one with the rainbow stamp and a "boy" or "gender neutral" Snoopy and a "girly" Snoopy card that I purposely didn't stamp with a sentiment because, after all, who doesn't like Snoopy on any occasion??? I will be using up some great paper scraps making 6 of each of these cards. I used a Stampin' Up "Sprinkles" stamp to add a little background to the rainbow sketch.

Sketch Challenge 20

Thanks, Cheryl, for a great sketch - so versatile. Already have some images colored with Copics I can use for this one.. I love to color with my Copics but it would have been so much simpler (and cheaper!) to buy a huge coloring book and a box of 64 Crayolas....
