Safari Thank You


It's Friday, so that means that there is a new sketch and a new Challenge at Get Sketchy! This week's sketch is so versatile! All of the DT members came up with amazing but completely different cards. It's always fun to see all of the different projects posted. Please check out the challenge HERE and play along!

My card features an adorable set of stamps that I just received from DeNami Design. The set, Safari Animals, includes three little critters: a zebra, a lion and an elephant. Aren't they so cute? Many of you know I have a weakness for critter stamps. The patterned paper and cardstock is from Creating Keepsakes, and the ribbon and most of the buttons are from DeNami Design. I love their buttons-they come in coordinated assortments, so you get a ton of different styles of buttons that look great together. I also used some flocking that I picked up in the dollar bin at AC Moore. It is from Studio G and worked great! I used a Quickie Glue pen to color over his mane, then sprinkled the flocking on. So easy, and it added just a bit of texture to this card. (Attention bling girls: This pen is also great for adding loose glitter!)

One other "good thing" I want to share: My friend Lisa Forsythe (a fellow Get Sketchy designer) has a card featured on the cover of the latest issue of Cards magazine! I'm so excited for her. Please check it out, and visit Lisa's blog for more great inspiration. Be sure to leave her some love!
