Here we go - two more cards from the 2009 TGF 12 Days of Sketches challenge, and only two more left to post! Do ya think I'll get them posted before the end of THIS month? I can only hope, but please don't bet the house on it.
Okay, first up is my card for Sketch #9 by Jessica Diedrich that features the sweet Angel Anya in soft lavender accented with my uber-favorite embellies -- pearls! Yeah, I know - she's off-center from the sketch, but that's just where she ended up...LOL! I was SO tempted to cut out the center of her halo, but that little voice said, "Susan, leave well enough alone!" So instead, I shimmered it up with some PearlEx. I wanted something up in the corner, but not a flower, so I settled on a little Nestie flourish jazzed up with some more pearls & a petite butterfly sticker. Although now I'm thinking I should have added something more.
Next up is my card for Sketch #10 by, um, I don't know, because there's no name listed - Jessica again maybe? Anywho, it's a great sketch and I featured Susie Surprise all ready to party in pink! I used the argyle EF to match her skirt, and the ribbon that DD bought for me on a whim was a great complement! Originally, I had a single smaller flower, but it looked sad and lonely, so I added more luscious layers - now it's happy! The cute dimensional brads in the flower center & on the Nestie label were a gift from my stampin Sistah Judy - thanks, hun!
So, is it just me, or does anyone else actually forget they have Nesties? I KNOW! What is wrong with me? I keep forgetting that I have those flourish AND those tag Nesties! I really think tonight's task will be to get them organized on the magnet sheets and in the binder I bought a month ago just for that purpose!
But first, I'm going to my friend Susan's SU workshop this afternoon followed by my friend Leanne's Tastefully Simple soiree! WOO-HOO! A day filled with stampin fun and food that I don't have to cook? *Pure joy, I tell ya!*
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hmm, I wonder if my Spring-A-Licious Blog Candy grew at all? *wink, wink* Hope you have a stamptacular day!
