Sketch This #100!!

Wow! I can't believe Janelle has her 100th sketch up over at Sketch This! I have been following Sketch This for 3 years now...and I have been on Janelle's DT for 2...I have had so much fun designing with Janelle's sketches...she is very, very talented. Thanks, Janelle!

I actually didn't get my card made in time to go on the blog :( But I still wanted to play here's my take:


Supplies: Stampin' Up cardstock and Kraft paper, American Crafts ribbon, My Little Shoebox PP, Hello Kitty (flower) and Don Juan (sentiment) cricut cartridges.

It's my daughter's 4th Birthday this Saturday so we're having a little Hello Kitty party! Here are the invitations I made....very simple since I made 10 of them.

it's a party

Supplies: Martha Stewart CS, Offray ribbon, Daisy Bucket Designs stamp, Hello Kitty cricut cart.

Easter cards

I was in Freddy's a while back and made an impulse buy....the new mini Cricut Easter cartridge. i just loved the images....I especially bought it for the fun circles (one of which I used in my second card below). Both of these cards are based on Janelle's sketch #99 for Sketch This! Such a fun sketch...I had to use it two ways.

Easter Egg.

...I really didn't make myself a card ;) I made this one for a dear friend of mine whose Birthday was Wednesday. It's kind of funny, the connection we have with people that have our name, isn't it? There is something special (at least to me) about sharing a name with someone....maybe it would be different if there were more people with my name, but I have only known a handful of Katie's in my life.

Happy Birthday Katie

Supplies: Pink Paisley and Making Memories PP, Jenni Bowlin card, Studio Calico stamp, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, American Crafts brads and glitter Thickers and Creative Imaginations trim.

I absolutely LOVED making this card with Janelle's sketch #98 for Sketch This! If you haven't already done so, please go check out all of the other designer's work won't be disappointed!!

I am so excited to be heading out of town with some girls from my church for our ladies retreat in just a few hours! yay :) Hope you all have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!

More thoughts of Summer

I saw the CPS sketch last night and decided to make a card. What I was planning on making and what I actually ended up with were two completely different cards altogether. I was originally going to make a heart card, but as you can see, I switched gears and ended up making another Summery card :) Maybe I will decide to make a heart card too with this sketch...we'll see.


Supplies: American Crafts cardstock, Shabby Green Door PP, baker's twine and cardstock sticker, May Arts ribbon and Martha Stewart sticker.

Have a great Tuesday, friends! Enjoy making all those Valentines :)
