***** WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!! *****

Yeah, it is finally here! I am going to keep this short because I know a few of you visiting here are going to blog hop all day! Two cards today, a great guy card BELOW, be sure to scroll down.

Card 1.
fanfold lace circle cardI used Weekend Sketch Challenge 99. The first card I saw made with this sketch used a full circle, hanging off the edge, instead of wsc99 just a partial circle. I am kinda a fan of going beyond the edges. Check out HERE. The lace was pre-pleated, I ran a basting thread along one edge and pulled it until the lace formed a circle, you can do this with unpleated lace and ribbon too. The sentiment is part of a SU! wheel, I unmounted it and cut apart the sentiments according to the directions HERE.

RECIPE
Ink:
chocolate chip-SU!, worn lipstick and antique linen Distress ink, old olive-SU!
Stamps: friendship wheel-SU!
Paper: unknown DP, Bazzil CS (dark brown), old olive CS-SU!
Accessories: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, swirl die-Sizzix, notebook punch-SU!, brad-stash, vintage lace-stash, foam dots-Jody Morrow

Card 2.
youve got a friend in meI saw a really cute card yesterday with multiple circles sewn on to the card. Sorry, I don’t remember where. I took the idea and changed it just a wee bit, using fewer elements and changing them to stars. This is another sentiment from the Friendship wheel. Cute button isn’t it? Must be laser etched the work on it is so finely detailed.

I hope you will visit some more of my cards. Feel free to scroll down and if you really love a card, don’t forget to book mark that post, leave a comment and VISIT AGAIN!

I don't know what everyone else is talking about, sure the lace card is great, but the star card is so boldly designed and colored, it is awesome!
