Life is Good!!

Happy Friday morn!! Yippee... I love fridays- a working girls' eve before vacation (you can be a 9 to 5er or you can be a stay at home mom with obligations and maybe hubs is around for more help on the WE)..anywho that's my life!!

Friday morning at my house brings a new I Spy sketch.... we are on week 5 now.

The sketch is based on DJRants card here. Love the flowers and colors on her card. Originally, I had a card ready to go but, needed this perfect little sentiment and it did get here in time (Verve quick shipping) but, I got a little paranoid last nite that something would come up and I wouldn't be able to finish so, I changed and made another one. Did a some experimenting with mists and mistable flowers....learned so, hopefully next time will work out better, LOL!!

My card....


Apologize for the pic taking... using Ott lights and not working well tonite. The sketch may appear to be a bit intimidating but, play with it...lay things out...experiment.... it will work!! When I did my "double take" and went in a different direction....flowers jumped right on that card---not surprising!! Made a couple loopy blooms with Lil Inkers loopy blooms die... so easy to use. Added a muslin/linen flower that was sprayed with Maya Mist and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-topped off with SU champagne/gold mist. Sentiment is from Verve's Hope Blooms stamped on a tag flag from MFT's banner die-namics. Added some zig zag stitching and a SU black grosgrain bow. Ohhh.. the corner piece was embossed with the swiss dots CB folder.

The sketch...


You can find more details at the I Spy Blog. The basis of the challenge is to "spy" a card in any online gallery or blog-- the sketch is created from the card chosen. The sketch will be posted Friday at 12:01 am (for time zones and early birds) and you have until noon the following Wednesday to create a card or project based on the sketch. THE Kim Teasdale will be picking the top 2 creations to be displayed on the "Top 2 Thursday" post.

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words and hope you have an inky weekend--- I'm hoping for a little time!! Friday evening I'll be bowling... not the Wii kind... the use those muscles kind!!

Love the mix of papers, Vicki! Gorgeous take on the sketch. Bummed I didn't get to use last weeks - had a sick daughter home and it tosses things into a tailspin on the crafting end :( Enjoy your weekend!
