WELCOME....It's that time again! Sketch Frenzy Friday! This weeks Sketch comes to us from My friend Patrice Herrera.

I chose to take this sketch and make a less conventional Halloween Card. The last for the year so why not right? I grabbed a base of Hello Honey and Layered some DSP from Color Me Autumn, I know I've used this a lot but I just love these colors. (next week I'll go back to Christmas) maybe LOL ANYWAY....I stripped a couple pieces of Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon. I then used the thinlits from the Flower Patch Bundle to cut out my main focus. I told you I was doing it a little unconventionally :) I liked the look and it's an out of the norm way to use these particular thinlits. I finished off the look with a couple strips of washi tape added my stamps from Freaky Friends and Ghoulish Greetings and there ya have it. What do ya think??? Cute?? Different??  

Thank You so much for stopping by, I had a lot of fun with this card. Remember as always if you'd like to play along with us you can always hit the SFF link right HERE and there's a link at the bottom of the page that will let you add your version of this weeks sketch. Come on....play along with us! ;) Oh and please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by! Enjoy and until next week!

Hello and Welcome to another Sketch Frenzy Friday post....! This week we have a wonderful sketch from Elizabeth Harris.
 Fun right?? 

I love that there's lots of landscape to add some embossing and such. 

I went with a winter theme. The background is embossed using Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions folder. I used a bit of DSP from the Moonlight Stack. My image comes from the stamp set Mingle All The Way. I stamped it in Pool Party and dabbed some color with markers. Sweet and simple. I love how it came out. Thank you all for looking and of course if you want to play along you can by posting your version of this sketch Here. Have a great week everyone!

Hello and Welcome to this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday Post.
This weeks Sketch comes from my good friend Terri Tank.


My take on this was a Christmas card. I used a stamp set from the Holiday Catty Called Holiday Home.


I chose a card base of Cherry Cobbler, Stamped the houses on whisper white card stock in Pool Party, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate. Paneled them on to pool party card stock. I embellished using Cherry Cobbler candy dots, white seam binding ribbon and silver 1/8 in ribbon. Oh and a touch of crystal effects on the light bulbs. Hope you enjoy my rendition of this sketch. Remember that you can always try your hand out at recreating this card or using this sketch. If you do please post a pic of it Here on our SFF Blog. :) Have a great week, and THANK YOU for stopping by. Comments always welcome.

WOW...okay It's Friday again already??? My weeks seem to just fly by anymore. Well since it's Friday it's time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday Post. This weeks sketch is brought to us by Diana Elchfeild.

This was a challenging sketch for me, not at all a style I would have picked out myself. Which is EXACTLY why I enjoy doing these weekly posts. To stretch my creativity and get out of my comfort box. 



So....I again grabbed my Color Me Autumn DSP (love this DSP) 
I used Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Sahara Sand card stock and inks. With the leaves I did something a little different, I cut them out of the DSP then brushed the edges with ink, then popped them up with demensionals added my sentiment from For All Things stamp set also out of the Holiday Mini catty. 

So there ya go....now go forth and recreate....LOL Yes, recreate this sketch and share with us on our SFF Blog HERE 
Happy Stamping everyone and I'll see ya again next Friday! ;)

Hello and HAPPY FALL! 
It's Friday and time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday entry. Our Sketch this week comes from Kathy Clark.
I like this sketch. I don't know why but it def stood out for me. 


I'm just starting to get into the fall theme....Usually by now I'm deep into making Halloween cards but this year I haven't really grasped it. BUT I think the fall colors and all the leaves are speaking to me this year! ;) 


This DSP is so pretty I think, I just love it. Here in Texas late in the summer we have all the beautiful Monarch Butterflies fly through for their migration....this card reminds me of that! I was amazed the first time I was able to witness it. ANYWAY...I feel like I'm babbling LOL With this card I used Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, and Tangelo Twist card stock and ink colors. This lovely DSP comes from the Color Me Autumn DSP pack. I really enjoy this pack. I added a few candy dots for a sweet embellishment. Hope you enjoy my entry for this week. Thank you so much for coming and visiting. Please leave a comment and let me know how I'm doing. I love to hear the feedback. If you'd like to participate in this weeks challenge, ( YES YOU CAN ) just go to our Sketch Frenzy Friday blog Here and there's a link at the bottom for you to be able to add your creation of this sketch so we can all see. So until next week....Happy Stamping!
