Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 107

Ahhh...hi there everyone! Am I in a good mood? Oh yes I am! It's Friday, and even better, it's GOOD FRIDAY!! :) I have my kiddos home with me today for the start of a 4 day weekend. Big plans? Nah! Although Monday I may drag them to get some photos taken!

Were you able to complete a card for the sketch challenge last week for a prize?! I certainly hope so! I'd also loooove it if you leave a comment on my blog here letting me know that you played! I want to come see and give you some love. :)

But onward we go with the new sketch for the week.


And here is my interpretation. :)


The flower was so much fun to make!! I had actually seen a tutorial on this waaay back on Mona's blog HERE and I'd been meaning to try one out myself, but just never got around to it. She always has such beautiful handmade flowers on her cards and I always love them! This one was made with glittered organza, but I want to try my hand at a different fabric soon.... :)


The paper used is from the Easter Key Ingredients and the sentiment comes from the set Beary Special. I created this with Leslie from A Creative Mint in mind. She's had such a huge tragedy come down on her and my heart just aches for her loss. No other words to share on this....it's just heartbreaking to me.

On another note....spring is DEFINITELY in full swing here in Texas. The pollen is doing a number on me! And ladies, it's time to get those razors back on those legs, LOL! I actually broke a bit of a sweat the short time I was out "hiding" eggs for my son's school egg hunt today. Ok...I must confess, you merely utter the word "sweat" and it pours from me. I sweat like a man....sigh. The "sweat-stache" is a look for me during the summer....and not on purpose! You know how hard it is to keep makeup on when you're constantly sweating it off?! Ok, I've totally digressed...and about sweat...WHAT?!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend (and Easter!) I sooo appreciate your visit...and I hope my sweat-stache hasn't scared you away! LOL!
