SFF 123010

Good Friday morning everyone! The last day of 2010! WOW! We will be ringing in the new year with friends later this evening. We play games till midnight and then do the whole countdown thing with the kids and toast to the new year with some sparkling juice. The kids love it! And we adults do too!

So Friday also means another wonderful sketch from the Sketch Frenzy Friday team! Today's great sketch comes to us from Jennifer Weide. I had so many ideas running through my head that it was hard to pin it down to one. And this one didn't come out exactly as I had planned in my head. But it works. I will definitely be playing with this sketch again!

For my card I started with a Whisper White card base. I made another layer of Whisper White which you would have to do but I was thinking I was going to put ribbon around it until I got done and thought that the ribbon wasn't going to work like I had planned. I tell ya, I could have fiddled and fiddled with this one but I finally said enough! Anyway, I used the stamps from the new set called Valentine Defined. I love this set! Such cute images! So I stamped the string of hearts in Real Red. Then I cut a square of Whisper White and stamped the flamingos in Pink Pirouette and the sentiment in Real Red. That is glued to a Real Red piece of cardstock and popped up. Then I cut a strip of the 'xoxo' paper from the Love Impressions designer paper (also new) and glued that down. Then I added three rhinestones for bling! Really easy! In the end I thought that the ribbon would cover up the xoxo and I really wanted it to show up as much as possible.

Thanks for stopping by! Time to go see what Jennifer did with her wonderful sketch! Don't forget to tour through all the designers! You will end up at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog where you can post your wonderful creation! I can't wait to see what you create! Have a super day and Happy New Year!
