Laura's Sketch #12: Holidays & Wishes


Happy Saturday! I barely made it with something today! Decided at 11:00 I better make a card for Laura's Sketch #12 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I made the chipboard bird the other night for a different card, but it didn't work out, so luckily it was salvaged for tonight!

I made this paper rosette a different way, using one piece of paper. I had tried it before following Martha Stewart's instructions, but I think I was cutting the paper too wide maybe. I tried it again following Lisa Pace's instructions and it worked better. I cut the paper 1" x 12", then scored every 1/4", and glued the ends together. The center wants to pop up, but will stick down with a glue dot or strong adhesive.

Thank you so much for all of your well wishes for my past week and for your sympathy with my button spill! I wish some of you "Monk" (that cracked me up when Tara said it!) and OCD types lived closer and could come reorganize them for me. I'm ashamed to admit it, but they're still sitting there, behind the craft closet door, like that! I know once I start picking them up I'll be compelled to resort them too and just haven't been able to face it yet! lol! I did do a major clean-up on my stamping desk and my office desk today, though, so that feels really good now!

Okay, off to Bedfordshire again (the movie is Bridget Jone's Diary!). Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
