Sketch Frenzy Friday 12/12/14

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

Yes! It's Sketch Frenzy Friday time again. This weeks sketch was designed by my dear friend Elizabeth Kratzer. I has so much fun working with her sketch this week! Great job challenging my brain Elizabeth! You did good.

Here is her sketch,

This is what I came up with,

I used a piece of Kraft for the card base. It is so nice and sturdy, I love working with it! A piece of Cherry Cobbler was used for the background color. Three of the focal pieces were matted on Whisper White and the Sentiment piece was matted on Early Espresso. I stamped the sentiment twice once in Cherry Cobbler and a second time in Garden Green. I cut out the Garden Green word "Cheer" and mounted that over the Cherry Cobbler wording for a little extra pop and interest. All the DSP is from the Trim The Tree Paper Stack. I thought a pretty Cherry Cobbler Bow would fill the space nicely. I added a Merry Christmas banner and a Gold Button to the Bow as embellishments.

The three stamp sets I used were from Petite Pairs Wondrous Wreath, and Mingle All The Way. That's all there is for me this week's card.I hope you were inspired and give Elizabeth's sketch a try. I know we all would love to see it!

Here is a look at the inside,

I have been very busy getting ready for the Holidays. My neighbor Priscella and her very cute daughter Tameia (Her middle name is Jeanne' just like my daughters, too cute!) and I had a fun day baking, Noel and I had a couple days Beading. Hi Ladies, I had fun spending the day with you! The yard decorations are 99% done, the inside of the house is 100% done. I just need to dust yuck! I am almost finished baking, tomorrow I plan on finishing frosting the sugar cookies!  The gifts are next. I have lots to do in that department. I guess that is good because, I am still ahead of schedule so I get to enjoy the season and not be stressed out. The weather has been pretty good so far not too cold or wet that has been very nice.

I hope you find some time in your busy schedules to create something fun.
"Tis the season to create!"
