Using a Sketch

If you are looking for Thursday's Guest Crafter, please click here.

Hello Crafty Friends. Today I created two cards using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I sure do like to enter challenges! Whether it is a theme, a recipe, or a sketch I want to give it a try.  These challenges allow you to be creative and share with others. Oh yeah, go to Die Cuttin' Divas for another sketch. You have until Monday night to submit a card. The winner will receive some DCD embellishments.

I was asked to make 20 thank you cards and birthday cards for someone. I just started tonight and plan on working a little bit everyday to get them completed for next Thursday. Therefore, you may see quite a few Happy Birthday and Thank You cards.


Materials used for both cards:
K&Company paper ~ PoppySeed stack (love these colors!)
Birthday Bash cartridge ~ scallop (p.43) cut at 4", circle (p.38) cut at 3", balloons ( p. 54) cut at 2 3/4"
pearls ~ green and blue
buttons ~ green and blue 
florals and purple brad
foam squares

This weekend is the Scraps Blog Hop and I will be one of the crafters. I have a neat project to share with you on Saturday and another one on Sunday. I hope you will come back to visit and there will be blog candy too. There is a grand prize for visiting all the crafters and I will have a treat here for a lucky person. 
 One last tip... if you have a Joanns or Michaels, you may want to visit them. I was able to pick up some brads and embellishments at Joanns for 50 cents each and Michaels had some of their dollar goodies for 30 cents each (and you can use your 20% off coupon since they are ringing up as sale items rather than clearance.
Until next time,
