CPS 111, 2S4U Kazan Sketch #24 & Use It! #6

Happy Thursday everyone! (I almost typed happy Friday...because today was my Friday at work! Tomorrow we head over to Helena for my cousin's wedding, which I am photographing!! Eeek- very excited, and a tad nervous.) But before I leave for the weekend, I wanted to share a few things with you!

First up is my card for sketch 111 at CPS this week. We were sponsored by My Cat's Pajamas this week...and we got some of the most DARLING stamp sets. For this CPS card I used the stamp set called "Puppy Love". So freaking cute...love them! Be sure to check out all the fabulous cards at CPS if you haven't yet this week...the girls all did a great job!
**PULLED FOR PUB**

I also got a second set of stamps from My Cat's Pajamas that I didn't use for my CPS card...but I did make a mini card set with them. The set I used for these cards is called "Beans & Bunnies & Peeps, oh my!". I really don't think the set could BE any cuter. Love all the fun sentiments in this set. I think the first two are my favorite in the set of 4...but I do like all of them! What about you?

And I finally had some time to head over to the 2 Sketches 4 U blog this week...it has been forever it seems. Life has just been a bit busy. This is my card for Kazan's sketch 24 this week...using some of the MME Bella, Bella papers that I recently received. They are SO pretty...love them!
And last but not least is the card I did for Use It! challenge #6. The challenge this week was to:
1. Go out of your comfort zone (subdued colors)
2. Use something you have been hoarding awhile (red heart jewel)
3. Use some of your new favorite items (MME Bella, Bella tree paper)
4. Heat emboss (sentiment)
This card also features the "Roots and Wings" and "Roots and Wings add-on" stamp sets by Renaissance by Design. I adore these stamps...they are so wonderful. Be sure to check out the link....they are fabulous!

Well ya'll...wish me luck for the weekend! The weather is supposed to be just perfect...which I am very excited about! I hope that your weekend is perfectly wonderful!

Until later,
~Lea
