CPS, 2S4U, and a little more giveaway!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Hope your week has gone well so far! If you haven't left a comment on THIS post about your hopes and dreams for 2009...be sure to do so. To give you a little more incentive...I am upping the ante. Last night I picked up this cute tin on clearance at Target.

Well, it comes with 4 sheets of each paper...and I pretty much never use more than 1 sheet of any paper. SO...I will be adding a collection of this cute KI Christmas-y/New Years-y/Wintery themed papers to the awesome new Card Sketch Book by Cardmakers Magazine. You have until the time I decide to post on Friday to leave a comment! I have loved reading about everyone's hopes and dreams for 2009. You might wonder why I asked about hopes and dreams rather than resolutions? Well- I don't know many people, including myself, who have ever kept a resolution. But hopes and dreams...they can last forever, and the are ever changing. And as you reach them...you can continue on hoping and dreaming. I like that far better than making a resolution I can't keep. :) I look forward to reading more in the next few days.

Up next is the card I got done for this week's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 U (gasp!). It has been awhile since I have been able to join in over there...and I missed it! The sketch is fabulous this week...check it out here. This card is built on a Sheetload Shortcuts transparency (which are FABULOUS btw)...so it wasn't easy to photograph. Hope you get the gist of it!

This is my card for CPS sketch 98. We were sponsored by Sweet 'n Sassy stamps this week, and I chose these adorable deer/scripture stamps. I don't claim to be the best stamper in the world, but I hope I did them some justice. Be sure to check out the blog this week...lots of adorable cards done by the CPS gals. And be sure to keep checking back at CPS over the next few months...we have some VERY exciting stuff happening! ;)

And now some randomness. I spotted this coffee mug while picking up some necessities at Target last night. I am surprised I didn't break it, considering how quickly I plucked it off the shelf...like someone was going to come grab it up before me. Nevermind that there were at least 10 of them on the shelf...I wanted it that bad. Tee hee...isn't it adorable?! Can't wait to have a cup of coffee or tea in it soon! And before I sign off for now...I leave you with a song I just love by Band Of Horses. Hope you like it!




Until later,
~Lea

  20. Hi Lea....love your creations as always! Listening to the music in the background. I like the song.
    I love the mug so much that I went back and bought one more, just in case something happened to the first one. I have been drinking my coffee in them daily :).
    I did buy all the owl/bird plates to match the cup. I have a photo on my blog.
