Just Cards! Summer 2008

Just a quick post with a little "hooray!" What a surprise to get this copy of Volume 10 (Summer 2008) Just Cards! magazine. I submitted a bunch of cards several months ago and was tickled to find that seven of them ended up in this issue! Whohoo!

Sensational Sketches at Caardvarks!

It's new challenge time at Caardvarks! We have teamed up with the two talented ladies who run the 2 Sketches 4 You blog. The card above was created from a sketch by Laura Davis who is also a 'Varks DT member. I just love using that new Sizzix branches and birds die. Thanks to my buddy Carolyn for sending me some die cuts of them!

My second card was created from the sketch by Kazan Clark. I just love the placement of items in this design. It was really fun to work with these sketches. So go create some lovely cards based on one or both of these sketches and link back to this 'Varks post by August 3rd at midnight. The lucky winner will guest design with the 'Varks crew!
