A 2 Post Wednesday

Every Wednesday is a 2 post day for me, and this is my 2nd post!!! Just scroll down for the Freshly Brewed Challenges post, but not till you check out this sketch we have for you on Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Talk about another fun one, you really must try it out!!!! Now if the sketch on its own doesn't convince you, wait till you see our sponsor!
Yep, that's right, we are sponsored this week by the fabulous By Lori Designs. What will the grand prize winner receive?

A $10 gift certificate for By Lori Designs!!!!! Now that is one sweet prize!!! Thanks Lori!!


I was lucky enough to get to use Ethan on my card! With two boys of my own I am always drawn to the guy stamps! I needed a masculine birthday card, so what good timing! I used the We R Memory Keepers MVP designer paper cause it screams all boy to me. Hope I didn't ruin the masculinity of the card by sewing on it!!! LOL!!! The ticket is a die from PTI that I've had but never used...same with the coordinating stamp set! This is something I plan on focusing on this new year, using what I've got!!! Now head to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's work, they are simply wonderful!!!

I think sewing is the perfect way to dress up a masculine card! The papers and Ethan go so well together and I love the ticket embellishment!

Fabulous card Linda! I totally adore the papers - so perfect with Ethan. He doesn't look bothered by the stitching! Actually your stitching is your trademark-always a perfect finishing touch to your cards. The ticket stamp is great here - I have it too and also haven't used it but once. I should adopt your new resolution to use what I have - I think that would last only a couple week though! Have a good week.
Hugs,
Sharon

Great card this week I loved this masculine image especially having two boys. My boys thought the image was MEAN which means great, good, what ever. Love your stars I have them as well I buy it by the metre. Great job and love your colours.
