A Go To Sketches Top 10 Blog Hop

A Go To Sketches Top 10 Blog Hop
To say that I am excited and thrilled to be a part of this blog hop, is a huge understatement.
I hope you all have had a chance to flip through this issue.  It really, truly is, beautiful.
If you don't have a copy, click on the cover it will take you to a website to purchase one.


For this blog hop, we were to create a never been seen before project, using this sketch.
I for one, love a great sketch, and this one is just that, great.
In fact this entire issue is full of them.
For me, a sketch is a starting point, a place to draw inspiration from and find your mojo.
Sometimes, what I end up with doesn't look like the sketch, and that is okay too.

I made a card, and a gift card holder.
The Material Girl line from Cosmo Cricket, just makes me smile.
If I use product that I love, then most likely it will be something pleasing to the eye.
Well at least to me lol
I have two school aged children, so I am constantly in need for age appropriate cards.
How flipping fantastically cute is that googly-eyed little girl?
Way cute!

For the card, I flipped the sketch, so that it would work for a tall card.
I used the Tiny Type alphabet stickers to create my sentiment.
Besides the twine and card stock, all product is from Cosmo Cricket.

This is going to be a coordinating gift card holder.
I used an awesome Maya Road envelope.
Again, all Cosmo Cricket product, except the "you," stamp which is from Technique Tuesday.
Don't forget to visit all of the designers on the blog hop!
There are prizes!!
A few copies of the Go To Sketches issue
