Sketch N Scrap Birthday Bash Sketch Challenge

Well Here I go again .....

Today I have a card made for a challenge posted by 
DT member Hillary Harris 
Here is a link to her Blog 
Heart for Handmade

Sketch n Scrap

Her challenge was a choice of a card sketch or a layout 
and it had to be a Birthday theme 

here is the card sketch I chose

and here is my card ....

Thought it was pretty cute...
I don't have an oval cutter and
if you knew me ... a hand cut oval never turns out to my standard to 
I pulled out the only oval punched I owned and got creative!!
I did it late last night while I was being creative with a new TRACY 
inspired project - 
reveal on that to come....

 Yesterday was also a great mail day ....
another crafty friend turned me onto Peachy Cheap & 
man do I love treats delivered to the door!!

Especially October afternoon ....

Have a creative day!!!

Sketch n Scrap Card Sketch #25

Well I am on a roll 
& have completed the third Challenge at Sketch N Scrap.

I Changed the Sketch around a bit - as I tend to do 
The Sentiment was supposed to be square with a 
round background - I REVERSED it !! What a rebel! lol

Here is the Sketch

Here is my card:
 this is the inside ....

Other than that changing the shapes - I have a flower, gross grain ribbon, 
top of the card and bottom are different colours - 
or Shades with a vellum overlay ...
and I even coloured the image with my copics! .

My friend Tracy would be proud .. 

Have a creative day !!

They may need to be changed -

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
