CPC Sketch Tuesday #36

I am enjoying creating the sketches for the Christian Paper Crafts Sketch Tuesday Challenge! I am a computer nerd under all my crafty ways! My son loves watching me figure out how to work Photoshop. (Ok, he loves to LAUGH at me!) So, here is the sketch for today. If you play along at CPC, make sure to use keyword ST36 so we can find your work. If you play at another gallery, use keyword CPCST36. Make sure to drop us a line at CPC message board to say you played along!

I made this sketch with a scrapbook page in mind. But when push came to shove, there was no way I had time to make a page layout for today! So I made a card. (And yes, you nay-sayers! I do scrapbook...sometimes! LOL) I made the card to go along with 365 Cards Day 297 - which says to make a card with a spring or summer theme!

I used this super cute Sassafras paper. I love the pinks and teals, with the brown and white. So yummy.

I cut three tags with a Sizzix die, then stamped three different messages on them. I edged each tag with pink chalk ink, and added a glittery brad. (I think I may be over my glitter-hating days!)

This brown gingham ribbon was part of a packaging for something, and I still had some left. I really wish I could find a roll of this stuff! It's nice and wide, and just a tad stiff, so it's easy to work with. I tied a big bow, then added a button and some string.

I hope you are enjoying these Tuesday sketches. Make sure you play along at CPC! I am sure everyone there would love to see your work! Click here for the forum! You can also see the older sketches, if you need more inspiration.

  4. Very special sketch you've made! I really should try it.
    and your card is so "springy". full of happiness and joy.

    but it seems you and Rose are full of halo this week...

    and if I don't get the chance to say it the next 2 days, I'll say it here and now: Marry Christmas, dear. to you and to your family.
    may happiness, joy, good health and peace be your blessings.

  5. Awesome card, Gloria! You're right, the papers are pure yummyness, and I love the accents you used to accomplish it! I'm dying to see a scrapbook page!!! I bet you are pure talent on that compartment too!
