Friday Sketchers Challenge

Happy Friday! Sorry for my lack of postings this week. It is my eldest boy’s birthday today and I have been busy preparing for that. I made him a little keepsake card/easel box and I plan to show you that sometime next week. I used mostly Stampin’ Up stamps on it and distress inks and I {heart} how it turned out. Hope he does too.

Today I have my Friday Sketchers DT card to show you. The sketch is a fabulous one made by the sweet and talented Jacque! I just had to ink up this Magnolia….it has been too long since I colored up one of my Tildas…..I think I was starting to go into withdrawal!

2011 march - Page 041

I pulled out some old Stampin’ Up patterned paper. It was one of the Salebration packs and it just reminds me of Spring. I colored her up to match and added a glitter pens to the little hearts but could not capture the shine with my camera.

Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration. 

Bea, Bev, Claudia, Tanja, Jacque, Janneke, Jorunn, Rach

We hope  you will be able to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog. Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More!

I am off to start preparing tonight’s supper for my birthday boy. His favorites: lasagna, fresh dinner rolls, Caesar salad and of course a birthday cake….vanilla is what he loves!

I am also preparing these Cinnamon Rolls for a special after-school snack. I have already tried this recipe once and my family LOVES them. The bonus is that the recipe yields so many that you can just freeze the extras and pull them out as needed and they are still delicious. I found this on the Pioneer Woman Blog. I leave the coffee out of the icing :) Just click on the picture if you want the recipe but be warned….they are very delicious and your family will start hounding you to make them!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
