ISSC18- Happy Thoughts!

Good Friday morn'!! Yippee it's Friday- I know I say this every Friday but, I MEAN it 'cause for me that means a weekend is almost here and a little free time!! It's been a long, rough week on the work front... big ole' Thank Goodness I have a couple days off to recoup!

Kick starting the weekend with the 18th installment of I Spy Sketches. This is the sketch challenge where 
we come looking for YOUR cards for inspiration!! This week the sketch is based on  this card by LeAnne Pugliese ( LeAnne Pugliese @ SCS).
 


Papers are MME- Follow Your Heart -Be Happy paired with SU crumbcake. Stamped Verve Plain Jane butterfly and small butterfly from Verve's Blue Skies. Cut out with Verve's All Alutter dies and colored with copics. Added a MFT small doily and a bunch of buttons. The bottom button (layered on he wooden one) looks orange- can't get a pic to get the color- really it blends better. Sentiment is from Verve's Amazing Wishes. Here's the Verve connection.













Don't you just love the new colors Kim has added to the sketch!!

It's your turn....have fun and get to Stampin!! Make a card using the sketch- you can take a bit o' liberty and link it up.... we'd LOVE to see what you create!! Make sure and stop by the blog to see what the other Special Agents created-serious creativity!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
