Here are two more cards I made recently. The first follows sketch FMS73, the second was made using the supplies left over. The first card uses washi tape - the first time I've ever used it. So easy & fun! I 'designed' a few different versions...wonder if they will ever get made?! Saving the design photos, just in case... TFL!

Supplies: Spellbinders Nestibilities, The Paper Studio embossing folder, Sizzix Sizzlits, Fiskars border punch, 3bugsinarug and SEI dp, washi tape, SEI die cut, button, gems, ribbon from my stash


I knew once I started a blog I would find it difficult to post weekly, but I didn't think it would be so difficult to get in at least one a month! Crazy how fast time flies!! I had to make a birthday card for a friend and I wanted to follow one of the challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It's a bit tricky not doing something Christmas-themed, but I found that this sketch worked well (SC466). I made two cards, thinking it would take no time at all to duplicate a card....well, it is impossible for me to exactly duplicate anything, and for whatever reason, it still took me 45 minutes to make the 2nd card, even though all the supplies were out! Ah, but it was an enjoyable 45 minutes...I love my creative time!! TFL!

Supplies Used:
INK:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Barn Door for 1st Card, Peeled Paint for 2nd Card), Versafine Onyx Black for 2nd Card
STAMPS:  Hampton Art (Happy Birthday) and The Stamps Of Life (December's Club Members' Freebie)
OTHER: Copics, Bow Easy, Creative Memories Oval Templates, gems & ribbon from my stash
