A Few Cards and Other News


Posts will be sparse for awhile as my husband and I are in escrow! I will soon be packing up my craft room, which is quite a daunting task. We have been jumping through all the hoops that comes along with buying a house and are just itching to move in. Now onto the cards...

 I made this card for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #157 but wasn't able to get it posted in time.
The challenge was to create your own cover plate using dies. I added bunches of Pretty Pink Posh sequins to resemble confetti.

Sending Hugs...retrosketches #106

 My husbands grandparents lost a very dear pet a few days ago, so I created this card to send to let them know we are thinking of them during this difficult time. 


I used Kraft cardstock (PTI) as my base and a few different patterned papers from the Story Teller collection (Crate Paper). The tissue box and sentiment are both from the Lawn Fawn On the Mend stamp set. 


Be sure to check out the retrosketches blog to see what others have created using this sketch.
