The Others

Since it was my first month on the Practicing Creativity team, I had to be a bit of an over-achiever. So I made a couple of extra cards with "For The Love of Grids" I'd like to share today.  On this first card, I used the grids along with the Everyday Prints set from November:
I stamped the sentiment frame with white pigment ink then heat embossed with clear powder. I used my last scrap of Bazzill kraft with the white ink to stamp the grid and dots. Here I used it with a sentiment from Look Up! Additions from December:

For this one, I cut out alternating squares of the grid and wove some patterned paper through. Again I stamped with the white ink then heat embossed with the clear powder. Here's the set:

It went on sale last night & you can pick one up right here.

So yesterday was a pretty interesting day. Isn't it funny how some days, weeks go by...nothing happens, then all of the sudden, all kinds of things happen in one day. Some amazing things (which I'll be able to reveal in the spring) some bizarre (family related weirdness that I wish would just go away) & some just plain cool stuff (like the new iPhone 4 32 gig that is heading my way next week - point me to the App shop! LOL).
Tomorrow I've got my Twisted Card for this week, and the spare...see you then! Happy Friday!
