Happy Friday all, sorry no creation from me this week. Though life has been a little calmer, I've come down with the "back to school crud", or maybe the "state fair crud". Not sure which was the source but I've been down and out the last few days. Here is the sketch of the week by Deb Currier for Sketch Frenzy Friday. Stop over and play along!!

Happy Friday all! Hope it's been a good week for all of you. Crazy start here, but now much calmer! Looking forward to a weekend with nothing major on the agenda for me!! Hoping to spend time in the stamp room!!

Friday as you know means another round of Sketch Frenzy Friday!! Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Angela Walters.

I grabbed the new set Too Kind and two new colors Strawberry Slush and Baked Brown Sugar. It's a two step stamp and you'll want the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. Actually, I didn't try it without and if you're using clear you might be able to wing it. My set is wood-mount so I can do a vellum sheet for the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and just leave it with the set. Also, I learned something else tonight. I love the new ink pads for how well they stamp, but they don't work very well for stamping off. I didn't want to use two colors for the flower, I wanted to stamp the back image off once. Doesn't work well, but if you're quick with that first stamp and don't hold it on the paper it works OK. Do hold it then on your cardstock though.

Make sure you stop over at the main Sketch Frenzy Friday blog and see the creations of the rest of the team and play along with us!! We love to see your creations!!

Have a GREAT weekend all!!

Happy Friday all! Another one of "those weeks" here, but I've made it through!! Hope you all had a GREAT week with fantastic plans for the weekend. 

Friday as you know means another round of Sketch Frenzy Friday!! Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Sharon Wheet.

I was inspired by the new Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. All Basic Black and Very Vanilla-love it!! The card base is Basic Black with a Very Vanilla accent layer behind the DSP print background. I grabbed my new set, Million and One, and used it after I put it together :). Two very nice phrases in this one!! I cut the shape using the Labels Collection Framelits in the Big Shot. Same size for the Very Vanilla and two Basic Black. The black is split in half, one vertically, one horizontally and attached to the back of the Vanilla. To me, the sizes of Framelits are just a little too wide and I prefer a smaller layer. At the top is a DSP flower punched with the new Pansy punch-think you'll be seeing lots of this one!! I punched the polka-dot black DSP print and added a Very Vanilla button in the center. Final accent, a Victoria Crochet Trim bow.

Thanks for stopping by today! Still not much stamping this week, but hopefully soon! One boy is all signed up & fees paid-ready to go back to High School on Monday. The other goes off to College the following Monday. Throw in an upcoming Estate Auction, general life, a traveling husband, and an overproducing garden and we're running like crazy around here! It will slow down---it has too :)

Happy Friday all!! Have I shocked you?? A post from me!! with a creation!! Hoping to get back on track, here is step one! My Sketch Frenzy Friday creation of the week!!

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala.

I dug into my new box of goodies that have been sitting for FAR too long!! The colors, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. Starting with the Gingham Garden DSP pack. The card base is Island Indigo, the background a Melon Mambo print. A multi stripe print is the accent on the left side. A Daffodil Delight print is the background for the flowers. The flowers are from the FUN new set, Flower Shop which coordinates with the new Pansy punch. LOVE IT!! The saying is from the Really Good Greetings set. The flowers were stamped in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and punched with the Pansy punch. They are attached with Mini Glue Dots or Dimensionals. The buttons are Island Indigo color from the NEW Regals Designer Buttons. Fun new stuff!!
