life is good with you around

Hi everyone! Happy Monday – can’t believe we’re almost through September! Our new sketch challenges this month are live over at Stick It Down and I’ve popped in this morning to share my Card Team inspiration project! Love To Scrap 2 is our sponsor this month (that would be me, lol!) so come on over and play for the chance to win a Prize Pack consisting of several items such as stamps, dies, ink, ribbon, stickers, etc.! The card team is showcasing projects today on the blog and this is our super awesome card sketch this month, created by Melissa:

Sept 2019 card

I created a fun ‘love you much’ card to add to my stash. I used three coordinating My Mind’s Eye papers plus sentiments that were included in the paper pad. I love the colors!


This was a fun sketch and the card went together pretty quickly. The postage stamp die I have in my stash is a square one and I would have rather had a rectangular one to work with, so I might have to go shopping. ;) I layered all the elements on gray cardstock and added several gray sequins.


I embellished the inside with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front as well as a fussy-cut flower and sentiment from the paper pad.


One more look… really diggin’ how this turned out! I think this might wind up in my oldest granddaughter’s mailbox… ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
