The longest short week ever!

What a week it's been for me...several friends commented that this was the longest 4 day week ever!  That's what it felt like for me with marching band and football season starting.  It's left me little time to work on cards, except for today.
I did participate in this week's Mid-week throwdown - I just never posted my card:
Today's sketch was fun!  I used papers & stamps from the July Simon Says Stamp kit club.
Another crooked card picture!  Here's our sketch:
There's so many great things going on at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog - it's been great reading. I loved the OWH ATG tutorial and I've wanted to bling out my ATG gun for a while - now maybe I'll do it. 
Today's sketch is sponsored by Paper Smooches and I don't have any of their stamps, but I really want to get some soon....hmmm...will have to add that to my wish list.
I hope everyone's having a nice day - it's finally cooled down to 86 degrees today in South Yaka-sakee (South Carolina).  Take care! 


  1. Erika, You are one busy lady. I'm amazed that you get as much done as you can. Good for you girl. Both of these cards are exceptional and will be very well received by the recipients. We don't care if they are crooked or straight as long as we get to see them.

  2. These are both sweet cards! I love the papers on your second card!

  3. These 2 cards are just great! I really like that darling little bluebird :)

  4. Aww, I love your Santa birdie. Very sweet! I say, go for blinging out your ATG. I own a few of them, and all are decorated. It's just so fun to personalize them!

  5. great card and colors-love the cup

  6. Great cards! The birdie card is adorable and the second card is sweet. I am not sure if you use digis...there are some cute free ones on the blog! TFS!!!

  7. Great cards, Erika! Love that sentiment with the tea cup. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
