Sketch Frenzy Friday

Happy SFF Friday everyone. This weeks sketch was a fun creation from Terri Tank. I had a little fun with this one. But then I couldn't get it posted to the right places in time for me to make it on the blog.  I'm currently doing a "back to my roots" trip with my sister and we have traveled to the mid west for a look back at where we came from. My sister remembers some of the places here as she was around 8 when my fam up and moved out west. I was only 6 mos old and this is the first time I've been back here....uh em 40 plus years later. So we are on an adventure. Anyway I hope you all enjoy this weeks sketch. Have a great week and I'll be back in two weeks :)


Welcome to the 2015 VC ROCKS Blog hop! The theme for this hop is "CELEBRATE THE OLD"
So any stamps or ebellishments that are retiring or are already retired. I chose a selection of cards I made with the Blooms With Kindness stamp set. Such a pretty stamp don't you think? Really sad to see this one go but then I'm a flower addict and there are some pretty cool flower replacements coming in the new catalog. Let it goooooo, let it gooooo ahhh well you all know how the song goes. ANYWAY hope you enjoy this submission, and have fun Hopping Through......I'm excited to take the hop myself. Be sure to check out the VC Rocks Blog HERE and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. 
THANK YOU for stopping by
and be on the lookout for the New Stampin Up! Catalog coming June 2nd


Welcome to another SFF post

 This week I chose to use a catalog pre order set. Sprinkles Of Life. It's the new RMH stamp set so by purchasing it you help the Ronald McDonald House Charities. This set is a very nice and versatile set. I've been having a lot of fun playing with it. Also I used some of the new In-Colors for 2015-17. Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush as well as Pacific Point and Crushed Curry card stocks and inks. Hope you enjoy this weeks card....don't forget you can play along by clicking the link to the right for the SFF blog. Have a great week.....I'm off to do some family history visits with my sister for a couple weeks. Pretty excited about that! Take care everyone and Thanks for stopping by.

Build A Birthday

Playing with a new set from the 2015-16 catalog. What a cute set this is. Had a little fun with it. Not bad for the first time in ink. Looking forward to what I can create with this set. I'm sure it will a fav


This weeks sketch is shown above. I chose to celebrate DSP and stick right with the layout. ( I love butterflies) 

I used the Painted Blooms designer series paper out of the retiring Occasions catalog. Such pretty paper. I used a strip of So Saffron and the a piece of Pink Pirrouette embossed with the Spring Flowers textured impressions embossing folder aslo out of the Occasions catty. The butterfly is from the Butterflies Thinlits and the greeting came from the Crazy About You set also from the Occasions catty. The Occasions catalog expires on June 2nd 2015 so if there are some items you've been wanting as well as these items I used today then you'll want to get your order in. Just click the Order Online button to the right of this page.
