Random Cards

Here are a few cards I've put together recently.

"You look great" card is a donation card for a lady who needs 1500 cards for a charity function - you can read all about it here this will take you to a post at My Pink Stamper.  I only made one - I might put a few more together - the sentiment is from Create with TLC.
I've been using natural kraft as a card base a lot lately - the rest of the paper is just from my stash - paper flowers coloured with copics, tiny bit of machine stitching and some ribbon - I thought the heart brads with some stickles would bling it up a bit!
Next up is a baby card - a co worker had a little baby girl.  I just love this card - I change it around for boy or girl and make it quite often. Anyone who owns an original cuttlebug received the folder with the baby carriage but it had a number on it that I didn't like.  I took the number off with an xacto knife - I also use the die that came with it as well - I use the Swiss dots folder and stamp the 'precious' sentiment on the bottom. This card is all bazzil card stock.

The last card is a flowerpot card - I send this off in a package to my mom.  It was a card template that I purchased from The Cutting Cafe - I ended up cutting it on my cricut with Sure Cuts Alot.  It is a simple design, you can cut the base by hand and used punched flowers of layer circles to fill up the card with flowers.  I' also used the cuttlebug on the flower pot - I used co ordinations card stock and sanded it out a bit. You could really get creative with this one!

Hybrid Birthday Card

Seems like I only get to play along at 365 Cards on Sundays!  Well one day is better than none! Today is day 188 and Sunday is always (...wait for it!) - Super Sketchy Sunday - a terrific sketch that I sort of turned upside down!

I'm calling this a hybrid card for 2 reasons -  I have used a digital sentiment from Create with TLC and  I scanned in some paper that I wanted to use but my piece (green behind the bikes) was too short. I also scanned in the blue from my triangle and printed my sentiment right onto it so it would all match.

My card is 3 3/4 x 9 on natural kraft. The patterned paper is old but one of my favourites - Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse mat pad.

Below is the sketch and my card, hope you can play along - happy Sunday & thanks for stopping by!

Wacom Tablet - this would be great to win!

I'm trying to win a Waccom Tablet in this contest and need to collect votes. I didn't realize it worked like that I entered it months back - for some reason I thought they just did a draw from the enteries received - oh well; I guess I can always go buy one!

Here is my original post - thanks for stopping by!
