This sunshine is all for you....




Happy Friday!!!

I have certainly been enjoying my days off from work...trying to pack in all the crafty time that I can!!!

I love Laura's sketch 29, such a great design. I wanted to break out the Jillibean Black Bean soup line...Kraft and Black teamed up together? How in the heck can you go wrong with that super color combo?

I added the Bean Seeds for a pop of color topping them off with a sweet acrylic button that I found in my stash! I went ahead and added the 'vintage' Making Memories rub ons...super easy smeasy card. Everything is nestled on my Flourishes Acetate base.


What?!

Another card...2 cards in 1 post? This is my take on the CPS122 sketch for this week. I have to tell you, this is the 3rd one I made...I decided to really put my spin on the sketch and not adhere to it as strictly as I did on the other 2....they are totally not posting worthy :)

No surprise that it is a Cosmo'licious filled one too! Okay, do you know what inspired this card? Check this out. I absolutely a-dore that sun image in July's KOTM! I'm tempted to join BUT realistically can't justify it because I've become such a scrappy card maker...I don't stamp a whole lot these days sooooooo perhaps this will be my motivation to start stamping more??!!

I stitched around the card...great way to adhere the sun down...I was going to stitch the rays too but what in the heck was I thinkin'? Crazy talk {sista's I'm your basic lazy crafter...lol..actually not a seamstress and it seems the janome sometimes has a mind of her own!}...so I just used my fav...scotch double sided tape...what is your fav adhesive?

Okay, check back tomorrow...I'll have a couple Cutting Cafe projects to show ya...and a free giveaway!!!

  7. I joined the kit club last month, and was not disappointed ... so many awesome stamps and ready to use right out of the container. I used to be a scotch double stick tape gal (bought in bulk at Sam's Club) until I got my 3M tape gun ... now that's my adhesive of choice ... awesome cards.

  26. Crazy card makin' woman! Two sketch challenges in one post! Love them both, but I think I like the second one better...which is odd because I am a sucker for kraft cardstock. Have a great 4th~

  33. Great job! I love kraft but I do think the second one is my fav!

  34. Love the kraft & black-wonderful card! The sunny card is fresh and fun! The Unity stamps KOTM is an absolute screamin' deal! HUGE value! I did it for three or four months, but unsubscribed when I moved. It's one of the best values in stampin'. You have become quite a scrappy gal these days, but Unity is a good fit with the scrappy set, I think.

    I have three adhesives I use regularly. First my ATG gun, that's the basic. Second, my Scotch foam mounting tape. Third, glue dots. These are the three I don't think I could do without.
