Card Patterns sketch, and some gift sets

Hi gals, I'm so glad you're here!
I'm still being very busy... BUT...! You know there always has to be time to get crafty for Chupa :) It's Sunday, and this means that new challenge at Card Patterns has just been launched yesterday. Yay!!
Let's get on to the business, shall we?
We've got a wonderful sketch at Card Patterns this week, but wait until you find out who our sponsor is.... drumroll please...


Woohoo!! Isn't it exciting?! For our super cool players, Hero Arts will generously donate two 4x6 Hero Arts Stamp Sets! Hop over to the CP blog to see which ones are these, ogle over the eye candy from the rest of the team, and link your card, if you wish to participate!

Now, here's the sketch, and my take on it.
I used several different stamps from Hero Arts, including a clear polymer stamp set (owl, sentiment), and a woodblock rubber stamp (flourish). I'm SO in love with their wood mounted stamps, especially backgrounds - they're HUGE, heavy, and stamp like a dream! :)

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, Bazzill; paper: Venice pad from 7 Gypsies; stamps: Hero Arts; ink: ColorBox Bronze, chipboard frame: Collections; sewing machine; Glossy Accents by Ranger; edge distresser: Heidi Swapp

I also had a little session in the craft room this morning - I had to make two gift sets, for my sister-in-law's birthday, and her 4 year old daughter, who just turned 4!
I had gifts for them prepared in the envelopes (for the *big* girl - gift voucher for a little pampering session in the beauty salon, and for the *small* one - a ticket to the Melbourne Zoo for the whole family). I'm sure they're going to love it! :)

Firstly, let's see the one made for my sis. I drew inspiration from the beautiful image of the Eucaluptus Body Lotion, that can be found in the Thymes shop: the theme for this week Inspiration Challenge at SCS - IC225.
Since it's all about celebrating her b-day, I'm also entering the set into WT263 - Let's Celebrate.

And here's the cute set for the lil' gurl. I used the C4C30 sketch, but changed the shape of the card to square, and flipped the round element, so that it suited my design.

There's also a card from yesterday, that I'd like to share with you. I made it for Tuesday Trigger: Butterfly Dreams, and Go-to Sketch Challenge. The card turned out to also have the colours suitable for CCEE1012 Inspiration Challenge.
