2birds4...2sketches4you

eta sunday morning: WOW! i am in the FAB FIVE and i could not be more proud!!! thank you 2S4Y, and congrats to COTW and my fellow fab fivians! (all of which are well worth the trip to go see, i promise you!!!)


i confess i was just the teeniest bit stumped for an idea when i first saw laura's sketch #54:

which is why it's such a great thing that 2S4Y shows us some brilliant design team cards as well as their lovely sketches each week; as soon as i saw laura's adorable "pear" card i realized i also needed to make an anniversary card, and this was the perfect sketch to use!


i went with some marah johnson rockstar rub-ons... (yeah, they're fairly ancient by now, but i still~♥~ those things!) ...my last scrap of prima "flirty" paper... (sob!) some american crafts' clouds... and yes, as a matter of fact, the scallops and lines of tiny circles *were* cut from the packaging of some very old "love elsie" product. (yet another sadly discontinued line that i really miss!) isn't it amazing how you can make a full-sized card--this one's 5x7"-- from just a whole bunch of little bits and bobs?!

have i mentioned lately that i LOVE paper??!?! :)

  5. Your bits & bobs cards are some of my favorites...though every Lauren-y card is wonderfully unique. You don't need to using the last scrap of a product line to make a Lauren-y card :)
