ISSC43- welcome!!

It's a lazy Friday morn' for me- due to the long Holiday weekend. For those of you that celebrated--belated Happy Thanksgiving- hope your day was wonderful!! We had a wonderful day at my house full of family, good friends, good food and lots of laughter!! I'll be soaking in the quiet and leftovers this weekend and.... catching up on some challenges and blog surfing I've missed this past week, Whoo Hoo!!

Back to business.. it's time for another I Spy sketch!! Y'all created fabulous cards last week.... keep 'em coming!! This is the sketch challenge where we look for YOUR cards for Inspiration!!

ISSC43 is by Jean Martin  and is inspired by this card. Adorable, huh!! Love The Crafts Meow image and the banner across the top with twine and clothespin is fabulous!!

My interpretation of the sketch

I made a baby card for my stash. In trying to channel Jean's use of making her own backgrounds- I stamped the stars from Verve's To The Moon set on the middle panel and added some MME Fine & Dandy True Blue papers. The image is also from Verve's To The Moon set (love this set for baby cards!!) stamped, fussy cut, and adhered to the nestie oval. I didn't adhere the upper half of the giraffe to "pull up" and add a little dimension. My banner is the crochet with buttons. Finished off with a bow and flag tag sentiment- sentiment from Verve and tag was made with MFT's flag stax die-namics!

Here's the sketch

So.....have fun and get to Stampin!! Make a card using the sketch - 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 and inspiration!!

Can't wait to drink my coffee, relax in jammies and check out all the cards from last week!!

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