Sew lovely to meet Amy...and a challenge!


I'm so excited to be introducing my good friend Amy of Tsuruta Designs to you! I "met" Amy through Card Patterns last year and she's the sweetest bloggy friend to have! Seriously! I'm sure many people can attest to that! :) If you are a cardmaker, you've probably seen Amy's amazing work...especially her skills with mixing and matching patterned paper...She's here to share her Material Girl Sew Lovely card and issue us a challenge.... with an amazing prize for one lucky person! You have to read on to find out more...;)

 First, let's admire some of Amy's lovely creations!



*******************************
Hey there!
My name is Amy and the fabbie Yvonne has asked me to be her Guest Blogger here on 'Do More with Less'.  I couldn't be more thrilled that Yvonne took the time to ask me...I truly am continuously inspired by her work!
A little bit about me...I work full time in Finance, have 2 beautiful kids and I'm blissfully engaged to thee most wonderful man! 
 
I would describe my style as fresh & fun.  I love color and patterns!!!  I'm a huge fan of paper pads...preferrably the 6x6 version {perfect for card making}.  They make mixing and matching colors and patterns a slam dunk!


I made this "Material Girl Sew Lovely" card especially for today's post which is inspired by the 2s4y sketch #55.  It incorporates a total of 5 different patterned papers.  The Cosmo Cricket Material Girl 6x6 paper pad made it so easy...3 of those patterns are from that pad!  I used the 12x12 Material Girl tape measure paper and the Lawn Fawn dressfrom image has been paper pieced with a monochromatic heart pattern paper by Pink Paislee. 

Are you up for a challenge??!!! 
How about you create a card that uses at least 3 different patterned papers....link your card to this post and I'll have Yvonne draw a random entry using random.org.  Want a little more motivation?!!!  How about I send that winner a $15 Two Peas in a Bucket gift certificate??!!!!! 
 
Thanks so much for taking the time to read about me:)  I hope that you'll join me in my challenge....I can't wait to see what you design!

************************

 Ahhh...isn't she sweet? So link up your creations in the comment section of this post. Is two weeks enough to get you to make something?? ;) July 15 11.59 pm PDT is the deadline!

As always, please leave a little love for my guest! :)

P/s: I'll add a tab on my blog for this challenge so that it will be easier to find it when you need to link up...:)
