Flower Basket

I created this card for a friend. I started by creating the hand woven basket. I simply cut out the shape of the basket from brown cardstock, cut evenly spaces vertical lines and weaved in small strips of the same brown cardstock.  I adhered the basket with dimensional adhesive to give it a bit of dimension and added the punched flowers and greenery.  Hopefully, it went through snail mail without any issues.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

May Birthday Card

May is a busy month for birthdays among my family and friends, so I've put together another birthday card. This is one of those cards that turned out very differently from what I initially had in mind, but I still like the end result. I began by using the May sketch from The Sketch File. The sketch was created by Kathy. She creates a monthly sketch and we each create cards to share on a weekly basis. We always look forward to seeing what other crafters create with the sketch, so we hope you will feel inspired and post a creation or two.

May Sketch Inspiration

Here is a very, very late post. I had fully intended on posting this card on Tuesday, but here we are on Saturday! I just can't get ahead of things this week. Anyway, this card was created based on our current sketch at The Sketch File. Kathy has created a few versions of the sketch and we hope the cards we've been creating and the sketch itself will inspire you be be creative.  You can pop on over to The Sketch File to see what Kathy has created and post your creation there.

May Sketch File

Here is a card I've put together that was inspired by our current sketch at The Sketch File. It's another one of those cards where I gathered bits and pieces of leftover cardstock and patterned paper and put them to good use.   The sketch is fun to work with so I hope you will take the time to create a project with it and post it with us....I'm off to a very busy day at work...ugh!

May Sketch

I am so far behind already and the month has just begun! My only excuse is long hours at work and no energy at the end of the day. So, I figured I'd post the May sketch for The Sketch File  this morning before I head out to work. 

I have a lot of birthdays for friends and family to celebrate in the next month so, I've created a birthday card based on the May Sketch.  Hope you feel inspired and will join us at The Sketch File .
