SFF 093011

The last day of September, wow! It's Friday also, so that means it's a Sketch Frenzy Friday.  First, here is the sketch.

I have to admit I had a hard time with this sketch for several different reasons. First, I don't do very many horizontal cards, second I don't use tags on my cards. Once I got over the fact that I didn't have to do either, nothing still wasn't coming to me.  While sitting at my craft table (aka dinning room table), I spotted a swap I received from Sandi MacIver and noticed that I could make it work. So I came up with the feeble attempt of CASEing Sandi. I almost didn't post it because I'm still not really liking it. The stamp sets used are Fabulous Florets, Wonderfully Worn, and Friendly Phrases. The colors are Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.

Thanks for stopping by and continue on this mini blog tour to the homepage. Be sure to add your own creation there.

Fall Swap Share

Good morning everyone. Today's share is a swap share, but not a convention swap. Over at LNS, this week's challenge is fall cards, so I thought I'd jump on the band wagon. This card is a CASE of a CASE. The stamp set is Always Thankful and the colors are More Mustard, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget tomorrow is Sketch Friday Frenzy.

Swap Shares are Beginning

Okay, now that I'm back to blogging I will begin to share all the swaps that I made for Convention way back in July. This one I made for a "In With the New" swap, so the stamp set had to be a new stamp set from the IBC that was introduced on July 1st. I participated in two groups and this is the one of the cards that I swapped.  The stamp set is Creative Elements and the colors are Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, and Whisper White.

I have another card to share with you today. It's the reject to the above card. I was looking at it and I think I like it more than the one I swapped with, oh well. Same stamp set and colors. I think I'm going to have to make more of these to sell at the local boutique that sells my cards.

That's it for the weekend. Have a great one and thanks for stopping by!

SFF 092211

Hey, I'm alive and well! Okay, I know I was MIA for a long time, but I'm not even going to go there. I decided I'm going to pretend like I just posted yesterday and move on, this is the only way I could get myself to pick up my blog again.

So it's Friday again and that means we have another mini blog tour for you and a new sketch. First, here is the sketch:

Sorry that is really small, but if I try to make it bigger, it's blurry and hurts my eyes. Anyways, here is what I did with it. First, I made it a vertical design and used The Sounding Joy, from the new Holiday mini. The colors are Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Expresso. I also used the new silver glimmer paper and  pewter embossing powder. So here is my creation.

Now your off to your next stop, our homepage. Thanks for stopping by!
