Quick Recovery

Happy Black Friday!!

Are you out hunting for deals? Personally, I stay away from the stores on Black Friday. I can't deal with the crowds or jockeying for a parking spot in the lots. But if you're braving the sales today I wish you the best of luck finding everything on your list.

I needed a get well card for a friend…the same friend who was supposed to host Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. It didn't quite happen though because she ended up in the hospital with a broken leg. Poor thing!! I'm hoping my card will cheer her up.

I started with a Kraft card base then added a layer of Orange Fizz and a layer of Sweet Tooth. I stamped the sentiment from Get Well Wishes (this month's Free with $60 set) directly onto the Sweet Tooth layer using Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink. The flower was cut from Sno Cone using the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics and the leaves were cut from Gumdrop Green using the Layered Leaves Die-namics.

For the Kraft panel along the bottom I stamped the bold "Get Well" and "Feel Better" sentiments from Get Well Wishes using Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I finished it off with a scattering of orange sequins.

Happy Thanksgiving {MFTWSC152}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 152.

Hop over to the MFT Blog for all the details and to link your creation.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the US and we've been invited to have dinner with friends. I thought Pure Innocence Cornucopia was perfect for the thank you card I wanted to go with the hostess gift I'm bringing.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of orchid opulence (SU) and a layer of Kraft. All of the elements were cut out using the Blueprints 8 Die-namics.

For this little sweetie I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured her with copic markers. I fussy cut around her and mounted her on foam tape to the Steel Grey rectangle.

I added two Grape Jelly buttons tied with Hemp Cord, as per the sketch. The dots on the background layer were stamped using the Large Scale Backgrounds and Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

On the inside I added a Sweet Tooth scallop and stamped one of the sentiments from Pure Innocence Cornucopia using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Have fun with this week's sketch and Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers!

Sweet Sunday Greetings

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC198.

I haven't flipped a sketch in quite a while so I thought it was high time I did. In doing so, I wasn't quite sure how the little flag element was going to work out but I'm super pleased with everything. This is card #34 for Project Christmas 2013.

I started with a Primitive White card base then added a layer of Chocolate Brown. I added another layer  of Paver Red because I knew it would tie in nicely with the colours on the poinsettia image.

The image from Inspired by Holiday Botanicals was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with copic markers. I cut out the square using the Pierced Square STAX Die-namics. I thought the image needed to be grounded though so I drew a line with a black copic multiliner to mimic the edge of the table. The tiny banner flag was cut from Chocolate Brown using the Party Banner Die-namics.

Because I flipped the sketch I had plenty of room for one of the sentiments from Inspired by Holiday Botanicals, stamped with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, directly onto the Kraft layer. I added a Chocolate Brown button tied with Hemp Cord to finish it off.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch challenge and link your creation on Karen's Blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
