2 Sketches 4 You


I have been loving the sketch at 2 sketches 4 you blog. I often make cards with yummy food in mind, this is no exception. This cute popsicle stamps are from Imaginisce that I bought at the Scrapfest.
I paper-pieced the popsicles with pink and orange. I have been saving this calendar page and finally I used it for the border on the brown card stock. The Hero Art stamp ( bracket in orange) also came in handy to match up with the Label 8 shape. 
The pattern paper is from American Craft. I picked up two jars of yummy buttons at the Scrapfest. They look good enough to eat, right!? I added the ribbons for the finishing touches and voila!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A "milestone" for me today is that I have 100 followers for my blog! When I started this blog last September, never in my wildest dream that I would have any followers. It's huge astronomical to me. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. To thank my 100th follower Kirsti (in UK), I will be sending her a card. I pray that the volcano eruption will calm down so my mail can reach her AND that I will be able to go to London, UK in May with my family! I'm SUPER excited about the trip...so please stop the eruption, Eyjafjallajokull !

WOW Virginia!! TWENTY ONE COMMENTS, I'd say this is a WINNER! I LOVE your darling design and color choice.....simply PERFECT. Buttons are always a FAVORITE embellie of mine and you certainly incorporated them so nicely into the design. I'm going to have to look to see if I own that Hero bracket image.....it works so NICELY with the labels eight (another item that I'd like to purchase). You really are creating some amazing cards. I can tell that you enjoy card making SO MUCH! This design is SO INSPIRING. Love, Karen xo
