Flutterby meets Back to School

In case you can't tell by the speediness of my blog entries, I'm helping DH again this week! Hopefully, I'll still be able to get around to say hello and to ooh and aah over your pretties this week!

This first card is for Flutterby Wednesday. We were to use a fairy, butterfly, or angel on our cards, and....this week, a sketch was featured. And not just any sketch...a sketch by the fabulous Mercy! For my card, I used Kraft CS, DCWV Mat Stack, Glossy Accents, and TAC True Beauty stamps. I added a bit of color with my colored pencils and LOMS. The ribbon is from Michael's. I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Easy Breezy!

Here's my card...




This next card is CAS, for sure! This is for the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew: Back to School
Belli Challenge: Use an old stamp (this was the first stamp that I ever received as a gift from a friend)

Supplies: Image by Anita's "Sugarloaf" Stamps, Ladybug by All Night Media, Palette Noir Ink, Ribbon from Michael's, The Paper Studio DP.

I have one more picture to show you. My friend, Shirley, has this amazing DH who can make just about anything you might want for your craft room! He's been making us these holders for our Stickles. This one is made from Cherry wood, as that's what he had on hand, but he can make them out pine, etc., as well.

As shown, he is selling these holders for $5 per tier plus s/h. If you have TONS of Stickles, and need it to hold more per row, he can do that, it may just cost a bit more!

If you are interested in one of these beauties, or have another item you would like quoted, email Shirley at: Shirleyhotop@hotmail.com

Have a great Tuesday!

Patti J.
