This is as clean and graphic as this lady can get.
I based it on the Get Sketchy #3 challenge. Thanks for dropping by!
Supplies: cardstock: Stampin' Up Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy; pattern paper: MAMBI; stamp: Scenic Route; ink: Stampin' Up Bravo Burgundy; ribbon: Wright's; button: Dress It Up; floss: DMC
The first card uses Card Patterns #30 sketch and is based on the classy and elegant style for Moxie Fab World. I used an embossed pattern paper by ummm...I forget the maker..anyhow I did a little fussy cutting and paper piecing and finally added some embossed swiss dot paper on a stripe pinking shear edge card. The paper lace is K & Co. and I thought it was perfect as a elegant touch since I was looking for something dressy. Of course I had to add a little bit of bling to the poinsettia. ;-)
This next card I did for Friday's stamping challenge at Moxie Fab World. It's been a bit since I pulled out all the my inks so I was happy to try this one. This is a simpler card. I wanted to showcase the stamps and also have something I can mail easily for the holidays. Usually my cards are so bumpy and lumpy I have to send in a padded envelope to ensure it arrives intact.

Anyhow, I was a little lost without my creative outlet so I read 2 of the Sookie Stackhouse books which the series, "True Blood" is based upon. Fun reads for the beach and addictive once you start. I am moving onto #5 in the series.
Enough of my rambling...I have many cards to share this evening. My first is for the Paper Popsicles blog card sketch this week. Melissa generously offered to take over for me this week and made a really great sketch. Here it is:
and here's my card based on her sketch and using Linda's card challenge from The Shaker Box's Sizzlin' Summer crop which is going on right now. There are challenges, games, and Design Team positions being offered so check it out!
Supplies: cardstock: The Paper Co. kraft and Bazzill; pattern paper: Cosmo Cricket; stickers: Scenic Route and American Crafts

Wait! There's more!!
I did a sketch for the Apron Strings blog party and it is featured today!
I had a mini album I picked up years ago at the big W. It came with a few apple die cuts and stickers which I decided to use on the cover. I also used some Cosmo Cricket paper, American Crafts alphabet sticker, Target rhinestones, and an unknown plastic pencil tag.
Okay, that's it for now. "True Blood" starts in ten minutes so I need to go. Have a great evening and thanks for visiting my blog!

And now I sit after laundry, mowing, cleaning, shopping, and packing to share a few cards with you before I leave.

Card Patterns ( Michelle) announced it will be changing a few things around with the design team and welcomed a new artist and sadly said good bye to another. I love seeing the DT's work each week and like the unique styles of every artist. Thanks for the encouragement and inspiration you offer DT! I am look forward to seeing Nina's work but will miss Peter's.
Here's the box I started with:
I cut it in half and then covered with paper. I painted the inside with red paint and around the edges. Next I added the burlap, felt apple, and apple pattern paper. I stamped a tag from craft cardstock and attached 4 eyelets to make the bag's handles. I tied the handles with ric rac and used twine for the tag. Tada...
Here is a better view of it hanging on a door knob.
Supplies: cereal box; cardstock: The Paper Co.; pattern paper: Reminisce; stamp: Stampin' Up; ink: Archival Sepia; ric rac: Wright's green; eyelets, burlap, felt, and twine: craft supply; other: red paint

So today no cards to share. I made this recycled mini album a bit ago and thought it would be a cute album of Ebony and her dog door. She was always sticking her head out and looking around to see what was going on. She came and went as she liked throughout the day. She enjoyed walking around in the yard each day. She followed the length of the fence sniffing and investigating the grounds. I would watch her from the kitchen window wandering around the yard. Sometimes she would look up at me watching her and our eyes met for a few seconds. Just so sad that I won't see her walking around the backyard anymore. Only in my memories.
Below is the mini album I made of her and the dog door. I finally printed the pictures and completed the album recently and as an ode to Ebony, I am sharing it tonight.
Sorry these first few shots are blurry.
Rest in peace Ebony.
My card is CAS which I am happy about because I think I have a tendency to overdo some of my cards. Sometimes it's just nice to stop and say, no more. :-)
Supplies: cardstock: Wausau white; pattern paper: Kaisercraft; vellum: Autumn Leaves: ribbon: unknown; brads: Marcella red; rub-on: Creaitve Imaginations; ink: Stampin Up Creamy Caramel

To inspire me, I made a card for the 2S4Y sketch this week. Nothing super fancy.
Also congratulations to Sakiri on joining the design team at 2S4Y! She makes some amazing cards! She was the winner for the 1st Ultimate Card Showdown which was well deserved! I look forward to seeing more of her creations. :-)
Thanks for visiting! Wishing a wonderful Monday!
Anywho...I referenced this because I bought a K & Co. Cut-n-Paste paper with a vintage movie theme that I thought would be perfect for my daughter. She loves popcorn! She makes popcorn typically every evening. If she makes the popcorn, then she has to have her seasoning for it. When the popcorn is done, it has to be placed in the popcorn bowl. The popcorn bowl is placed on the right side of the coffee table while she sits on the couch. If she sits on the couch, then it means it's a movie or prerecorded DVR program she watches on the television. It's a chain reaction of routines and it's always fun to sit next to her and enjoy a little down time. Which brings me to the card I made last evening for her based on CPS #127.
inside my card reads:
I plan on giving this to her with a coupon to redeem for a movie night.
Supplies: cardstock: Wausau white; pattern paper: K & Co.; glitter: Ranger Stickles; stickers: Making Memories; sentiment created with word processor
