Sketch with a twist

Marks finest papers posts multiple challenges each week, one of which is a sketch with a twist. This weeks twist was to use lace, the photo of the sketch is below. My best friend (and cousin) Lena and I were challenging each other and decided to make a card using our Cricut machines. Here's the resulting project. I hope you like it.

All of the paper I used were scraps, so I can't tell you what brand they are, the stamps are from SU! "Eat Chocolate" and the ink is SU! Pixie Pink and Green Galore.

I made the chocolate store using the "Sweet Shop" cartridge from Cricut and cut it at 2". The twine is Martha Stuart and the lace was a gift! ha ha Gotta put all of those little notions to good use!

Ok, well after a long day of cleaning up after toddlers, this girl needs some chocolate, a good book, and BED!!! I usually sign off with "have a sweet day" but for some reason, that just doesn't seem to work so well right now... so how about....
Have Sweet Dreams!

  2. Oh my goodness! That little shop is SO adorable. You did an amazing job with this simple little four-square sketch and made it SO uniquely your own! Great job, and thank you SO MUCH for playing along in this week's Sketch With a Twist Challenge. I really hope you will come back and share another card this next week and in the weeks to come. I can't wait to see what you will create and share next.

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!






I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
