{ 2 Sketches 4 You, CardPatterns #5, Project 365 - week 10 }

This week I am participating in a new challenge called Use It! My dear friend, Rae Barthel, is posting a challenge every Monday to use our growing stash.

Challenge: ♦Dig through your stash and use one of your FAVORITE papers♦ ♦use something (anything) that you have NEVER used before♦ ♦use some ribbon♦ ♦use a button♦

I used Laura's sketch #21 to make this card. My favorite paper, from my stash, is American Crafts. I bought it at a convention last summer. It has not been touched. It is so pretty just to look at. Ribbon is old, too, I don't even know who makes it. The flower came from another sheet of American Crafts paper that I had in my stash. I used a pencil to lightly draw the flower and I erased any visible lines after I cut it out. I stamped the center of my flower with a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink that I won couple of weeks ago in a blog hop, never been used. The leaves stamp is from Close To My Heart. A sweet friend, Maria, sent them to me, along with some other awesome goodies. If you want to use up some of your stash pile then go check out Rae's Use It!

This card is for CardPatterns: Sketch #5. I used Graphic 45 patterned paper, Jenni Bowlin jewels and chip buttons that I turned over and stamped.

Project 365 - week 10.

3.2 - Alex trying to escape.

3.3 - Alex playing in his pajamas. 3.4 - we finally opened a savings account for Alex. 3.5 - Alex is holding his own cup (no lid) with a straw to drink. This started today. 3.6 - Alex is having his afternoon snack. No bottle. He did fine. 3.7 - today he wanted to drink out of the cup, no straw. He did awesome. Now he wants to drink out of everything. 3.8 - daddy and Alex went for a walk. It was 83 degrees.

  8. Your cards are so pretty...I don't see how you haven't used that AC paper before...it's so elegant. I also like how you used the stamp & tucked it behind on the flower. Off to check out Rae's challenge.
