Have You Charisma'd Lately?

Well, have ya? If not why?

This week at Charisma Cardz JoAnne challenged us to a fun sketch. I have to admit I am usually not stumped by sketches but this one, for some reason, had me scratching my head til I started cutting the paper. Once I made that first cut it all just fell into place.


I used stamps I got last spring by The Cat's Pajamas and I just love them!!! I have another 2 sets that I need to get inked up but honestly, I have way too many stamps!!! But yet, I want more!!! I also used papers by BG, a Prima flower and misc cardstock from my stash!

Here are the Copics I used for this:


I almost forgot to post a winner from the Serendipity technique card I posted on the 21st - EmmaH said:

"Love this technique, thanks for sharing the directions. I tried it out and it turned out great! http://paperaddictsanonymous.blogspot.com/2009/07/simple-is-best.html"

Thank you to everyone who played along with me and Emma, if you will email me at craf_t_scrapper@yahoo.com with your mailing address I'll get a little something out in the mail to you!

Thanks for stoppin' by and make sure you head over to Charisma Cardz to join in on the fun we have each week AND check out the fab work by the rest of the DT!!!

hehe great card and image


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
