2 Sketches 4 You


Finally! I have something to post. It feels like I've been a boring blogger lately. I found a few things for inspiration today, so I thought I'd give it a try. The first one was those tags that come on a new pair of pants. I was putting some new school clothes in the wash and was taking the tags off, when I seen it! One of those tags that fold over the rim of the pants and then is sewn together in 2 little spots. You know what I'm talking about? I thought "Hey! That would be cool on a card." (You like my detailed thoughts?) The second was a card that one of the design team members at 2 Sketches 4 You made. It was Jokes card. She sewed her chipboard!! It looks so cool. So I had to try it. Thanks, Joke, for the great idea. She always has great cards on her blog. I'm a bit addicted to sewing on my cards lately too. I like how it makes the paper look like fabric. Oh, and I can't forget the sketch at 2S4U. It's always inspirational.
