Sketch Frenzy Friday - September 24th...

Aaaaah.......another week has come and gone! This week has been a tough one for me. It was very long. And very tiring. I have alot of workshops coming up and have been working towards building up my Stampin' business as well as the usual family "schtuff" and my health.

My highlight of the week was the Grey's Anatomy premier!! I was slightly disappointed with the episode itself......but am STOKED that one of my favorite shows ever is back on the air! w00t!!

OK......enough babbling :) Here is this week's sketch:

And here is the card that I have created based on the sketch:

I opted for a Christmas card this time........I LOVE Christmas and I am really excited that it is getting closer :) I can't wait to start decorating my house!!

I used a couple of the in colors for this one.....Pear Pizazz & Poppy Parade (along with Basic Black and Whisper White) and the Candy Cane Christmas DSP. And I used the cute "Season of Joy" Christmas stamp set to tie it together. I love the "Fa La La La La" :)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop in and visit Tina Taves next on the blog tour!

Sketch Frenzy Friday!!

Another week has come and gone and it's time for some Sketch Frenzy Friday inspiration! This is the sketch that we were given to play with this week:

And here is my card!

I stuck to the current IN COLORS for this one with some Whisper White added...The stamp set that I used here is called "Just Believe" and is becoming one of my faves :) I have used the Concord Crush Poly Ribbon....and at first I wasn't sure how I felt about this ribbon. But now that I have had the chance to play.....well....all I can say is OOOOH-LA-LA!! And of course my beloved BigShot made an appearance for this one as well :)

So there you have it...and now don't forget to mozy on over and pay a visit to Tina Taves and see what she has done with this week's Sketch! And if you have the time.....make sure you carry along the blog tour too :)

Happy Friday Ya'll!

Sketch Frenzy Friday - September 10th

Friday again already! I feel like every single SFF post starts the same way.........the weeks are flying by so fast I can't even believe it! Before we know it there will be snow on the ground and we will be getting ready for Christmas!!

This week's sketch was quite fun, I really like it and know that I will use it again in the future. Here is the sketch we were given to work with....

And here is the card that I have created based on this week's sketch! SURPRISE!! New colors! AND paper!! :-)

I have used Sunny Garden DSP along with the Just Believe stamp set and some Pear Pizzaz ribbon to finish it off! I only have the In Color ribbons in 2 colors so far but I really love them!

Now don't forget to head on over and pay a visit to Tina Taves and carry along with the entire SFF Blog Tour!

Sketch Frenzy Friday - September 3rd

Friday again! And time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday card! But before I get to that, I have to introduce tonight's helper. She has made an appearance before......but tonight her "HELP" was much appreciated! She was my official paper cutter guard!! Meet my fat cat.....Diesel :-) She seems to find her way to my side whenever I am crafting...and tonight was no exception!

And now onto this week's sketch. This is the sketch we were given to play with this week. I decided to put a spin on it, as you will see...but here is the sketch in all it's glory...

And here is the card that I have created based on this week's sketch...

I have once again reached for my Greenhouse Gala DSP and my favorite Concord Crush cardstock! I can't help it! I am sooooo in love with BOTH these papers!! And of course the satin ribbon, which I love and the very versatile Cute by the Inch Hostess set. I am falling more and more in love with this set too! :-)

Now don't forget to head on over to Tina Taves blog and see what she has done with this week's sketch....and from there carry on with the complete blog tour! It's always fun to see everyone's different takes on the same sketch!

Thanks for stopping by.....and I really hope that you will have some time to play along this week!
