Card Day at SOUS ..

Oh, I love our Card sketch reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches! I have never been much of a card maker until recently and now I am seriously addicted to making them! Fortunately, I have a big family and I'm always needing one! 

Today's original sketch was done by my lovely friend and co-leader, Leah Schaeffer! Thanks, sweeetie, this is such a great one! I know I will be reaching for it again and again! Perfect for using up those scraps you have left over from a layout! 

This card was done using some papers that I just HAD to buy from Recollections called Rooster Provincial. I thought I was over my "all things Rooster" phase but I guess I am not. I bought this stack thinking it would be great for scrapping family recipes but it is seriously some awesome paper! 

Let me share a few close-ups. 

Here you can see my Manor House bloom, my crinkle ribbon, button and jute bow, as well as a stick pin from my stash. 

My sentiment is a Heartfelt Creations stamp stamped on one of the die cuts from the stack. 

I almost never use brads but it was the perfect embellie for the lower banner. 

And here's the inside of the card .. just a series of banner strips. Don't you love the pre-printed chicken wire paper?!! 

Before I let you go, I am re-sharing a card I did for the last Scrap That! reveal. At the time, I could not mention that it was designed using this same sketch! Told you I'll be using this sketch over and over ... 

I hope you will hop on over to Stuck on U Sketches and see what the rest of the Card sketch DT did this week. Also, we have special Guest Designer Frank Garcia with us once again. Please visit him at Haus of W

Can't wait to see what YOU do with the sketch this time! You have 2 weeks to upload your project Stuck on U Sketches. Have a great rest of the week!

  4. Love the cards Sandi they are amazing!!!

  5. Hiya!
    Thanks for the love! =)
    I really do think this sketch and those similar are pretty much just the best out there for really using those scraps that you just can't get enough of...that is so killer that you've already used it twice! You rock!
    And I do love that paper! There is certainly something special and rooster's and chickens..for me, its a direct reminder of my childhood growing up with them. But I also think it roots us to a time when life isn't so dang hectic all the time...
    Oh..and speaking of which, time for me to head to school for pick up! =)

    Hope you are having a great week! Love ya mucho!

  6. Love the papers Sandy! Your card has a very elegant country feel, love it. Thanks for the close ups those manor house flowers!

  7. Love how your bright yellow flower matches your rooster! I too love, love this sketch. Just beautiful Sandi!

  8. This is so pretty! If you aren't really a card maker, you sure have a natural gift for it! I love the roosters, and the chicken wire paper...very whimsical.

  9. Beautiful cards Sandi, it sure is a great sketch! The rooster is too cute, and I loveee your clusters, you are too clever... Hugs xx
