you know me...

i *NEVER* post twice in a day! but somehow miraculously i have managed to finish not one but TWO versions of laura's sketch 43 and it seemed a pity not to upload them over at 2sketches4you before the deadline!

i love this sketch: it's so beautifully open to interpretation, and yet there's enough structure to get you going, creatively! in short, it's EXACTLY what a sketch should know, the way they are every single week at 2S4Y!!! :)

i've done a "guy version"...

(patterned paper: dcwv (the dear old "rock star" stack!); chipboard letters & ghost stars: heidi swapp; foam star stickers: michaels; rub-ons: american crafts, scenic route; rhinestone flourishes (cut apart): mambi; ink: colorbox; outliner pen: copic; adhesives: tombow mono runner & 3m foam tape; other: dymo labels)

and a "girl" version...

(patterned paper: prima, basic grey, bo bunny; cardstock: core'dinations; chipboard word: ek success; leafy ribbon: may arts; epoxy heart stickers (re-colored) & rhinestones: recollections; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape; other: dymo labels, sewing machine

and now i think it is time to get offline and do something IN REAL LIFE, eh?!


  1. Great work! I love how you made a masculine and a girly one!
    Thanks for playing at 2S4Y!

  2. What fun cards! Love the sparkly gems! Thank for playing!:) Kathy

  3. Ooh the make it wish one is so cute!!! I love that one. I wanted to do that sketch and haven't yet. I'm tempted to try to get in before the cut off tonight. So tempted now!!

  4. These are both amazing! You add the best little touches and cool embellies to your cards :)

  5. His & Hers them! Isn't blogging and creating "real life"???!!!! I think cleaning and cooking are all part of the not-so-coolio-imaginary life...LOL

  6. Two beautiful cards for a great looking sketch. Love them both...
    Hugs .

  7. so fun! Love them both! Thanks for playing!

  8. These are great cards - I love that you made a masculine/feminine version of the inspiration to show that it's so adaptable!

  9. Ooh, I love the guy vs girl versions!! First off lemme say how much I admire your ability to put bling on a card and still have it totally work in a masculine way! Bravo! 2nd, Stitched ribbon leaves...swoon!
