Laura Sketch 5

Today is my part-time day so I had a little time to make a card following Laura's Sketch 5 at 2 Sketches 4 You. This time I used some Crate papers from the Polka Dot Whimsy July kit that I received last week. I think that the papers are perfect for a baby boy card, so that's what I made.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Crate Paper Ribbon: local market Embellishments: S.E.I. brad, Rusty Pickle button Rub-ons: Sassafras Lass Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly! Multi Retro Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171 Tools: EllisonDesign BigShot, Sizzix Traditional Bookplate die, sewing machine

My first DT card for 2 Sketches 4 You is also finished, but I can't show it yet. Not even a sneak peek. Sorry, girls! You'll have to wait till Monday. I can tell you though that it is a great sketch.....as always, so don't forget to check in on the 2 Sketches 4 You blog on Monday.

I received the Blogging Friends Forever award from Marije and Wilma. Thanks, girls!! I love visiting your blog, and I appreciate you also stop by and comment on my blog.

Carla, my blogging friend and fellow DT member at 2 Sketches 4 You, made it into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Top 10. Not a real surprise to me, because Carla's cards are simply gorgeous. She has a great style, and I truly hope she will win the contest. First she has to make it into the Top 5 and I am sure she will, but......she can always use some extra votes. You can find her unique card here. If you like it as much as I do just follow the link in her blog post and vote for Carla.

Well, I am off to prepare dinner and play a game with Fleur. Enjoy your day!

Heel mooi kaartje en als je hem nog een paar jaartjes bewaart(ik mag nu jammer genoeg nog niet zwanger worden ivm medicijnen) dan kun je hem mischien wel naar mij sturen :-)

I just finished my card for next week's sketch, too, and will be looking forward to seeing yours when it's posted at 2S4Y (unless you want to email me a sneak peek! I promise I won't tell! LOL! ;-D ). Just kidding! I'll just wait patiently for Kazan and Laura to post it!

Hey Ingrid, jou kaartjes zijn ook super. Spannend wat er geplaatst gaat worden in CO3. Ik hoorde gister dat hij voor een groot gedeelte klaar was voor een proefdruk. Trui gaat zaterdag met vakantie. groetjes Jolan
