TESC 109 - Floral Thank You

Hi everyone! Sorry for my silence this week...wow! The week really flew by and I just was completely MOJO-less. Man, and when you lose it, it's hard to get it back! I had a doozy trying to photograph this too...my puppy ran through the wire of one of my photograph lamps and broke the bulb. :( Blah blah...but you don't want to hear my boo-hooing! How about the sketch for this week instead?


Isn't that such a cute sketch?! I'm afraid I just don't think I did it any kind of justice, but whatever! :) Here's my take....I REALLY wanted to play with another fabric made flower.


I used Chiffon this time for a softer look than the organza. What do you think?
I stamped more of my new favey set, Miniature Motifs on the top panel in Pink Pirouette for a background and my sentiment is from CreativiTEA...I know...AGAIN! LOL! The large butterfly is a Maya Road one that you can find in the store HERE. And I just noticed it's out of stock...no worries though! Click "Request re-stock notice" and you'll be notified when it's back. :)


So any fun plans for this weekend? We may be taking the kiddos to a berry farm for funsies if the weather plays nice. I hope it does because I think the kids would looooove it! Apparently there are a lot of kid-related activities to do there...aside from pigging out on your own hand-picked strawberries. And last night, I got to spend a lovely evening with my girlfriends and kiddos eating dinner together. You know...it's really nice to just get together with the ladies and chat. I'm wishing we did that more often. Sadly, one of my friends will be moving to Houston soon and I'm currently in denial. Seeing her empty house tonight really hit home. I'm not mentally prepared for her family to leave!

Anyway, let's check out what the rest of the sketch crew came up with. Everyone is so unique with their styles and I LOVE that about our group! I just love to see what we all come up with, so go now! Check it out!

Oh Melissa, your shabby chic cards are wonderful! I adore that flower! I love making flowers, too. I'll have to give chiffon a try. So lovely. So peaceful.

Have a great weekend!
