Thanks, Blessing, Love...

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! How was your weekend?
How is your week going so far? Mines not to bad so far! :o)
My weekend was lazy! I had my Crop til you drop on Friday
night and I just talked and talked! I did do some work but I
wasn't really feeling it! You all know what that's like.... Right?
Well I started to work on some cards but I just didn't feel like
putting them together! I visited with other people at the crop and
managed to get several sets done. But by 3am I was tired and just
ready to go home! Now I'm normally one who is there until 6am!
YES! That is true... I LOVE staying up at night! But on that night
I was just plain tired and didn't want to work on anything so I went
home and slept until 11am! Then I had to go do my monthly shopping!
UGH! Sooo Saturday I was out of the state (really) to go do my grocery
shopping! And that was an ALL DAY TRIP! Sooo I got home around 7pm
and ate some dinner and then I was pooped! Soooo Sunday... I did NOTHING!
And well yesterday I had school with my son which was GREAT! We got everything
we needed done and the day went smoothly! So hopefully today will too! I guess
I'll let you know tomorrow how today turns out! LOL After all that
chatter I should show you the card that I made! :o)

I HAD to use my new Circut Circle Cartridge "SOPHIE"
I've been a circle member for over a year... Well since it started...
I have NEVER like any of the cartridges until now!
This is the very first one I actually took out of the package to use!
I'm LOVIN' the cuts on it so I thought I would share it with
all of you! :o)

Card stock, Ink, stamp, ribbon - Stampin' Up
Designer paper - The Paper Loft, Bo Bunny Double Dot
Copper Stickles
Cartridges - Sophie (Leaf Card) was cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2
I used my design studio to alter the size and then I used
the hide contour to hide the fold cuts.
(Yellow Leaf) was cut @ 1 3/4" (2x's)
Art Philosophy (Shape & layer) were cut @ 2"

 I used a stipple brush for the inside of my card.
I was trying to get a similar effect that
the designer paper has.... The section with the stamped
sentiment on it. I just made the inside simple... Thought
about adding some leaves but got lazy again! :o)

Well that's my card for today! I'll see you
guys back here tomorrow on the same Bat Channel
same Bat Station! LOL Have an AWESOME DAY!!

Beautiful!! I just love this cartridge, too!!! I opened it right up and made our Daughter-in-law a birthday card from the rose cut and then failed to take a picture of it! I did some piecing with it. I didn't want the green on the outer edge or inside of the rose, so did it a deeper color than my rose. Man, I wish I had gotten a picture! This cartridge is one of the best Circle cartridges!!! Gosh, I sure have rattled on here.......Love love love your card! Have an awesome school day! :)

I love how you did the inside. I think your inking on the paper looks wonderful and has a great effect!

Oooh...I really like those cartridges too. They are sooo nice! Great job on your card! I think you should add some leaves to the inside of your card. The bottom of the card almost looks like the TH edge shape cut. I can't wait to get the art philosophy cart. TFS!
