Cards with My Sketch

You may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted a card sketch I created and a card to go with it. You can see them hereAlso, here's a little photo of them both.

Well, in that post,  I invited people to use my sketch and share what they created. Two people, whose artwork I admire greatly, rose to the challenge.  I'm so excited to share!

First off, here's a card from my friend, Jaquie Paech, all the way from Australia! She's a CTMH Consultant and beautiful artist.  You should give her a follow at:! Great job with the sketch, Jacquie!  Jacquie used the Hello Lovely Paper Packet, which retires at the end of April, so get it while you can right here.

Secondly is my friend, Laurel Seabrook. Laurel does such beautiful artwork and I always learn something new when I look at her designs.  She is a CTMH Consultant in Canada.  You can give her a follow at:  Laurel used the GORGEOUS Live Beautifully Paper Packet (that will be available from CTMH only in you are getting a sneak peek). Check back here on May 1 and you can see all of the May Live Beautifully products and find out how to get them.  They are TO. DIE. FOR!

Jacquie and Laurel, thanks for making my sketch look so good!

Anniversary or Wedding Card

I think the April Stamp of the Month (Flock Together) is perfect for weddings and anniversaries, although you might not think of those options when you first see it.  I created this 5" x 7" card for my hubby,  Dan the Man (don't worry...he never does social media, so he won't see it!) for our upcoming 32nd wedding anniversary in May.  It's crazy to think we've been married that long!  I was 18 when we got married and he turned 23 just a couple of weeks later. We were babies!  We have built a life and family together that I wouldn't trade for anything (4 children, 4 children in law, 6 1/2 grandchildren!).  He really is the man of my dreams (although, let's be real: he does fart and burp, watch TV with no pants, and do other frustrating man things! TMI?  Remember I said he never looks at social media? I'm safe!).

Back to this stamp set.  It's only available this month, and is only $5 with every $50 you purchase (before shipping and tax).  Purchase $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.

One of the things that I think makes this card special is the shimmery birds.  I used our Clear Shimmer Brush after coloring them with Shin Han Markers and I love the effect.

Here's a little close up of the shimmery birds:

I've  included a complete list of the products I used on this card, along with photos and links for your convenience, at the very end of this post. Happy shopping!
