This is a card for Kazan’s sketch #25 at 2S4Y and the minute I saw her card for the sketch, I knew I wanted to attempt a teen guy card for a friends son’s upcoming birthday.
The paper and ribbon are from Stemma. They are a few years old, but still give me that funky feel whenever I pull them out. The bottle cap…remember those??? I don’t know who made this one, but I still have a container of them and was so happy to find one that matched the colors of the card. And it felt quite therapeutic to whack at it with my rubber mallet on the basement floor!! The metal star is from a Christmas tag set I’ve had for a few years, the twine is from Karen Foster, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, and the ‘cool’ letters and stars are from Me and My Big Ideas. I sanded and distressed the heck out of this card, and there it is-my teen guy card! Hope the teen guy I made it for likes it.
Since I had the paper out, I made another card…back to my girly roots! To the Stemma paper, I added a QuicKutz scallop border, Prima flower, K&Co. bling and sentiment-again from the bottom of the drawer.Thank you for stopping by…what’s at the bottom of your drawers??????

This card is based on a sketch from Mojo Monday. Another friend I met on line designs for them-Sarah. I've always been a big fan of her cards and have finally made it over there to do one of the sketches.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye-Bohemia, butterfly is a die cut from Sizzix, rub on is from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you've had a wonderful weekend.

I like the sentiment on the front but I'd love some help with how to carry it through to the inside.
A Mother is...? My first thought was...A Mother is a Blessing.

The first one is for Laura's sketch 24 at 2S4Y.
Here I used Cosmo Cricket paper (love it!!) which I bought last week in Edmonton, Scenic Route journaling die cut, K&Co. flower, Offray ribbon, Anna Griffin stamp and Cuttlebug script embossing folder.
This one is for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. The challenge is to use 2 embossing folders and make the card with a nature theme. I used the Tiny Bubbles and Script folders. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket again, cardstock is from Bazzill, sentiment is from One Heart, One Mind and I used it on vellum, flower is from K&Co. For the stem of the flower I used trim that I just got in Edmonton as well, but I have no idea who makes it. I used Fiskars treading water punch to finish off the bottom edge.
