Monday Card Madness #3 and a little Happy Birthday to Kid Steals!

Hooray!  It’s Monday!  I never used to look forward to Monday’s with quite the enthusiasm that I do now.  What’s even more exciting is today is the 1st birthday of KidSteals!  I couldn’t help but turn the focus of today’s card sketch into a birthday card for all of our friends at Kid.  :0)  Today’s steal, the Twirl kit by We R Memory Keepers, worked out PERFECTLY for a little birthday card fun!

I went for a different size of card for this week.  This sketch is for a 5.5 x 5.5″ card.

I know I’ve mentioned it before but the beauty of card making with the We R Memory Keepers papers is the smaller 1/4 size versions of each regular print on the backside of some of the papers.  I love the ‘cuteness’ of the smaller prints for cards.

I probably got a little carried away with making different variations on this weeks sketch, but when a design speaks to you, as well as the product, it’s hard to stop!

I even had a little fun turning this sketch onto it’s side.

Be sure to post your MCM creations on our Facebook Fan page.

Remember that I will be selecting one random winner to receive all of the cards that I make from someone that has created a card, uploaded it somewhere on line and then left a comment on one of the first four MCM blog posts.  Creations and comments need to be made prior to the posting of MCM #5.  Although it’s not required for MCM that you provide us with a link, if you want to it’s a great way for others to have an easy reference for how you interpret the sketch.

Also don’t forget to leave a comment on the Magneticificent blog post by midnight tonight for your chance to receive the ‘recipes’ magnet board that I created!

Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to KidSteals and have fun creating cards with this weeks MCM!

Happy Birthday!

Grab your party hats because it’s our sister site’s 1st birthday!
