World Card Making Day-and my new Celebrity Crush

Howdy there!

This weekend has been lovely for many reasons-beautiful weather, a stack of DVD's, and a list of projects to get my hands on. Today also happens to be World Card Making Day-one day that many many crafty blogs are buzzing with creative ideas. My non-scrappy friends might be laughing, just a little bit, but you won't be laughing when you get some of this happy mail in your mail box! ha!

The Studio Calico blog had a few challenges that really started the ideas flowing. I made three cards using their prompts in addition to two of my favorite challenge sites. Have a looksey:

{#1: Create a card using the following sketch}


and here's my card. I made it for my cousin who is getting married in two weeks!



supplies: patterned paper: Bo Bunny and OA, brads, stamp: K&Co.

{#2: Create a card using leftover scraps from a SC kit+CPS Challenge 186}

The sketch:



And here's a lovely little baby card for another cousin who is due any minute. We don't know if it is a boy or girl, so I tried to keep the colors balanced. I used lots of lovely leftovers from last month's Back 40 add on kit.




{#3: Create a card using one or more of SC stamps}


I love this telephone stamp. I have used it so many times, and I think it goes perfectly with the good news sentiment (that is super old, I have no idea who makes it). I also used Versamark and the ledger dot stamp to create the background, but you cannot see that in this crummy picture. Sorry! But, I didn't finish these until late, so no natural light! The paper tape is Pink Paislee.

The last little project is still in progress.....but it involves this little number I bought at Jessicasprague.com and some Martha Stewart glow-in-the-dark glitter:

And, who is getting my thru this long day of crafting...my new celebrity crush


I am smack in the middle of Season 2 of Fringe. It's offical, I love him. And his show. And Dr. Walter Bishop. = )


Later,

M.
