FMS124 & CTD280


Phew, it’s Friday!  YAY!  I am hoping this week is on its way to settling down!  I have had this card made for two days and haven’t had a chance to post it!  It uses the Color Throwdown colors for this week:

and the Freshly Made Sketches sketch from Karren:

Now, in my haste, I totally missed that the sentiment was supposed to be at the TOP LEFT…but I am submitting it anyway and since I love the three panels sketch, I may just do another one!  I need to bulk up my birthday card supply!  So here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Birthday Wishes Card Gingham Wheel Stampin Up

I stamped the three panels with the Gingham Wheel, and added an embossed background (which is difficult to see), a couple of stars and a little denim doodad, finished off with some candy dot brads.  I had most of these supplies already on my desk from my last card, LOL! 


I unmounted my Gingham Wheel and adhered it to some clear-mount cling foam (you can find this on page 197 of the current SU catalog) to make it a bit easier to use.  Now off to run some errands!  But first, a little Cassidy pic getting her creative on:





and cutting (we’re still working on scissors skills, LOL!):


Enjoy your day!


  1. Love the gingham and the stars. Great card and WOW I want your ink and refill holder.

  2. The gingham looks warm and cozy LeAnne, cute card! Love Cassidy's tiny hand handling the spritz bottle, so sweet!

  3. Wow look at Cassidy go. She is learning to be a great card maker like her Grammy. So sweet.
    I like this masculine card today. I really like the plaid/gingham. I need to make a bday card for DH for next Wed and this has truly inspired me. Thanks for that:)

  4. The gingham is so sweet........and Cassidy looks so,grown up!

  5. Love the darling card and love the picture of an artist in training!

  6. I love what you've done with my sketch, LeAnne - and don't worry about the sentiment placement! Those gingham panels look fab in those colors!

  7. Ooh yep she's hook !! So cute ,
    Love your card MsLeeAnn

    Hugs frenchie ,

  8. She is going to be ready to teach your classes for your very soon. So cute.
    Love the card. The Gingham Wheel is fun. I have a gingham stamp and I do love it. This is a fun card.
    Have a great weekend.

  9. Fabulous card LeAnne!!! She is just way too Adorable :)

  10. So fun! Love the different colored gingham panels. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown! The kindergarten teacher in me loves to see that Cassidy is practicing her cutting skills!

  11. Cassidy is proving that you're never too young to start stamping! She'll be winning contests before you know it :). The Allentown stamp show is early this year--March 15th. Are you thinking of going?

  12. Love this, LeAnne. Appropriate for guys or girls but definitely a great masculine card. Love the stars, too!

  13. I've always admired that gingham wheel and just adore this card. Now that I hear that you've unmounted your wheel I'm totally intrigued because I can't use those wheels for a darn. Was it hard to do?

  14. Great card LeAnne! I love that gingham! Looks so fun! Those stars are so sweet! I always forget to mount my candy dots on the brads!!!! You are so patient with Cassidy! My boys walk in my craft room and I cringe...partly because it's probably a safety hazard most days!!!!! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  15. Gorgeous card, LeAnne! Love those gingham panels and the star embellies! Always love seeing your creations in the CTD gallery!

  16. Wonderful card and Cassidy is a sweetie!! I totally missed the sentiment in the upper left too!! Thxs for joining us at CTD!!
