thanks so much

Hello...Happy Saturday!

Welcome to another fun Card Patterns sketch and Sponsor!!!

This week we were able to play with Stampin' Up goodies from the wonderful Catherine Pooler, Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator!


I'll let you take a peek at my card and then share the sketch:


All the papers are from Stampin' Up...aren't the colors wonderful together?  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Three Little Words" set...personally, I don't think a girl can have too many sentiments!  I did a smidge of sewing but wanted to keep the overall design clean and crisp!

Check out this week's FAB sketch...I LOVE it!


The bloom is something that I received from my bloggie buddie Sherry...she hand made it from muslin..isn't it gorgeous?!

I hope that you play along with us...I'd love to see how the sketch inspires YOU!

**chit chat**

Well, I made it through my first week at work...whew...lots to take in but it is ALL so exciting...I've had some people ask so I thought I'd share that I'm in the Human Resources group for a design firm {interior/graphic/industrial} in Seattle...as you can imagine, it's thrilling to be a part of a creative industry!  Back in the day when I first started community college...I actually started off in an interior design program...oy, I was so young and not so motivated then...I ended up eventually just getting my credits to transfer to the University of Washington where in 2006 {long process...late bloomer...} I ended up with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree with a concentration in Psychology.

  5. Love these papers, the colors you combined are so yummy! I'm going to have to make some of those flowers, they are gorgeous! You were on my mind because a TsuruDa from WA bought some altered boxes from my Etsy shop. I wondered why a relative of yours would buy boxes from me when she had you around (if you were related)Then I remembered your name was not spelled with a "d". Well, I'm always glad to stop by and check out your fabbie work!!

  24. Girl, I am SO sorry that my life hasn't permitted me to get in here sooner and comment! Holy moses, usually I can find SOME amount of time during the day to blomment! Your creation from this sketch is just fantastic! Love the tiny bit of sewing you did, it's perfect on that pendant/banner piece thingy. Your having exposure to interior design certainly explains the perfection in your paper choices!! Jeepers!! That flower is great, is it pretty 3D or more flat?
