I had a great scrap weekend at Scrapbook Creations in Spartanburg SC with a few girlfriends. The best thing (in addition to seeing my friends) was that everything in the store was 40% off! Wowee! I spent too much money on new stamps and I can't wait to try them all out.
Since I had very little time to work on a card, I put these together quickly, loosely based on OWH's Sketch #155. I liked the sketch a lot and want to give it another try doing it exactly as shown, but I changed them up a bit based on the visual element I used.
I had the Nifty Fifties cartridge in my Cricut because I've been working on a heritage album and cut out the car on page 46. The plaid paper is something I've had forever and I was glad to finally use it! I printed the sentiment on my computer and cut it to fit. I made two cards - the first with the car cut at 2 inches; the second card with the car at 3 inches:
I'm submitting the above two cards for FCCB's latest challenge - It's a Man's World!
This Easter card is also inspired by the OWH sketch. The paper is glitter, but it DOES NOT come off! I listen closely to Sandy Allnock's glitter rule - does it rub off with a fabric? No! I bought the paper at Hobby Lobby last year in a small paper pack. The easter egg is from Heather M: Flourish Eggs:
My last card is from a card class I took this weekend. I love the happy little bears, which I colored with Copic markers. This card is a 5x7 card, so it won't go to OWH, but it was fun to make something a little different. I think I'll send it on to my mother-in-law:
I'm racing to fill my OWH box before the Jan 27 deadline! I can see so many of my fellow blog friends are busy too! Good work, ladies!
