This is our sketch challenge this week at ISC. I changed it up a bit this week and flipped it on it's side. The tag is not my creation........I got it from someone at some point in time, maybe an RAK or a swap??? The artist put her initials on it, but unfortunately that didn't help me. Since the tag looked a bit vintage to me, I decided to go vintage with the reast of it. I distressed the edges of the card with the distressing tool from SU. I also inked th edges because they looked to plain.
Well, I think that's it. As always, if you have any questions for me.......just ask and I'll try and get back with you. TFL!

This Week's Challenge at ISC

Katherine is our challenge hostess this week at ISC. She challenged us to make a card with the faux silk technique. I've done this technique before, but it's been awile. I had alot of fun doing this card, I just wish the photo would've picked up the texture more. Oh well!! TFL!

Swap Time

I'm not much of a swapper, but I was very interested in this one. It is a swap for extra postage. One would include this with her swap with her return postage inside. I usually just toss the stamps in myself. What a cute little idea.

The pansy is actually the "Butterfly" punch from Stampin' Up. I used the aqua painter and ink refills for the coloring. The actual envelope is from the "Two Tags" die cut from Stampin' Up. TFL!

This Week's Challenge at ISC

Faith is our hostess for our weekly challenge at ISC this week. She asked us to make a masculine card. I already had both of my Father's Day cards prepared, so this one will have to be for a birthday or something.

I have such trouble making masculine cards because.......................I.................LOVE.............BLING!!!!

I think the embossing really pops due to the ink I sponged on it. The stamp set is "Lovely As A Tree" from Stampin' Up. TFL!

ISC Weekly Sketch Challenge

We now have weekly sketch challenges at ISC!! Robin has been working her hiney off to get some sketches together and some sponsors for prizes. This is our very first week and boy was I inspired!!!
I stuck to the sketch as much as I possibly could. I am very pleased with the results. The three pairs of flip flops are actually in beer bottle caps (Oberon to be exact......yummy!). The stamp set is "Just Beachy" from Stampin' Up (with exception of the word SUMMER). The ribbon was sent to me by my dear friend Lisa, and the gold fish charm was sent to me by Robin herself. The bling was sent to me by my BFF Vicky.
If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment, and thanks for stopping by!!
