2 Sketches 4 You Cards week of December 29, 2008

This week I'm off work but it has been really busy. The kids have had other kids over several days and we got hair cuts (rescheduled from the snowy weather days!) and doing all kinds of other things going on! I thought I would have gotten the sketches done earlier being home!

The first card is based on Katie's Bonus Sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. I know I didn't use 2 symmetrical things on the top and bottom but I saw the round thing in the middle as the world and since I'm going to need to make lots of valentines for the food drive at work, I thought I would turn it into a valentine! The world is from the cricut cartridge Locker Talk. All the paper on this card is from the Basic Grey Boxer Line. World is cut with the Cricut Don Juan font. The heart charm is a sizzix (metallic paper on chipboard) so it looks like metal! It is kind of a non-traditional valentine!

My friend Jennifer and her girls came over last night. The kids play and we "play" with our die cuts! We cut out things with each others die cuts that we don't have. I had bought this cute little owl from the quickutz release in November 2008 and when she started cutting them out, I just had to also! I used Kaiser jewels for the eyes instead of cutting them out so that I could give them a little more dimension. I came up with "owl" always love you for a valentine and I tried with two type of paper that I had in my stash. Not sure either one of them came out quite how I had envisioned them using Laura's sketch but here they are.

The first one uses Cloud 9 patterned paper, owl cut from the cricut Don Juan font and a prima flower. The 3 jewels below "always love you" are also Kaiser jewels.

The 2nd one uses SEI Cupid's Candy Shop paper, owl cut with Quickutz Sophisticate font , and brads from Oriental Trading.

Here is Laura's Sketch 16:

Happy, Scrappy New Year!
