MFT Sketch Challenge: Enjoy, life is good.





Don't you love being inspired by others?  This card was thoroughly inspired by Jocelyn + Miriam:

cardstock:  recollections/white/110, cherry wood veneer, stampin' up strawberry slush/gumball green  stamps:  mft lld stay cool, a jillian vance design sunburst swirl background builder ink:  impress turquoise, ranger archival black  other:  mft die-namics lld cool cup, jillibean/studio calico wood veneer, impress sparkle glitter, memorybox stitched circle die 

I literally gasped when I saw THIS card by Jocelyn...seriously though, I always gasp when I see her awesome creations.  When I read about Miriam's Slurpee idea...the wheels started turning.  This past summer my college girl was on a Sour Patch Watermelon Slurpee kick.  I never saw her savoring one she definitely was smitten by them.

I'm so thankful for the internet:


Love the MFT Die-Namics LLD Cool Cup + Stay Cool♡   There are so many possibilities!

See that circular panel?  Glorious cherry wood veneer paper that I'm almost out of...from (RIP) Paper Zone.  Do you see the sprinkling of Impress sparkle glitter on the top of the Slurpee?  

Can't wait for the college girl to receive this with her halloween care package♡

I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge:


Today, depending on the weather, we're either flying HERE or I'm craftin'....either is super fine with me....what's on your schedule for today?
