Party Time ~ Sketch Saturday

Happy Week-end everyone! I love to start my Saturday off with a cup of coffee and grab a few minutes to see the Sketch Saturday posting....and take a look at the entries so far. You have to remember that I am in Canada, so 8:00 am for me is actually 1:00 pm for you. By the time I am up...a lot of you amazing stampers have already completed your cards!

It is the end of the month, so our fabulous regular sponsor, The Craft Barn is generously offering this week's prize of two Whiff of Joy stamps from the new Medieval Collection. These are adorable and if you notice, I have used the Jester from the same collection for my card this week!

Now, I will be honest, I was intimidated by all those CIRCLES! Yikes! Then I remembered I had some circle makers from Creative Memories and they got the job done quickly. I used my Crop-o-dile to create the very small ones. As you can see, I got somewhat carried away but, they are supposed to be the rest of the Jester's balls. Don't worry if you don't have any tools to make circles. You could use patterned paper of even little gemstones or dewdrops!


  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy Medieval Collection, Sentiment from SU - Lots of Thoughts
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versacolor Green Tea
  • Paper: SU Cardstock, Daisy Bucket DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers & Copic Airbrushing
  • Embellies: SU Ribbon, Glossy Accents for the Jester's Balls


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your week-end is wonderful and that wherever you are, the weather is lovely. Here is the sketch for you to follow and please stop by the blogs of the rest of the Sketch Saturday DT. Their work is fabulous and so inspirational!

Morning Jeanette!
Whoever made up the saying 'blue and green should never be seen' certainly hadn't seen your beautiful creation. I love this card. Your colouring is impecable as always. I just adore the way you have used the circles in your design to 'tell the story' great!
