neglecting the boyfriend...

Today starts a friendly competition with my bloggie friend Sherry.  I always use kraft bases and she always uses white so we're switching it up...from today until next thursday I will only use white card bases...gasp!  I hope that I can do it...Why don't you pop over to Sherry's place and leave her some kind words on her kraft based cards:)  

Okay, check out my card...It's been awhile since I've played with the Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend Collection:


Lotsa stitching on this one...did you catch the paper 'ruffle'?

I was inspired by the current Card Patterns sketch:


and also the current DYSU challenge:




What are some paper collections that you've been neglecting?

  20. One day I will have a sewing machine and add awesome stitching to my cards so they are as cool as yours!

    What paper collections have I been ignoring? Uhhh... all the ones I own!

  21. My CC Boyfriend papers have been neglected too...I did pull them out before school started. Lately I have been ignoring BasicGrey (pick any line!) I do still love them, but there are so many more companies now than there were when BG was new. I love your pencil border on this one...genius :)

    Wahoo on the white card bases! I am a mostly white card base girl myself, but I have been trying to use kraft a lot more the past couple of months. Your yellow/grey/craft sofa card rocks, btw!!!
