Unity Sept. 2011 KOM sketch - only took 3 tries!

Okay, so I am the youngest of 3 in my family... BUT I am the youngest by 9 years, so I grew up very much like an only child as my sibs graduated and left when I was just in elementary school. So I'm not carefree and wild... I'm the list-maker, rule-follower, type A girlie.
And yet... I created my sketch card and I totally didn't follow the rules and use KOM stamps! Ooops. Okay, so first the card that follows the rules:

Stamps: Unity May 2010 KOM
papers: my minds eye and unknown from my favorite Ippity chick! :)
Button from stash, Momento rich cocoa ink, twinery twine

My husband I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary in three weeks. I wanted to make an anniversary card... do you think it's too feminine? I kept the flower portion small and went with the strategically placed button (realized too late that that oval had a slightly chopped off end!). I like how it turned out. I hope he likes it!

And before I made that card, I was using my new Halloween "That's Creepy" Ippity set from my favorite Ippity chick, Jen (great name, huh??!! - you can find her here) to make a couple of Halloween cards for my goddaughter and my DH's godson.  I made 2, but this one was my favorite:

Twine from the Twinery, Momento tuxedo black, all other random stash stuff

Thanks for looking!! you have just a few short hours to play along here!! I am cutting it close today!



  1. Awesome cards Jen! I joined in on that challenge just today you aren't the only one at the last minute! LOL! Your sketch card is fab!, and I will have to remember which papers those are. I loooove your Halloween card! I bet your godchildren are going to love them! Way to go on using these stamps! And you are so sweet on the 'mentions'...YOU are AWESOME Jen!

  2. These are great cards! The first looks like a fine anniversary card to me, and I love how your Hallowe'en card turned out, even if it can't qualify for the challenge!

  3. Great cards, Jen! I do NOT think the first one is to girly for your husband. Also, I did the same thing with making a card for the challenge that didn't use KOM stamps:)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
