Hers and Mine

I've long considered myself a card making scrapper.  :)  I started making cards so I could play with all the lovely girlie paper and embellies that are available.  Having 3 boys does not lend oneself to using a lot of flowers and pretty things. Card making lets me!  Ah, sweet freedom! *laugh*

Here is a card I made just yesterday.  Have any of you been following Paper Craft's Gallery Idol?
This is a lift of the lovely Shanna Vineyard's card that she made to get herself in the top 15.  I absolutely loved it and wanted to make one.  :)  I change up the flower a bit, hand stitched a little and added that cute snail, but the overall design is hers.

As much as I enjoy card making, scrapping still brings me great joy! In the last year I have switched from the 12x12 format to 8.5x11 and have been much happier with my layouts.  I still do the occasional 12x12, usually for a sketch challenge, but am much happier with the smaller format.  Here is a layout I did for Kim's
Color Challenge at My Sketch World. 
For those of you who live in Michigan, I am aware that I spelled Ocqueoc wrong, but I couldn't get the letters up once I stuck them on the paper so I'm choosing to overlook it.  *laugh*  I didn't have much new product with these colors so this was made with scraps!  Love that.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Sunday, friends!
