Embellished :)

I wanted to share with you today two cards I made from product available at Embellished Scrapbook Shoppe.  Their new site is simply amazing!  
We have had a very busy few weeks here in Denver.  My parents are till here from South Africa enjoying the magic of early Summer in Colorado and of course spending time with the Girls.  We are loving every minute of it.
I hope your week starts out as a good one.

Spellbinders & a simple Thank You

I am having a fantastic time on the Spellbinders Design Team.  It is always so much fun working with products that you love and the SB DT Girls are so inspiring, so amazing and just plain fun!  It makes for a great mix and I looove it :)
I made this picture frame shadow box using a simple Shadow Box from Target.  I die-cut the Spellbinders Butterfly Reflections and then jazzed them up using Clearsnap's Smooch (YUM!!).   The center scalloped square is another Spellbinders die - this time I used the Classic Scalloped Square Nestabilities which I think are my new fave's - seriously!
So this layout is another Spellbinders Design Team project using my Classic Scalloped Square Nestablities ( See I told you I love them!).  The little star fish are part of a set of other ocean creatures from Spellbinders Shapeabilites - this set is called ShellsThe paper is from Upsy Daisy Designs - so cute!
*if anyone was watching HSN a few weeks ago you might have seen the lovely Kim from Spellbinders demonstrating the fab Wizard and some Spellbinders dies.  Well right next to Kim and the HSN host, on the table you might have noticed this layout!  Yep pretty exciting for us. Alex was very thrilled to see her 'wholeself" on TV - well kindof - my 3min of fame on HSN :)*
Laura dropped by the other day with the most gorgeous flowers and dinner.  Both my Mom and Dad are here from South Africa and it was a very nice surprise.  I am so grateful to have you as a friend (and 2S4y partner).
Hugs LD
We are super busy exploring Colorado - hope your week is filled with new discoveries too.

Huge Success

Wow!  is the response we received from around the world after the first week of the 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown.  We admired and were inspired by over 400 cards - each so creative and beautiful that it was almost impossible to choose 30 Finalists.   Luckily we had the 2S4Y Design Team (past and present) to help us select 30 very talented ladies who are now making cards hoping to be selected as the Top 20.  It is very exciting and so much fun.
This is the card I created for this weeks sketch.  I am so in love with vintage at the moment and take any opportunity when I am out and about to find something old and gorgeous to put on my cards.  This image came from a vintage card that I picked up in an Antique shop in Buena Vista, Colorado.
I hope to see you on 2 Sketches 4 You because there is another fab giveaway from a cool sponsor.  We are getting ready to head to the airport - My Dad arrives from South Africa today...whooohoooo!
Thanks for stopping by - have a great Monday!
