CAC sketch card: 8-24-10

The sketch and what I did with it...
I watercolor painted Fluffles and the hot pink frame is cut with my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot program. The brown ribbon with with dots is a sticker and so are the flowers on the frame. The other ribbons are fabric. The sentiment is a phrase I found in my stash. And the peach cardstock was run thru my cuttlebug and inked with brown.

Time for another Create-A-Card sketch. First we have this sketch...
And here's the card I made.
I used my creative memories cutting system to make the circles and the red "stripes" is actually corrugated cardstock (it came in one of those scrap packs that way). The ribbon was a scrap from something that seemed perfect for this card.

Blog Candy Winner

I'm sorry that I didn't get a photo of my candy put on the blog (you'll see that I've had some photo difficulties with my cards). I have some cuttlebug folders, cling stamps, stickers, paper, and I can't remember what else. Thanks to everyone who entered and helped to pass it on.

My blog post ended up with 15 comments and I had my oldest son randomly pick and the winner is "The Cook" who said: Thanks for a chance... I'm follower #59! Can't wait to see exactly what's in the candy! I have linked to your candy in my sidebar (did not find an image for the candy so I put a full text link)... theCook @ blogdecuisine(at)gmail(dot)com

Dad's Birthday Card

CAC sketch card: 8-3-10


OK...I'm just going to give the quick details. I ran a piece of smoke colored velum thru my cuttlebug. I tore the edge to make it look like a decorative edge along the top. I then tried to use some white paint to settle in the swirls on the back but that didnt' work so I used a blue marker to color it instead. Nest I used a cat sticker and my Creative Memories custom cutting system to make all the circles. I used a black pen for the faux stitching. I stamped a Stampin' Up sentiment that I bought at a garage sale with dark brown ink on the smallest circle. Everything was stuck down similar to the sketch, with a few flowers from the cat sticker sheet, and I was done.

Thanks for looking at my card.
