Super Sketchy Sunday!

Day 57 at 365 Cards was to use this sketch. I got up at 5am today, so I made two cards before daylight!! I actually had to stop myself today, this sketch was very inspiring. I must do housework! Boo-hoo!! But if I get it all done, who knows, I might make a few more cards using this sketch!! Happy Sunday to you all!!


The sunflower card was made using Bo Bunny papers that I have had for some time. An LSS was closing and I bought a ton of paper from them. It will probably take me 20 years to use it all!! The brads I received from sb.com as a gift for an order I placed with them. They are sugar coated. Really pretty! I was in a sewing mood today, I love sewing on cards but never remember to do it. I organized my scraproom yesterday and my machine is very easy to get to now.
My "hi" card was made using paper from Chatter Box. This was also purchased from the LSS that was closing. The inside of the card does match the outside. The outside pic was taken in direct sun and it changed colors on me. This card looks like the top photo, really rich brown. I also used Prima flowers, brad and bling from my stash. The corners on the inside were done with a Marvy corner punch. I also did a little sewing on this one too!
