Out for a Stroll at Friday Sketchers 118



A magnificent Friday to Everyone!!! I hope your week has been an exceptionally nice one! Gosh, I am counting the days off for sure because after today I will be down to just 10 radiation sessions left. AND for the next 2 weeks I will just have 4-day weeks because of Labor Day and the fact that I am burned already!!! I won't know how to act with a 3-day weekend..Yippppeeee!!!!

This week at Friday Sketchers 117 we are honored to be hosted by the magnificently talented and creative Claudia who has designed for us quite a challenging sketch....or at least it was for me!!! I would love for you to come over to try your hand at Claudia's sketch so that we can all see your interpretation. AND this week there is a very nice prize up for grabs which is being offered by Simon Says Stamp.

Rather than a card, this week I made a little card/folder which is very similar to one I received as a gift from the sweet and talented Iris a bit ago. I wanted to place 6 chocolate bars in my folder so all of the dimensions are different from the one I received....of course it almost drove me NUTZ cutting and measuring all of those double mattings and DPs...The dimension of mine is actually 5"X6" and the spine is 1" in case you want to try this one. You can perhaps see Claudia's sketch when you view the folder opened to the outside cover below...lol



For my project I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is Basic Gray Olivia and PTI Dots. All major panels are machine stitched. The images I used are hÄnglar & stÄnglar of the little girl, the carriage, and the kitten and all were colored with Copics and rested on a double Nestie. On the front of the folder I added stickled Wild Orchid Crafts roses on MS and Magnolia die cut branches.

For the inside of the card/folder I used a double Nestie for a jotting spot adding a simple knotted PTI satin ribbon. For the second panel I made a pocket sized to fit the 6 chocolate bars and finished it with another simple knotted piece of satin ribbon. The whole thing is tied together with wider PTI grosgrain ribbon.



I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Claudia's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Aud, Bea, Carole, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my world...it is always such a real pleasure to see you!! I hope you will come back often and I just love hearing what you have to say about my creations. Have a beautiful day!! And until tomorrow, BIG HUGS for all of YOU!!
