Making it a Sketch Sunday

Today is almost over, but I am feeling quite accomplished. I had a few sketches that I wanted to work on today and I did. I also planned a few Valentine projects that I will be making over the next couple of days. What a productive day! I need a few more!

For the first card I used Recollections Craft It Vintage Glam paper, which was all about the sparkle.  A gold bow (yes, that is gold although it looks more copper in this lighting) was created with my bow maker and then the My Craft Spot mini tag was heat embossed with gold glitter powder.  

I used the following sketch from Your Next Stamp.

The birthday sentiment  and stitched circle are MFT dies. I used my Cuttlebug to cut them out. A few Teresa Collins gold enamel dots were scattered around the top portion.

My second card is a thank you card since I never seem to have any in my stash. One of my students brought me a can of Pringles the other day just because we were talking about our favorite chips. She was so sweet! I didn't have a card for her, so I made one. I used Lawn Fawn plaid paper, the flower is a MFT die, and thanks is a Sizzix die.

I used the following sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

The last card I am sharing is in honor of the upcoming inauguration. No matter your political party or who you voted for, you should still support your country. 

I used the following sketch from My Favorite Things
 The I heart USA is by Miss Kate Cuttables. The pattern papers are by The Stamps of Life.

I need to take a brief break from crafting, so I can grade a few papers. Then I will be back to visit blogs and leave comments. If you like what you see, please become a follower. Don't forget to leave me your blog name, so I can stop by to see what you have been creating!

Just you have Monday off for Martin Luther King Jr's birthday? We do!
Stay Creative,
