RS40

Good Monday morning.  Even though southeastern Wisconsin is blanketed in fog, the temperatures are in the 50s, and we have no snow to worry about for now.  A couple of years ago, as of yesterday, we were hit with a huge blizzard. I'm grateful we haven't been hit as of yet. Almost done getting my Christmas together. Just waiting for the cyber items to arrive then wrap and mail. A few cookies to bake, and then I'm done. Sorry if that sounds like I've really got things together, but I have to travel mid-month, and am unsure exactly when I'll be home. BIL needs some cardic care, and I am going to help my sister. Prayers for good outcome are sincerely appreciated.

I'd like to say thank you to the DT over at Unscripted Sketches. One of my cards made the Top 3, and I am honored and humbled to have been chosen. You can see the sketch and my card here: US Top 3. This is a very fun place to play; I highly recommend it, and you can bet I'll be playing there again soon!


I'm not sure about you, but I really like sketch challenges. This week over at Retro Sketches, there's a really fun sketch:




Thought I'd play along and here's what my take looks like:


Once again, I've used all scraps except for the white Bazzill cardstock base. The blue snowflake paper is from BoBunny, and its reverse is the red polka dot. SU ink, stamp, blue polka dot, and cardstock. Random red cardstock, a scrap of striped. Random button and mini-skinny ribbon. The center square is pop-dotted above the rest of the card. I do like this, and I hope you do too! Happy Dances everyone.

Fabulous-omondo (special word for a really special card!)

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely beautiful! You have such incredible talent at combining the patterned paper to create a masterpiece....and all with bits of this & that. It really does look like a kit that a paper company would market! Love the skinny mini ribbon & button. Beautiful!

Awww...shucks! Thanks Geri. It could be a kit, couldn't it. I'd have never thought of that if you hadn't mentioned it. And mostly scraps too. I am so addicted to paper crafting....

Thanks Shari. I knew a Shari Nelson back in junior high school! Spelled the same way. Are you from the Twin Cities area? I'm glad you liked my card! Stop back again anytime. Bev
