SFF 052711

Good Friday morning! Ahhhh! And it is a long weekend! For us it is extra special because it is the last day of school and my parents and my brother are coming out for a visit! We don't get to see them as often as we like. In fact we haven't seen them since Christmas! The JUCCO World Series starts this weekend and we are going to be watching a lot of baseball! Fun, fun, fun!! But Friday also means that there is another wonderful sketch challenge from Sketch Frenzy Friday! This week's sketch is brought to us by Tina Taves. Take a look:

So simple and so many possibilities! Here is what I finally came up with:

I hope it doesn't look too fall like (because I am not ready for fall just yet). I started with a card base of Garden Green. Then I ran a piece of Cajun Craze through the Big Shot with the square lattice embossing folder and sponged it. This gets glued to the card. Then I cut a 3 1/2" circle from Crumb Cake and stamped my greeting from Thoughts & Prayers in Early Espresso. The circle is sponged with Crumb Cake. Then I got my Lovely as a Tree stamp set out and dusted it off (literally) and stamped the leaves in Garden Green on Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut them out and sponged a little Wild Wasabi over them to give them a little more color. I popped these up on the circle and the circle is popped up on the card. The last thing I did was to punch a flower from Cajun Craze using the itty bitty shapes punch pack. I put the flower right over the acorn and added a basic pearl. And there you have it!

So now I am going to send you off to see what Jennifer has done with this sketch. Be sure to click your way through the tour to get inspired! By doing this, you will eventually end up at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog where you are able to upload your creation! I do hope that you will find time to play along this week! I love looking at all your wonderful creations! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
