Happy Birthday Friday Sketchers!

Sugar Nellies - Page 026
Can you believe that this amazing challenge is turning 1 today! This challenge is what motivated me to start a blog in the first place. I loved all the sweet images that the Design Team were using and I just loved stopping by every week to see their gorgeous work. Soon, I wanted to start participating in the challenges and I finally got up enough nerve to start a blog! Am I ever glad I did! I have met the most amazing people from all over the world and now am on some pretty amazing Design Teams!
As most of you probably know, Friday Sketchers had a call for a Guest Designer. Of course I applied. I am so excited to tell you that I was asked to join Friday Sketchers as a Permanent DT! Oh my gosh!!! I can’t believe it. I am so delighted and honored! Yippee! The DT is so talented and of course, the wonderful Claudia has been such an incredible source of inspiration and help for me. What a treat to be working with her!
To celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the Friday Sketchers Challenge there will be a number of prizes to win. Each DT will send their card for this week as well as a RAK to a selected winner. So I will be giving this card away and I am going to add some of my favorite DP, flowers.  Sound yummy? So head on over and join us for all the fun and enter the challenge. This is a little bit like a scavenger hunt. You will have to do some blog hopping and be sure to visit all the other DT's blogs and you may get some sneak peeks of their RAKs/surprises also! Here is the link to Friday Sketchers and you’ll find all the other DT members listed there! Here is my RAK and you will also get the card that you see at the beginning of this post.

Here is my card recipe:

  • Stamps: Sugar Nellie by Funky Kits
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Pink Pirouette, Majenta DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers, Copic Airbrushing
  • Embellies: May Art Ribbon, Dollar Store Flowers, Bling by Westrim Crafts
Here’s the wonderful sketch that was created by Carole! Can’t wait to see what you all do with it!
