Card Patterns - #124

Hello once again everyone. Here it is another day and I have another card for you. I did this one at the same time as the other one yesterday but I thought that I would put them up a day apart. Below is the sketch that we were to follow over at Card Patterns and we could turn it whichever way worked for us.

Here is my card following the above sketch. I used Basic Grey's Curio 6x6 paper pad, SU cardstock (of course lol), stamp pad in Early Expresso, stamp sets Aviary and Short and Sweet for the sentiment, ribbon from my stash, flower from I Am Roses and the pearl hearts I have had in my stash for over two years and only now decided to use them hehehe.

Well that is all for another day but in the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Sweet Sunday Sketch - #126

Heeellllooo Bloggers!! It has been quite a while since I did a post and there have been extenuating circumstances that have kept me from blogging or crafting for that matter. I won't go into it here as it is rather private and to do with my family but I have not felt much like crafting for some time. Today I had to teach a private scrapbooking class and decided to work on a couple of sketches after my student went home. I looked for a challenge or two and found Karen's Sweet Sunday challenge which I used to do on a regular basis with my friend Sherry. What better way to get back into the swing of things. I had so much fun making this card and it did take some time as I am so anal about where things go etc lol. Below is the sketch we were to follow. . . .

And here is my card following that sketch. I really love how it turned out. I used The Timsters Vintage Shabby paper pad and Basic Greys Out of Print 6x6 paper pad. I used SU cardstock, inks, and pom pom trim as well as the eyelet border punch. My flowers are from I Am Roses and I cannot do without these flowers now. The stamped image is from Kaisercraft and the sentiment is a SU one.

Okay until the morning that is all from me tonight.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
