Mr. Twigster: Laura's Sketch #8

Happy Monday! (Is there such a thing?! hee! hee!) I loved Laura's Sketch #8 over at 2 Sketches 4 You, so I had to go ahead and work on it tonight after I worked on swap cards some more. The prize this week over there is awesome, you'll definitely want to make a card and try! I've won before (not saying that to brag, just to show you that YOU can win if I won!) and my friends Jenn and Savitri have won, probably some more I'm forgetting too, so go give it a shot!!

Now for some Mr. Twigster challenge cards! Isn't he cute, by the way?! Love him!! (And did I mention he's a four-piece set for $13.95?! Available October 1st.) Below here are the challenge cards that my friends and I made in about 10 - 15 minutes at 11:45 p.m. before the crop ended. We all started with a Mr. Twigster stamped on Whisper White cardstock.

Here is my card, I just happened to have that scrap of Pumpkin Pie paper with the circle cut out and it framed him perfectly! I thought it was maybe too plain, so I added that striped circle at the bottom, but I'm really not loving it, think I like plain better!


This is Beverly's card. Love that red rick rack along the bottom and ALL those white brads she used...I told her my grandma was going to love it for her Christmas card this year! (They trust me to take their cards home and photograph them and return them, suckers! hee! hee!)


This is Margaret's card. It's so fabulous with the polka dot and yummy ribbon and perfect metal "believe", love it!


This is Valerie's card. I love the color combo she used and that fun kick with the Kiwi Kiss polka dot paper. Let me tell you, Valerie packs/brings the least of all of us, yet all night long when we need something, she reaches down and pulls something fabulous out and says, "I have this, will it work?" And it's always something unique and special and perfect!!


Okay, I should try to get to bed, but I haven't even caught up on my Google Reader yet, ugh! Today, I *finally* got to work with the students!! Yay!! I had really started missing being in the classroom after so much testing and analyzinig scores and grades and grouping students and making spreadhseets, etc. I'll be working with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in reading and math. We had a close call where I almost had to take thirteen 7th graders for an hour and thirteen 8th graders for another hour and teach them novels. Yikes! That was close! lol! They're great kids too, but I just *heart* the little ones...who let you love them and love you back! lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate all your sweet comments on my cards and the rockin' cards my friends made too! Y'all are the bestest and put a smile on my face everyday!

Have you stamped something today?
