Welcome to Paper Inkspirations!

Hi! My name is Krissy, welcome to my blog. I have been an avid paper-crafter for many years, my addiction started with scrapbooking and has evolved to card-making. It all started when I realized that I had forgotten to buy a card for my nephew's birthday. Looking at my ever-expanding collection of scrapbook supplies, I thought I'd made a card for him. Since then, I've been hooked on card-making and my scrapbooks have been collecting dust. Someday I'll get back to them... I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful & supportive husband and I work at the Preschool at our church. When I'm not spending time with my family or making cards, I enjoy being active in our church. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.

Take time to get inky today....

Sketch Challenge

Welcome to my very first Sketch Challenge!  I hope you'll want to play along!  Using Stampendous stamps, create a card based on my sketch, and post it on your blog.  Then add a link to your blog in the comments section of this post by Tuesday, June 14th.  I will chose a winner on Monday, June 18th.  Unfortunately, I can only send prizes within the US, but I hope others will play along.  Here's my sketch:

The card I created based on this sketch is the wedding card I made for our church's lay minister, Joe and his bride, Sarah.  This was the first time I got this Happy Couple inky. It was also the first time I added stick pins to a card - I'll be doing that again soon.  I love the extra bling!

Sorry this isn't the best picture.  We've had rain for days in our area.  I'm about ready to start builing an ark!  As bad as our weather is, though, it's no where near as bad as the areas that have experienced tornadoes recently.  My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have suffered any loss.

I hope you'll want to join in my sketch challenge, can't wait to see what you create!  Take time to get inky today!
