Oh My Gosh! I’m so beside myself! There are times when we all have to say a little good about ourselves. I think I’ve finally found my style!!! Wait, did I just say that!? Yayyyyy….I’m so happy with this card and I didn’t even have to over think it! That’s why I love sketch challenges! Boo-ya!
I am in LOVE with this designer series paper too! Oh My Gosh, I keep using exclamation points all over this post! It’s just a sign of how happy I am with the result of this card. I’m going to share a little secret—-I often keep the cards I make because I’m afraid they aren’t going to be appreciated!
The problem with giving a greeting card is that Hallmark (my competitor) makes it easy to spend anywhere from $4.99 to $8.99 on a greeting card. I still can’t figure out why someone would pay that!!! (yes that sentence deserves three exclamation points!)
The solution is to sign up for one of my card classes (every first and third Friday of every month) and I will teach you in under an hour!
Don’t have an hour, yet want to show someone who you care more about them then buying them an EXPENSIVE store-bought card… get a kit I tell ya! See them here.
Kits are a win-win solution. You pay only $1.50 per card and the kit comes with EVERYTHING you need to put it together and the recipient will love it! Why? Because YOU made it with your own hands! What other way to show someone how much you care about them!!!

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.

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.

I love doing card/sketch challenges, but color challenges scare me. But don’t tell anyone because I’ll deny it…LOL. These challenges take me a very long time, but I love it because they do exactly what they’re meant to do – CHALLENGE me. =)
I placed pearls on the acorn because I made a boo boo on the paper trying to place white curvy lines to give the acorn some dimension. But since there are no mistakes in card making it came out perfect don’t you think?
