2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

Saturday, September 12, 2009

It's been a busy week with school starting up again and getting back into the old routine. I've really missed the blogs and challenges I frequent. Moving isn't easy and getting your things settled in a way you feel comfortable is certainly time consuming. More so than I thought before we moved but I am almost finished with unpacking and organizing this house. I can finally get a cleaning routine down too. I am hoping to be back to my old paper crafting routines as well. I did find time last night while organizing my daughter's room and my new scrap space to create a card based on Laura's sketch this week at 2S4Y. Here's Laura's fab sketch



Here's my take on the challenge

I used patterned paper from K & CO. as well as some stickers. May Arts ribbon from the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Store and a Prima flower. I stamped the word F O R E V E R on the inside and gave this card to my hubby for all his hard work. I {heart} him so much for being such a great husband and father.

Now for a few peeks at my daughter's room and my scrap space

This is her side of the room

And my side...a work in progress but we are getting there. My SIL found me a card table for my scrap space. I had a small half table that just wasn't enough space. I'm not happy about the table coming out so far from the closet but until I can afford to get what I have in mind it will work!
I hope you are having a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!!

I love your creation! It is difficult to make cards for men that aren't too soppy, but yours is spot on! Thx for sharing!
