Circles Galore!

Hello Friends,
     Hope this finds you all well on this Thursday afternoon.  Today I wanted to show you my take on another papercrafter's card.  I found the inspiration for my make and take card at Linda Higgin's blog, HERE.  My three cards show a little of my progression to the card I will use for my event.  Here is my first card.  It is a very close CASE ( Copy and Share Everything) of Linda's card. I changed my ribbon and my sentiment. 

The second card:
I added two layers of colored cardstock for the base of this card, changed the paper choices and the color of my sentiment to coordinate.  It is still the same sketch format.

The third card:

 This is my choice for the make and take.  Notice how I turned the sketch to a landscape format, but it still follows the sketch.

So, if you find a card design online that you love, you can always tweak it a little here an a little there to give it your own personal flair.  
Enjoy and Happy Stamping!

Stamping Supplies Include:
Perfectly Penned and  Delightful Dozen stamp sets
Sycamore Street Designer paper (sale-a-bration free item)
various SU cardstock colors

I Think I Need A Cupcake

Hello Creative Ladies,
Since this is the eve of some major plumbing work we are doing on our home, and 2 days before a good friend's 30th birthday, I decided to create a quick and easy card for both events.  :)  As you can imagine my nerves are a bit frazzled so I thought the idea of keeping calm was a pretty good one.  As for eating the cupcake?  Well, that was a great one!  I hope you enjoy the card and get some fun stamping time this upcoming weekend.
