I Know This For A Fact--The Craft's Meow Rocks!

Well, yesterday I thought it was Saturday all day and I'll tell ya'll why. Eric stayed home from work. It threw me off. However, it was for a great reason (gone are the days when he was home all the time for a not so great reason!)--we went to Frisco to go have lunch with our oldest daughter, Shelbie and see the fancy hospital she works at as a concierge/registration specialist. It was amazing to see her at such a great place to work and meet some of her friends (and the hospital food was excellent, too!). We are so proud of her! And she turns 20 on the 21st! I'll have a 20 year old?!!! Changing the subject, moving on, let's not talk about that too much.

Today is the third Saturday of the month and time for me to share my latest creation for Jen's March Sketch For You To Try. If ya'll will remember, our sponsor this month is The Craft's Meow. I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying playing with these stamps! HERE'S what I did for my first project. Jen and I decided to trade stamp sets, so I have something a little different today.

I made an anniversary card for Eric using the sets I've Got Your Number and Telegram, both of which I am in LOVE with, and together they are even better. There's a lot going on with this card, but I was in a "more is more" mood and wanted to make sure it was completely different than my CAS first SFYTT card this month. You'll want to see these sets to find all the various stamps I used for this card. LOL!

Ok, if I have any chance of grabbing some iced coffee on my way to work, I better make this the end of my post for today. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Be sure and get in a little corned beef and cabbage for dinner!

Here's a little listing of the other SFYTT girls that are showing their mad card-making skillz today using this sketch:

SUSIE Q-TIP: I think I've mentioned this before, but I love to stamp on patterend paper. Yes I meant to say, "patt-er-end" paper. It's just funner. When stamping text, cheat like me and use a paper with grid lines of some sort to keep it straight.

Paper: Linen, Kraft, Aqua Mist (PTI), Miss Caroline (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Real Red (SU!), Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye (Colorbox)
Accessories: Big Scallop CutUps Die (The Cat's Pajamas), Scallop Border (MFT), Circle Nestabilities, Circle Punch, Pinking Shears, Sewing Machine/Thread, Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, Pewter Brads, Hemp Twine, Glue Dot, Jody Boosters

  4. See this is why I sait I love your work on Terry's fb page. I love your colors and layers. You come to mind when I have a tough time and think what would Susan do.. lol.. Thanks for the inspiration and I ALWAYS look for your tips.. love them. you are too funny on some. If you get a chance you can check out my blog at

  5. Love this card...the colors and images are bright, and interesting, but clean and seemingly uncluttered! It's also perfect for my son-in-laws, brothers and all my grand other words all those important people in my life that I SHOULD be doing cards and paper crafts for, but always seem to choose "not-so-masculine" images, etc. YOU know what I mean, right?
    So this is great, SusieQ! THNX for sharing! Can I buy the stamps @ Scrapper'sB ? ~Terry Y. (littlebirdie2)
