Lots of projects with some Nikki Sivils

This week the DT over at Nikki Sivils is hosting a card challenge. It's so fun to see all the different cards, and there's so much inspiration too! Here are 2 I created that should be posted later in the week.

"Lucky Me"

For this card I used "Cherry strips 4U" and the stamp set from the My Sweet Cherry Pie line, and "Victoria's Lane" from Victoria's Street, and some red ric rac.

"Party" (invitation)


I thought I'd make a cute little party invitation for this one. To make the ice cream cone, I used a Bazzill CS scalloped circle cut in half, then holded in half. I covered it with "Cherry Brownie" on the front and inside too. Then cut a circle from "Victoria's House" to be a minty scoop of ice cream. I cut a small circle out of "Cherry blast" for the cherry, and gave it texture with the cordurory brad. All stamps are from the My Sweet Cherry Pie set.

If you've got some of Nikki's new papers and/or stamps on hand, we'd love to see a card from you too! Just add a link in any of this week's card posts over on Nikki's blog.

And speaking of Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, I used her "Henry's Brilliance" line for this week's 52sketches sketch.

Here's sketch #33:

And my take was to scap an OLD photo of Josh, "Smarty Pants"

So there you have it. The Nikki Sivils DT card challenge going on right now, and this week's 52 sketches sketch. And in case you're wondering where the photos of my family are, well, it's volleyball season. I've noticed that I hardly take pictures during volleyball season. (think of it as a little reprieve after a summer with my camera shoved in everyone's face!) I'll do my best to snap a few though. Really, even if I did, they'd be of little girls playing under the bleachers in the gym or of half-clothed kiddos playing "house" in their tent, which is what they're doing right now! Thank goodness for imaginations and that they get along! :D

That's all for now! Have a great day!
