Times to Treasure at Friday Sketchers #139



Happy Friday Everyone!!! I hope you have had a magnificent week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend! I know that I can't wait for the weekend to finally arrive AND it is supposed to be in the 50s with no snow or ice in sight!! Yippppeeeee!!

This week at Friday Sketchers #139 we are hosted by Jorunn of Norway who has designed a delightfully fun sketch for us. I hope you will all come over and play along with us where there is a very nice prize provided by our sponsor this week, My Favorite Stamps.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all double matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Spring Fling Paper Stack by Wild Rose Studio. All background panels are machine stitched. The darling little Times to Treasure and accompanying sentiment are by LOTV and were stamped on Cryogen White and the image was colored with Copics. For the horizontal I used the Die-namics Open Scallop Border from My Favorite Stamps. I then topped it with satin ribbon and double flat bow. The floral treatment is made up of Mixed Summer Blooms by Wild Orchid Crafts centered with brads and parts of buttons. I have been so busy this week that I didn't complete the inside of this one so I will save it for a LONG note to someone!!

I hope you like my little card and will decide to join with us at Friday Sketchers this week. Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Bea, Bev, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my little world and I hope you will want to return often! Sending a big hug to you as you begin your splendid weekend!!!

Hi Jacque~

Praying you have a fabulous weekend! Thank you for sharing this cheerful card with us! I love books, and especially love any stamps with books in them. This is an adorable image! You really colored it beautifully. It would be a great card for an elementary school teacher or student! Or anyone who just struggled to get their GHD. It is beautiful, bright and fun! I hope you enjoy your snow- free weekend! Be well!
