crafty me!

My little bugaboo asked to take a nap today - YAY ME! That meant a bit of crafty time for me.

I made cards today. I often frequent a blog called Sketch Me If You Can

Some of the sketches are for cards, others for scrapbook layouts - the card sketches could easily be adapted to a layout if you wanted.

There were two cards that kept catching my eye, so I decided to try them. I made two of each of the sketches. Here are my cards:



Cardstock: Bazzill (Thanks Sue!), patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (Everyday Tango paper pack), flowers, Prima collections, words and coffee cup - Cricut (Beyond Birthdays)



Cardstock: Bazzill, patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (Everyday Tango paper pack), staples: Walmart, misc. ribbon, and words: Cricut (Beyond Birthdays)

They are fairly plain...I probably should have done some edge distressing on the patterned paper, something to perk it up a bit...

But hey - I got to play today!!!!

Your creativity amazes me. I've barely mastered the stick figure, so I tend to gasp with happiness when I see results like this.

Do you take orders?

I love scrapbooking, stamping and card making, but I am just not that talented. Terrific job!
