Cac Sketch Tuesday

Good Afternoon! How are you doing? Were you affected by the storms at all yesterday? We had high winds and lost a few shingles but otherwise we were lucky! I heard of trees falling and doing serious damage, cars/trucks flipping over and tornadoes! I hope that all my cyber friends are ok!

It's Tuesday so time for a Create-A-Card Sketch. This week I thought I'd share a couple of cards with you. The first card is actually for this week. It's a nice sketch using a circle and I found it easiest to do a square card. So here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I used my Coluzzle for my circle. Did you hear that they are being discontinued??? What ever am I going to do??? The sentiment is from a Quickutz die and the papers are from My Mind's Eye. I just love how all the papers match and I don't have to struggle with that!!

In February, I made a card for my hubby's birthday. The sketch was from PageMaps and it was a sketch used on the CAC group. Not sure why I didn't share it but thought I would now.

I made this like a postcard - there's no flap to open. It's 4x9 in size. The front has a pocket that I made to hold a gift card from Best Buy. Below is a picture of the back side

I kept the same sketch but left it open so that Abby and I could write out message. I then used a long Bazzill envelope to put it in. The DP is Chatterbox. Jay was very pleased with the card but I think he liked the gift card more :o) Really though Jay and I have been married for 10 years and he's kept EVERYTHING that I've ever given him - it's neat to look at the old cards and the things I wrote in them.

That's it for today - I have a FUNShop with a great group of girls and tonight we are making toilet paper mini books! It was really fun to make and I love that we recycled something - Our motto for March is TO GO GREEN!!! I know there are a lot of creative people out there so leave me a comment and tell me something that you recycled into a craft projects!! The more the merrier - we could all use some inspiration on using things we all have so don't be shy - tell us all about it!!

Thanks so much for looking!

Oh Michelle both of these are amazing!!! I love the ciricl on your first card! I would have made it a circle image and completely ruined the effect!! You did a brilliant job of accenting the papers and making the sentimetn the stand out!! So brilliant and you husbands card is amazing!!! I am so casing that idea! I never know what to make for Jason but yours is a perfect male card right down to the color choices and layout! How sweet is Jay to keep all the things you give him. That makes it all worth it!
