Sketch Frenzy Friday 092713

Happy Friday all! Hope your week was good. Not bad here!! Still wish I could find (or make??) more time in the stamp room but otherwise all is good!!

As you know, Friday means another round of Sketch Frenzy Friday!! Here is what I came up with this week

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala.

I initially thought DSP with this sketch as those backgrounds are always great with something like this. Then I settled on this set Oh, Hello and the pattern on the oval was too much for another background. So, card stock it is!! I stamped the oval and flower on Whisper White and cut out with Oval Framelits. The flower is attached to the large oval with dimensionals, and the oval to the background with dimensionals as well. I added pears to the top right corner and stamped the saying bottom right. Whisper White Taffeta ribbon was the perfect final accent. Colors, Basic Gray, Strawberry Slush and Whisper White.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend on tap! High school football tonight (go band!!), then hopefully some yard work tomorrow unless its raining!

Make sure you stop over at the main Sketch Frenzy Friday blog to see the creations of the rest of the team AND to play along!!


Sketch Frenzy Friday 092013

Happy Friday all! I must admit it's been a pretty good week here. Feeling better than I have in a long time and actually have some energy after dinner to do something! My norm of late has been to just crash on the couch!! Made it up to the room tonight and got a card done for Sketch Frenzy Friday!!

Here is what I came up with

based on this sketch by Patrice Herrera.

I didn't stray far from the sketch did I? Sometimes, simple and sweet is the best way to go!! I love this DSP print and the new color, Coastal Cabana. OK, so maybe this year's In Colors aren't all that new to most of you, but they still are to me!!

I did a Coastal Cabana card base with a Whisper White accent layer behind a DSP Chevron print. Chevron's are everywhere right now aren't they?!?? Around the top I attached a Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim ribbon. I find with this ribbon, to get it to lay flat, attach the ribbon at both sides, then knot a smaller piece around that. I did secure the ribbon too with just a little Snail adhesive and a Mini Glue Dot under the knot. The saying is from the new set Chalk Talk and has coordinating Framelit set. I added two Whisper White Candy Dots and attached to the DSP background with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it for me today! Make sure you stop over at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog to see what the rest of the team created, AND to play along!! Hope to see you here again soon :)



Happy Friday all! Sorry this is late, and sorry no card! Another of those weeks :) Worked a different schedule and I'm fighting allergies or another cold or something. Ugh! I will add a card later if I can work it in!!
