First, I crocheted an adorable little flower using Nichole's pattern. Love this pattern--thank you Nichole!!! The great thing about it is you can create a little flower from any color embroidery thread you want--so you can be all matchy-matchy with any patterned paper you like!!!
Then I went a little overboard with my sewing machine on a card I was making . . . once I started I just couldn't stop!!! I think I did too much, but I'm pretty happy with the general idea of the card. The layout is from Jen's Sketch for You to Try.
Stamp: Unity from May KOM Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa Cardstock: Kraft from SU! Paper: Reagan's Room Collection from Heidi Grace Ribbon, thread, button, embroidery floss for flower all from JoAnn's.
Wowza!!! Somebody stop me!! I actually stamped TWO cards today!! This one is a Mojo Monday sketch and uses a Unity monochromatic challenge. I think I would like this one better if I did it in red. Perhaps I will remake it tomorrow. Enjoy!
I LOVE the sketches at 2 Sketches 4 You!!! Twice now they have pulled me out of a complete creative SLUMP!!!! True, I have been incredibly busy with my classwork for my first grad class and taking care of (playing with, really) my sweet little boy, but even when I've had a spare moment, I have not had any clue how to start stamping again. It has been a long dry spell. This morning I saw Laura's sketch 27, and just decided to jump right in. I felt inspired, I knew just the colors I wanted to use, I basically just whipped the card up from start to finish with no pausing to make decisions. I LOVE it when that happens!!! I love it even more when I actually like the finished product--and I adore this one!!! The colors are just so bright and happy. What do you think?This is my entry into the 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown!!! Wish me luck!
