I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Birthday

 Hello peeps,

I'm having kind of a lazy morning so I thought I'd get my blog post written to share the cards that I made for LeAnne's sketch challenge at the Paper Players. As she pointed out in her sketch intro, this is a great one for using patterned paper. I really like the sketch too and I've used it to make three cards (so far.)

Here is LeAnne's sketch:

Here are my cards. The first pic of each set is the outside of the card, and the second pic is the inside.

Card 1:

Card 2:

Card 3:

I made these Sunday and Monday evenings. They all went together pretty quickly too. I really do think I'll use this sketch to do some more holiday cards.
