Happy Birthday

Linda Carson, Verve

     Hello!  Today I took some Cosmo Cricket papers and made a card using this week's Deconstructing Jen's sketch with a Verve sentiment.
     The embellishment came with the papers.  I normally don't use those but this one worked just fine especially since I didn't like what I originally had in mind.
     I have a little tip of something I do.  When I use a sketch that I like from a challenge I'll sketch it out in a notebook.  After making the card I'll go back and measure the length and width of each element, square, etc. and jot those on the sketch in the notebook.  This way the next time I make a card using the sketch it's a breeze to come together.  I hope all that made sense and may be something you might try.
     Thanks for dropping by!  Enjoy your day!

You Are A Blessing

     Welcome friends!  Today we begin a new bimonthly challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs.  We want to see stitching either real or faux on your card or project.

 Doily Blessings, Elizabeth, Doily die, Vintage Labels die, Soulful Stitches, designer Linda Carson
      My card features products from this month's beautiful release. The sentiment is from the Doily Blessings set.   The dress/form is a single stamp named Elizabeth.
     I used the Doily Dies as well as the Soulful Stitches Papers.   Vintage Labels were used to cut the sentiment where you'll see the stitching.

Different Flamingo

Linda Carson

     Hi friends!  I hope this card doesn't make you dizzy!  It's pretty bold and wild!  I'm playing along with this week's Mojo sketch challenge.
     I'm having playtime with my new Fabulous Flamingo set and dies from Reverse Confetti.   I like all of the sentiments in this set so you'll see it again. 
     This particular sentiment just screamed to make one of the flamingos different.  That's why one is traditional pink and the other is red.  I also used one red sequin outside the box to continue the different theme.  Fun, huh?   
     The papers are My Mind's Eye.
        So glad you came to visit!!  May you have a creative day filled with mojo!!
