Sorry If I'm Being A Bit Sketchy...

I was home with a sick Parker yesterday and so while he was resting, I played. Plus carpet repair dudes were here (for the last time, thank goodness!) and so I hid out so I wouldn't get in their way. I made this card with Kazan's Sketch #19 at 2 Sketches 4 You. I used some scalloped Bazzill paper, SEI paper, KI Memories chipboard and Around The Block tape. (I'm beginning to think I have a serious addiction to label tape...but it's just so easy and quick to use!)

This card I made for a sketch challenge over at the Bo Bunny Blog. I was so excited that one of my favorite LSS's Maple Street Memories (ok it's not so local, but they do set up shop sometimes at crops I go to), had a bunch of Bo Bunny paper so I just had to have them. I was down to a couple scraps and that wasn't going to get me far. In addition to the Bo Bunny paper and brads, I also used Daisy D's flowers rubons and American Craft sentiment rubons. I believe the flowers are Bazzill.

****REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION IN PAPER CRAFTS SEPT/OCT 2009 ISSUE.
This card was made with Sketch #155 from Card Sketch A Day. I did end up veering off the sketch a bit..oops! Their site as their name states...has a card sketch every day...that's a lot of sketches...cool! I used some Making Memories Passport papers and ABC stickers (I was so excited I found my stash of these tiny alphas...I also seem to have an addiction to them too) , KI Memories chipboard and some Martha Stewart pearls that accidentally fell in my cart this weekend.


Here is a card I made with Sketch #101 at CPS. I have to admit I was a little worried about using the criss cross on the sketch. This card actually came together very quickly once I grabbed the Surprise line from Scenic Route. It's kind of a simple card, but with such busy papers, I saw simple is better :-) I also saw today that my Scenic Route Suprise items I had made on an earlier post were selected as one of the winners on the Scenic Route website for January's Product Challenge...cool beans!
I even made two more cards yesterday, but I'm going to hold off posting as I made for a sketch pub call. If they don't get the love I will share next week. It's sad that I can get more made in a hour or two at home, then 8-9 hours at a crop!
