Friday Special

Well I need to apologize for not posting on Wednesday. I have a terrible cold and it really knocked me down. I just couldn’t get the energy to do anything. To make up for that I have a card for you today. One of the blogs I read, fresh&fun, does a weekly sketch challenge. Beate is an amazing stamper and I am always envious of her creations. I decided to use her sketch to create my card for today. I also used a color combination I had used on a previously posted card that I love. Here is her sketch and my card.

Stamps:Doodle This, Doodle That, Time Well Spent, Sweet Shapes, Background Basics Paper:Garden Green, Marigold Morning – Cranberry Crisp (last year’s in colors), Pretty in Pink Ink:Garden Green, Marigold Morning, Cramberry Crisp, Versamark Accessories:Detail Silver Embossing Powder (Stampa Rosa), Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen, Pink Organdy Ribbon (JoAnn’s), red sticky tape, dimensionals.

Sorry the picture is dark. Not enough natural light. It is really sparkly with all the Stardust pen I used on it. May have to modify the colors and make this at my workshop for a Valentine card. What do you think?

2008 Coaster Calendar

We will be making a 2008 Coaster Calendar at our Alter this class for January. Here is a sample cover and the month of January that we will be making. The calendar will be hooked together by 2 rings. If you are interested in attending this workshop please feel free to contact one of us. Each month will be on a different color of cardstock and there will be 4 to 5 different elements on each page (DSP, Brads, Buttons, Stamped Image, Punches, Glitter, Ribbon).


*Please note that you will be able to pick your own cover – there will be pre-packaged bags with the elements you will need.
