Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! I was super busy this week-end. We hosted a big potluck dinner and ceilidh on Saturday. It was wonderful evening with yummy food, hanging with close friends and of course, music and singing.
So today I have two cards to show you. The first one is my Sketch Saturday card that I didn’t have a chance to post on my blog on Saturday. I was too busy making lasagna and muffins ;)
I have used the incredibly cute Greeting Farm image: Ruby! I got this one over a Scrapbook Centrale (for those of you in the Montreal area) but she is also available at Stamp & Create ~here~ for those of you who are not in the Montreal vicinity :)
I colored her to match this fabulous American Crafts Confetti paper. The background behind the motif was stamped with a Hero arts background stamp and the butterflies were cut out using a Martha Stewart punch and I used the tiny attacher to staple them on. The sentiment was embossed with white filigree powder and is from Verve Stamps. I hope you can join us this week over at Sketch Saturday. Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.
I knew of course that I would be using one of the fabulous Sweet November mermaids. The difficulty was in choosing which one! They are all so gorgeous. I love, love them. In the end, I picked sweet Fathom Calmsea & Lio. I colored her in aqua green and used the same markers to create these dotted underwater scene. I added a few dew drops to softly create the look of bubbles. Here is a close-up of Fathom:
When you untie the ribbon, you open a flap to reveal this sweet message that was stamped with Technique Tuesday stamps. The doily shape was cut out of kraft cardstock with my wonderful Silhouette SD machine. I love the fact that I can download so many different designs and have these intricate shapes cut with just a press of a button. Pure Genius!
The card does open up as a regular free-standing one and you can add your personal salutation to the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my cards. I hope you have a lovely day!
