The sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches (#33) had me scratching my head. What photo to use, then what color scheme to go with? Decisions, decisions. So, digging thru my photos, came across this one from last year, a family day trip to this wonderful outdoor art museum. Grounds for Sculpture, Trenton NJ. Ever been there? Don't wait, run there!! What a fabulous day! Over 260 pieces of art scattered throughout the grounds- some you can touch (like me sitting on this metal abstract) others, they tell you to look with your EYES only. Even my fussy girls loved being there!
deets: all cardstock CTMH, mm rubons, joann metal tags (to go with the metal art I am on), leaves misc (to remember the outdoors) and the paper clip (officemax) as a reminder of the abstract beauty.

Went away for the night with a girlfriend and was on a creative roll! One of my lovely daughters asked me to make her teacher some cards for a going away present. The teacher is a student teacher and her last day is December 4th. So with papers, stamps, and other fun stuff that came along for the ride, I was able to make 6 of these cute cards! Kris gave me some older Anna Griffin dimensional stickers- these very girly ones, and I was able to use all but 2 of them on these cards. The papers I coordinated with them are from MM, the Sabrina line. And don'tcha love the stamps?! They are from CTMH "be yourself" and they worked perfectly! DD was very happy with the cards and I have 3 extras I am giving to my hairdresser today for a small token of appreciation. And a big shout out goes to Cute Card Thursday for the Teen Terror challenge! These would be perfect for any teen!

Christmas is a few weeks away and I am busy making cards for my friends and family. What is surprising to me, is the amount of winter/holiday themed paper that I have. So, in my quest to purge, I found a few sheets of this beautiful Reminisce paper that will make a few wonderfully easy cards. The sentiment is actual vellum that I cut, attached with vellum adhesive (love this tombow tape!) and added some mini pearls by basic grey. Punched a few snowflakes with MS punch, there ya go!

I just love how this card turned out! These papers are from Flair and shabby princess- old stash. Unscripted Sketch #29 was a wonderful starting point on this card. I actually flipped the sketch because....adding the pearls around the edge of the sentiment, I had a twisty in the length that ended up being the last 2 pearls, but had to be covered up. They would not stay in the circle! The way the sentiment ended up, I needed to add something to the left side of the card, not the right. So, flipping came in handy and made the elements come together.
deets: vineyard berry grosgrain- close to my heart, basic grey green 1/2 pearls, creative memories sticker present, MS lace doily punch, pearls- mikes, the sentiment is vellum from Flair, cut and adhered to a cirlce using vellum tape (really works well!)
