ISSC44- and a Fond Farewell!!

Happy Friday morn'!! This is a sad morning for me. Ya' know, there are priorities in life- we all deal with that on a daily basis and decisions have to be made- it's hard.  This is the last I Spy sketch (fabulous sketch and inspiration card, BTW!!) The concept for I Spy sketches was Kimberly Warner Teasdale's--girl has a creative mind- and a big heart! Surfing the blogs/ SCS and using cards from other "addicted" cardmakers to base a sketch on, yep love it!! Unfortunately, life changed things.

Kim- you took me by surprise when you asked me to join the DT  (well maybe once in a while I make a good card, LOL!) and I have "met" and had fun with all of the DT, both past and present! Thanks for the opportunity!

Back to business.. the last I Spy sketch-ISSC44 is by Christine Okken  ( ChristineCreations at SCS) and is inspired by this card.  Love the bright colors and that rooster!!

Pulled out some recently acquired TCM stamps, O Christmas Tree. This set was designed by Amy Wanford at Crafting Confessions. Love the modern/trendy feel of this set. There are several trees with different patterns and several sentiments... LOVE! I played a little with the sketch... my circle became a doily with a couple of the trees. Papers are MME All is Bright. Added a SU wooden button and some twine.

The sketch..

A special Thanks to everyone who has played along with us and created cards using the sketchs over the past months!! I have enjoyed "Spying" the different interpretations of the sketch and appreciate your support of the challenge!!

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