CPS Sketch #125.............

I've been following the Card Positioning Sketch blog for awhile and now that I have my blog up and running, figured it's time to jump in and play. You can see this week's sketch by Tami Mayberry here --> CPS Card Sketches. And here's my take on it...

I intended to turn it sideways and have it be a landscape card, but ended up just flipping it upside down instead.

Tools & Supplies:
Fiskars Americas - Squeeze Punches: May Flowers, Around the Corner, Oopsie Daisy, and Round 'n Round
Fiskars Americas - Border Punch: Scalloped Sentiment
Fiskars Americas - Ultra ShapeXpress Tool
and Circle Shape Template
Heidi Grace Designs - Thank You stamps

Lily Bee - French Couture: Handmade and Stella patterned papers
Fancy Pants - All Fall: Penmanship patterned paper (back)

Also.....there's a new article up at the Fiskars website about how to make your own
camera strap slip-cover. The article has so many great versions....very, very cute! I have to admit that I wasn't super confident when I first got the assignment, but I really liked how my version turned out and have found that with each sewing project I'm given my skills improve more and more. I think I may have overcome my sewing phobia...yay! The home economics disaster project from 7th grade is finally in the!

Have a great day!
