While I have a craft room, I use it for storage as I love to craft on my kitchen counter. Lately my counter has been full of cards and crafting supplies. Luckily, I have a really sweet husband that never says a word about it unless he gets glitter on something he has set on it - LOL! Yesterday and this morning, I made a bunch of cards so my counter was covered. I am going to share a few of those cards, but first I wanted to share a baby card I made a few months ago:
I had to wait to share it because it was part of a Squigglefly layout in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.
Here is the full layout:
They got my name right but they put Darlene Pavlick's picture instead of mine - they put her picture on her card too so it looks like we are twins. I didn't want to use my picture anyway - LOL. Darlene and I are Sister Squigglefly girls so it is all good! I can say I was published anyway! My card is made with a new image at Squigglefly by Carmen Gamble called SweetPeas (there are two darling images in the set) and the sentiment is by Elizabeta Kushner called New Baby Sentiments (there are 4 in the set).I used some lace I received from Pat Smethers many years ago, lots of green buttons, and some papers from my stash.
I made this card for the retrosketch challenge #100:
The image is by Lynne Stansbery and is called Blow Me a Kiss (also available at Squigglefly). My papers are from Mark's Finest Papers and The Paper Studio and I covered them in Stampendous embossing powder heated from underneath. Lynne's sweet image is softly colored with chalk pencils. My corner punch is an old one from SU! and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
This card was made casing stamperrobin on Splitcoast Stamper (she is Queen for the Day) and using the really cool colors from the inspiration picture on Inspired By (#105) - love those colors! Robin's card is gorgeous and she used a verse stamp by Our Daily Bread Designs so I did too. I love Robin's gallery so I was excited to see she had been chosen as Queen #201. I used my new Spellbinder Die, my fav Sizzix ef, papers from SU! and Mark's Finest Papers and flowers made with dies from IO and MFT. I used punches from Martha Stewart (Crown and Branch).
Now off to figure out what fun snacks I am going to make for the football game. I just made some quick jambalaya so maybe I can get away with not making too many other things.
