May Sketch for You To Try ~
I chose to make a sweet little baby card #1 because I had the girl already all stamped out and die cut and #2 because it was the first image I saw in my head when I saw the sketch. I also used the current JUGS challenge #138: Inspiration photo. I used the colors, stripes and theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super day! :o) lyss
Just a couple of detail shots

PrintRunner Giveaway ~
Hi there, friends! I was recently contacted by PrintRunner to see if I would like to host a giveaway of their fabulous products on my blog. This offer couldn’t have come at a better time for me! Seriously, about 2 weeks ago I worked an event with a good friend of mine (the one that owns the baby store that sells my cards). She offered to allow me to sell my other cards while I was there helping her man her booth. I got a ton of interest, and a few sales, but mainly I was asked if I had a business card so peeps could contact me later with a special need. I.don’t.have.one. I’ve tried to make them in the past and didn’t like my design or didn’t have ink for the printer or didn’t have the right color paper or whatever! Along comes PrintRunner…
PrintRunner started about 10 years ago on “little more than a small press and a dream.” They now provide all kinds of online printing options like business cards, stickers, bookmarks, postcards, banners, posters, flyers – seriously, the list goes on and on! PrintRunner is offering one of my readers 250 four color standard business cards (color on both sides!). How cool is that?
It’s easy to enter:
1. For one entry, leave a comment on this post
2. For an additional entry, *like* PrintRunner on facebook and leave another comment saying you did this.
This contest will be open until May 27. I will announce a winner on May 28, 2012.
Don't need business cards? Well, enter anyway! What a great way to send *Save the Date* cards or another announcement of some sort. Utilize them for your kid's lawn mowing or baby sitting business, or donate them to your church. Lots of possibilities for these!
Thank you, to PrintRunner, for hosting this giveaway! I will also receive a set of 250 business cards…like I said, couldn’t have come at a better time! Have a super day! lyss
ETA: This giveaway is open to US residents only.

H B 2 U ~
Hello there, friends! I have a quick little post today with a card I’m sneaking in for a challenge. I have also been playing along with my photo a day for May, but I have a Mother’s Day tea in an hour at Z’s school and I haven’t showered yet! Eeekkk!! So I’ll have to come back later to upload those. Anyhow, this is a card I submitted for publication a while back that I was *positive* would be picked up…it wasn’t! Since I haven’t posted it, I thought I’d submit it for the multiple prizes available for the birthday challenge at CAS-UAL Fridays. It’s their birthday this week! Woo Hoo! Happy birthday!!
I used the negative space of the alphabet dies from PTI to add a *texty* sentiment. Yes, that is totally a word! The 2 is from a Cuttlebug alphabet die. The sentiment strips are up on dimensionals and the 2 is glued straight down. Not completely CAS but as close as you’re going to get from this gal right about now. Anyway, I better go hop in that shower! Have a fabulous day!! :o) lyss
