Another Post!

Hello again!

Two posts in one day!  CRAZY!  Just wanted to whip this little guy up for the Unscripted Sketches Challenge.  The ever-talented Kimberly Wiener is now on the design team there and I just had to make a card to celebrate her new posting!  Make sure to check out Kimberly's blog - prepare to be inspired!

Here's this week's sketch:

And here's my take:

Just a quick and simple one.  I was totally inspired by Emily Liephart to tuck the little heart in between the hamster's hands.  I've seen her do this a few times, and just LOVE it.  So sweet!  (I take no credit for that at all!).  She always just adds the sweetest finishing touches on all of her cards! 

And that's it for me today.  No more trips to the craft room until tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by - I love it when you do!


  1. What a cute card!!! I love it!!!!

  2. Ahhhhhhhh this is the cutest card EVAHHHHHHHH!!! Thanks so much for playing along. This sketch really is truly great. You rocked it out of the park!! (Me SMILING BIGTIME)

    Some sketches may be geared more towards a scrap layout, or a lotza layer card---or tags.---but hey, you will see my range --right!!!!! I am so happy to be able to do some digital work. my first love..CAS cards is something I have just been learning. I just can't wait for people to see some of the upcoming Unscripted sketch items I have completed...ANd the best thing about it, I will try to do a layered sample, and also CAS sample to show how you can take somethign layered and make a "less is more" form the same design..... It is awesome to be on a CAS Team, and a NON CAS Sketch Team, Absolute best of both worlds I am truly blessed. More so blessed that I have UBER talented wonderful friends like you to pop by and give the love and encouragement.

    So MWAH right back miss, can't wait to see your next project, your projects are just filled with love and cuteness!!!!

  3. GET out!!!!!!!!!! That little hamster is the CUTEST! LOOOOOOOOOVE! I love your take on this sketch-- you are so good with kraft card bases! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!

    Shannon--you MUST email ASAP! I cannot find your email on your blog or under your profile! I have something to tell you! <3

  4. ..sneaking in some commenting time at work...shhhhhh - don't tell :)

    Sweet as sweet can be! The little heart between his hands really is the perfect touch. Love the deep rich red color of the hearts! Perfectly sweet and perfectly clean and simple!

    The pink Christmas - you've outdone yourself here! A sweet little winter scene ramped up to an 'off the chart' level simply because of the colors - especially the pink gingham!

    You totally ROCKED these two cards young lady!

  5. Shannon, I have to tell you that your comments absolutely light up my day! You are so sweet and funny and kind, I adore you. I've popped over here a few times and I peeked at your cards - you create adorable stuff. I'm glad your blogging/card break is over because you are so good!

  6. Winner, winner with this card! First, you've rocked the challenge, and second, you've melted hearts, as evidenced by the awesome comments you've received so far! Little heart-hold hammie is darling (please can I give him a quick cuddle??), and the polka-dotted hearts that frame him...sighh...Too sweet for words, my friend!! I'm smitten with the you + kraft combination: amazing magic happens when you work with this paper. I want some (paper and magic!) and even though my creations wouldn't hold a candle to yours, I'd be able to *case* you, because you are so phenomenally inspiring!! LOVE this card - to bits and pieces!! Hugs~c

  7. Super, super cute! The little critter is just so adorable and in combination with the hearts and sentiment… someone is going to love receiving this card. (And probably frame it! lol)
    Thanks for playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches :)

  8. Amazing card. I love simplicity :)

  11. I love this card! What a super clever use of the sketch! Thank You for playing with us at Unscripted Sketches last week!

  12. Perfect!! I was going to play along with this sketch but I was going to use exactly the shapes on the sketch - absolutely zero creativity on my part! I LOVE what you have done!

  13. This is just sooooo cute! I love the hamster holding the heart... and I'll think I'll have my hamster holding something too!
