SSSC #66, Easel Card and a Blog Award....whew!

Heads up - there's lots going on in the post! :)

The 1st thing I'd like to share is a new card made with this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge . Here is the original sketch and my take on it...



The hedgehog is from Create a Criter (what else?) cut at 1.5" and the scallop and circle are from Mini-monograms cut at 3.5" and 3.75" in that order. (I know it sounds backwards but I didn't want a huge space between them and if I cut them both at 3.75" there was, so I made the scallop a little smaller - this is with the REAL SIZE DIAL OFF!)

The next thing is a card that my friend Tammy and I made together. We had seen several easel cards lately and decided to give one a try, here is what we came up with...




The cupcake (also from Create a Critter) is cut at 3" and the finished card it 4.25" x 4.25". The photo shows the card open, the pink strip and border are on the inside of the card. Let me know if you would like more detailed instructions on how to make an easel card. :)

And last, but not least, Shelley over at Heart String Designs gave me a Sunshine Award. Thank you so much Shelley - you rock! :) Please check out her blog when you have a chance.


I am supposed to sent the award on the five blogs that I enjoy and tell you ten things that I like. Hummmm... that is hard, there are so many great blogs out there! Ok, here are some newer (at least for me) blogs that I have found...
  1. Chubby Cheeks Things - this isn't a craft blog but I still think it's worth sharing! Kim does lots of reviews/giveaways on kid and mommy products. Check it out, I think you'll be glad you did!
I just listed 10 things that make me happy a few posts below, if you'd like to check it out click here. :)
I hope everyone enjoyed my newest creations, see you soon!
