congrats-sami.jpg  Oy!  What a way to start my day… first,  I wanted to share my niece’s graduation card.  Sami is my youngest neice and is graduating with her degree in arts.  She is a very gifted photographer.   We are heading down to her graduation party on Sunday and will be celebrating Mother’s Day as well.  

Why oy?  Well, Wednesday I got a call that my mil is in the hospital.   Nothing life threatening, but at age 82, most trips to the hospital are a huge deal.   We’re praying she is released in time for Sami’s party.

Ok, back to the card.  Sami is artsy person, so I went a little non traditional on this card.  Since yesterday’s challenge was to use chipboard and i don’t have much, I chose to monogram her card with a great big S.  I covered the S in basic grey blush paper and roughed up the edges a bit. 

Here’s the deets on this one:

Stamps:  Birdie and Branch by Verve Visual; Sentiment by My Favorite Things

Colors: (I’m using up scraps here!)  Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral and Basic Grey Blush DPs

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black

Accessories: brads, ribbon, chipboard, scissors, nail file, slit punch, scissors, paper piercing tools


sunflower-for-you.jpg    Now on to today’s sketch challenge!   I went with one that will work well as a tall card, square card or regular card.  Simple layout, but lots of possibilities!

here’s THSC12’s layout:

Here’s my deets on this one:

Stamps:  Sunflower, Pot and Sentiment by Hambo Stamps (

Colors: Chocolate Chip, Mello Moss, Really Rust, GP White, MME Dps

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics

Accessories:  Brads, ribbon, dimensionals, circle punches, scissors, cuttlebug birds and swirls EF

TFL!~  and have a blessed day!

    Love Sami’s card and love how the scallop is on the top. Thanks for the sketch too – nice and easy, just how I like them 🙂 Love how you did the sentiment on yours – that punch out is always so effective and the three layers are a nice twist too.

    Have a wonderful weekend with all the celebrations, and Happy Mother’s Day to you 🙂
