Well, I have been a busy little cardmaking bee lately, so I have a lot to share with you today!! First up, is my card for this week's sketch at the CPS Blog. We were sponsored by DRS Designs stamps this week, and I just LOVE these cute little strawberry stamps that I picked out. They were so fun to work with, and I really love how the card turned out. DRS Designs is offering up a prize for one lucky participant, so please come on over and play at CPS this week! The sketch is fabulous, and you could win some DRS Designs goodies!Up next is the card I got done for Laura's sketch this week at the 2 Sketches 4 U blog! It is a fun little sketch this week, and I decided to bust out this cheerful Sassafras paper collection called "Happy Place" for it. I don't know if you can tell in the photo or not, but the front flap is shorter than the back one, and that circle accent overlaps it all. The sketch has a peice coming off the side of the card, so I put my own little spin on it!
And now, back to valentine's mode. These next two cards use the "Romance" line by American Crafts (LOVE this paper line), and I decided to keep them clean and simple. You know- a card that can actually fit into a regular envelope?! That doesn't happen often when I make cards. :)
And then we go back to a card that needs a padded envelope to be sent out, but don't you just love the ribbon? It is some vintage ribbon that I got in a kit awhile back, and I love it. So easy to tie into a bow. I also used some of the Valentine's collection of Daisy D's paper from last year, and my heart border punch by Martha Stewart Crafts (another item I purchased with that M's store credit...one of my best purchases lately. I have used it a TON!)
That is everything I have to share for today! In other things, Josh and I watched a really great movie last night. We have a subscription to Netflix, and we have an XBOX 360...which means that all the movies/shows that Netflix has available for instant watch can be watched on our big TV via the XBOX. The movie "Vantage Point" happened to be available on the instant list, so we added it to our queue and played it. It was awesome. Very intense, very interesting, and a good ending. Definitely a movie worth seeing if you haven't...I recommend it!
Well, I had better get going for now. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful start to your week!
