Snowy Days and a Snowman

Sassy Cathy is the hostess for this Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. Thank you ladies for making it a two week challenge. With Christmas, I REALLY needed the extra time. The theme was for Snow, but there was a second challenge to use a Snowman. The winner of the random selection wins two free images from the Sassy Cheryls Store. Now how can you pass up on that, especially when there are such fabulous Snowmen in the Sassy Cheryl Store.

This image is called Twiggy Snowman, and this one is the first image I colored with Prismacolor Pencils under the tutelage of Sassy Judy at SCamp in October. The image came in really handy since I'm to the last minute getting my card made.

I used the sketch from  this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge, and designed the layout with my Silhouette Design Studio software doing a print and cut for the parts. The polka dot paper is from the Cocoa Paisley Damask digital kit from Dotted Daisy.

Well, it may be the last day of the challenge, but at least I'm going to make it before noon instead of at the last minute.

Christmas and New Babies

We had a two week Show Me Thursday this time around on Show Me Thursday Blog hosted by Sassy Cheryl, and I needed the extra time, as it's been a bit hectic here to say the least. DH and I hosted our annual Open House.

These pictures are of the goodies that I fixed for the Open House. I baked 42 small loaves of sour dough bread and what we didn't eat I gave away. The tins and buckets on the tables have cookies, sugar-cinnamon  almonds and pecan brittle. In the outdoor refrigerator is the tins of Tiger Butter, Fudge and Peppermint Bark. The plastic tub has Pudding candy and there are dips in there.

This year I decorated myself, so it didn't happen until Christmas Eve, so these are the pictures of the the mantle, coffee table and my Fontanini Nativity on the washstand in my dining room.

These pictures are of the tables in the breakfast room and dining room just before the company arrived.

During all the preparations for the party, I took a day out to babysit my niece's 2 year old so that his Grandmother could be at the hospital while my niece delivered his little sister. Here's a picture I made of Lucy Ann this morning in the Christmas gown I made for her.

So that's just a little of what I've been doing. Christmas is completely put away, and I for one am ready to get back to some crafting. How about you?

Show Me Thursday

It's almost past time for my Show Me Thursday post for the Sassy Cheryl SMT Blog. It's where those of us that are truly interested in what others having going on in their lives(some folks would say we're nosey).  If you're selected you wind a free Sassy Cheryl's image. There's no way to lose.

I took these pictures last Friday. My DH does almost nothing to get ready for our Open House on Christmas night. I say almost, because he does one thing and that's get rid of some of the leaves. Our house is truly in a grove of oak trees, and the leaves are a major thing. There's no raking them a little along, you're body would wear out before the leaves stopped falling. So when all the leaves have finally fallen off the trees, DH gets out and rakes them far enough away from the house, that he can use the blade on the tractor to "rake" or make that drag them off deeper into the woods.

Last night we were invited into cousin of DH's for a Christmas gathering. i had never been to their home before, and I have to say that it was a trip. To start with their driveway is across the top a dam between two lakes. A bit hairy to say the least.  The house sits right on the edge of the lake(think a 4' strip of grass).  The outside of the house was lit up with icicle lights. In the formal living room was a pencil tree decorated with fairy ornaments. The picture I took was a total blur. This first picture is of the wall between the living room and the hall to the back door. Totally awesome.

Then in the family room was what she called her Menagerie tree. It's her favorite tree as it's decorated with ornaments that she's created over the years. What was really cool is that it revolved. I'm still trying to figure out how the wires don't get all twisted up.

To the right of the tree was this arrangement of Christmas village pieces. Thinking about getting all that out and putting it back up, makes me tired. It also reminds me I better do a bit more decorating before my Open House.

Thanks for stopping by.

What We Do for Love

This week's challenge on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog is feeling the love. For entering the challenge you get a chance at winning two Sassy Cheryl images. Talk about a win/win situation.

I took more of a snarky approach to theme. I may be sixty-two, married for thirty-four years, but I was almost twenty-eight when I married, so there was lots of dating before I found my "Prince". This image from Sassy Cheryl's Store called Avery Finds Her Prince, reminded me of all those frogs I kissed.  I colored her with my Faber Castells.

The papers are from a digital kit from Just So Scrappy 2 called I Toadily Love You, as is the frog clip art.. I sketch is this week's sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketch. The sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

It's been a few weeks since I got to enter a challenge, so I'm really happy to be getting this done today. Tomorrow is going to be all about decorating for Christmas, so it was today or not.

Thanks for stopping by.

All About Me

It's almost time again for the end of this week's Show Me Thursday Blog post that the fabulous Sassy Cheryl sponsors each week. Although I have been working on several things that I could have showed you all, I thought I'd make you all jealous with what I did today. It was a ALL ABOUT ME DAY.

Started out with a walk with my walking buddy and another friend. So this is a picture of me at the end of the walk. Temps were at freezing this morning, and I was extremely chilly to start with, but you'll notice I'm halfway out of my mittens by walk's end. That checked the exercise off my list of things to do(trying to keep my self mobile and healthy). Now it's on to much more fun things.

Last year, my niece opened Vitality Spa in Starkville, MS, and my bestest friend gave me a gift certificate. Well this was the week to use it, so today I went for first a 30 minute facial followed by an hour long massage. The experience was incredible. Have to say I was a bit worried about being cold since outside temps have dropped, but the massage tables are heated and both the therapists were beyond competent. This first picture is of me with a masque applied to my face during the facial portion of the morning.

This second picture is of Betty working her magic on my tight shoulders.

 I'm now trying to figure out how I can do this once a month or at least every 6 weeks. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to be still for that long, but believe me it wasn't a problem. In fact it was kind of like Savasana in yoga, when I dread her ringing the bells to tell me time is up, and I have to leave.

I wish all my friends lived close enough to have these facilities available.

As bad as my house needs cleaning, I am not going to mess my day up by laboring and ruining the effects of the massages. Instead, I'm going to continue to indulge myself with play time in TazMania.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Sketch Challenge for Sassy Cheryls

Thank you Jackie for the sketch challenge for this week on the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog. As usual, I'm to the last minute getting something created. With a sketch provided, it was one less thing than my overloaded brain had to deal with.

I have actually had this image colored for a couple of weeks. It's called the Tree Trimmers and can be found at the Sassy Cheryl's store HERE. I was practicing with my PrismaColor pencils, so no Copics on this one. WOOHOO!!!!

I of course laid out the card using my Silhouette Cameo(and no I don't own stock in the company, but it's one of the most versatile and easy to use machines on the market IMHO). The papers are from Just So Scrappy 2's Santa Baby kit. The holly strips and the poinsettia are cut files from the Silhouette Online Store. I broke the strip into layers in order to color the leaves and the berries. I copied a couple of the leaves and berried and resized them for my corner embellishment.

Now off to clean up the super mess I created just trying to get this card put together.

A Change in Direction

Well it's time for another Show Me Thursday post for the Sassy Cheryls Show Me Thursday Blog. What a fun way to share what you have going on

This past week was of course Thanksgiving, and you would have thought that with eating at three different  places, I could have just shown pictures from that. However, I either forgot to take the camera or the card that goes in the camera, so no pictures of delicious food.

I also didn't take pictures of me cleaning house, because NO ONE wants photos of me cleaning toilets.

A few months ago I went with my niece to a flea market where they had some baby gowns made from a onesie. She was going to buy one, but I told her that I could make one for practically nothing. Well, after seeing my niece on Friday night, I decided I better get busy, because I really think Lucy Ann isn't going to wait until Dec. 23.

I found instructions for this online, and then more or less did my own thing. One of my dear friends monogrammed it for me. It only took a couple of hours start to finish, and you'll notice I even have a matching hair bow up at the neck.

Come on out Lucy Ann. Aunt Shirley's all ready to snuggle and play.

Thanks and/or Food at Sassy Cheryls

This week's Sassy Cheryls Challenge on the blog was set by Sassy Jeni. With this past week having been Thanksgiving, it's the perfect time to show our thanks. Certainly I'm thankful to my neighbor and crafting buddy, especially for inviting my DH and me to her house to share in Thanksgiving with her family.

Thanksgiving Day was also my neighbor's birthday( I really think there's something wrong with doing all that cooking on your birthday), so it was a perfect reason to get my challenge card made early, because what would a birthday be without cake? I actually gave it to her on her birthday, I just haven't taken the time to blog it.

The image is called Avery Celebrates with Cake. She's colored with Copics, PrismaColor Pencils and Faber Castell Polychromos. 

The digital paper is from Shery K Designs  Party Time 20 Kit. The cupcakes and the sentiments are silhouette cut files.

Thanks for stopping by.

100 Show Me Thursday Post

It's hard for me to believe that Sassy Cheryl has been nosing around for 100 weeks to see what folks have going on in their crafting life or in life in general.  It's been 100 weeks of fun and getting acquainted and making new friends all over the world. I love seeing folks' cards, but I love even more getting a glimpse of where they live or what there every day life might entail.  For sharing a part of your life with Sassy Cheryl, and with the rest of us that hang out at her SMT blog, you have the chance at winning a free Sassy Cheryl image, and oh are there ever some great ones in the Sassy Cheryl Store. I have to say, that as much fun as it is to win, I love checking in to see what folks have going on.

I know that one thing is for sure for all of us, every day is not just crafting. Life has a tendency to get in the way of even our best laid plans. That's been my week this week. It started out with trips to the airport in Birmingham on Monday and Tuesday. Monday was to take DD, DGD and MM back for their flight home, and Tuesday was to take my niece to the airport after a weekend visit to her parents. Once that was behind me, I thought the rest of the week was mine. NOT SO. Remember Robert Burns best laid plans?

My first project and the only one that was planned was to replace the pitiful paper screen I tacked to the wall, for use with my projector. For SCamp, I tacked some not so white newsprint up to make a screen. This would have been a super easy project if I could have found a 60" wide roll up  shade(the perfect projection screen), but it seems they don't make them anymore. Instead I had to take a 37 1/2" wide one off the roll, add grommets and then some of those 3M hooks. It works, and will be great when I'm demonstrating something with the computer, so folks aren't having to look over my shoulder and follow me.

Today is the opening day of Deer season with a rifle, and my DH along with brothers, nephews and great nephews are covering the deer stands in the "bottom"(property along Tibbee Creek owned by DH and his siblings). With 11 stands, and a lot more hunters than that, it's especially important that folks know whose hunting and where. DH had converted a chalkboard in my kitchen that we've been using, but this year he built another stand, and there was NO ROOM to add to it. So with an old bulletin board with a metal plate, I created a new hunting board that is now hanging in my garage. It's the check in point before they go hunting. I sprayed the board several times with  Blackboard Spray thus creating a blackboard surface that can be erased for their names. I then did a Print and Cut with my Cameo of all the stands by name(the stories of how they got their names is a story in and of itself). I glued them to the board and then Modge Podged(humidity is tough here) over just them(you should be able to see the lines). I still have to add a chalk holder(an old fork with the inner two twines twirled up, but DH has tied the chalk to a string and nailed the string to the board in the meantime. There's even room at the bottom to write in portable stands.

I thought that was going to be the only project outside my plans, but again I was proved wrong. BFF came by on Wednesday with a happy for me from their last road trip. I was finally able to give her her birthday card(made on time, but not mailed or delivered) and told her I was still pondering her gift. She had a project for me, that she assured me would count for her birthday and her Christmas. See I'm already liking how this is sounding. She is an unbelievable cook(my SCamp buddies can attest  to this), and if you think I'm non-stop, you should see her go. She has spent the summer putting up pickles, preserves and jellies to give away in between cooking lunches and taking to the ladies at the nursing home and cakes to any and everyone. What she wanted was  lid labels custom made for her. Did you see my eyes light up? Of course you did, because you know  I immediately thought of my Cameo and Print and Cut.  I worked up the basic label, and then only had to change the product in them. I designed them while watching(or should I say listening to TV on Wednesday night). It took me less than 3 hours to print and cut over 500 of them. I still have to run most of them through my Xyron sticker maker(ran out of tape), but that's something I can do while the TV is blasting away.

Finally this week I got in an order of PrismaColor Pencils and I have some Faber Castell's on the way. I needed a way to store them, so when I was at Walmart this week, I found this metal jar holder with a carrying handle and these perfectly sized pencil cups. I created dividers in the cups and sorted somewhat by colors. I have two for the Prismas and two for the Fabers. I probably won't be adding a lot more colors so this should give me plenty of space.  I think it will work, don't you?

I did finally get to create a card yesterday and even got it blogged before this post, so maybe I'm back on schedule. If you made it through all of this, you're probably wishing I'd just post pictures and shut up with the yakking. At any rate, that's my week thus far. Now I was up at 4 this morning cooking the Opening Day breakfast for the hunters( a tradition that I can't seem to get out of), and now I'm on my way to TM to play.

Belated Birthday

This week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog, Sassy Jeni has set the challenge for a belated birthday project. Since I am forevermore running behind, I'll be sticking this card in my stash, since it's not a matter of if but when I'll be late with a card.(don't you love this run on sentence) I hated like everything missing last week's challenge, but I'm back and even earlier than Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. What's Up With That?

For this week's card, I chose this image from the Sassy Cheryl's store called Samantha Cops an Attitude. Can you really blame her, when she knows she's messed up and missed a birthday. You are going to be surprised to hear that I colored this image with PrismaColor Pencils. Sassy Judy of the SC DT gave us all coloring lessons at SCamp a few weeks ago. That said, I had to wait for pencils to come in and lots of water has flowed under the bridge since those instructions. Any coloring errors are mine and mine alone.

The papers are from Shery K Designs Party Time 20 digital kit, and the sketch is from the Operation Write Home site.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Very Busy Family Crafting Weekend

Here at my house, there's a lull in the storm of a family visit. Our oldest DD, her daughter and younger DD's son, MM flew into Birmingham last Thursday for a long weekend. They've been here and keeping me and DH both busy with visiting and projects, but they've gone out to dinner with some family and DH and I opted to stay at home. While they're gone, I'm going to get my SMT post done for the Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday Blog.

One of the things that we had to do was get MM dirt and flint from the "Bottom" for a presentation he has to do on Tuesday when he gets back to school on Native Americans. His presentation is on he and his Grandpa searching for arrowheads. This is something they do every time he comes for a visit, so it's a good thing for his project. He has to take a paper sack with 4 items that are in his presentation. This necessitated a trip to fill a bag with dirt.

Another thing on DD#2's lists of things for us to do was to go and see his Great Aunt Boo and get a picture with her. She's DH's oldest sister and sibling, and her DH passed away recently.

DGD is expecting a baby boy the end of January, and she had some projects that she wanted us to work on. The first was a canvas wall hanging that will also hang on the door at the hospital. I let her do all the painting and gluing. My job was just to cut out all the pieces and help her with the layout. I love the way it turned out and it matches her nursery, which is a monster theme.

Then yesterday she showed me a canvas she saw on Etsy with a saying that she loved, so I spent the better part of today getting it done. Had to stencil the letters on using a dauber and several black pigment inkpads. I love the way this one turned out.

We head back to the airport tomorrow to drop them off, and then lucky me, I get to go again on Tuesday to take my niece  to the airport for her trip home. Her DM is having foot surgery, and her DF, thinks since they're putting the DM to sleep, he might better hang around. It's okay, because I'm meeting a dear friend for lunch and a visit.

I've only given you a bit of what was happening here, but needless to say, it was enough. Now let's see what you're working on and be sure to post it on the Show Me Thursday Blog for a chance at a free image. This is a true WIN WIN situation.

SMT 98 - Experimenting with my Cameo

It's almost too late to post an SMT post for the week, but I think I'll just squeak under the wire today.
I mean how easy is it to take a picture of what you've got going on in your life, blog it and enter it in the SMT challenge on the Sassy Cheryl Blog(not the challenge blog) for a chance of a free image from Sassy Cheryl. Hey I won last week, so if I can win, anybody can win.

I could have taken a picture of the housecleaning I've been doing, but who really cares about that? Instead I want to show you what I've been doing with my Cameo.

When we were SCamping, Judy of JDK fame showed us how to use scalloped circles to cut a cloud template in cardstock. She said it was wear out over time, but it would be super easy to create another one. Cec, was interested in cutting masks for stamping, so while at Scamp we cut some chicken wire masks using mylar and transparency material. They worked fine for Judy, but Cec thought they needed to be thicker. Yesterday when I was out I bought a 3 pack of blank stencil material at Walmart in the hobby paint section.

Today, I decided to have a go at cutting a cloud template out of the material. First thing I did was open my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software and and bring in two different scalloped circle patterns that I had downloaded from the Silhouette store.

Next I duplicated them spacing them in different way, drawing a rectangle and then merging it all so that I had a template with two different sided scallops.

For the cutting of the stencil material, I set my Media type to Custom Media, speed to 2, blade depth to 10(be sure you change it to that on the actual blade), check the cutting mat and double cut blocks.

I placed the stencil material on my Silhouette mat and taped it down so that it would be secure and then proceeded to cut. I used the same blade that we had cut a half dozen mylar templates from, plus some paper and even then with the depth and double cut, the template popped right out.

Here's a picture of clouds I made using the template.

And here's a picture of the finished template with ink on both sides. It cleaned up uber easy with a baby wipe. Don't think this template will be wearing out any time soon.

I LOVE MY CAMEO. In the words of Jeanne Robertson, "IT'S FAAB-U-LOUS!"

Round About at Sassy Cheryls

Well it's been a couple of weeks since I participated in a challenge, but I'm back and glad to be here. Even better, I found out that starting next week, you have to use a Sassy Cheryls image in the Sassy Cheryls Challenge. HOORAY! I'm behind that 100%. If you think about it, it's the only thing to do. After all, if an artist is generous enough to give away a free image on HER challenge blog, isn't it only polite that you use one of her images to begin with.  It's kind of like that old saying "You got to dance with the one what brung you."

This week's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge is Round About meaning do anything that isn't square or rectangular. For my challenge this week, I needed a birthday card for my BFF, Bess. I'm a wee bit late, but she won't hold it against me. I used this image called Sassy Sally and Her Oversized Birthday Cake. I've colored her with my Copics.

The cupcake paper is a from a digital kit from Shery K Designs called Cupcakes. I created all shapes with my Silhouette Software and print and cut all parts. The rolled roses are thanks to a tutorial from  my good friend Judy at Sassy Camp last week. I don't have it perfected, but I'm getting there.

Thanks for stopping by, and it sure feels good to be back.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012


As you have probably read on some other posts, we had a gathering of some of the Sassy Cheryl's PCP group this past week at my camphouse. I can't begin to tell you how much fun we had. We had tutorials in Prisma Pencils, Word Art creation, Shabby Chic card making, and using the Cameo to name a few. We also created a scrapbook Cookbook thanks to some unbelievable effort on the part of Terri Dunnewin.  I hate you all can't have a copy of it, because it's going to be a treasured keepsake for me.

Oh and I forgot to mention the food, which was absolutely awesome. Cec loves to cook, and we let her.

We had an absolutely FAAB-U-LOUS time. Here are some pictures that were made during the week of fun.

It's A Birthday Challenge and It's a Good Thing

This week's challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is to create a Birthday project. Man did this one ever work for me. I've actually had the card made for a week, but I'm so busy getting ready for my camps including the FIRST EVER SASSY CHERYL SCAMP, that I almost forgot to blog it.

For once I'm not using a Sassy Cheryl image, and  I promise you there's a very good reason. Here's the story behind the card. This card is for my 1st cousin once removed( my first cousin's daughter). According to her, I'm her other mother. We started eating out with them on Friday night's shortly after she arrived in this world.  One of our favorite places to eat was a diner called Buck and Helen's. You placed your order at the front, they would give you a ticket with your order number on it.  When your meal was ready they would call your number.

She had a very active imagination, and after dinner each week, we would go back to their home, where she would play pretend. When Peggy was about 4, she loved to play restaurant when we'd get back to the house. She'd take our orders, then go create our meal with her plastic food. Then she'd call our number. For some unknown reason. she always called TWEEENNNNTY-ONNNNEEE in a slow Southern drawl.

This image is from Marjies Malarkies. I've had it for years and knew exactly what I was going to do with it. Peggy turned 21 this past Saturday, so this was her Birthday Card. Someone asked me if she would get it? I have it from her mother that not only did she get it,  but so did her roommates with whom she must have shared the story.

The papers are from Shery K Designs Cupcake Kit and scraps.

And that's the rest of the story. Thanks for stopping by.

Let Me Show You My Neighbor's Place

It's time for another Show Me Thursday Post for the Sassy Cheryl's Blog. Just for showing what's going on in your world(and it doesn't have to be what you're working on either), you're entered to win a SC image. Not to mention you get  a chance to see what your fellow crafters are doing.

This week, my walking buddy is on vacation. While she's gone, I'm taking care of the animals along with watering the porch plants(this one might have been a mistake as I have a totally brown thumb). The animals consist of Jack, the deaf cat. I go down in the morning, feed him and let him out of the garage and then have to go back each afternoon to put in for the night. Since he can't hear, anything could get him. I also feed the ducks. There were three ducks to start with, but now there are only two and a bunch of feathers by the water. Now you know why I'm putting Jack in the garage every night.

My neighbor has a woodpile right beside the garage and there is the most awesome growth of cosmos. I think she just through out some seeds and they came up. I could have purposely planted them and never gotten these kind of results.

And here's a close-up of one of the flowers.

We've had fog the last couple of mornings. When there's a fog, you get the most amazing few of the spider webs that are on the ground. They almost look like white flowers. In this first picture, if you look down in the bottom left corner, you can see some spider web flowers.

This second picture is a close up on one of the webs. Pretty amazing isn't it.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you ever come to see me and you want to see flowers, I'll take you to her house.

Let's Think About Fall

Believe me, I've been more than thinking about it. I've been  praying for it, and I think it's finally arrived. Our leaves are finally starting to turn, and we've even had some temps down in the 40's at night. And what does this have to do with a card making blog you ask? It seems that the challenge this week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is to create a Fall card.  Since I just sent off a box of fall cards to OWH, and the fact that I didn't have time, there's only one card this week.

This cute image is called Sally Swings, and she can be found at the Sassy Cheryl's Store. Personally I call her Sally Swings into Fall with those blowing leaves. She's colored with Copics.Cheryl's got a 30% off sale today in honor of Columbus Day, so rush right on over. She's got the cutest Sally Turkey image you ever did see.

The papers are from two kits from Little Cherries at Shery K Designs called Thanksgiving and Fall. Shery K Designs has all their digital kits on sale Oct. 8 -10 for 60% off. Since she has the most reasonably priced digital papers out there, this is a chance for a steal. 10 paper packs for $1 that you can print over and over again. Tell me how you can lose?

The sketch is this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches. I missed the deadline for posting, but I loved the sketch.

Off to get this posted and then I have to go to the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by.

Almost out of Time for SMT

Time is running out for my SMT post for the Sassy Cheryl Blog, so I decided I better get off my duff and get my post done. It's not that I haven't been doing anything, just the opposite. The deadlines for OWH Christmas cards is October 31. I have two camps coming up that start on Oct. 17 and go through Oct. 29. I need time in front for some prep for camp, so I've spent the last week filling up my box going out to OWH. I have one more set of cards to make, and I'll be good to go.

So here are the cards I've created since last Thursday.  All card parts were created with the Silhouetted Design Studio Software and then print and cut with my Cameo. Can I tell you how much I love this machine?
CASEd from Card Creations Volume 10. Paper was created using the text function of the Silhouette Software.

This card is CASEd fro a card I saw in  magazine. The light bulb is a Silhouette Cut file.
Card Sketch from CAS. Papers and elements from Nitwit Collections Giddy Up kit.
Sketch was from Card Creations Volume 10. The papers are elements are all from Just So Scrappy 2's digital kit Santa Baby. 

Papers and elements from Nitwit Collections Lodge Creek Collection.

CASEd from Card Creations Volume 10. Paper patterns are mostly fill patterns from Silhouette.

CASED from a magazine. The crayons are an free svg file from Cutfiles.Net.
The Dahlias are a Silhouette cut file that I simple duplicated and print out instead of cutting. The paper rainbow strip was created with the fill Cased from July 2012 CardMaker.
Also CASED from the July 2012 CardMaker Magazine. The dotted shape was created by printing a rhinestone pattern from Silhouette and the ladybug was created using an element from Just So Scrappy 2's Ladybug Kit.
This is my box almost full of cards. One more set of standard A2's and the oversized cards in front will go on top.
