You Make Me Happy

Hello Everyone!!  Today I played along with the Wednesday Sketch Challenge hosted by My Favorite Things.  After I discovered one of my favourite weekly sketch challenges was not continuing this year, I was thrilled to find a new one!!  :)  Although I've been looking at the MFT stamps for some time, it was only recently that I've acquired some of my very own - this adorable Pure Innocence girl comes care of my dear, sweet friend Lori!!  Then just yesterday this fabbo pennant die-namics came to live at my place!!  (Yes, I know the sketch calls for a double scalloped edge - but I wanted to use my new die!)

I started with a base of aqua bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla and some MME paper from my stash.  The five little panels at the bottom are more MME paper and matted with more aqua.  Over this I attached some pink dotty ribbon.  The sentiment is from Being Cute Is What I Do by MFT, stamped on VV and die cut using the Nested Frame Dies by JustRite.  The pennant is made from aqua and vanilla card and I've stamped 'happy' from the sentiment on each one along with the flower from the girl's shirt and 'strung it up' on more pink ribbon.  The image is also from Being Cute Is What I Do and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E33, E35, E37, E97, E50, E53, E000, E01, R20, R83, R85, BG11, BG13, BG72, B91, B93, B95, B97).  She's been cut out and popped up on foam tape on a layer of embossed vanilla matted with more pink.

She's so sweet! You really did her justice. Love that embossed ivory in the background. I have to remember to try that. I've been seeing it around, and it looks so pretty.

Hope all is well and that you are enjoying the last days of break with your kiddos. Much love, sweet friend!

Kathy, thought I'd visit your blog real quick. Wish I could comment on both this and your SCS gallery, but you know how time goes.

Your MFT image is adorable and I just love the way you colored her. The banner came out wonderfully and your colors and dp are beautiful. Great job my friend!

Saw your card on SCS, and I had to come look at your blog! Glad I did and found out what 'Wattle' stood for -- I was thinking it was that extra skin that hung from a turkey's neck!!! :) Have a great day, and thanks for playing the WSC challenge with us this week. Hope you'll keep it up!
