Big Brother is on tonight, but there are also some scrappy things I want to work on tonight, so I may multi-task once the kidlets are in bed. Right now they are involved in a Pokemon battle with Daddy on the Nintendo 64. Parker always kicks your butt! Heck, Emma even can too. At their age I only had crayons!

Here is another fun sketch site. I decided to tackle her latest sketch. I went with a circle on the card, but didn't do as a circle card mainly because I couldn't find my circle cutter! I also turned the sketch sideways. I got to use my Martha Stewart butterfly punch again (I love that thing, need to go and get the classic butterfly shape too), also used Making Memories Noteworthy paper, Paper Studio bling and Doodlebug rubons. Size is 4x8.

I used a white card base and then added SEI Chocolat paper, pink border sticker and cut out a couple butterflies. I added some Paper Studio bling, Making Memories sentiment and my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the bottom. This was the first time I had used the punch and I messed up but ended up liking the result - happy accident! You can find the sketch here. Size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Emma's Paperie was also nice enough to send me a gift card for my birthday and once I get some publishing money, I'm going shopping!

I made this yesterday at the crop and this was probably my favorite of the day. I used kraft cardstock, a piece of KI Memories Lace Cardstock (love that stuff!), used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch (this fell in my cart at Michael's yesterday) on some Doodlebug glitter cardstock and added some Darice gems and Doodlebug ABC rubons. Size is 4x8.
I made these for a challenge over at their blog. I was bummed though because their other challenge (to use two different lines) I wasn't able to do. I hunted all over town for some at the different stores, but was unsuccessful in finding a 2nd line to use. There are a lot of cool different manufacturers out there that I can't find locally and I'm going to have to break down and start ordering more online soon! There is just something I like about an actual store, where you can touch stuff.
These cards were created with their Cafe Chic line. I really like the colors in these papers and had some left from an online kit. I have a bit of a hoarding problem... Other extras I used include Darice and Paper Studio gems, Imaginesce brad, American Crafts ABC's, Bazzill Bling, Making Memories ABC's, Heidi Swapp journaling circle and stamp, Doodlebug ABC rubons and some Clearsnap Chestnut Roan ink. The cards are in a variety of sizes.

I stamped Hot Off the Press Flight of Fancy butterfly stamps onto embossed swirl Doodlebug paper to add some texture. I then bent the wings slightly and added pop dots for more dimension. The other stamp I used was the sentiment and that is from the Kim Hughes Collection of Cornish Heritage Farms. Paper is Rusty Pickle Pop Star and bling is from The Paper Studio. Size is 5x7
I made these for the July Challenge over at Use Your Stash. The turtle and the sentiment stamp I got in a RAK (along with some other cool goodies) from Kim Hughes. Be sure to check out her blog. Her stamps are so adorable and I see that she is coming out with a cool paper line as well. I wish I had one teaspoon of her talent!
I've already got some other ideas for that turtle floating around in my head including a card that says - You're a Hero in a Half Shell!

I'm home with the kids today and they are in a heated game of Hungry Hippos so I was able to get this card made. I used this week's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. After I got it done, I realized I deviated quite a bit, but am very happy with the way the card turned out. Embossed white paper is Doodlebug, transparency and quote paper are Fancy Pants, jewels are Paper Studio, Doodlebug and Darice. Size is 5x7.

My news is that I have been asked to join the Eye-Lets Etc Team. I should have a kit on my doorstep when I get home so I can't wait to get started. It should be a lot of fun :-)
Happy 4th everyone!
