TESC 120 -

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week and enjoyed the sneaks and big release over at Taylored Expressions. I had a seriously enjoyable week! I got to have a total "me" day on Wednesday with my good and very dear friend, Valeria! We were totally childless, so we enjoyed an almost full day of Starbucks in the morning, Eclipse, lunch, and a bit of shopping over at Archivers. :) I can't rave enough about how nice it was! It was a very enjoyable break from the kiddos! Anywho, you are probably here to see the sketch for the week and peruse the samples, yes?? Here's the fun sketch for ya...

And here is my sample!


Just a little something quick that I threw together....after tossing TWO other sketch cards in the trash, that I had high hopes for, LOL! Don't ya hate it when that happens?? Oh yeah...just something quick to mention. See my butterfly on the flower there? It's actually 2 pieces of glimmer glass by Tattered Angels. I've been sitting on a box of these for a while, but it says that you can spritz these for added color. Yeah...I tried that. I knew what would happen too...so my question is...how the heck do you add color to these?! How are you using them? The spray just wiped right off (as expected.) I assume you need to use some kind of acrylic paint on them? Please leave me a comment with a photo or some ideas on how you've used them, if you have!

Thanks guys! Hope you have a GREAT weekend!

Oh! Don't forget to check out the samples from the rest of the sketch crew. We have a new member, who is no stranger to the TE Sketches! No stranger to me either. :)
Welcome Rosie to the team!

Lovely card Melissa. I am totally jealous you got to go to Archivers. I am having withdrwals since we moved. The closest one is 4 hours away. Makes me very sad.
