Card of the Week

As I mentioned yesterday, it's my turn to do the Card of the Week for the whole of August. Every Wednesday for this month I will be showing a card that I've made using *mostly* products from the new mini catty. I started with a sketch from Our Creative Corner, which I tried to load up here but for some reason blogger won't play nice! But you can click on the link to go see it. And here's my card:I started out knowing I wanted to use the new 'Apple Cider' DSP from the mini and so I took my colours from that; Choc Chip, Really Rust, River Rock and Wild Wasabi. The ribbon is from the 'Beachfront' ribbon originals and the sentiment is a rub on from 'Eastern Elegance', which is also in the mini. The stamp in the medallion in the centre is from 'A Beautiful Thing', which co-ordinates with the rub ons and was stamped with white craft ink. The medallion was made with the scallop, 1 3/8" & 1 1/4" punches. The little circles of River Rock CS were punched out with the 1/2" circle punch and the itty bitty flowers also come from the rub ons pack. I've also used the corner rounder on the sentiment panel.

The wavy line was made using a metal scrapbooking ruler and a craft knife and the paper used on the card is from one double sided sheet, showing both sides at once...cause it's just too hard to choose one! I really love this DSP, there are so many cute prints and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of it.

Right, well I'd better go now, because last night I had the brilliant idea of rearranging my room so that my craft desk was closer to the window and to try and make more space for my growing collection of crafty stuff. I got all the major moving around done, but I still have a lot of tidying up and organising of bits and pieces to do. *TIP: Do not decided to rearrange furniture and tear your room apart at 6pm in the evening or you will wake up to an unholy mess the next day ;)

Have a great day....I might even be back later and show you some pictures of my newly organised space....just so you can take pity on me for have to work in such a tiny area!!!

Wonderful card for fall! I need to get started on autumn cards and Halloween too. Not too much mojo going on here.

I can't wait to see the new catalog. My SU! friend is having an open house on the 13th and I can see it then :)
