A Couple of Sketches

Happy Friday All!

TGIF, TGIF...can you tell I'm happy it's finally Friday! I am so looking forward to the weekend! Hope you are too and I hope it's a great one!

Today I have my two Friday cards to share with you. First is for Just Magnolia and then for Stamp Something. And funny, this week both of the challenges are new sketches to try out! Sorry...no combining the challenges this week!


At Just Magnolia we have a sketch from Mina! She always makes lovely sketches that are fun to use. This one is no exception, I will definitely use it again! And we also have a little bit of news to share too...the fabulous and fun Dawny P has joined our DT as a permanent member! Woo Hoo! Welcome Dawny!

Here's my card! I went for a vintage look with this one and distressed all the edges and use some pretty BasicGrey Eva papers. I love the colors in these; pinks, greens, browns...what could be better! I've colored my sweet Tilda with copics and then added some gel pen and glitter pen highlights. I've embellished with Prima flowers, roses, sticky pearls, and a piece of ruffled ribbon from May Arts. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at...
Simon Says Stamp - Thinking of You
La La Land - Getting Punchy


This week at Stamp Something we have a wonderful sketch designer and guest designer with us, it's Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs! She has created a fun and easy to use sketch and all you need to do is play along and have some fun with us!

I've gone with a cupcake digital image from our sponsor this week, Stretch and Bubble. The cupcake was screaming for someone fun to be sitting on top of it and I thought this Swiss Pixie cutie was perfect! They both have been colored with copics and then I added some chunky glitter and glitter glue accents to make them sparkle!

My papers are BG lemonade and SU! card stock. I've embellished with Prima flowers, sticky gems, ribbon tabs, and the glitter. I've embossed the pink layer under the image with the Swiss Dots folder and CB.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you have a great Friday and if you are up for some challenges, please head on over to Just Magnolia and Stamp Something and join us, be sure to check out my design team members and their fabulous creations too! Happy Stamping! :)
