CPS Sketch #77

August 15, 2008

One little lone card to share with you today! This is my card for sketch 77 at CPS, sponsored by Inque Boutique.

Card info: Cardstock (Bazzill), Paper (KI Memories), Stickers (Making Memories), Ribbon (Michael's brand), Rhinestones (Glitz Designs & Westrim Crafts), Stamps (Inque Boutique), Ink (StazOn & Clearsnap), and Border Punch (Fiskars).

So, I had to use a ruler, pencil lines, and scissors to complete this card! I went to start it on Wednesday night...and when I went to use my trimmer....it ripped up the peice of paper I was trying to cut. Looking closer at the trimmer (I have the MM Precision Trimmer), the blade had been pushed out of the correct cutting position, and would not go back. Something must have fallen on it pretty hard during the car ride home this weekend. It was fairly late on Wednesday night, so there was no way to get a trimmer...so I had to go old school. I know you are probably thinking...why the heck did she not use a metal ruler and an exacto knife?! Trust me when I say....I can't cut a straight line to save my life with those two tools. So- time to go get a new trimmer. Hopefully there will be a coupon on Sunday for M's! :)

So, that is all I have done this week...other than putting things away, trying to find room for all the stuff I came home with...etc. I needed a bit of a break this week, so I watched the Olympics instead of scrapping. I love the Olympics...but boy are they exhausting me! Going until midnight or later this week...but I don't want to miss a thing, so I stay up and watch! I have to give a big WHOO HOOO for Nastia and Shawn for USA Women's gymnastics last night for taking Gold and Silver...and for competing HONESTLY. There is no way those girls from China are the age of 16 like they are supposed to be. Did you notice in the team event that quite a few of them are still losing teeth and growing in permanent teeth? Pretty sure I had all my permanent teeth AND braces off by the age of 16. I find that so irritating, and I really hope the IOC looks into it once the games are over and all atheletes are safe at home.

Have a happy weekend!

  8. Looks darned good for a pencil and scissors. LOL. It's such a fun design. Love the hearts.

  9. Awesome card. It is one of my favorites. You know, I feel like I get the best cut with ruler and a knife. I have that clear one for quilting and I love it!
    I have been watching the olympics, too. I just love it. I don't have to go to work in the morning so I don't mind staying up late.
    If those girls are younger than 16 it is really sad that they are faking their paperwork.
    I just watched the uneven bars and Nastia getting second place for getting the same score. I wish they would fix that scoring system.

  10. Hi Lea, You don't know me, but I think your work is amazing and I've tagged you on my blog!
