Sketches {by Tamara} Card Sketch #34

It's Thursday, so that means Tamara has posted a new card sketch. This is my card for Card Sketch #34 for Sketches! {by Tamara}. If you create a card using Tamara's sketch as inspiration, let me know. I would love to take a look at it!


I used Basic Grey Lucky papers. I also used goodies that I received from Marlou! She sent me both the ribbon and the Jolee's yellow flowers that are used on the top and bottom panels of my card. The center panel has a flower cluster that I detail cut from one of the sheets of Lucky paper. I added some rhinestones to the flower centers. The alphabet stickers are also Basic Grey Lucky. I designed this card to fit in a business size envelope. This card is approximately 4" wide x 9" tall. I love the narrow and tall design.

Thanks for stopping by!

I did check out the CC blog last night..I have only done a few things with that kit so far...it really needs to be loved up. As for moving my dh is just finishing up flight school in the Navy and they give you your order the day you wing (march 20th) and you can have as little as 4 day to move to our next duty station or a few weeks. I think we are hoping for Virginia, or Jacksonville florida...that would only be a 6 hour move...Its really up to the navy where we move he has been in for about 10 years now so I'm used to this >"< but I'm not going to lie it is very stressful lol
Some people I know think I'm crazy because of my love for paper, stamps etc..they just don't get it lol

Hi Carol - love that card. I wanted to answer your question about the international card swap.

The way the swap works - you will make the same card for the number of people who sign up. So if 7 sign up - you make 7 cards. The swap participant also make that number of cards. Everyone sends them to me and then I swap them and return 7 completely different cards to you. One from each participant. It is a lot of fun!
