Charming


You might remember this post where I lamented on about the fact that I was different from the other SFYTT girls in my certainty that I was the only one of the bunch in a state of nestie-lessness! As I type, I remain in a state of nestie-lessness, and because this week's sketch called for an oval, of which I own one ancient Fiskars oval template and two SU! oval punches, I made up my mind to make my card on a smaller scale that would allow me to use the larger of my two SU! oval punches. Guess what?! I think I succeeded in doing so because I really like my card! (FYI: nestie-less refers to the state of being without Nestabilities in said ownership!).

I'm also on the short list of St. Patrick's Day stamps, so I decided to try my hand at a heart-punched shamrock. Linen thread makes for a curvy stem as well as the lower horizontal strip on today's sketch. I thought the stitches were a fun extension of the stitches in the K&Co. Margo designer paper. And finally, if you look at the detail shot of the shamrock and button, you''ll see little flecks of gold in the button--how perfect for a St. Patty's Day card, huh?! Honestly, I didn't plan that, but it sure worked out nicely. Ü



Speaking of nice, let's scoot on over the Jen's blog to see what she and March guest designer, Jenn have come up with using the sketch, and then on to the rest of the girls: Amy Sheffer, Carole Burrage, Kelly Lunceford and Susan Liles.

Have a great weekend all and an early wish for a fun and festive St. Patrick's Day on Tuesday!
