Heather's Oz-some Sketch 49

For a while now I've been wanting to participate in Heather's sketch challenges but time never seems to let me do it fast enough... I finally got one done though and I love the way it turned out.. simple but beautiful! Thanks for always inspiring me Heather!

I used Bazzill Bling paper that I had on hand for the cardbase. Embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. Used papers from Catelynne Fly with It Paper collection from TAC. I also used the Thank U stamp set from the Fall Supplement for the sentiment. I inked all the edges with Burnt Umber Palette ink and added a little brown polka dot ribbon I also had on hand... Hope you like it!

Have a great weekend!

Wee ones baby cards

I hope you are enjoying the crisp fall weather. Here in Texas it is just barely getting cool at night and it is a wonderful break for the usual heat of the day! I've been busy making thank you cards for my cousin, who is having a baby boy very soon. I used the wee one set and a sentiment from one of last years gift with purchase stamps. I also used some retired and current pages from the designer paper collections from TAC. We have four other collections that are just like this but in different colors. You can check them out here if you like the patterns! They are very versatile and I seem to be using them a lot lately. I made 10 cards for her using different colors- blue as shown here, green, yellow and one brown to round it out. I added a little stickles, flower and ribbon to embellish. I think they are adorable! You can find the tutorial for the onsie card here. It's super easy to make and as you can see really adorable!

Have a great weekend everyone!
