Throwback Thursday AND a SNEAKIE!!!

Hiya it's Throwback Thursday time again and this time we have the above sketch to follow. AND this is a CRICUT-LESS challenge. We're taking is waaaaayyyy back this week. ;) I even used some paper and embellies that I have had FOREVER!!! Here is my card...
The sentiment is from the So Grateful For You set by Emma. I used the double loops Martha Stewart punch around the page set to make my scalloped square. All the patterned paper and embellies are from the ancient collection called Sabrina from Making Memories. ;)
OH, and the butterflies are from the 3 in 1 butterfly punch also from Martha Stewart crafts. So pop over to Emma's BLOG to see what the other ladies made and to play along so you can WIN!!! ;)

AND HERE IS TODAY'S SNEAK PEEK!!!!
This is just a simple little notepad that I love making with scraps. The fabulous Leah Fung had this idea and you can see her awesome video tutorial HERE. The "notes" stamp is from the soon to be released {tomorrow!!!} set called Honey Do List. Here is is open ...
Cruddy pic, sorry.

Make sure to comment here and on Emma's BLOG to WIN WIN WIN!!! ;)

♥ Nikki ♥

    Sometimes I'm in need of a card so quickly that I don't have time to use my Cricut. Those times are few and far between. I always feel as though it's missing something if I don't Cricut. (Can that be used as a verb?) Your card is just perfect, though! I love the notepad, too!

  51. Love your card and notebook. The paper on the notebook is cool! I am so psyched for tomorrow. I can't wait....I know I am going to LOVE this whole set!
