LOTV Together Forever at Friday Sketchers #142 and WINNER!!!



A very happy Friday to everyone!! I hope your week has been an exceptional one and also hope that you are looking forward to a marvelous weekend! It has been so beautiful here that I am just knowing it's the lull before the storm...lol...Gosh, it is so springlike and I am READY for spring in the worst way!! This year I can get outside and dig in the dirt and I can hardly wait!!!!

This week at Friday Sketchers #142 we are being hosted by Bea from Germany who has provided for all of us a very fun and challenging sketch. I hope you will come over and play along with us and become eligible for a very nice prize from Pink Cat Studio.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting. The DP is from Marianne Designs and is no longer available and I just love the blues and yellows of this paper pad.....sigh...I decided to make my card in the national colors of Sweden this week to honor my wonderful Swedish friend Gunilla who is celebrating a VERY special birthday this week. If you have a moment please go over and wish her well on her birthday week!!!! All panels of my card were machine stitched. I used the absolutely darling little LOTV Together Forever, stamped it on XPress It Blending Card and colored it with Copics. For the horizontal I used 7/8" Yellow Gingham. To finish the front, I used Lemon Baker's Twine, some spider daisies, tiny yellow buttons to soften the corners, and a daisy button to hold the SU tiny hello.


The inside is more of the same with larger daisy buttons added to the first panel and a picture hanging ribbon treatment for the jotting panel.

I hope you like my little creation 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!!!
Bev, Claudia, Janneke, Jeanette,Tanja

Gorgeous card:)

Traci S. said...

Wow Jacque~

You have everything planned out already! This card is one of my favorites. I love the blues, whites and yellows when put together as the major colors of one card! This image is one of my favorites. I was looking at their site, and there are so many wonderful romantic/childhood images there! I saw the bride there, and thought of a little girl playing dress up!

Your card is sensational. I love the flowers (I've never seen that variety!) and all of that stitching! The buttons are a nice addition.

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing cards with us! They give me something to strive for...and encourage me not to hoard my precious paper! Thank you!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
