CPS 155

Dreary winter in Minnesota… so I needed something bright! Here is the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #155 for this week:

And here is my take on it — I flipped it sideways.

My stamp image is from Teresa Collins — I love her sentiments and graphics! The papers are all from KI Memories. Thanks for looking!

Waiting and Wishing for Spring, and CPS 153

I’m sitting at my desk by the window looking at 4′ tall berms of dirty snow alongside my front curb… there are coke-slurpee-like puddles in the street and under all that snow is the planter I put in last spring and I can’t wait to get flowers into it. It’s still at least two months until bulb flowers even have a chance at blooming! For me, February is the longest, not the shortest month! The card below is more for myself, but I’m sure I can think of somebody to send it to.

I recently purchased my first digital stamp from Bee-Crafty where there are some super sweet images. I also recently splurged on Copics, so I’m still getting my feet wet with those. Papers are Let’s Get Together by CTMH, with gems and ribbon from my stash.

My next card uses the same image and is my take on the CPS 153 sketch.

I used papers from Creating Keepsakes (from JoAnn’s), Heidi Grace rub-ons, a stamp from CTMH and some pearlies. I colored the girl in with Copics. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

My mom was 18, my dad was 20 — and they snuck out of L.A. with two friends, to elope in Tijuana, Mexico because Dad was too young to get married without permission from my grandparents! Fast forward 50 years, 4 kids, 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild later, through life’s ups and downs, they are still together… I wish we could be together on their day to celebrate, but we’ll have to postpone that until Christmastime when we all go to Arizona from Minnesota, Idaho and Utah to celebrate as a family.gummi_gramper1

I woke up way too early this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep — I think I was dreaming about this card. 7-4-09,_CPS_123This is my first CPS sketch and it was fun! My papers are Coredinations and miscellaneous papers from JoAnn Crafts; stamps are CTMH, punches are SU! and CM, and miscellaneous embellies from my stash. CPS Card 002

Off to get this card in the mail — thanks for looking!
