2 Sketches 4 You Week of 1/19/09

This week was Kazan's turn at 2 Sketches 4 You. I really enjoy seeing each week's sketch but I had a hard time figuring out what to do! I had originally thought that since Monday was a holiday I'd get it done Monday but nothing came to me! Then yesterday my Mini-Monograms cartridge was delivered and I cut out this cute square and then went from there!!

The patterned paper on this card is from the DCWV Glitter Stack - I love the bling! The "U" is also from the Mini-Monograms Cricut Cartridge! The hearts are a Sizzix Original - Heart Border. The cute little "love" charm I found in the wedding section at Michael's (I walked down that row because another row was busy and there they were!).

So, even though I was having trouble with Kazan's sketch, I thought of even more ideas for Laura's sketch from last week! I have been busy all weekend making a scrapbook for my boss (he is leaving after Friday for another job). While I was making it, I was using the revolution die for small album pages (I'm putting them on some of the pages for people to sign and write things to him). All of sudden it hit me how those little album pages could have been used on Laura's sketch so here are a couple new cards for the sketch! The teacher card uses DCWV paper from the Fall Stack from either 2006 or 2007 (I mixed up the paper!). All the die cuts on it are from the quickutz revolution!

I used the album page again on Love Notes. The heart is a sizzix original, the flower is a sizzix original cut out of felt. And the love is a sizzlet. The paper is Cloud 9 that I got a couple years ago.

This Saturday, I'm getting together with my 2 good friends Gail and Bonnie to scrap! I'm very excited because we haven't all 3 gotten together for almost a year! Gail has a quickutz exclusive die she ordered for me last February and I haven't gotten it yet! Bonnie is planning chili for lunch and something with chicken for dinner. I need to bring some snacks! I'm also taking my cricut to show them as they have not seen one in action. My goal is to finish the 2009 calendar for my parents that I started before Christmas as a Christmas present. I've been giving them one each year along with an album with extra pages - then I have them put the calendar pages in the album so they have a little album of my kids each year. They haven't been home much since the first of the year so they wouldn't even be enjoying it so not so bad that I'm late!

We will see if I get it done! Take care and have a great rest of the week!

Wow! The card is beautiful -- the bling is great! What a terrific idea to thread ribbon through the mini-monogram and tie with a charm!

The teacher card is really cute, too. I bet you could use a variation for a retirement card!

You're always creative & inspiring!

I think you did a fabulous job on the sketch and that Mini-Monograms square is perfect for it :) Great job on getting more cards completed with Laura's sketch too :)
