Another Sketch A Day layout and a card

First, I want to share a card that I created for the ribbon challenge over at UYS. I used some old paper and stickers that I purchased in a slab at my local Walmart sometime last year. I keep telling myself not to by slabs of paper because it lasts for freakin' evah - and what do I do? I buy more paper! (roll eyes). This particular slab of paper is from Colorbox and the colors are so bright and vibrant - just perfect for these winter blues. Anywho, the challenge was to use ribbon in a creative way so I chose to use ribbon for the balloon streamers. Hope you like.
Deets: Card base: Halcraft. Pattern Paper and Stickers: Colorbox.
Accessories: balloon dies (Sizzix). Buttons and Ribbon: craft supply. Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities: Spellbinders.


Second, is a 11x8.5 layout I created for the Sketch A Day Club. I love, love, love this picture of Lulu wearing her Santa hat. Ain't she a cutie! Deets: Cardstock: Stampin' Up. Pattern Paper and Letter Stickers: Basic Grey (Blitzen). Stamps: Studio G. Rubons: Creative Imaginations and The Paper Studio. TFL.

I know just what you mean about buying more paper...and jewels...and ribbon... and... Sometimes I think I am a collector more than a crafter! And I love, love, LOVE that photo of Lulu! However did you get her to lay still enough with that hat on? Amber would have been shaking it to death!
