I had a real thing (and not a good thing either) about shaped cards some time ago, but now my right eye hardly ever twitches nor my brow start to bead when I attempt to make them. I kid you not, shaped cards really used to give me the heebies...circular ones especially. I am not sure what snapped me out of my phobia of all cards not rectangular. Maybe it was one too many late night cranks of my Cuttlebug (aka my Scooby Doo van as called by my 5 year old) that did it? Dunno? ...But I sure love 'em now.
Needless to say that when I saw this week's sketch by the crazy talented Jen Cuthbertson for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, I knew I was all over it like a cheap suit. Plus, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to get my "Mad Plaid" groove on either. The inner circle layer was made completely with the plaid building strips between the Waltzingmouse Stamps Pic-Nic Patterns and Off Beat Backgrounds sets. I am fairly certain that there are other natty stamp strips in these sets, but I can't be sure as I really only have eyes for the plaid. *wink* The other stamps used in the making of this card are also from Waltzingmouse stamps, and they were from the Seasons of Love Tags (heart), Cameo To Go (sentiment), and Cameo Maker (oval sentiment frame). Bliss.
Thanks so much for cruising over to check it out. It's always a pleasure knowing you've stopped by. Here's to a fabulous, craft-filled day for us all!
