Today it is Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 Cards and this was the sketch we had to follow.
My daughter Courtney, asked me if I could make a card for a friend who had just found out she was having another baby. So I decided to use the sketch from today with what my daughter wanted for her friend and above is the result. I chose lavender and lemon as the sex of the baby is not known yet. Once again I have used stamps on the oval from my ancient stash which this set was from Hero Arts. I am liking the Storybook cartridge from Cricut more and more each time I use it. It certainly got a workout while I was away with everyone wanting me to cut things and each one looked lovely.
Which reminds me here is a journal I made from scratch using my Bind-It-All etc and if you clink on Courtney's blog you will find the one she made from scratch on that weekend away. . .I just checked you only get to see the added extras for inside the journal hehehe. We both decided to make it grungy and the paper that we used for inside the journal was gifted to us from Shirley which belonged to her husband who was a Highschool Principal until his death a couple of years ago. It was foolscap and it felt sooooo so nice to touch, so smooth and creamy. Courtney and I are paper pervs lol.
I still want to add more inserts etc I really love making journals and I sell heaps of them at my market stall. I put acetate page dividers stamped with flourishes etc inside as well and all sorts of pockets for pics or other memorabilia. Each journal is different. Well that is it for me today so until tomorrow. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
