Lime Tart Cards

Finally, I've made some cards with the leftovers from my Lime Tart March kits.....

Now, as you know, I'm not a card maker - so some serious inspiration was required....

So, off to a site I frequent regularly (though, don't participate), Laura Davis and Kazan Clark's "2 Sketches 4 You" at www.2sketches4you.blogspot.com

I traced back to their March sketches (seemed appropriate) and went to work....


This is Kazan's Sketch 21 from 2nd March '09, using Little Yellow Bicycle papers from the March A La Tarte kit leftovers....






Next up is Laura's Sketch 21 from 9th March '09, using Pink Paislee, Pop Fashion papers from the March Half Tart kit....











Next is Kazan's Sketch 22 from 16th March using Pink Paislee, Pop Fashion again....









Next Laura's Sketch 22 from 23rd March, using Basic Grey, Marrakech papers from the March Full Tart kit....










Next is Kazan's Sketch 23 from 30th March, using Pink Paislee, Pop Fashion, again....







And, last, but not least, is a bonus sketch, from the same site, by Berdien Weideveld, March 30th, using Little Yellow Bicycle again.....
Berdien's own site is www.scrapfrombemmel.blogspot.com







And there you have it, six cards from scraps leftover from the layouts from the Lime Tart March kits.....
I actually had fun making them, but don't think I will change my allegiance - I am a scrapbooker, not a cardmaker.....
However, I do admire the many cardmakers out there, their sites far outnumber the scrapbookers.....
And it was visiting these cardmakers blogs that I got the inspiration to decorate the inside of the cards as well as the front, it does kinda finish them off.....
So, thank you all the cardmakers out there for your inspiration, especially Laura Davis, Kazan Clark and Berdien Weideveld.....
I might have another bash at cards with the leftovers from the April kits - if I ever get the layouts done first!!!!! LOL.....
Thank you so much for dropping in, til next time.....
