TGIF!!! Are you ready for the weekend? Are you planning/hoping for some crafting time? I am! Actually, I'm going to an all-day crop with my new bestie friend Betty Roberts (aka Betty Boo!) and her sweet daughter Rio. I'm not sure I'll last for 12 hours, but I'll do my best! No doubt we'll do some cards in addition to scrapbooking. Betty brings everything so I don't have to. Haha!!

Something that will make your weekend card making easier and more fun is the newest Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! I love mixing patterned paper, so this is a fun sketch for me. I used the cute "Friend" stamp from Sweet Occasions. I LOVE this set, which was conceived by Jami Sibley and designed by Nancy McKinney.

The designer paper is from a retired Key Ingredients kit... I think it was the Valentine one and is by My Mind's Eye. The felt flower is from the Sugar Rush Woolies collection by Basic Grey. I put a little flower rhinestone over the flower in the main image, and I used a Copic Blender Pen to make the green "frame" look spotted.

Why not come and play with us this week? Before you do, be sure to check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created with this fun image:

And don't forget to check out all the new goodies Fresh Out of the Oven at Taylored Expressions! It's new release time again, and... as usual... the new stamp sets ROCK!!!

Have a great day!

Hi Lisa, you always make it look so easy (deceptive I know!!).... using colour (GASP) and pulling it all together. Love the papers and the choices you've made. Hope you have a great day today
