I made this card for the 'Show Us Your Sheetload and Win - September '08 Contest.' I won 2nd place in the August contest, so I doubt I'll will again so soon, but I still wanted to play along. This month's prize is a $10.00 gift certificate to Scrap Attack Scrapbooking's Online Store. I've ordered from this site before and was pleased with both their selection and their service. If you'd like to play along, you can find all the details here: http://sheetload.blogspot.com/2008/09/show-us-your-sheetload-and-win.html If you've never visited the Sheetload of Cards Blog before, I encourage you to check it out. Its a great blog that gives the reader two sketches a month to download.
Now onto the details of my card. I used the retired Stampin Up! set 'Circus Train' and colored it with my copic markers. The sentiment is from Hero Arts 'Cupcake Images'. I used the new Scallop Edge Punch from Stampin Up! for the blue border. The designer paper is unknown. I added a simple button and brads for embellishment. The photo corner is a Sizzix die. Blue, white and green cardstock were the colors I chose to match the designer paper.
On Saturday I went with my best friend to the Warrens Cranberry Festival in Warrens, Wisconsin. We had so much fun looking at all the arts and crafts. I picked up some great metal accents for my garden and old printer's press drawer to mount on my craft room wall to hold my stamps. I probably could have bought 100 printing press drawers and still not have enough to hold all my stamps. LOL! I will post pictures of our grand adventure on Wednesday.
Have a great day!
