THREE MORE DAYS in my 30 day challenge!!
This is the first time I've participated in the 'Monday Card Madness' at scrapbooksteals.com and it looks like I was a couple days too late!! But I had a great time fooling around with it. In fact, I started out thinking I would use the sketch to participate in Jillibean Soup's birthday card challenge. But at the end of the day, I morphed the sketch so much I didn't think it qualified!! Here's the sketch and click for more info on the Monday Card Madness challenges:
Here's what my jillibean soup card looked like and you can participate in the challenge ALL SEPTEMBER - click on the jillibean soup icon for details.
Jillibean Soup collections used are Hearty Barley, Neopolitan Bisque Soup, and Summer Squash, as well as some Soup Labels and bakers twine. I did use some SU ink called 'pacific point'.
I have come to realize for as much as I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE jillibean soup, I have mostly holiday themed collections and paper. Although I did just score some corrugated shapes from Grabba Memories recent close out sale. The GREAT news is that after another scrapbooksteals.com hidden archive shopping spree, I have a number of new collections to look forward to when the post man comes around next week. YAHOO!
As a side note, I had trouble getting my order to process because of shipping constraints at the scrapbooksteals website so I emailed the steal network and I was super pleased with the customer service. This was a big deal because I had a dozen things in my cart and I didn't want to go through the whole thing again. They got it all processed within only a couple hours or so and I didn't have to do anything except pay the bill!
Since I couldn't stop there I picked up my new twitterpated collection from Stampin' Up and went to work on the sketch again.
Materials Used: Stampin' Up (SU) Twitterpated collection, lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, cardstock and ink, as well as some luck limeade sheer ribbon that was part of the sale-a-bration sale in the Spring. The stamp collection used was the 'Love & Laughter' stamp set.
In light of my grandfather's recent passing, I have decided that I will be doing a small fundraiser by selling cards with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer's Society. This charity was chosen by my grandmother and has long been in our family history. I will be selling a set of four cards for $5 and this card will be one card of this set. Stay tuned, as I won't be starting until I return from Ohio in mid September. If you would like me to put you on my list for a set, please just message me through email, facebook, blog, etc... (I am sure you'll find a way). There will be a congrats, birthday, thank you and sympathy card. For anyone looking for cards that are outside the St. John's area, there will be an extra $2 charge for shipping. Payment can be processed via email, cheque or paypal. I have to look into being able to provide a charitable donation receipt so stay tuned on that.
Enjoy your holiday Sunday and Monday!
