Just Walk On By

Here's sweet little Sally cuddling her bunny while she goes for a walk.  Where's she going?  Who's she looking at? What is she saying?  I'm  leaving that all up to the imagination for the time being.  I am not sure what I will be using this for, so by leaving it  blank, I can stamp something when I decide who to give the card to.

This is another rubber stamp I bought from the Sassy Cheryl store.  It is called True Friendship.  The set comes with butterflies, a birdhouse condo and a sentiment and you can get her here. I made up this card for the lace and handmade flower challenge over at Sassy Cheryls.   The flower is one of my favorites to make.  It is just dies cut with graduated sizes of Spellbinders scalloped circle dies cut from the Graphic 45 paper on the front of the card.  I misted the layers, wrinkled them up, shaped them with my fingers and let the dry.  After they dry I assemble using a hot glue gun between layers.  I then applied Frosted Lace Stickles and Copic Marker to the edges of some of the layers of petals.
The layout is my take on a  MoJo Monday Sketch.   I find when I can't decide which layout to use, sketches come in very handy.  I plan on entering this in the MoJo Monday sketch this week.    When I was searching for this sketch, I found lots of interesting sketches on their blog.

I popped into quite a few blogs this week to take a look-see and I hope to be able to do some  more this week.  It is amazing how truly talented bloggers are out there.  Those of you generous and talented enough to post tutorials, I thank you.  You are so awesome to share all you have learned.  I have really had some surfing fun this past week.

Whatever you are up to this week, make a few minutes to craft something.  Those few minutes will, more than likely turn into an hour or two, but what better way to spend your "me" time?

  11. Okay so where do I start with this card. I guess first off I have to tell you I love the purple and gold color combination. Next, I'd have to say I love your take on the sketch with the lace and ribbon loops. Needless to say, your coloring is as always beautiful, and lastly or maybe firstly, you sure do better with inked stamps than I do. It's why I do digis. Honestly Linda, this card is beautiful inside and out. Have you been hanging around Pat?
