Sketch Frenzy Friday 4/24/15

Hello everyone, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Where does the time go? I am amazed that it is the end on April already! WOW! I just can't believe it. We have been working so hard in the garden trying to get it all done by mid May that it seems that is all I can think about these days. I hurt my knees digging a few weeks ago and that has slowed me down a bit. My brain doesn't think my body is near 60 and out of shape so I think I can do what I did when I was in my 30's. LOL Not anymore I'm pooped and sore by the time its ready for bed.

However, I did make time to get a card done for this weeks sketch!  Carol Reed
is our designer this week and she did a great job with it. I really liked working with this sketch. Thanks Carol! Here is her sketch;
and this is what I came up with from it.

My inspiration for this card came from a card that Amy K made with a different stamp from the stamp set called Moon Lake. She also used the background stamps from Work of Art in different colors. I used Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding inks. Thanks Amy for the inspiration! What a great idea to use the two colors and the focal image. Don't you think it makes for such a great look for a focal image?

I used Mossy Meadow ink and card stock. A strip of Burlap Ribbon and a scrap of Painted Blooms DSP. The double bow was made from the SAP Ribbon and Button set in Lost Lagoon.

Here is a look a the inside.

That's all there is to this card for this week. Thanks for stopping by and we would love to see what you come up with from this weeks sketch. Here is our link
so you'll know where to load it so we can check it out!

I'm getting ready to take some photos of the yard this weekend, so you can see just how much of the yard we have dug up!The plan is to dig up most of the grass. Leaving just small area's that Jeff has to mow around. Well that's the plan anyhow lol.

Chat soon,
