SFF 052011

Good morning, Friends! Are you ready for a great weekend? It has literally rained every day this week! Yikes!! But the sun is supposed to shine today and that's a good thing because there is a huge soccer tournament here in town this weekend! In fact, I have pre-posted this because Nick's first game is early!

Before I get to my card I wanted to share the links and instructions to the faux leather wallet that I made for the Control Freaks blog tour. I have been getting quite a few questions and wanted to get them all answered! So here you go! First of all you can find basic instructions for a kind of wallet here. These instructions also tell you one way to make it look like faux leather. I did mine a little different. I covered my wallet with VersaMark ink and then poured clear embossing powder over that. Then I took my bone folder and "drew" lines in the embossing powder before I heated it. The instructions for the wallet I made comes from Lorri Heiling and can be found here. I hope this helps everyone!

O.k. So on to my card! Because of the Control Freaks blog tour yesterday, I couldn't participate in the Sketch Frenzy Friday mini blog tour. It is such a great sketch that I couldn't pass it up so I decided to make it up for today! The sketch was made by Tammy Fite. And I do hope that you all will find time to play along this week! Here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with:
