Inspirational Card Sketch #9

Don't you just love it when everything falls into place so smoothly? I had already stamped and colored this image from my new Inkadinkado Humorous Birthday stamp set and selected the patterned papers that I wanted to use with it when I saw Dawn's sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches. Then it was just a matter of looking through my scrap paper pile for a couple of solid colors to go with the patterned paper, selecting some Primas and ribbon, carefully cutting out my stamped image with a Nestabilities, and using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Threading Water border punch. And here is the final result using the sketch.

Thanks Dawn, for another great sketch. And I am so excited, I won the stamp set last week!

I went to my Cricut class last night and it was well worth going to. It was conducted by a representative from Cricut and I learned so much about the features of my Cricut Expression that I had no idea how to utilize. I can't wait to have some time to put my new knowledge to use.

Luck, love and laughter,

Judy

Wow Judy, this is brilliant - I love this image and what a great take on the sketch this week.

Sounds like your cricut class was fab - I have one, but really don't use it enough and I have thought for some time that I really need someone to show me how to use it properly - Just a shame I am not near enough you for you to teach me!!

Have a great week and thanks for joining us again at ICS.

This is totally cute! Love the colors and the image is very funny! I think I could use a Cricut Expression class too! I know that machine can do a lot, and I know that I definitely don't know enough about it!!
