Another fun sketch to play with . . .

 Hello Friends and Welcome Back!

As promised, I have a few cards to share using a sketch that caught my eye over on Splitcoast Stampers.  I haven't posted any of my projects over there for years but I do stay on as a member in hopes that one days I'll get back to sharing there again ... just doesn't seem to be enough hours in my day!  LOL (I wonder why!)  And it's a wonderful location for inspiration!

Anyways ... here's the sketch

And here are a few cards I created ...

I've once again used those 'stackable sheets' for my flowers (scroll down through my blog for more details).  I've had these put together for several weeks and I thought they would work perfectly with this sketch.  What do you think??  

The first two cards use the same Mintay designer paper for the corner element ... the only difference is the stackable floral element.  I even kept the sentiment the same as I am in need of a LOT of birthday cards for my two upcoming Craft Shows in November.

For the third card in this trio I decided to create a Thinking of You card and as you can see, I added an extra solid color strip above the angle for more definition.  In hind sight, I wish I had done that with the first two cards also ... oh well!   The stamp set I have used for my sentiments is from Simon Says Stamps. (heart is also part of the set).

At this rate, I should have plenty of cards for my shows  ... that is if I can keep making 3 or 4 cards (or more) a day!  LOL 

 Thanks so much for stopping by ... hope your weekend is fabulous!
As always . . .
