Domestic Goddess

Okay, I had a ton of fun putting these 2 cards together.

I'm entering both of them in the
Moxie Fab World Around the House Challenge.

The first one is for
Kazan's Sketch #35. I rotated the sketch and did my thing :)


(Hey Sherry & Tami...check it out...Graphic 45!!).

I had a gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket for the local Ben Franklin Craft Store. Well, they had a whole display of this magnficent Graphic 45 stuff....Domestic Goddess. Isn't she fabulous...complete with a crown!

I stitched the 2 panels together....1/4 of the way down my stitching went wonky...grrrrrr....so being the way that I am...I took the time to remove the stitching and lined it up and went for it again. I couldn't bear to 'toss out' the panels...especially since I only bought 1 sheet of each pattern. So although this card looks like it should be a slam dunk, it ended up being quite labor intensive.

Yes, I'm using more of the ZVA crystals...love them...tons....I yet again altered the shape {snipped here and there} to make so that it would fit...and what's that I see...yuppers...a PTI Pure Poppy button!! wooo hoooo!!! I distressed all the edges, including the Domestic Goddess tag...

Next up, a new challenge site for me....

She is celebrating her 52nd sketch with a $52 spending spree!!! Check out the deets...she needs 52 players...come on ladies {and dudes}....I'm telling you, it's soooo worth all the fun!!!! Thanks to Tami for giving me the heads up on this one :)

Okay enough with the chit chatting...here's the fun sketch:

Here's my entry #2 for the Moxie Fab World Around the House Challenge:


All the patterned paper is ala
Teresa Collins {yes, picked up a couple sheets with that fabbie gift cert!}. Surprise, surprise...I'm using Thickers...LOL. How do you like my 'flatware'? I've had those for, well, years...I happened to go to a Packaging Specialties 'garage sale' and picked them up there.

Thanks to my very magnificent friend 'm' for the gift cert...I also bought one of these and one of these.

Soooooo much stinkin' FUN!!!!

Well, that's it for today...come on back tomorrow for my 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday card!!!!
