Sketch 76

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to the Labor Day weekend. I know I am. I plan on crafting most of the weekend. There's the Virtual Card Making party for Operation Write Home and lots of kits to make for an Operation Write Home Birthday Bash. It should be a great weekend here and the sun will be shining!

Here's my first card of the weekend. It's based on sketch 76. To make the circles, I traced the inside and outside of a Nestie and cut them by hand. Then I hunted through my stamps to find one that would fit nicely on the square. This one is from Word Play by Stampin' Up! The DP is K & Company with some black to help everything pop. Speaking of popping, I popped the square with some dimensional adhesive.

Enjoy the long weekend!

Sketch 75

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today I have another sketch for you. But most of my posts are sketches these days as I work my way through the OWH ones.

This is sketch 75. I used some pretty new K&Company papers and ended up making four of this card. The papers are all double-sided which is even better! It was fun to use some ribbon again, too. My ribbon box is now a little emptier since I finished off the sheer black ribbon with these cards.

I hope you're excited for the VCMP starting on Saturday. I know I am! Enjoy the day.

Sketch 72

Hello! I hope you're doing well after a great weekend. Mine was way busier than I intended, but I enjoyed myself and that's all that matters, don't you think? As you can see, I even managed to get a card made.

This is sketch 72 over on the Stars & Stripes blog. It stumped me a little while I tried to find a little sentiment that would fit. But I managed! The DP are Basic Grey and the sentiment is Stampendous. The base paper has a sheen to it and gives it a bit of pizzazz. I like it so much I even make a kit of 6 for an OWH Birthday Bash card making party in a few weeks.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the last week of August!

So sweet

Here's a cute little DeNami chickie for you today. I colored it with Copics and edged it with some yellow ink. The DP are Memory Box and the sentiment is Fiskars. The sentiment is part of a cupcake stamp set, but I thought it went perfectly with the image.

Take time today to smell the flowers.
