2S4Y, Caardvarks and CPS

This week is really flying. I can't believe it is already Wednesday!
I finally got around to making my challenge cards for the week.
This first one is for 2 Sketches 4 You. It's Laura's sketch. I used my new Jenni Bowlin goodies along with a Melissa Frances glitter star that I spritized with Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist.




I just love how this next one turned out. I am definitely a flowery, girly girl when it comes to making cards. (I discovered that this past week as I tried, unsuccessfully to make a masculine card for Emma's...it was really hard!) I used BG Sultry paper, and a BG and Close to my Heart stamp. I want to get more into stamping, so I pulled them out for this card this week. I ran the kraft cardstock through my Revolution using the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder. I can't get enough of that thing! This card is based on both the CPS sketch this week and the Caardvarks challenge to use kraft cardstock on a card.






Finally, here is a peek at my post for this week on the MMM blog. I posted my layout that was in the Memory Maker's March/April issue with close ups and how to's for making embellishments from plastic packaging. You can find it all HERE.





Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great week!

What beautiful cards, Anabelle! I adore the new JB goodies and love to see what you've done with them. Spritzing the glitter star is such a great idea. And I know just what you mean about masculine cards. It is really hard to try to keep feminine touches off my projects. I just struggled making a birthday card for my brother. Your Basic Grey card is fabulous. Love how it looks with the kraft, and I always love the swiss dots embossing.
I need to go check out the MMM blog. Your page looks fabulous.
