A sketch here and a sketch there...

(Little movie review first) We went to see Brave! The new Disney Princess is oh so adorable! BUT...there were some dark and rather scary parts for a little four year old. The movie contained a witch and a spell and that is the kind of topic we tend to try to avoid in our movie watching, we weren't aware that was part of the story. I can mostly give it a thumbs up, I just wish these movies didn't always seem to have to have the dark portions.  There was a little cartoon kind of movie first and that was something I would want to see over and over, it was beyond cute.

I get to share a couple fun new cards with you in this post.
First off, a card based on the Freshly Made sketch. I am also using it for the Cas-ual Friday challenge for PINK. It isn't all pink but I love the pink accents.
 I just got a wonderful little mini pad of papers by Pebbles, Inc from the Sunny Side collection. I thought the most perfect way to show off a mix of adorable little patterns papers was to cut them in little pieces.
 I used my new die set of Hexagons from Lifestyle Crafts. It was so fun to create my little "quilt" design.
 This wonderful doily design is also a die by Lifestyle Crafts.  The "Smile" banner is a stamp by Pebbles.
 Here is the Freshly Made sketch I followed.
Next up is a card I created around the CPS sketch for this week. Sizzix has been our sponsor this month and I have already mentioned how much I love the label die set that I was able to play with but I have to say it again!!!
The set contains several slightly different shapes that are all meant to work together. I think they are so fun. The little strip under the label is punched with an EK Success border punch and that cute little felt birdie is from a set by Heidi Grace that I picked up a Joann's Craft store.
This is this weeks Card Postioning Systems sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
