A House of Cards

A few things to share

I have a few thing to share tonight. I should have done this earlier in the week, but I got side-tracked. (It was my birthday yesterday. The big 39! Eeeeek!)

It was my turn to post on the Pink Paislee blog this week for Trendy Thursday. You can see the post here. I'm not sure if I am necessarily a "trendy" scrapper. I guess if I like a trend I will go with it, but if it is not my style I stay away. For my trend, I chose hand stitching. Not really new, but still pretty popular. I love this technique and I love seeing other people use it too. I chose to use the stitching as an accent to the flowers in this little bucket. Not too much, but just enough to add some color and texture.

My next project I also did for Pink Paislee. A little card and gift bag for Father's Day. If you are still looking for the perfect packaging to put that gift for dad in, you can find the detailed instructions on how to make the set here at the Pink Paislee website in the Pink Projects section.

Next is my take on this week's sketch (#88) over at the Sketch This blog. I had lots of fun with this one, using fun colors and embellishments. Make sure to check out what the rest of the design team did with the sketch. You won't be disappointed! :)

Lastly, I just wanted to share a little toot. That's my card on the June cover of Cards magazine! :) So exciting to see it on the internet... can't wait to see it in person!

Well, that is it for me tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get to spend it with the special dads/husbands/brothers/etc. in your lives. Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic things, as always...Congrats on that cool cover shout out...Gosh, Roree, you do the best work and it's great to get the recognition ... I went to Tucson to make cards with the messageboard gals for 2-1/2 days and one of the gifts were 4 issues of Paper Trends. I was so pleased to see your stuff in them.
