365 Cards - Day 70 & 71

What a great weekend!  Craftiness ensued, starting with my first Copic class on Saturday.  What a hoot that was!  After that, I've been practicing my colouring, and making cards.  I've got to get that inventory up.   Last year I sold about a hundred cards - with $4 from each one benefiting the CBCF.  This year, I want to raise at least $500, but I can only do it if I actually have them made!  The 365 Cards challenge keeps me motivated to make at least one card every day...

Day 70 - Super Sketch Sunday

Kraft Cardstock - Paper Source; DP - Anna Griffin; Sentiment - CTMH; Stickles - Lime Green


When I think 20's, I think flappers, the Charleston, and Coco Chanel. Although this picture of Coco was taken in the 40's, the inspiration is flapper with the pearls.

Cardstock - Bazzill Basics; Sentiment - Fiskars; Velvet Flowers - 7gypsies; Pearl Brad - Little Yellow Bicycle; String Pearls - from the stash.

Well, it's off to bed with me... another weekend bites the dust, and it's back to the ol' salt mines tomorrow.  Dang!   

Have a great week - and thanks for poppin' by my blog!

Yup, the Chanel card is out of this world ! How clever to put "pearls" on it, they strike the perfect balance. (How odd to see a cigarette in her fingers, but I do remember seeing photos like that in the past - what were people thinking ???)
