Makeesha's Challenge #4

Boy, do I have a lot to show you guys!

First, here's my submission for Makeesha's inspiration challenge (click on her name):



And here are the bookmarks in the nude!



Aren't they sweet? I CASE'd them from a talented lady by the name of Patti Lee - her blog Creations by Patti is a wonderful source of information and inspiration. Check it out!
I used Eastern Blooms on their kimonos, the round tab punch and 13/8 inch circle punch to make the bookmarks, and So Many Sayings (level 1 Hostess set) on the bookmarks.

Next I have to show you these cards from the Starter Swap I was involved in a couple of months ago - 6 new Demonstrators swapped cards. Here they are:


They are by: Melissa Sharp, Chantell Randall, Bronwen Cornish, Louise Sutton (ME!), Christie Wallace and Lisa Beard
Aren't they lovely? I think that we newbies are pretty darned clever!

Here's the card we made as a make and take at the workshop I did on Monday:


This was CASED from a card by the fabulous Stephanie Pike. I used Groovy Guava cardstock, ribbon and ink, Chocolate Chip cardstock and ink and Very Vanilla Cardstock. Mmmmm, anyone else hungry now? The flower stamp is one of the FREE SAB sets, Botanical Blooms. The background is the ever-faithful En Francais. (I use that a lot!)

Last of all is a card with matching wrapping paper for a little girl's 4th birthday last weekend, using Polka Dot Punches (FREE SAB set). I was trying to do the Bandanna Technique, but don't think I got it quite right. I still liked the effect, so I thought I'd include it - keeping it real, folks!

I've also been playing with some OSW (One Sheet Wonders) but I'll have to make that a post for another day as my children keep banging on the study door demanding my attention.
