The cardstock is all from the Earth Elements selection, which is my favorite set of colours.
Although I am looking forward to the New Colours coming out on WEDNESDAY. Very excited here in Australia.
The instructions are downloadable from this site.

I have used, once again, the Unfrogettable stamp set from Stampin Up.
Although retired, I still enjoy using the frogs, especially for kids cards.
I have even used some of Jersey Shore designer paper, which I might add, is also discontinued. But I have lots of it, so I will keep using it until it is all gone. You never know, by the time I use it all, it may be back.
Here is a side view of the tent card, although upon reflection, not a really good one.
Ink: Old Olive (I use the stamp pad lid and blender pen for colouring)
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Old Olive
DP: Jersey Shore (retired)
Stamp: Unforgettable (retired)

For some reason I have been making a lot of baby cards lately. I think that has something to do with the new releases (available 1st September 2010) of Stampin Up's baby stamps. One of my ladies from class was after a 'twins' card. I made these so she can CASE them. All products I used here are from Stampin Up, and the sentiment on the front of the card, I printed on the computer, changing the last line of text to coordinate with the base colour of the card. Happy Stamping.
The template came from Designer Digitals.
The cardstock also came from Designer Digitals.
I enjoy creating digital pages, there is no mess to clean up, I can change the elements if I need to and I can experiment with different papers until I get the look I am after.
If you can read the date on this page, it is December 2004.
I think I am a little bit behind with my scrapbooking.
Too many cards.......

Even though all the cards are the same, each one has their own personality.
I enjoy using the roller wheels in this manner just as much as using them for backgrounds etc.
I can personally now say, I have another addiction.
I can also say, if you haven't tried a mojo sketch, do it.
I used the Vintage Vogue (Clear stamp set)
Rich Razzleberry cardstock
Old Olive cardstock (Still my favorite)
Cottage Wall Designer Papers
Rich Razzleberry Ink
Rich Razzleberry Ribbon
Naturally, idea came from Mojo Monday.
I can't believe I haven't posted these cards yet.
I made them when the stamps were new and have had them sitting in my craft room for months.
Does that suggest that my craft room is a little bit unorganised?
I guess I know what I am doing today, cleaning my craft room I would say.
I used the goodmorning sunshine designer papers for these cards. I really like this paper, and I think it looks great on little man cards. Nice and bright.
This is the second birthday bot card, using the same designer papers. You can tell by the image, that I hadn't tried the watercolour paper back then. Although I am not sure whether using the watercolour technique would have the same impact.
Another idea just just sprung to mind.
I should have used the little nuts and bolts from this set on my tool cards. Would have worked in rather well. So if anyone is going to CASE these cards, let me know how it goes.
The tutorial for this style of card can be found under the heading tutorials. Although I did alter the width of the side step so I could fit the image of the princess in. Have fun.
