Happy Thanksgiving! I'm at my Mom and Dad's today, and I had so much fun and got so much done! I went shopping this afternoon with my sister and dd's and got my youngest a new winter coat, my oldest yet another hoodie, and me nothing. But that's fine because when we got back to Mom's I got to stamp! All evening. So for the first time in months, I had a chance to do a Weekend Sketch Set! I used my new SU! set "For All You Do" and my new Pink Flamingo designer papers. Ooh, I love this paper!
I'll start with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. I really liked this sketch and it actually came together fairly quickly.
I kept fairly true to the sketch although I used ribbon for the bottom panel and ended up moving it up so it was underneath the focal panel.
I'm so curious to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers did with Karen's sketch, so hop along with me to pay a quick visit to each of their blogs. Then it's your turn!
OK, next up is Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 86. This was a fun one, and I just love the way the Pink Flamingo paper works on this! I added a slip of Tempting Turquoise ribbon on the focal image to balance it but other than that stayed right on with the sketch. This is also SUO! I can't believe it myself, but it is!
For Jen's Sketch for You to Try I went with a monochromatic look. The colours in the Pink Flamingo papers call for Cameo Coral, but I used Regal Rose and I think it looks just fine!
I didn't add the lower embelllishments as they didn't work with the popped up flowers. I could have added the sentiment there, but I ended up deciding against it, because I like it the way it is. The ribbon on the top is tied through a clear button with designer paper adhered to it!
Finishing the set is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 101. I really like how this card turned out using the solid floral stamp instead of the stem with flowers. I coloured a Pretties flower with the Summer Sun marker and a pearl with a Copic Marker. I fixed the flower after I took the picture, but you get it right?
I couldn't get a group shot, but I'll try to remember to add it when I get home. The pictures are a little darker than usual because I don't have the same set up at Mom's as I do at home. I am just so happy to have had so much Mojo! I guess a change of scenery really gave me a boost!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend, and my fellow Canadians are getting their fill of turkey this Thanksgiving weekend! Whatever you are up to, do it with a thankful heart. I am thankful for so much, especially for you spending a few minutes of your day at my place on the web!
