A Room Without Books…–MFTWSC #106


Hi, everyone, it’s me, back again with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.



I chose to use Bookmark Basics for my card today—I thought it would be a great way to lead up to a gift card on the inside.

After I made my card base, I added a Die-namics Designer Labels STAX 2 die cut, then some swirly bling, and then a Die-namics Oval STAX layer with the sentiment. I did some stitching and then finished it off with a sweet pink seam binding bow.

Here’s the inside using Die-namics Gift Card Pocket – Horizontal and a sentiment from Gift Card Greetings.


And that’s it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. This is simply fabulous! I love the pretty scroll paper, the jewelled flourish and it's one of my very favourite sentiments! And a book token inside - just fantastic!

  2. What a great idea to present a giftcard to a bookstore. Lovely.

  3. Oh Barb I just love this! I had completely forgotten about this quote! I LOVE this quote and when I was in Sister Petra's Latin class I translated Cicero! :)


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
