You all still hangin' with us???

I hope so.  I spoke with Tammy last night and she thinks the forum will be back up this evening.....so until then I have another sketch and card to show you.

I found this sketch in my email this morning from a very talented Go To Gal, Maren Benedict....no I don't know her personally I just happen to subscribe to her blog (Zany Not Crazy) and well you know how it goes.......when she updates I get an email!

Anyhoo, this is the sketch that I received in my inbox this morning. 
It's just one of over 60 sketches found in the new - must have Go To Sketches magazine by Paper Crafts.....whether you're a card maker or not this magazine is chocked full of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing!.



And this is the little card I created using more Jillibean's Egg Drop Soup Paper Collection!

To make these little flowers all you have to do is follow the step by step instructions below.



Step 1: Punch a couple of different size circles out of pattern paper.  I used a 1 1/4 and 1 inch circle for the large flower and a 1 and 3/4 inch for the smaller one.

Step 2: Spritz circles with water and scrunch into a tiny ball and let dry completely....or if you're like me and don't like waiting you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.

Step 3: Once they're dry, carefully open them up and layer them together....decorate the centers with a brad or button and you're done!



Again, if you would like to participate in today's challenge all you have to do is create a card using the sketch above or use the little flower tutorial and link us up!


Happy crafting and have a safe Thursday!
