Another Monday Hop!

Gee, I've been away from my blog for a week and I missed last week's hop and I must say I'm glad to be back! I had a wonderful trip to Buffalo, but I still feel like I'm trying to catch up on all the sleep I lost! I have a couple cards to share this week - First is a CAS card based on this week's sketch at Unscripted Sketches. I just stumbled upon
this blog several week's ago and I have to admit, I just adore their sketches! Anyways, I moved the blocks of the sketch around a bit, but you get the general feel of the sketch. I used a sentiment from The Simple Things set. (That's a Bit of Burlap on the sentiment also!) and the background blocks from the Fall for You Kit. A bit of hand stitching with some twine frame this card.



Next is a card I made based on my weekly sketch for Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. Papers are by Graphic 45, the cherry was paper pieced using an electronic die cutter and the phrase is from the Simple Things set. The beautiful delicate lace was bought at Buffalo Stamps last weekend - I just love the ribbons and trims Sharon picks out!


Have a wonderful Monday and I hope your week is full of smiles! Remeber to check out the full list of hop participants on the {ippity} blog!

Both cards are so pretty, love the blocks, simple yet so fun to look at with the different patterns and the second well, it is summer and isn't that when you think about cherries, great job.
