Sketch Frenzy Friday 09-14-12

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you well and happy!

I'll be off line for about a month or so, I think? As we are moving to West Virginia at the end of this month and my crafting goodies will have to be all packed up and ready to go by this weekend. I am going to try to sell my desk and the last of my bookshelves at our Yard Sale.

We will be looking to purchase a home when we get there, but until then we will rent until escrow closes. Of course I have packed a bunch of crafting goodies to have with me but, at this moment I do not know how much I will be able to sprawl out in a one bedroom lolol.

So keep us in your thoughts and prayers that everything goes smoothly and safely. We will chat soon!

This weeks sketch was designed by Jennifer W. I really like this sketch too! When, I first looked at this sketch I immediately thought black white and red. I have no idea why that happened, but it did! Have you ever had that happen to you before? Just look at a sketch and think the color combo? It was like "bam" black, white and red! Well OK, I'll go with it!

This is what I came up with.
I used  Artistic Etchings, Just Believe and the Blessings from Heaven stamp sets to create the images and the sentiments on this card. Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red CS for the card base and panels. The inks were the new  Basic Black and Craft Whisper White. The Eiffel Tower (sp?)  was stamped in VersaMark and then heat embossed  it with Black Embossing Powder.
Now here is a look at the inside.
That's all there is to this card, it was very simple and fast to create. I completed the entire card in under 30 minutes. I just love when that happens! lololol.

Your next stop on our mini blog hop is to go and visit  our very talented Robbie Rubula over at

If you would like to try your hand at creating a card from Jennifer's sketch please upload it on to our main page we would love to see it.

I hope you find some time to create this weekend. Wish us luck with the move and our journey across the United States. I'll chat with you all in a month or so. Take care and be safe.

The best part of our trip is that we are stopping over in MO to visit my BFF Carey! See you on the 29th my friend!
