Another sketch from the sketch girls! This month's sketch is sponsored by SassyStudioDesigns. They have fabulous digi images like the one I used in my card below. The winner of this month's sketch will get to select 4 digi images from the site! Fabulous! I have never used a digi image before, but I think my card turned out really well!
So go on over to the Sketch Girl blog and post your card!

I made these notebooks for the girls that I work with as a Valentine's day present. I felt that the quote was a very good reminder to those single gals that life is not all about waiting for your handsome prince. The stamp is from Paper Makeup Stamps. I love their quote stamps and their monsters. These notebook covers were easy to make and I am hoping that the girls will like them! The PP is really old Chatterbox (using the stash!), some bitty dot paper from PTI, and some berry sorbet PTI twill and buttons.

Ahhhh. I crafted for over 12 hours on Saturday. Thanks to my mom who came and helped my husband watch my son. I had so much fun with Tiffany (and even more fun watching her drool over my sewing machine :)
We went to Craft Fancy in Arlington Heights, it was a cool store with some off beat products. I got a couple stamps sets I am going to be excited about making cards with.
But I digress. I needed to make a man card. For my DH. Because he doesn't get mad at me when I tell him that I will be crafting from 9 am Saturday to 1 am Sunday and even makes me and Tiffany smoothies and homemade pizza. (delicious)
It needed to not have pink, or ribbon. But I snuck in some stiching. So I made this card. And I finished the inside too. Go me. I think he will like it.

Today's cards feature "flair", you know, like the buttons one might wear on a jean jacket. Only these are better because they have and adhesive back. Sometimes it's hard to figure out how to use these suckers. I got three sheets of them when I got the rubons from peachy cheap. And I made the card above. I had gotten the embossed heart background folder on clearance somewhere last May, glad I could bust it out. A little corner rounding and a nice bow with a PTI sentiment. The photo stinks, but I am not in a place to retake it. So I gave a bonus card.
This is a smaller card and was FAST to put together. I grabbed a scrap of Valentine paper from three years ago (stored with my other Valentine specific scrap paper- I know it's anal, but hey it works for me!) and added the foam letters from American Crafts, and the heart flair. The ribbon was an after thought because it looks naked without it.
