Gettin' Sketchy with CPS!

I had a little free time and decided to whip out a couple of cards using this week's CPS sketch!

First up... here's a card I made using a little of my new Early Bird collection from Cosmo Cricket. I have fallen head over heels in LOVE with this new line. Oh! It's good stuff! Mmm! You'll be seeing a LOT of things made from this collection from me... so I hope you like it too!

I stamped and embossed the dotted background and distressed everything with "Old Paper" Ranger ink. I added a little chipboard salt shaker too, just to give it a little dimension. :) The blue CS is from Memory Box & the dotted paper is from Scribble Scrabble (and punched with a Fiskars tool to create the scalloped edge). I think I'll give this card to my hubby for our anniversary on Friday. Of course, I always steal my cards back after I give them to him. He doesn't seem to mind. ;)

This second card is one that I made for a girl I grew up with who just lost her son. (he was born with a lot of health problems and suffered with them for a long time.) The card is a lot softer in real life... and hopefully it looks ok to use as a sympathy card. My heart just aches for her. I can't imagine how she must feel right now.

The inside of the card reads, "Look to the Lord & His Strength. Seek His face always" - which is a stamp from the Something Within set by Unity. All of the images on the front are from the Floral Fantastical set. The paper is from Crate Paper.

Well... I've been up since 5 am for work and it's nearly midnight... so I've got to scram! Thanks for stopping by!!!


  1. These cards are adorable! I love that new Cosmo line... saw it in my lss and didn't get it then, I better go get it fast 'cause it is so popular! Love it! I am so sorry for your friend. I couldn't imagine...

  2. Love all the dots, Julie, and the s/p shakers are so retro fun! Hope you got a little shut-eye Ü

  3. These are both super cute, Julie! I love the salt and pepper! :)

  4. Good grief, such sweet cards!!
