World Cardmaking Day

What a great day for cardmakers everywhere, yes? This is actually the first time I have sat down and made a card today. I have several to make, so I thought I would wait until I could really dig in. I spent some time hanging with my peeps at Karen's event. I helped Kate with making her box, but I am so card heavy here that I thought I better not make some. I still wanted to be social, though. It's my life's calling. :) Plus, the cause was a good one... read up on it via the link above.

My first card was for the Splitcoast sketch for today. Loved the sketch (pictured). It was quick and easy. This card is for my brother's birthday, which is tomorrow. Dang, and I think he's 45. Crazy how time flies.

So, this card is pretty masculine. No ribbon, a little "lift," and a little texture. I love it, though, as Always Artichoke has to be one of my favorite SU! colors. And how could you not love Prints DSP? These scraps were around from my miniscrapbook adventure of last night. [FLASH OF MEMORY... Did you every think back to what your Friday and Saturday nights in college were like? I think I would have laughed myself out the dorm if you told me in 20 years I would spent the weekend scrapbooking and stamping. Small digression... just popped into my head.]
