DivaSC131 1 sketch and 2 greeting cards

Hi ladies!

Welcome to another sketchy weekend with the Utah Divas! I hope you will play along with us today! As always, remember that I am just one of the participating bloggers. To see more ideas, follow the link below or visit the Utah Divas International Blog for a complete list of participants.

Today's sketch was so inspiring that I made two! One I left as is, the other I flipped upside down!

First the Type A (rule follower) one. ;)

Little lambs is such a cute stamp set. I can't wait to give this card to one of the ladies in my Bible study group; she is a volunteer in the kids' ministry and I think she'll have fun using it there! The inside is decorated, too - lookie!

Doodling is just too fun. lol

Ok, now on to the second card. For this one, I flipped the sketch and made it a pocket card. Incidentally, I also made a mess of my craft table... but there's no photographic evidence of that!

The line of silver glitter is courtesy of Sticky Strip. Just run a line across your paper, pull off the red protective strip and pour on the glitter. Smoosh it in a little with your fingers and pour off the extra. I recommend both using a Powder Pal and turning off the ceiling fan. Both will help you to corral the glitter and get it back into the container. (Forgetting about the fan will lead to the mess mentioned in the previous paragraph.... yes, really...)

One last note: the sentiment on this card was stamped with Versamark and covered with Heat & Stick Powder. Once the powder was melted with a Heat Tool, I poured on Fine Cosmo Glitter to give a nice sparkly finish to the words, "You're A Gem".

Thanks for stopping by! Next, let's visit Barbara's blog. She has a great nautical card, perfect for the men on your list. (It uses a new stamp set being released in the Summer Mini catalog.) Enjoy!
