wish - Cardabilities 58

Happy Sunday - it's just after midnight, and I wanted to sneak one more in before I go to bed.  :)

I fell in love with this sketch from Cardabilities.  I just love "collage-like" sketches and I love tags - so perfect! :)

DP's from Simple Stories and Crate Paper.  Diecuts, stamp, cardstock, buttons and twine from PTI, ribbon flower from Maya Road,  misc. paper doily, seam binding ribbon, decorative pins, chipboard heart and flowers.

Thanks for taking a peek - off to post my card and to bed!  Have a great day - Cathy xx :)

peace, love & flowers - VLVJULY2012 - Sketch 2

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a wonderful day and if the weather is anything like it is here by you - I hope you have kept cool! :)

This card was created based off of this week's sketch at VLV.  I haven't always done my best when it has come to the monthly sketches, but I am going to certainly give it a try! :)

DP's from Cosmo Cricket, stamps, ink, cardstock, buttons and twine from PTI, misc. seam binding ribbon and decorative pins.

Thanks for taking a peek - enjoy your evening! Cathy xx :)

miss you - MFTWSC79

TGIF and good morning!!  If you are experiencing the extreme heat as we are here in Chicago, I hope you are keeping cool.
We are due to see temperatures over 100 degrees today!  It is!!

This card was created based off of MFT.  I recently made a big purchase at MFT and this was one of the items that I have been
itching to use.  I remember these pinwheels from my childhood - we used to put them on our handle bars on our bikes and ride real fast just to see them spin! :)

DP's from MME, cardstock, buttons, twine, stamp and ribbon from PTI, diecut from MFT.

Thanks for taking a peek - I have some fun plans for today.  I am going to meet my daughter Courtney for lunch and a tour of the Crime Lab where she is a Forensic Chemist.  I'm really looking forward to it - I asked her if I could bring a camera and her reply....."Mother!"  Have a great weekend - Cathy xx :)

Paper Doll - SSSC162

Good morning - I hope everyone had a fun-filled 4th of July!  We spent the day at my Sister's home with the entire family - swimming, eating and having a great time.  It was another record setting day in Chicago with the heat - 102 degrees, but the pool was a life saver. :)

This card was created based off of this week's sketch at SSSC - thank you Karen!  I used another one of my favorite PI stamps from MFT - Paper Dolls.  I  really shouldn't say she is my favorite - because they all are! :)

Lucky me...I have the rest of the week off.  I plan on doing some creating while I have the laundry going!  Well, off to post my card - have a wonderful day!  Cathy xx :)

Spill the Beans - DS58 and CFC58

Good morning and Happy Sunday!  No big plans here today - just need to run out to the store and put together dinner.  We
certainly will not be cooking in the house today - another hot
and humid day - bque it is! :)

This card was created based off of this week's sketch at DS
and CFC's challenge - circles.  I love this sketch - between the two challenges - I certainly stepped out of my comfort zone.

DP's Sassfraslass, cardstock and ink PTI, cup and cozy die and stamp as well as the sentiment die  from Lil' Inker Designs (love it!), Baker's Twine
from The Twinery, misc. ribbon and button.

Thanks for taking a peek - off to post my card and make a dash for the grocery store.  Have a super day!  Cathy xx :)
