and I plan on spending it my scrap room catching up on
some challenges.
Julee is rocking these sketches.Wait till you see
the sketches she has in store for March.I can't wait to try them .

I love this sketch and had so much fun with it.I thought
I would get a head start and make some Easter cards.
I still had some scraps of this paper from DaisyBucketDesigns
left on my desk and decided it would make a nice
Easter card..........isn't the paper just yummy??I cut some of
the flowers and pop dotted them.I also painted the dew drops
with copics to match.
I always use ribbon on my cards and wanted to so bad with
this one but had to force myself not to,lol.Its always seem my
cards are naked with out it but this card had so much going on,
I think it would have been overkill,lol. What do you think?
I love to hear from you!

Happy Birthday with SCS sketch 216 !

Hello everyone, Its my step granddaughters 5th birthday
today and this is the card I made for her.I wanted to
keep it girlie so went with this yummy paper from BG and
a Paper Pretties stamp.I also used todays sketch SC216 from SCS.
I thought this stamp was so cute to use for a 5 yr old girl.
I also bought her some pollypockets for her birthday, since she loves them.

When I saw this sketch on SCS today ,I thought it was so cute and
since I needed a birthday card for Lauren, I knew what I was
gonna make.I usually take forever to decide what paper and stamps
I want to use, but this card went together pretty fast.I am quite
pleased with how it turned out.
Did you see my watermark?I made several water marks for myself.
I've been playing around with my psp again, its been so long since
I've used it. I took online classes several yrs ago on psp and and
then when I discovered Cardmaking, I sorta stop creating with it.
I may take it back up and try doing some digital work.

Stamps; Pretty Pretties, Verve Happy Birthday
Paper; Basic Grey
Accessories; Little shoe Box ribbon, MM button brads, Heidiswapp #5,circle nesties,
glitter pen,Tombow markers.

surprises me with the verse. He does such an excellent job picking out
a card.He also gave me chocolates,a little stuff kitty,and another little minature clock with Swaroski crystals to add to my collection.
I was doing some sewing alterations on Friday night and my sewing machine started smoking, I've had it for many years and don't know if its worth the next day he went out and bought me a new sewing machine.Its is awesome, it has many , many neat stitches on it.
I don't sew much on cards but I can see that changing now,lol.

VLVFeb01 &CPS !

Hello Everyone, I had the day off from work and tidied
up my room somewhat.I couldn't see my desk or floor,lol.
What a mess I had.I still had this paper on my desk from
the last cards I made and decided to use the scrap pieces.
I only bought a couple sheets of it. I wished I had gotten more.

This card was done using the VLVFeb01 sketch.
The twist for this week was to emboss.
I stamped the flowers and embossed with black EBP,
CB embossed the top of the card and embossed the oval with my nesties.
I made a few changes, its a square and I flip the oval
to have room for my sentiment.I had done the flowers for
another card and didn't use them but thought they
looked nice for this one.I punched some branches using the MS punch.

Stamps; Verve
INk; Memento
Accessories; MS branch punch, Oval Nesties,$store rhinestones;Offray ribbon;
