Well here it is Thursday - yesterday went back to the doctor and he's cleared me to go back to work Monday (if I felt like it as he said). The car riding seems to be the biggest problem - when I'm at home I can keep from leaning back on things but there's no choice in the car. SO today I made cards! First I made this card from some of the awesome Core'dinations papers I saw the little flower arrangement on a flower pattern at CK and just instantly knew it would be perfect with the core'dinations papers. Can I say once again how much I love this cardstock! It's just so versatile and dresses up everything I use it on. I used several different cuttlebug embossing folders and edges for this one. I also did some sketches as you can see as you scroll down.

First I found some more Card sketch sites - this one is from My Sketch World. I dug into some of my many many papers from My Mind's Eye for this one. Also wanted to add just a little more color to my flower so colored with some of my new Copic markers - liked the results.
Then I jumped on over to the Cardvarks page and found three sketches!!! WOWSERS and they were all cool. So for a chance with nothing "due" I just played with my stash making these cards.
This is Sketch #1. For it I pulled out some of what I think are some of the cutest papers I've seen in a long time - from Imaginisce. And of course played with my new loopy punch from Martha Stewart.

For Sketch #2 I pulled out some Crate Paper I'ld been hoarding. Have to give total credit for this one to the inspiration I found by a card done by one of the Design Team - Jenn B - her card gave me the umph to use this new Hero Arts stamp I bought the other day - and then of course more of the new Copic markers I got! And I don't know where I got this neat ribbon - but it's a strip of leather with stitching which was perfect with these papers!

Then finally Sketch #3. For this I pulled out this shiney bright Best Creations paper I got the other day that just spells girly loud to me. Used some of my favorite letter stickers from Webster's and Making Memories and once again my loopy Martha Stewart punch. Thanks Cardvarks for all the inspiration!
