Pin It


Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! I'm off to get a much needed haircut here in a bit. Thank heavens for Tracy, she can work magic!

The good news...I have some rejected Paper Crafts sketch cards so I have something to share! Whoo! Hoo! *smile* I worked last Sunday and made 6 cards, 2 of which got picked up (I think it helped that of the 6 sketches I used, none were in the top 10 of submitted sketches, better odds!), so I'm happy as a clam! That leaves 4 others I can share now. (See how I'm good at math like that? No wonder I'm a teacher!). Of course, two of them are Halloween. I don't know why I have a thing about making Halloween cards, they rarely get picked up! ha!

Anywhooo, (Have I mentioned my dh HATES that expression?! There's little I do wrong in his eyes, ha!, but saying this is one of them!), I used sketch 48 for this one. I do LOVE working with sketches! You can see all the sketches at Paper Crafts Connections, here. I had these adorable Pink Paislee pocket envelope things from a Studio Calico kit, I think, so I thought they would be perfect for the sketch. I paired it up with yummy new Stampin' Up! Sweet Stitches paper. I had that blank moment again where I thought: What am I going to do for a sentiment on the big, blank front of the envelope. I tried to pull "you me" to go along with the "exclusive buttons" was a you can see...and rejected! ha!

Anywhooo, (again!) I better go get cleaned up. That's just one of those courteous things I do before I go sit in the hairstylist's chair. Hope you have a super fun Saturday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cardstock: SU Crumb Cake, Sweet Stitches designer series paper.
Accessories: Pink Paislee Pocket Envelope, Adornit sticker letters from Carolee's Creations, SU big designer buttons and linen thread, Janome Sew mini and white thread.

"See how I'm good at math like that? No wonder I'm a teacher!" <--- Lol!

Hey, Angie! I was wondering if you had submitted projects... Congrats on getting two cards picked for publication, that's awesome! I have also two projects that were selected for publication (out of twenty, though, so lots of rejects coming to my blog as well...)

I like the cute pocket and button on this card! Looking forward to seeing the other projects you'll post!

Happy weekend!
