SFF 022511

Good morning everyone and TGIF!! I know I am glad it is Friday! And the last Friday of February to boot! WOW! This month really went by quickly!! Just means spring is close behind and I can't wait!!

Sketch Frenzy Friday has another wonderful sketch challenge for us! Today's sketch is brought to us by Tammy Fite. Isn't it great?! Lots of possibilities!

I wanted to use my Sew Suite stamp set. It's new to me and I want to get the most out of it! Besides, it is such a fun set! So I started with a card base of Tangerine Tango and then used another piece of Tangerine Tango that was cut down just a bit to mount all of the other pieces onto. I used the Sweet Stitches designer paper and those pieces were mounted to a piece of Chocolate Chip. I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon around this. Then I stamped the greeting from A Word for You on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip and punched it out with the extra large oval punch (the bottom of the oval is chopped off so when it was tucked behind the ribbon it wouldn't show). Then I stamped the pin cushion and the spool on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink and gave them some color with a blender pen. These were popped up onto the card. Then I added a Chocolate Chip button from the big designer buttons pack with some Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon. And that's it! I had a lot of fun making this card!

So now you are ready to go and see what Jennifer did with this fun sketch! Be sure to click your way through the tour to get inspired. And then make your project to upload to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog so we can all see, too! I can't wait to see what you do with this sketch! Have a super day!
