On a roll!

Hello again:) This week it seems as though the creative juices have been flowing at the Bruneski house! I made todays card last night at 11pm and it practically made itself. Sometimes creations are hard fought and sometimes they're a breeze and this one was definitely easy breezy. I took out an embossing folder and inked it up before running the base piece through for the coloured base. I also pulled out my long neglected pastels. I rarely use them but they were perfect for the feel of this card. So here's the inspiration pieces...

SSS100 and casestudy#32

And here's mine...

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: SU and Recollections
Patterned: K&Company, Bo Bunny
Ink: SU (close to cocoa) Adironadack Espresso
Stamps: SU
Bling: Cuttlebug, flowers (recollections) ; stickles (ranger)

Thanks again for taking the time to visit!

Sweet Sunday and Taylored Expressions combo!

Hello, hello! I can't believe it but I think I'm getting sick again! Grr, hopefully this time it's just a cold and not another infection. I think the Lord is trying to humble me this year, I normally never get sick and have secretly thought it was because I'm such a health nut. Well lesson learned, I'm only a mere mortal!

I made this card yesterday for SSSC109. I went a bit overboard on the stickled cupcake but oh well.

Here's the sketch...

And here's my card...

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Patterned: K&:Company
Ink: Memento Black and copics
Stamp: Taylored Expressions Digital Freebie found here
Ribbon: SU
Buttons random stash

This is also the last day to get in on the fun with Taylored Expressions at Splitcoast.

See you soon,
