Happy Sunday everyone! I was a card making fool yesterday, so I have a lot to share with you today! But first, I want to remind everyone to head over to the CPS blog. We are celebrating our 100th sketch this week, and for the next three weeks we have 3 sponsors a week, and LOTS of giveaways. AND, the card that you make for sketch 100 might just get published in the September 09 issue of CardMaker's magazine...check out the CPS blog for all the details! My card will be posted on Thursday, so check back then if you would like to see it!
While doing some blog surfing yesterday, I found a blog called "Sketch Saturday" and this is my card for sketch #35. I think most of the participants are from elsewhere in the world, which is very cool...can't wait to read their blogs. And, they do a lot of stamping. Well, I have never claimed to be the best stamper in the world, but I did do some basic stamping on my card for the sketch. And, I seem to be getting better at stamping as we continue to get more stamping sponsors at CPS...I just have my own way of doing it! This card features a lot of product from the "Chocolat" line by SEI. I love this line...and that background paper is my fave from the collection.
This card uses up the paper scraps from that first card...and I just love the sentiment! Those tiny letter rub-ons are by Creative Imaginations...and I think I have found a new love. I don't see them on their website any longer, so I am very glad I have a couple of them (they are the Swatchbook rub-ons).
I just recently got this entire collection of SEI paper called "Black Orchid" in one of my Cards Magazine goodie boxes, and I came upon it when putting away the "Chocolat" papers. So, I decided it was time to break it out...I am loving the colors of this paper!!
This card uses up all the scraps from the card above. Aren't those felt flowers adorable? Provo Craft made them when they were still producing non-tool items...and I loaded up on them. Thanfully I did, because they aren't going to make them any longer as they have decided to become a tool only company. Pity- I love the felt stuff.This card uses up some October Afternoon scraps that I have been hanging on to. I think this is a mix of a couple different older lines. I just adore that cute deer paper!
On this card, I broke into some new October Afternoon papers that I got from my lovely secret santa, Patrice. These are from the "Weathervane" collection...totally love those cute little houses.
As I was going through my papers...I came upon this cute collection by Imaginisce called "A Shore Thing". And considering it is FREEZING here right now...I thought a little summer card was appropriate. Plus, I just wanted to use the cute hula-ing penguin paper and rub-on. Hee hee!
I did do another card with the scraps from this one...but I hate it. So, I am not posting it. It went directly to the crappy cards box. That is basically like getting a life sentence in prison at my house...it goes to the box, never to be seen again. Hee hee!Josh and I watched a pretty good movie yesterday titled "21" that is on instant watch via Netflix. If you have an XBOX 360 and Netflix, I recommend adding it to your instant watch queue and checking it out. We both enjoyed it. Be ready for a bit of skin because most of it is shot in Las Vegas...but it isn't vulgar. Heck- it is rated PG-13, so they couldn't show that much. Hee hee!
I haven't done a music post in awhile, so I thought I would share a song and an artist that I love. His name is Joshua Radin, and I first heard this song when watching the movie "Catch & Release" (sidenote- I LOVE this movie. If you haven't ever seen it, I recommend this one too). The movie turned me on to his music, and I pretty much love everything he does. I have downloaded quite a bit of his music so far from iTunes, and hope to get more the next time I get an iTunes card. I hope you enjoy it!
(And I hope you don't find my random music posts annoying. I like to share little ways of getting to know me, without spreading my entire life all over the internet. If you hate my music posts, feel free to let me know. It won't hurt my feelings. Tee hee!)
Well, that is all I have for now. I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Sunday. I am off to switch the laundry around, and then back to make some cards! Love lazy weekends at home like this one!
