Eye Candy, Plus a Sketch, and a RAK Winner!

I have a bunch of unrelated stuff to show you today. It's a crazy Friday. I have a lot to do for the weekend, and time's running out! Plus, my family is starting The Truth Project tonight at a local church. I am very excited, but it's a 13 week commitment, which is a little scary to me. My oldest son has to miss this first session because he's going to be at the Induction Ceremony for the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. (insert proud mom dance here)

Don't forget about the CropStop Crop which starts on Saturday at 8am EST. I don't have an embossing project to show you today, since I did one on Sunday for the CropStop Blog Hop, plus I'll have a tutorial tomorrow for the Crop. What more can one woman do?! (wink)

I do have a bonus card for you. I created this next card for my LSS club. I normally try to fit that kit into my other challenges, but this week I did not. So here it is, in all its blue glory! I used Pizzazzle cardstock, which I stamped with a script background stamp. The blue swirly paper, is actually a new product called Heidi Swap Invisibles. The pattern is printed in a resist material, so you can color the white paper and the pattern resists your medium. Cool huh?

I rubbed my sheet with Stampin' Up brocade blue ink, then buffed it off the pattern, and WOW, what a cool effect. The blue is much deeper in person, but still...awesome.

I sprayed some of these flowers with glitter mist, and the tiny pearls...I colored those with Copics. Even my ribbon has some blue sparkle to it.

Next I have the Practical Scrappers March Sketch. This is a fun one. I created this one for card makers, so hope it's easy for you to use!

Here is my card. Another Graphic 45 beauty. I also used a bit from an old book and this fun "domestic diva" playing card.

I love that trim. I used it all up and long to find more of it. I think a trip to The Fabric Barn is in order. My gal pals and I keep saying we are driving up there one day...hope it's soon!

Ok. last of all, here is the Simple Doodles challenge I teased you with on Tuesday. Did you guess GREEN? No? Too bad! That's the challenge - make a card with a digi image and some green. I used this sad little bunny and Cosmo paper.

Now for the RAK winner from my CropStop Blog Hop drawing! Drum Roll, Random Draw of the comments from the hop post....
