Phew! What a week this has been at my house!! Lots of cropping, shopping and general chaos going on around here. But it’s Friday, so I’m looking for a bit of a slower pace now that it’s the weekend. Oh, and it’s gonna be HOT, HOT, HOT!! It’s supposed to break 100 every day this weekend. Woohoo! I’ll be floatin’ on my floatie at the pool, if you need me!
Okay, so we have a brand spankin’ new CAS-ual Fridays challenge for your crafting pleasure. It’s a sketch this time . . . I love sketches, don’t you?! And it’s a really good one, leaving lots of room for interpretation!! Oh . . . and if you look really closely at the above graphic, you’ll get a little “sneak peek” of a fun new “look” being debuted today on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog. So, you should totally pop on over to see the whole look after you’re done here. It’s amazing!! (The new design was created by Karen Baker, the brilliant mind behind MY blog design – she’s a genius, I tell ya!)
This week’s sponsor is Theresa Momber, an amazing illustrator and designer for Gina K. Designs. Theresa has supplied a wonderful prize for this week’s TGIF Winner, but you’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to see what it is. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure and check out the yummies that the other Girl Fridays have created for your inspiration. Thank you, Theresa Momber!
I love looking at a sketch and thinking about it in unique ways – I flip it, I turn it, I think of other shapes – anything to make it “unexpected”. KWIM? So, of course, I had to flip the sketch. Then I had to remind myself that I didn’t have to use two squares for the elements. They could be anything!! Right?! So, I cut a window and frame with my Vintage Labels 2 dies, and stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card. I’ve listed the other products that I used below, if you’re interested.
STAMPS: Friends (Hero Arts), Pretty Peonies (PTI)
INK: Grapefruit and Burano (A Muse Studio), Onyx Black VersaFine (Tsukineko)
PAPER: Lily White and Sour Apply CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest)
ACCESSORIES: Vintage Labels 2 Dies (A Muse Studio)
That’s all I have for you today, kids. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by today. You all rock!!
