2S4Y Cards

 Kelly Marie has some great encouragement for this month's Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge! We hope you'll play along. We know it is out of the box, but we know you can do it!

-----
Hey fellow bloggers! This week continues to be crazy ... I've got two major crafty projects to get done ASAP. Also to get one of those projects done I have to go to one of our local scrapbook stores. Kelley has agreed to go along with me, so that will make the drive much better!

Last night I spent sketching (something I don't do) five Christmas cards to make with ladies at the Women's Retreat this weekend. I hope they like them. Hopefully I'll have those done for tomorrow!

In the mean time I have these two cards I made for the 2s4y design team call. I needed a boys card for family birthday party, and I just loved the sketch! I just went for it.


 
Paper: Boyfriend - Cosmo Cricket
Cardstock: Bashful Blue - SU
Ink: Vintage Cream - PTI
Stamps: Inkadinkado

And since I need tons of Christmas cards:



Paper: Cosmo Cricket.

Can you tell I was loving some Cosmo last weekend! Happy Tuesday!

Both of these are soo cute. I printed off the sketches and thought about it - kudos to you for submiting!! I also had all the intentions of making the bats too - but alas the black posterboard is still sitting in the back of my card - let me know if you come up with any cute ideas on how I can use it for Christmas :0)
