ABC ~ Thank You


Good morning!!  I have recently been having a little crush with some of My Favourite Things dies and stamps :)  I subscribe to their newsletter and have started playing along with their weekly sketches on SCS in hopes of winning some MFT dollars for my growing die wishlist!!  LOL  Today I’m sharing my card using this last week’s sketch.  Whenever I see a banner, I try to think of some letters or numbers that would go with the card.  Since I wanted to use the MFT You Rule stamp set, I thought A-B-C were the perfect letters to put on the banner :)  I finally got the October Afternoon Schoolhouse paper…I don’t know why I didn’t get it sooner…I just love it and being a teacher, I have a lot of occasions to use it!


I also wanted to show you my card using the sketch from a few weeks ago…I posted it on SCS, but not here on the blog.  It was even featured this week in the MFT newsletter in the Sketch #18 Wrap Up :) The corrugated star was made with my star punch and a Starbucks sleeve!! LOL  I was patiently waiting for my Jillibean corrugated shapes and decided to make my own!! I also have a sheet of white corrugated paper from WAAAYYYY back (so glad I kept it! lol).  I find punches work better than dies as the Cuttlebug squishes everything into a pancake and my crimper doesn’t seem to give a nice deep indentation…maybe I need a new one?  Anyways, thanks for visiting :)  Have a wonderful hump day!!

Maureen, love your cards. I like how you put eyelets in the banner die cuts, I'll have to try that! Those papers are so nice! Like your second card too! I just made a card with that sketch last night.

Ahhhh, total cuteness. I like not coloring in the teacher image, sometimes coloring can be daunting!

AND WHERE can I get me a cuppa that big? I need it this morning! Hugs,
