CPS sketch 116

Hi Everyone!

Okay, so I lectured you all on making and giving cards last time, right? So, I figured I had better follow my own advice and do the same!
The picture on the bottom is my take on the sketch on the top from Card Positioning Systems. I used Bazzill cardstock, Magenta patterned paper, a Penny Back stamp (flowers) and two Hero Arts stamps (message and the flourish at the top of the page), a Magenta stamp (ivy border),Hero Arts crystals, and Distress Stickles from Ranger in Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint. I used my Copic markers to color the flowers in.
There are some really cool websites and blogs that offer challenges that you can enter your cards in. I have added some of the links to the right as well. Hero Arts usually has a theme that they work with each week. This week is recycling something and using it on your card. Card Positioning Systems has a sketch to inspire you every week. Caardvarks has a new challenge every 2 weeks and their new challenge starts today! I haven't been over there to check it out yet, but can you guess where I am going next? Kristina Werner has a color challenge and I believe it is weekly, but don't quote me on that one. There are tons of others out there! If you keep clicking on interesting links you will find lots of fun and talented people.
A quick note about classes. I have spaces available in my Macho Cards class Thursday 5/21, and Mighty Minis on Tuesday 5/26 if you are local and interested in joining. They are both evening classes. I'd love to see you there! Call Sandy to reserve your spot. The Stamp Art Shoppe - (916) 773-4378
Thanks for the recent comments on my blog! I love to get them! If you would like to be on my email list for classes please leave your email address and I will add you to my list. I promise not to abuse it or sell it to anyone.
Have fun searching and creating today!
