A few Sunday Afternoon Creations

I had a little time today to play (after my nap which I love almost as much as crafting)... so I decided to jump in and attempt the Retro Sketch challenge#21. Several of my very good friends participate and their cards are always scrumptious. I love how this came out and it is going to a dear friend who will not get it in time for her birthday but she will understand. I am sending her all the materials to make a card like it if she wants plus a few more goodies.

Here is the fun sketch:

It is a sketch from a card done by Tracey McNeely. What a fun sketch! Here is my attempt:
I used a piece of a box for the tag (I just peeled off the top layer), some ribbon I got from JoAnns for 99 cents a few weeks ago, and a SU! Birthday image as the recipient is a SU! demo. The papers are all SU! and HL Everyday Kraft.

My last creation of the weekend is a card for the SplitCoast Stamper's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. This week's challenge involved giraffes and our cards are going off to Alex who loves giraffes and is recovering from some pretty tough medical challenges for a teenage girl. I used some GCWV Safari paper, stash ribbon, and some Paper Studio animal gems. The image is from SU! and the stars were cut with a CM punch.




Now off to catch up on comments before bedtime. Hope everyone has an awesome week!!!

Hugz!

  2. Very creative with your first card using part of a box...which gives it a vintage look but you softened it with your doily...a nice balance there. And your second card for the tea party is really sweet and I'm sure will be so appreciated, I think I will try and send a card from my stash, I did send a card to Gypsy from one of the tea parties that I managed to make it to.

  11. What a super tag with the corrugated paper and the awesome ribbon. And, the giraffe card is just too cute. Hey, those naps may be the reason you are 'cool as a cucumber'..referring to the wedding plans, of course. :-)
