More From the Weekend

What will we do after Angel's birthday passes this week? I've been looking forward to her sketches every day! Maybe I'll have to start creating my own?

Here is card #24. I have to say I don't love it and this will NOT be the Christmas card I send out. But here it is anyway... I started with dark green cs base, then put a strip of Provo Craft Holiday Slab V striped paper, mounted on a panel of glacier blue. The snowflakes are stamped with Color Box Chiffon White. (What white ink does everyone use? I have 4 that I've tried and haven't found the perfect one yet.) The snowflake on the scalloped circle is stamped with silver and then clear embossed. I put rhinestones in the centers of the snowflakes and Stickles the tips for some bling.
The second card here is for sketch #25. I have to say, I REALLY like this one. I was going to head up to
bed but decided to crank out one more card. DS
is going to a birthday party tomorrow, and I needed
a card for a girl turning 4. Her mom will probably appreciate this more than she will, but still... I used a pink cs base, then put the dp on - Chatterbox Scrapbook Walls in Rosey Nook Plaid and Ribbon Stripe. The panels are burgundy and pink and white scrap. The stamps are SU! Border Builders stamped in Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Pixie Pink. I stamped the white twill with the flower from the set in Pretty in Pink and Old Olive. The sentiment is from the Mike's $1 bin on pink scrap in Baroque Burgundy. Oh, and of course I Stickled the centers of the flowers. I have been Stickling everything since I received my first bottle last week ;)
Well, off to bed now. My eyes are starting to feel gritty because I'm tired, so I know my day is ending. I hope you all enjoy your extra hour! Thanks for looking!
