sweet & scalloppy

recently, i fell in love with this fabulous design by lisette gibbons when it was the "bonus sketch" at 2 sketches 4 you. so naturally, as a sign of my devotion, i downloaded it immediately, printed it out...and let it sit on my desk under a pile of junk for a fortnight. :)

and then the other night i found it again and made this:

(patterned paper: crafty secrets, sandylion; journaling card: making memories; florals: heidi swapp & amanda blue; chipboard letters: target $-spot; cardstock sticker: memories complete; rhinestone frame: heidi swapp; ribbon: michaels; rub-on stitches: doodlebug; ink: colorbox; pen: zigwriter)

i am trying to get ahead on birthdays & anniversarys for the rest of the year, so that i can embark on holiday cards at some point. i am debating whether to mass-produce the latter or make them all different...probably i will do a bit of both. seeing as how it's officially NOVEMBER it is time to get serious!


  1. Definitely Sweet & Scalloppy!!!

  2. This is lovely and sweet...perhaps the sweet girl recipient is an adorable niece???

    I try to work ahead on b-day cards too. When I create a card I go through my birthday card folder and place it in the month-pocket for the person I think the card suits best. This has worked well for the past two years, but somehow I have 3 friends & relatives with b-days this month and I have yet to make their cards :)

  3. that is sweet...and i love anything with scallops...too cute:) and it's PINK too!!! you can't beat that with a stick!!!

  4. Love the use of "girl"... gives it a little attitude if you ask me! =)

  5. Cute card. I am also at a loss about what to do about Christmas cards. Can't wait to see yours.

    Great card!!

  6. Gorgeous!!!!! Love it :)
    I think you'll probably end up making most of your Christmas cards individual in some way...you won't be able to help yourself...LOL. Can't wait to see what you'll come up with.
