Okay, So I Have a Couple More Cards Today!

This is my fourth post for the day, so if you'd like to see some other cards with different technique, scroll on down.   This post is for several challenges - OWH Stars and Stamps, Papertake Weekly (x2), Bo Bunny, Our Creative Corner, and Play Date Cafe.

Now, first I'd better say this.  I really do other things during my days off besides creating!  I know I've shown you a lot today, and I've been blessed with the time to craft today.  With it being Easter weekend, I don't foresee much time to create this weekend, so I wanted to get my fill in today.  Got keep up that "paper therapy," you know!!

In this post, I am going to show you a sketch from OWH Stars and Stamps:


For the card, I've used:  CTMH Dutch Blue Textured CS (front and back), CTMH stamp sets Just Because and Picture Perfect, CTMH White Embossing Powder, and random ribbon.  This card will also go in the Papertake Weekly challenge to make a spring card, and Play Date's challenge to use different blues.



Next, I'll spring you another spring card (for Papertake Weekly and Bo Bunny) that I've created with Bo Bunny Abbey Road paper.  I used the Our Creative Corner Sketch for the week.  Along with the paper, I've used CTMH ribbon, gems, and pearls and Prima flowers.




Tomorrow is my birthday - 48!  Gosh, I am certainly reaching that 50 mark awfully quickly!  I am not certain where time goes, but I think it is absolutely true when they say that time goes faster as you get older.  Mind you - I am not "getting older" by any means!  I am firm believer that you're only as old as you feel.  Today when I was raking I felt my age (LOL!), but otherwise I am as chipper as a 28 year-old.  Glad to say I am much wiser than I was 20 years ago though!!  Jerry is taking the day off of work to help me celebrate tomorrow.  Macy's has a huge garden display on their 8th floor, so I am thinking I would like to go there.  Then, of course, we'll have dinner at Tryg's where Shane will be working.  Spending time with both my men is the best present I could ask for!!
