Sketch Frenzy Friday 3/8/13

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

I am writing this post a bit early because of the snow storm we are supposed to have Wednesday and Thursday. I wonder how much snow we will really get?? They say to expect possible power outages and anywhere from 6-12 inches, so I'm getting my post done early just in case.

UPDATE: Good News Bad News; Bad news is that we only got 4-5 inches and most of that was in the early am. It started clearing up around 11:00 am and the snow didn't last very long. Good news is that when we woke up it was snowing really heavy , and if it was supposed to keep that up all day long it would be too dangerous for my honey to get home from work  so he stayed home with me. The best thing of all was that there were no power outages near us. Think good thoughts for those still with out power please'

This weeks sketch was designed by Deb Currier isn't it adorable! I thought it would be easy peasy to whip up a card! But No Way! There really is a lot to this sketch. What a good challenge Deb!

Here is what I came up with;
I added that cheery background DSP from the SAB freebie's. It's called Sycamore Street and I just love it! Then it took me for ever to match card stock to the DSP. Maybe it was just me but it took me a long time to make this card????
I have lot's of texture on the focal image and the banners. I got to use a bunch of embossing folders and Framelits.  Mr Big Shot got a really good workout today!
I hope you like my little card! Here is a peek at the inside too.

Su Supplies used on this card;

Stamp set- Wacky Wishes and Oh Hello.
Ink- Classic Black
DSP- Sycamore Street
Card Stock- Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Summer Starfruit.

Well I'm going to cut this post short. Hopefully I will be able to have it up on Friday.

Looks great. I was wondering if you got all the snow they were forcasting for you. I always look at West Virginia when they talk about the weather.
