Hello again!! Here is my card for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I needed a card to go along with a gift I am sending to my friend, so I used the challenge to get it done!! Go me!!! The DP is by Crate Paper and is part of the Seaweed collection. I paired it with Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow. The main image is from Papertrey Ink and is called Out on a Limb. I did a lot of sponging with Chocolate Chip ink and pierced a whole bunch too...I am obsessed, what can I say. All the hardware is from the SU retired Antique Brass hardware. The ribbon is all from SU too. That is it for me now..kind of short but sweet right??!! I REALLY need to get my google reader caught up, so gotta run. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Prettie Wednesday- Shaker Card

Hey everyone, so sorry this is late! I usually try to get my Prettie Wednesday cards made early and posted ahead of time so I don't have to worry about them, but I have been super tired all week and just never got around to it. That and the fact that I really have a hard time making shaker cards! I decided that since the only color of beads that I have were blue, they were gonna have to represent water.LOL! So I dug out my Beach Bum image and got to work. Cooper was stamped with Black Stazon on White and colored with my SU markers, Pacific Point ink pad and aqua painter. The frame was cut out of PP CS and Bashful Blue using my Cuttlebug and Nesties. The PP part was also embossed with my swirls embossing folder as well as the white in the back ground. This card is BASED on Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch, but I couldn't get it to work with the two skinny panels, so I ended up with this. Hilariously, this card is on it's way(tomorrow) to my BSF Jodi. What is hysterical about this you ask.......I spent the better part of last night begging her to make one for me and let me post it today!!! ROFLMBO!!! This weeks challenge is the SUPER talented Julie Masse!! Can't wait to see what she has in store for us!! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!
