Eat Sleep Stamp Sketch #124

So I have been meaning to play along with the great sketches that Tracy at
http://eatsleepstamp.typepad.com/tracyc/ has been posting but even with having Wednesday's off, I never seemed to get a card created. Now that I am unemployed I made it my mission to at least attempt this week and not only attempt, but also photograph it as well. As a side note: it's not that I haven't been crafting cards, I just send them before I take a picture!! Anyways, I have been drawn to shiny things for ages and I've always wondered how I can incorporate that into a card. I've actually got an idea for an 8.5 x 11 framed project but that's for another day. I had a can of Coke sitting on my desk and I decided to slice it open and see if it would work if I ran it through my Cuttlebug. And YAY! it did work! I tried it a couple different times and know this will definitely be a technique I will be using more. I just need to find a more efficient way to trim the aluminum. I really love how this card turned out and lately I've been on a baby card kick that doesn't use the 'normal' baby colours! If I had a thicker ribbon, I probably would have used that but I love how my bow turned out. Normally, I really struggle but for some reason, it clicked tonight.

I'm off to the city tomorrow and pretty thankful for that. I've had a sinus issue since last Thursday and I've tried practically every sinus medication around. I found a few Equate (Walmart) brand sinus meds and took one of the pills and WOW - I can breathe and my ears didn't hurt or feel like they were going to rupture. So I need to stock up on them as I'm sure this was partly brought on by all the snow melting - I really curse the snow mold!!



  1. I hope you're feeling better Megs!! I have sinus issues too and they are NO fun. I can barely function some days. :( Your card is AMAZING!!!! And what a genius idea to use a soda can!!!! Brillant. It looks fantastic embossed too!!! Great job with this weeks sketch. Thank you so much for playing along.
