Friday Sketchers 101 and Some Sweet Stuff for YOU!!!
Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope that everyone has had a magnificent week and that you are also looking forward to a wonderful weekend!! As you know I had my 4th of 6 chemos on Monday and then the BIG shot on Tuesday so my week has been one of great interest!! hahaha So interesting that I hope I never see another one quite like it!! But, on the upswing, GOSH!!! I am 2/3 finished so thanks for all of the sweet support you have given me...it means the world, believe me!!
Today at Friday Sketchers we are celebrating our Two Year Anniversary and I am so excited because I am hosting and have made the sketch for the week. I hope you will participate along with us for sure!! Since all of the DT Members wanted to get the party started we decided to do a Blog Hop for you rather than put the DT Sample Cards on the regular blog...so please hop along with us and see not only the cards but the neat prizes you can win as you hop along!!
So if you arrived at my blog first, please go back to the Friday Sketchers blog to start your party!! For my card, I used some cute MM black/white and yellow/white gingham papers which were a gift from Suzan! Thank you so much Sweetie!! The base of the card is Bazzill and the matting is all PTI. You can see that I machine stitched the background panels and made a frame of gingham and satin ribbon around the outside of the card, placing the ribbons in diagonal slits made in the card base after tieing a soft knot in each ribbon. Both the center square and oval nesties are propped up for dimension. I used that darling little Honey Tilda from the Raising the Ceiling Collection over at Magnolia-licious but it looks as though she is out of stock at the moment. Contact Diana if you would like to have her. I stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics, adding bits of Stickles to the antennae, wings, and tummy! To finish the front of my card, I added a couple of bumble bee buttons and several tiny yellow flowers to soften the corners!
And now for a touch of SWEET STUFF!!! This is my very favorite part!!!!
