my wise friend...

Yup, Happy Monday!!!

Monday?

I'm bloggin'...what's up with that? It seems that I still create 7+ cards a week...rolling my eyes...I wanted to share some other things...happy mail and things that I've learned:)

I'll start with CP#39..fun sketch...I decided to design an American Crafts card..




I tell you...I adore those owls....the sentiment is a CHF set by the most fabulous Kim Hughes, U R A Hoot.

I love Happy Mail...who doesn't? I wanted to share what I recently received from the magnificent Rose of Rose's World. I won one of her Friday Freebies.

Check out the sweet card...
omgoodness...lookie at this fun notebook!!!

Grrr...sorry for the blurry interior shot but it is super sweet...scallops and all...

ahhhh....soooo much stinkin' cuteness!!!

Thanks sooo much Rose!!!! I'll be using it a TON!!!

I mentioned earlier in my post that I was going to share what I learned...

I was probably 1 of hundreds that applied for the 2 Sketches 4 You Design team...I didn't get picked up but will be sharing with you on Tuesday and Wednesday what I did with Laura and Kazan's sketches. I continuously learn that things happen for a reason...I look forward to learning who the new DT members are and also look forward to being inspired by them!

Thanks sooo much for stopping by!

I love this owl card! Your cards are always so fun! Sorry about the DT :-( I forgot to send my email in! I had it as a draft to review and never sent! I swear I am a dodo sometimes. I figure everything happens for a reason. :-)

Savitri said...

I love the AC paper but after I got it I've been having a hard time using them. I've done a couple things but not as much as I'd like with it. Dunno why. Love yours though and the other cards you're sharing today.

Elaine said...

Those owls are real charmers, aren't they!? I can't get enough of them either! :)

Was at BF today - bought some Graphic 45 and the new K & Co holiday pad - oh sweetness, I had to run or I'd have bought more@ I'll be back there again in about a week - 10 days...you should meet me!! :)

Michelle Bertuzzi said...

Oh sistah these cards are sooo stinkin cute esp that owl! I love how you made it diagonal instead of creating a half circle.

Rose said...

Amy! Such a cute owl card! Also, that's so sweet of you to post your freebie ;) Bummer about the design team, but the truth of the matter is, you totally inspire me anyway, so I'll be checking out your creations no matter what :)
