Sketches {by Tamara} Card Sketch #30

This is my card for Sketches! {by Tamara} Card Sketch #30. I'm still so thrilled to be a part of the card design team! Stop by Tamara's site to take a look at her sketch and all of the other fantastic cards by the design team. If you make a card for the sketch, stop back by and let me know! I would love to take a look at your card!


I pulled a sheet of paper from my Glitter Mat Stack for my card front, and I let it inspire me on how I created this card. I really wanted to emphasize the blue and orange. The "you rock" and the three stars are stamps from Love, Elsie Roxie. The ribbon is American Crafts. This is a simple card, but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I struggle with masculine cards most of the time, and when I was done with this one, I realized that it would be great for anyone.

My girls are home from school today, because it's parent/teacher conferences at school. My girls are doing very well in school, so we don't need to go see any teachers. We'll be relaxing and hanging out. Maybe we'll craft a little! Maybe I'll have some guest designers featured on my blog tomorrow or on Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

I just visited Lisa Bearnson's blog. Take a look at her most recent post. She put out a plea for stickers for a young man that she met. My girls and I just totally cleared out our PSB (Paper Sticker Binder) and we're going to send A LOT of stickers to Brian today. We hardly ever use stickers anymore, so we're thrilled to send them all to him! We're off to the post office!
