So Sketchy Sunday #16, 17, AND 18

My friend Mary keeps cranking out the cutest card sketches!

Since I was way behind, I decided it was time to get all caught up. Her sketches are posted first, followed by a photo of my trio.


The first card (SSS16, on the top left) I made as a 3"x3". I just love those little suckers! They are the perfect size to attach to a gift (or just to brighten someone's day).

The second card (SSS17, my top right) is a bit of an odd size (4"x5"), but that's what I cut from my scrap of Twilight cardstock. Works for me!!!

The final card measures 8"x3.5". When Close To My Heart introduce this size, I thought this was odd, but they fit perfectly into a business envelope (and who doesn't have those lying around?). They also work well to hold a gift certificate or CASH, and who doesn't like that? :)

In case you're wondering, this trio is another sneak peek at the August stamp of the month, "It's Your Day."
I hope you have a happy day today, whatever you're doing!
All supplies from Close To My Heart:
It's Your Day stamp set (available Aug. 1-31, 2009)
Tinkerin' paper pack and Holiday Red cardstock scrap
Twilight, Clover Meadow, Sunny Yellow, Sunflower, and Holiday Red inks

I love the idea of cards that fit into #10 envelopes! How smart...and how simple these are to make, AND they turn out pretty darn cute! Cheap, fast, and easy--that's the ticket for me!

And that anniversary card? Just as predicted, it is even prettier in the real:-) Thanks, honey. We love ya bunches!!!
