a CPS Sketch

I feel like the gall bladder surgery has sucked the life out of me. Seriously, how long does it take for me to get my energy back?? I am tired all of the time. I managed to squeak a couple cards out today, though.

I am designing a class that's called "Inside Out" in which we will make cards that are ornately decorated on the outside AND the inside.I used this week's CPS sketch for the layout on the outside:

These adorable stamps are by Stampendous. SO fun to colour. Here's a shot of the outside and inside side-by-side. I made two. I'm so productive, I can hardly stand it..

The inside features this handsome fella:

I've mentioned this before, but don't you hate it when you show someone a card you made and they say WOW, that's SO nice, then look on the inside to see if there's anything else. Well, it's always a pleasant surprise when there is, right?

So there's my big accomplishment for today. Besides teaching since 7 this morning, getting home, teaching private lessons for 3 hours, but you get the idea!!

Supplies: Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Cardstock: Papertrey Ink and Bazzill; Stamps: Stampendous; Ink: Momento; Copic markers, Kaiser Jewels, Making Memories Slice (to make the little tag), Ribbon (American Crafts).

  2. Absolutely ADORABLE. Love that princess smooching the knight. What a great card...love the rich colors!!! :)

  3. Very nice! Love the colors. Speaking of people opening the card to find something else inside: I gave my Mom a notebook that I embellished. She saw the front, said it was nice, then proceeded to flip through every blank page as if I had hidden some little surprise within! Silly!

  4. sooo cute!!! it does take a bit to get your energy back post op after that surgery...hope you're feeling 100% soon :)
