Good Monday Mornin’ Everyone! Noella and I thought it would be fun to rejuvenate Card Sketch #7 with the current CY Design Team in charge of interpretations. Here is the link to the last time the Card Sketch was posted. Several people did interpretations as you can see in the Comments section!
Here’s Card Sketch #7 by our very own Sketch Artist, Noella!
There’s a reason I suggested Sketch #7 as the one to use today. My little boy, Noah, (our baby) turned seven years old a few days ago. So, thinking of Noah’s birthday, I thought it’d be fun to have the DT design from Sketch #7 .
Then, when I searched out and saw the sketch I HAD to laugh!
Coincidence… my little boy’s name is “Noah Adam Scott…” and look at the initials on Sketch #7 that Noella created awhile back for CY!! LOL
Her initials ,of course, but what a funny coincidence! OK, Enough of my stories… LOL…
…On we go to our CY Design Team’s interpretations!
CY Design Team member Jenifer Cowles has created a card that is so gently warm and welcoming!
[Don’t you just adore that row of colourful little houses? So fun & funky! We have small towns that boast this phenomenon here in the Maritimes! More on that later…]
CY Design Team member Beth Price created a card that is soft and so feminine in all its shabby-chic splendour!
[Oh Beth, can you make ME some flowers like that? Gorgeous!! **Big Grin**]
Beth Price went “all out” for us and created a second card, adding some bling and a friendly, winged birdie to the design!
[Someone will SMILE when they receive this sweet card! I did when I saw it! I *heart* the stripes in those colours! ]
CY Design Team member Ann Seleshanko created a unique birthday card, incorporating stitching and a tag into her design!
[I see buttons, and swirls!!! And paisley!! Oh my!! Another creation someone will just LOVE receiving!]
(**Clapping hands energetically**)
As I’m sure you’ll agree , Jenifer, Beth and Ann deserve a BIG round of applause!
Thank you girls, for always being willing to help out with the CY Blog. We had a little gap and you were wonderful about offering your talents to help us with a VERY quick turn-around time! BRAVO to you all for such exceptional work.
Please don’t forget about the CY DT Call! :) Noella and I are looking for Designers AND Guest Designers. ALL welcome to apply. Check the link for info on how to do so!

This morning we’re featuring Carla Robinson, one of the three “sisters” who make the “Sisterhood of Scrap” Blog such a GREAT place to go for inspiration, scrappy tidbits, and design ideas.
Carla was kind enough to send me her bio to share with ya’ll.
“Hi everyone! I am Carla, living in a small town in Newfoundland, Canada with my husband and our 4 wonderful children. I homeschool all of my children; they range in age between 11 and 16 years old. DH runs a recording studio from our home. As a family, we love spending time together.
I started scrapbooking in 2004 after being encouraged by my older sister. My style is fairly simple, I think. I like clean lines, but I also like a bit of doodling and the collage-y look. My inspiration comes mainly from online galleries and from magazines. In my free time, I enjoy reading, sewing and baking.”
About Guest Designing at CY, Carla told me “I am super excited to be doing this :)”
Hey Carla… …Guess what?… WE are super-excited that you are here at Creatively Yours this month! Yahoo!
Here’s a link to Carla’s Blog. It’s called “The Pursuit of Scrappyness!” [LOL! PERFECT name!] Go check out her awesome LOs!
I just have to share a post of Carla’s– it’s about her Scrap Room. Isn’t this GREAT? When are you coming to help me organize MY scrap room, Carla? Awesome job!
Welcome to Creatively Yours!! We’re really glad you’re here!
Here’s Carla’s interpretation of Noella’s Sketch #24… sooo pretty. Lovin’ that stitching!
