Sketching some Cards

Happy Saturday!

This past week was my first full week working the new schedule and new role at work. Gotta say I'm feeling great. To get a full nights sleep is so worth it! And trust me, I'm not taking it for granted anymore because I know life can change quickly. With the stress of supervising adults and large school gone, I'm finding my mojo slowly returning. I got really burned out creatively a couple of weeks ago and just couldn't think about creating. It was quite a bummer! You can relate I'm sure. :)

I did force myself to create a few cards for Paper Crafts recent calls. Alas, none of my cards were accepted but that means I still get to share them. Just a little bit sooner! Yay! The two following cards used one of the sketches. You know how much I love sketches!

Supplies: Paper, Button and Letters Stickers: Jillibean Soup, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Flowers, bling: Kaisercraft, Border Punch: Fiskars, Other: jute

While I don't (and probably couldn't share anyway) have the photo of the sketch, you can kind of see where elements were placed.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Brads: My Minds Eye, Stamp Ink: Versafine, Versamark, Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up!, Stamps: (Faux Stitching) Memory Box, (Sentiment) Inkadinkado

Also wanted to let you know that my latest digital kit - Classic Swank - is for sale in my shop! Yay!

Have a great weekend everyone. :)

So, so glad you're getting into the swing of things with your new position at work and so glad you're mojo is returning to you. I know that must feel so great. :) your cards are adorable. So digging the kraft. Love the flowers and the tiny alpha stickers, and love the random bits you used on the second. So fun!
