A card and a few peekies

Are you inspired by sketches? In my last post I used a sketch on my layout. On this card, I used a sketch by Becky Fleck that was featured in the September CardMaps. If you are a cardmaker, hop on over there and view the new inspiration. Oh, and for this card, the papers are from American Crafts.

As promised, here are a few peeks from the September Half Tart kit from Lime Tart. Check the website around the middle of the month for all the wonderful creations. I always get excited when they go up.

And I almost forgot! My friend, Nancy, gave me the "I Love Your Blog" Award last week. How cool is that? Thanks, Nancy!

So what does that mean? Well, that means that I get to spread the love. Here are the rules:
(1) The winner can put the logo on their blog.
(2) Link the person you received your award from.
(3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
(4) Put links of those on yours.
(5) Leave a message on the blogs of the girls or boys you’ve nominated.

Now comes the fun part.. nominating seven other blogs (that haven't already been bestowed this honor recently...tough!) So, here goes:

*Betsy because I enjoy looking at her lovely eye-candy each and every time I visit her blog. I love her inspiring use of bright, vivid colors.
*Donna because she always has the coolest vacation photos.
*Linda because, well, truthfully - I recently found her blog. She always has the coolest techniques.
*Hilary because I always get sooo inspired when I see her projects. And her lovely photos.
*Kris because - well, I love eye-candy!
*Godelieve because she IS the stamping queen.
*Julie because, simply put, she inspired me.

So.... there you have it. Go check out these blogs and have a wonderful day!

Your cards are so cute!

I just have to tell you that someone came to our LSS yesterday with a picture of one of your cards in a mag because she wanted to duplicate it! It was a darling pink one with pink/brown paisley paper on the top half and pink striped paper on the bottom by a company I hadn't heard of.

Anyway, I was tickled that she was so excited to make this card by someone I get to DT with! :D
