2 Sketches 4 You-Laura's Sketch 64


Here is my card I created for 2 Sketches 4 You- sketch challenge.

For this challenge, I created a card using Sassafrass' Indie Girl line.  I love all the blue and green soft floral tones.  With the papers, I added an Itty Bitty image from Unity Stamp Co.-"What's Shakin'".  The little salt and pepper shakers have small hearts on them, so I thought the tiny printed heart design form Indie Girl would be the perfect addition.

I pleated the paper and ran in through my sewing machine to make it look like real ribbon. The sentiment was embossed with Red ZING embossing powder. A bit of coloring with my Copic markers and distress ink and I am finished.

Hope you enjoy and join in on the sketch challenge this week.

A Little Halloween Love

I had the chance to create a little something special for my co-workers this weekend. Last weekend, I spent a time creating little felt flowers, so I added a pin back to them for a little gift to give.

The tea bag holder/treat holder was something I saw over on Beate's blog Fresh and Fun.  You can find out how to make your own here.

I used a digi image from The Greeting Farm and sized it to fit the holder.  I then colored the image, cut it out with a Nestabilities die and added to the candy container.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy Fall!


Yep, I am back after what some might say...A SUPER LONG BREAK!  I am finally finding some time to create and more importantly post my creations.

Today's card features a digi image from Pink Cat Studio.  A little love from our friends Billy and Lily.
This image reminds me of my two little leaf pile jumpers.

Hoping you are enjoying or enjoyed the colors in your area.  Until next time.  Enjoy!
