Back to School Crop!!

How has your weekend been so far?  I got a lot of things checked off my "TO DO" list yesterday and plan to spend today "cropping" with a few of my favorite friends over at Sketch N Scrap! Our Back to School Crop kicked off yesterday with an amazing layout sketch challenge and today I am bringing you our second challenge!!  

Today's challenge is a card challenge.  The challenge is to create a card using card sketch #86 by me.  Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies Used: Card stock: Stampin' Up- Pumpkin Pie, Kraft, Chocolate Chip; Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Designs-  Flea Market;  Tag: Recollections; Twine- Stampin' Up; Scallop Circle- Jillibean Soup

I love the way this card turned out! I punched out the little fox from a piece of the Flea Market paper and mounted it on a really old journal spot from Jillibean Soup!  Our crop is going on until September 29th but you have until October 2nd to get your entries submitted for a chance to win a fabulous prize!  I hope to see you at the crop!  Happy creating!

Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style sketch #86

TGIF!!  Aren't you glad it's Friday?  I know I am! That means that I can take some time to catch up and get stuff done that I have neglected this past week and then head into my craft space to do some fun creating!!  Today we have a fun sketch for you over at the Sketches in Thyme PL Style blog!  Here is the sketch by Emma:

Here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin Up Strawberry Slush; Patterned Paper (dot)- Bella Blvd and (pink for butterfly) Bo Bunny; PL card- premade card used for base by We R Memory Keepers; sticker: Bella Blvd; arrow- Recollections, pearls: Recollections; punch: butterfly by Martha Stewart; Die: Lawn Fawn- Hello.

I just had so much fun with this sketch! I can see so many possibilities for it! I know I will use it again soon.  I used a premade PL card that was just blank for my base, then I followed the sketch pretty close just adding a butterfly and arrow to embellish it a bit.  Since I don't have a layout to use this card on just yet I decided against using the embellishment to add my date and instead used it to add a little quote sticker.  This card is so versatile I know it will find it's way onto a layout soon!  Make sure and head over the the Sketches in Thyme Project Lifestyle blog and see what all the other DT members did with this fun sketch!  Happy creating!
