Sparkly pink and brown

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

So I have been creating but haven't been posting much art this week. I've got a big event for work on Friday that I'm in charge of that is taking quite a bit of time. We're having a picnic/silent auction fundraiser for United Way. I'm really actually excited for the night but will kind of be glad when it's over. There's definitely a lot to plan.

Anyway, my card is one of a few cards that I've made up multiples up of to put in my crafty gift basket for the silent auction. I'm hoping that somebody will want some handmade, albeit simple, cards.

Isn't this paper so divine? I love all the sparkle on it. Such great texture and the colors are some of my faves. I'm sad that I only had 1 sheet of it and it's mostly gone now. :( And what a great punch that Martha has. I totally love the button look. I can have buttons in any color I want.

Patterned Paper: unknown
Stamps: CTMH Thanks
Other: Nesties, cuttlebug, Martha Steward button punch, CTMH white waxy flax

I'd like to thank everyone for their well wishes about our van. It's the craziest thing but when we looked at it after church on Sunday, it started right up. Devin looked at me like I was crazy. I assured him that it was acting up and that the second it started, it stalled. So far, no other problems. So, I'm not sure what the problem was but at the moment, it only cost me a missed hour at church.

I hope that each of you are doing well and enjoying your week. Thanks for the visit.

Very pretty card, Alanna! How cool to be making cards "for a cause." I love my button punch, too, but haven't used it nearly enough. I hope your great card serves as a reminder to use it again. Have a great Thursday!

Lovely card full of great sparkle! Good luck with your auction. I'm sure you've been consumed with all the details organizing an event entails.

I bought that punch, but haven't used it yet. I really need to!

Have a great day!

I am a simple spirit and think your pink card would be a great "auction basket" item.
