UseIt! challenge #12

~for you~

Check it out!
It's an extra awesome challenge this week @ UseIt! LOL!

For this card, I started with some old Crate paper.
I added some coral/pink AC paper,
a page from a jenni bowlin mini book,
and then stitched a little bit of scalloped cardstock.
The chipboard is from MM & foof-a-la, if I'm
remembering correctly 'cause this stuff is old. ha ha!
Flowers & buttons are prima, MM & AL.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you get a chance
this week to complete this fun card challenge.

Also, a special shout out of thanks to Rae @Use It!
What a sweetheart she is!

2 Sketches 4 You ~

2 Sketches 4 You, challenge #26, sketch by Laura.

I ordered some Short Cuts cards last month and was psyched to see this challenge @2S4U. This is the first card I've made using them....and I'll tell you, they're sort of hard to photograph. This is a card that's better in real life.

I used Pink Paislee pp & chip, Sassafras pp, some primas & a Heidi Swapp sticker. I zig zag stitched on the front of the card, and my machine easily sewed through the acrylic.
{Really like these frosted short cut cards.}

Thanks to Laura & Kazan!
