Deconstructed Sketch #76

2012 Faves

 If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you know I just love making round cards.  Therefore, when I saw this fabulous Deconstructed Sketch, I just had to play along :)

I'm still in love with making folded trees, and this time round, I found some double sided designer paper that worked perfectly for what I needed.  A nice little trio was created and became the focal panel of the card.   Again, the tutorial for these can be found here.   They are quick and easy and loads of fun to make.  Worth giving them a try.  Was even thinking of showing my kids how to make them so they can put them on their teacher's Christmas cards.

Doing a happy dance because today is Friday and it has been a very long week...  Good news is, there is  Verve release party tonite and that is a great way to start the weekend.  If you want to join in on the fun, here is the link to the party forum on SCS.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and I'll be back later tonite, or tomorrow morning depending on which time zone you are in, with my Just Us Girls card.

Bye for now :)
