{oh-so} sweet....

Welcome Welcome!!!!

I'm thrilled that this is my first post as part of the Whimsy Haven Design Team!

We're having a blog hop!!!

You should have hopped over here from the fabbie Amy C.'s blog:

Caffinated Cropper

If not, the hop starts at the Whimsy Haven blog!

I decided to use the Card Patterns sketch:

Sketch 59

I played with Sweet Bubblegum. Isn't it a 'sweet' image?!

I used SU Crystal Effects on all the bubblegums:) Here's a smidge of a close-up:

The red paper is from MME...I love the diagonal stripes:) I even used silver metallic paper for the coin slot area...it's from my Christmas card envies :) I topped off the bubblegum machine with a Kaiser Craft bling. See that blue polka dot paper? hahaha...it's actually from the MME Christmas pack..I love it and managed to use my last piece {booo hoooo!}. Everything is nestled on Bazzill and I finished off the card with PTI ribbon and button!

I do alot of design thinking during my commutes to and from work...they are easily 1 hour each way so I get some quality thinking time...LOL.

I combined the Rainy Day and Journal Card Set.....such fun....all combined with Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety....I love umbrellas....maybe because I live in the Pacific Northwest? Actually, I'd rather wear a raincoat and a hat than try to finagle an umbrella.

Be sure to leave some blog love for all the Whimsy Haven gals and over at the Whimsy Haven blog (you gotta check out Lindsay's new image...oh-so-CUTE & only $1 for today!!) for your chance to win a set from Whimsy Haven for FREE!!!!

  36. YEEEEOWZA what utterly GORGEOUS sketch cards, missus!!! i love both of them...pretty much equally, i think...well, ok, that little bling on top of the bubblegum machine might sorta clinch the deal that way, afterall! :)

    ps: how funny to "LOVE" umbrellas in a design sense and eschew them irl. sounds like something i would do!!! :)
