Sketch Frenzy Friday 092311

Hello to all my Blogging Friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Yep it's that time again for our Friday Mini Blog Hop! This weeks sketch is a fun one and it was created by our very talented Maria Vanderform. Take a look at this
This is what I came up with. It amazes me what can be created when one spends a little time on a project. I was so excited to be able to have some "Me Time" today. Then my sister called and said "My Mom is back in the hospital", they admitted her again last night, Seem they think the Staff Infection is back at work inside her shoulder again. Please PRAY for her and a Quick Recovery!!!

You know me I love interactive cards. This is the perfect Sketch for it too, because there is so much going on in the background, I wanted to put my sentiment some where special so that the recipient will get a little extra love once the flap is opened. I think I'll bring it with me to the hospital tonight. I bet it will cheer her up!
I also gave the inside of the card a bit of attention too and hey as long as I am at it, why not the envelope as well, I have some extra time!

I love Marina Mist and Old Olive together, so I used those two colors for the base of the card. Then I used Beyond the Garden DSP for the background and scalloped pieces. I used the Scallop Square Punch and the Scallop Border Edge Punch for the Pop Up piece and the Pieces at the edge of the card. Basic Pearls always give a card that extra shot of elegance and the White Antique Brad really fit on the extra avail space. I used a strip of Marina Mist 1 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon along with at strip of 1/4 Night of Navy Ribbon. I used 3 stamp sets on this card Posey Punch, Fabulous Florets and Elements of Style. Basic Black ink was used for the sentiments and the sponged edges. I think that about covers it for this one.

Now you are off to visit Robbie Rubula's amazing blog, my is she talented!
and if you would like to try your hand at this cute sketch please share it with us on our Blog we would love to see it.  

I had a ball making this card with my "Much Needed Quiet Time" and my Neighbor even had some Smooth Jazz playing so I really was in the mood to create. Now it is your turn to go and create something fun for your self.

Please continue to Pray for my Mom. God does amazing things when our voices are lifted up to Him in Prayer.
