2sketches4you # 21, OCC (doodling), Use It #1

Just a quick post.......Another fabulous sketch from 2sketches4you!! I SO love their blog.....Tons of talent going on over there!! Here's my interpretation of Laura's sketch.......I added doodling to the bottom of this card so I could combine it with OCC (doodling on your card).......

This is a last minute add-on........Rae (yea, yea, you see her in the paper mags ALL the time and YES I think I'm a little jealous of that fact! ;) JK!!!!! She's a very talented lady she deserves it!! It's a lot of hard work to keep up with all that PUB stuff! I just spent (well, hubby did) $12.37 mailing a package to the publisher. Talk about eating into your profit!! :0 Oh well!! I can't wait to see how my project looks in the PUB!! Ok, now back to Rae......She started this COOL blog....Using your hoarded stash.....I love the idea. Who doesn't have stuff from years ago!! I do!! I've been paper crafting for 9 years! I have plenty of STASH.....This card is proof of that!! The paper flower I used...Well, I've had it SO long..I forgot where I got, how long I've had it....I almost forgot where it was when I went to use it!! :D Oh yea, and those typewriter looking button letter thingies...Same thing!!! I don't even remember buying them!! Lucky for me I had them on hand!! They made me one happy girl!! So, I hope you get to play along with one of these challenges this week!! Enough prattling...This was supposed to be a short post!!! Ok, it was until I edited it!!! What's a desperate, obsessed paper crafter supposed to do??!! (I hope this challenge ends this Thursday and not next Thursday!!! I'll feel REALLY dumb!)

RULES For Rae's Challenge:

♦Dig through your stash and use one of your FAVORITE papers♦ (I used K & Company PP)
♦use something (anything) that you have NEVER used before♦ (the paper flower) (vintage stickie)
♦use some ribbon♦ (ummmm....does twine count??) I hope so!! :)
♦use a button♦ (foof-a-la)

This card consists mostly of scrapbooking supplies. The large scallops are half punched 1 3/4 circles. I used some stickers, rub-ons, twine, micro beads, button, and a paper prima. Don't forget about the doodling on the bottom...... :) Thanks so much for taking a look and your wonderful comments! Have a great night!! ~Lori R
