The Paper Variety - card sketch by Abby!!

I so love this sketch!! It's easy! Open to interpretation! And FUN!! {My kind of sketch.} Thanks again, Abby!! :) :)

April, from the Paper Variety's Design Team A, is sick this week. {feel better soon, April!!}

We were able to substitute a card I had made for this challenge. I used some Jillibean pp (found in this week's prize!) and some older thickers. Note - when your old thickers letters no longer stick, don't sweat it. Just apply a tiny bit of glue using a small paint brush to the back of each letter before applying to your project. I've been applying glue to thickers for a while now...and for me, this is the easiest, least messy, way. :) The Offray ribbon on my card was pleated and then machine stitched. Twine is from The Twinery and buttons are some of my faves from Fancy Pants.

{hello.} Hope you'll get the chance to play with us this week at The Paper Variety!! Take it from me...the prize is so fun!! These jillibean products are some of my all time favorite scrappy things. Please upload your card to the Paper Variety by next Tuesday, February 22, for a chance to win.

Thanks for coming by my blog. Hope your day is full of good things!

hugs, patti

This is the cutest card ever... It's so cute it makes me want to stab my eyes out. That's a good thing. Well, good for you for creating a cool card, but bad for me because I like my eyes.
