2S4U--Laura's Sketch #24

Here is my take on Laura's sketch this one to work with. The pic is not so great...we haven't seen sunshine here for a while now, and frankly, my mood is beginning to reflect the weather...cold and gloomy! Any how...complaining aside, I used Bazill CS, The Paper Co PP, Kaiser and Dollar store gems, K&Co flowers, Cricut Storybook for the flourishes, and unknown chipboard sentiment tag.
This one I did just for fun...I know its kind of "fallish", but these tend to be my favorite colors, so I went with it. Tilda is colored with Prismas and Gamsol. I used the sketch from Card Patterns this week to make the card, I'm not especially happy with the results so I won't submit it. Fun to try anyhow.
And a card using a couple of new Cricut Cartridges I bought this week...on sale at Michaels for $49.99 each (reg $119.99). A bargain I just couldn't pass up....especially since they are two I have really wanted on my shelf. The card shape is using the Wild Cards Cartridge, and the sentiment using the Lyrical Letters Cartridge (this one is sooooo awesome!).

Well, I'm off to do some housecleaning, more laundry (The most never-ending and thankless job on the entire planet I am sure!), and if I am lucky, I can do some tidying in my craft room--it is an absolute disaster!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by. Shirley.

Three stunning creations Shirley!Love the flourish and the colours of the first one and the Tilda card is brilliant-I love everything about it!You really picked up a good bargain in the cricut cart-the card you've made with it is awesome-the lettering is really cool !
Hope the sun comes out soon-its grey ,wet and miserable here too-today in my classroom at the white-board I found myself dreaming of walking Hudson in the fields near my house-wishful thinking!!
I hope you get the little parcel I sent you soon-discovered that my husband had it in the car for a few days (he works in the city so I thought it'd be easier if he posted it....?!)
Hope you win that battle with the laundry :-))

Hope the sun will be out soon. It was gorgeous here today. More tomorrow but I think it'll be gloomy again soon after. Sad!
