I'm doing a Cameo...



{For my Just Us Girls Card, click here!}



... CARD with Cameo, that is!!!





I'm playing along, as a MUCH honored guest designer this week,
with the SUPER talented folks over at my FAVORITE, weekly destination
for sketch inspiration and a whole lotta good mojo! When I think about how often I rely on
their excellent compositions and fantastic Design Team inspiration {and it's GOING on
YEARS now!!!!}, I have to say Card Patterns is a very important part of my personal
foundation of creating! I had the privilege of being acknowledged in their top six a few
weeks ago {woot*woot!*} and if you've ever seen THE AMAZING people who play with
CP week after week, you can imagine how DELIGHTED & HONORED I was to be noticed!

With THAT said, let me share their FANTASTIC sketch of inspiration for THIS week....!




I can't even begin to describe HOW fabulous this sketch was to work with. I selected some
totally *swoonable* new {to me} paper from Crate Paper and had me a splendid stroll
though crafty town, USA! {I know it was in the USA, because Crate Paper prints that ALL over
their paper! I thought it was VERY cool!} Anywhoo, I let the paper and sketch guide the flavor
of this card. I would have LOST the bet, if I'd tried to wager where, oh where, this project
would take me! I love a craft session where I TRULY work from every corner of
"Scrapland"... I don't know what was more fun, completing this, or FINDING stuff!
{Have I ever mentioned HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SPORT!?!} Mannnnnn!





If you've never tossed your crafty intentions into the mix over there
at Card Patterns - If you have the means, I suggest you try it - It is SO choice!
{Sorry, Ferris... Bueller... Bueller - FLASHBACK!}

Oh, dear! WHAT a crafty week it has been around HERE! Truly!

Some VERY exciting stuff is in store for next week, as WELL!
I have some SUPER news to share and a VERY, very special,
therapeutic and DEAR to my heart project - Oh, BABIES!

Thanks, as ALWAYS! I do think about and feel blessed when you
have stopped by and given me a few of your wonderful words!
My best to you!

Yee Haw!
