Reader Tag

I made two cards with Beate's sketch challenge that she posted last Friday. The first one uses my brand new PaperTrey Butterfly Kisses set and some scraps I had laying on my desk.

I made the curvy lines with my Creative Memories Cutting System and the curvy template. I stamped the butterfly body in Regal Rose and then stamped the sunburst design over the top in Rose Red and then overstamped with the Tsukineko Glue Pad and covered in Dazzling Diamonds. Next I doodled dots around the edges and trimmed. I used the Giga Scalloped punch and the Mega regular circle punch. The Birthday Wishes is rearranged and embossed in black. The brown circle looked a little plain so I added some random dots with my Fruit Punch stickles for some extra flair. The bottom section is Rose Red and stamped tone on tone with the paisleys from the Butterfly Kisses set. I believe the patterned paper is from Imaginisce.


The second card I made with this sketch uses the Stampin' Up Doodle That set and a sentiment from the PaperTrey Butterfly Kisses set. The Real Red cardstock is stamped with Paisley in Real Red and the So Saffron cardstock is stamped with the dots from Polka Dots & Paisley in So Saffron. I used my Creative Memories circle cutting system for the inner circles and a Mega scalloped circle punch in Bashful Blue for the scalloped circle. The heart is colored in Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol and Bashful Blue and Real Red markers. I added a little X-mas Red Stickles and a gold edged May Arts ribbon for a touch of elegance.



Last week Cindy tagged me with another game of blogger's tag. I'm supposed to tell 7 things you may not know about me so here goes...


1. I'm a PK (Preacher's Kid). My dad was a Nazarene pastor when I was a kid and is now pastor of a small non-denominational church.
2. I changed my college major several times... General Studies, English Literature, Psychology, Social Work, Religion, Accounting and finally after all those U turns, the path that would let me graduate the quickest... Business Administration.
3. I drive a sporty little Hyundai Tiburon.
4. I'm deathly allergic to shellfish.
5. I'm an administrator for Splitcoastbloggers.
6. I finally paid off my final school loan this Spring (almost 10 years after I graduated). Yay!
7. I've always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty, but have never made it to New York.


So I'm going to change this up a little bit and make it into Reader Tag. If you want to play, just leave a comment with 7 things I may not know about you by Tuesday at 10pm Mountain Time and I will draw a winner for some Blog Candy. The winner will be announced Wednesday morning and will receive a sampling of some very fun May Arts ribbons and this post it note holder made by yours truly. :)
