Very vintage today...

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Hello friends and happy Wednesday. I love Wednesdays because we're halfway to the weekend and it's usually the day I can find time to create some cards with a few of my favorite sketch challenges. My first card is for the 2Sketches4You challenge. I loved this sketch by Kazan because I knew exactly which of my border punches I wanted to use. Here's her fab sketch



And my take with some yummy GCD Studios, Prima and Hero Arts stamps


Next I played along with Mojo Monday's sketch


Here's my take with some October Afternoon, Japanese Masking Tape, Making Memories button and Hero Arts sentiment


I was inspired by the 3 strips of long paper in the sketch to create a banner with the masking tape instead. I love this stuff! It has postage stamps on the whole roll. Very vintage :)




Speaking of vintage, here is a peek of more of my new masking tapes in my studio. I am going for a vintage feel in my studio and picked up a cute wire dress form and a lamp wall decor with bling!



Here's a closer look a the yummy tapes, I'm in heaven!



Since I work from home I get to spend a lot of time with my daughter and I am so thankful we get to share so much time together. I love how she peeks over the "puter" as she calls it and says "hello mommy, it's me Lily" I'm a lucky mom...

Lovely! I especially love your chandelier card-sophisticated drama! Love it!! Its so cute that your daughter calls it a puter. My youngest is 8 now and he used to call it a puter too. He also used to call himself a "tater tot" instead of toddler :) Wish they could stay little longer
