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?

I love this card and the sketch, Amy! You do white cards well. As for neglecting paper, I really don't buy much paper, except SU. I am good in a store but not from the catalog! Have a fun Friday!

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!

June Houck said...

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!!!

Lindsay said...

Super fantastic card Amy! I LOVE those papers and that fun Hey sentiment!

Audrey Pettit said...

Well, what a fun little competition you've got going! You are going to rock the white card bases, I just know it. And what fabulous use of your papers. Love the strips here. Love the pleated ruffle. Adorable!

Kathy Martin said...

This is one cool card with all those stitched papers!

Clare said...

Fab card, love it! thanks for joining us at Card Patterns this week.

li-bee-ti said...

Perfect! I'm sure you'll manage doing white cs for the basis...

Trinh said...

I would have a hard time giving up my white card bases so I feel for your friend. You are rockin' it with this card! Love the strips of PP.
