ISSC16- you're a lifesaver!

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!! Kick starting the weekend with the 16th 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 ISSC16 is based on  this card from Dyane Fogleboch (Precious Stamps @ SCS).

Happy mail arrived at my house the other day in the form of some new The Cats Pajamas stamps .... love this bunny (BunBun is the name, I've heard!). He/she is out sailing.... okay, rowing the seven seas! Stamped the image twice, paper pieced the boat and oar, colored the rest with copics (practice, practice, pratice) That and using the right paper- I've had XPress It blending cardstock and haven't used as much as I should- trying to correct the errors of my ways and it definitely works better...yes, yes, yes, my teamies at I Spy are color fanatics and they do have knowledge.. accumulated knowledge when you add them all up... blows my mind!).

Enough of making them feel special (hehehe), added some waves with a TCP cut ups die, sun was made with a MFT die-namic. Papers are MME Ms. Caroline Dilly Dally- doncha' love that name-- Dilly Dally- makes me think of a lazy summer day, wearing flipflops and just hanging out, which will be upon us soon!

Here's the sketch

Just a little tip... if you don't want to freehand that curve on the background panel- I cut the square and then used a coffee cup saucer to trace the curve on the backside of my dp- then cut... easy peasy!

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 coloring and creativity!!

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

What a sweet card Vickie! That floppy eared bunny is darling and I love the textured sunshine!

Lynn Mercurio said...

OUTSTANDING, Vicki! what great design elements on this card. Look at the dimension on your sun, and the waves are so flippin adorable. What really makes this card is the fabulous coloring and the great combination of plaid and polka dot papers. Incredible!
