Blackberry & Honey Birthday


Wow look at the curves on this sweet little box! I wasn’t going to get it when I saw it in the Holiday Catalog, but when my up-line gave me a shopping spree for making Sr. Supervisor it was the first thing on my list.


Card sketch was brought to you by Sketch Saturday: Week 327


Just in case anyone is wondering what’s in the Curvy Box… There was a crispy twenty dollar bill along with that I gave to my nephew for his birthday.  My heart broke into pieces when I saw him tear the tabs off to open it… LOL… then again, he turned eight.


I almost forgot to mention that I used the Spiral Board Punch for the edges on the Blackberry Bliss card stock and the Star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch.

The Bestest Friend Sketch Challenge

Sketch Challenge

How often have you heard people say, "one can count true friends on one hand?"  Just as you read it, you thought of them right?  I know I did the first time I saw the Label Love stamp set.

Can one truly have just one best friend?  Or are the one-hand count friends simply the best?  This card floods my heart with memories of my childhood best friend, Gabriela Gomez, and you can read about her here.

PPPA 185To make this card, I used the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge 185.  For 2014, I'm going to try my hardest to create a card for each challenge in hopes of receiving the Paper Artist Pick honor.  You can see the cards that won that honor in 2013 here.

Sketch Challenge

The Modern Mosaic embossing folder is a perfect match on the Winter Frost designer series paper and the pop of Calypso Coral cardstock adds a sweet almost honeydew taste of color… don't ya think?   I've been in an embossing mood lately, so I embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder.
