Hey ya'll...is it friday already? This week I did not get any scrapping done whatsoever until last night. In fact I almost missed the OWH Sketch Challenge 13 and 13 is my LUCKY # and I probably did miss the Digi Design Challenge over at http://designed2delight.blogspot.com/.
The good news however, is that I did get my tiny crafting space re-organized...this is a good thing because my "crafting space" is actually the nook under my sons twin size loft bed-but it works for me since everything is in reach. I also received some sweet blog candy this week from Marcy Keifer At OWH and some lovely paper of all sorts from Karen Gori who also designed this weeks sketch (what a sweet lady)! And I won some more fabulous blog swag from Yvonne (Scrappy) over at http://big-scrappy-world.blogspot.com/ I am HOT...on FIRE...I hope this is NOT the start of menopause -lol!
So without further adieu here are my submissions for the Sketch 13 by Karen @ http://kajikit.blogspot.com/ . This one was a little different but I like "different"! You'll notice both cards have the same layout...The "DAD" card however is a bit unusual because what I used here is some contact paper that has the look of stainless steel. I ran it through my diamond plate folder on the cuttle-bug and wallah! Never over-look contact paper as a possibility! Then I needed some hardware but I wanted REAL MAN hardware so I went 'a huntin' in the hubbys old junk drawer and found these thingamajiggies. Now I did add some FLOWERS but they are very MANLY-FLOWERS don't ya' think? What I really wanted to use was some checkered flag paper behind the diamond-plate but....alas I didn't have any -I've added it to my shopping list though!
http://designed2delight.blogspot.com/. The little bear with flowers is a freebie from Faith S. - it's so cute -she gives you one every week if you play along. I layered the saying love ya' bunches over the bear to qualify for the sketch 13 again as well. So there it is...my creations of this week. TGIF!! Tonight is Crop Night at Michael's - See Ya there! - Woot Woot!
