Challenge at Flourishes

Flourishes is having a sketch challege and that is a challenge I am trying out for. You can check it out on their location by clicking on their name in the beginning of this discertation. As you can see I have done my interpretation of it below.




Being a good follow the leader type gal that I am, I decided to give it a try. My sweet friend Tammy Hershberger sent me this sweet, adorable paper pad from Basic Grey called Lemonade and she's been wondering when this old broad was going to put it to good use soooo....dear friend here it is, I'm starting to put it I hope, to good use. Since I was a little "sketchy" about trying to change up my card too much I followed it as called for. Well nobody really called me about it but you know what I mean... I guess, or hope you get it somewhat. I used the cherries & phrase from Flourishes wonderful fruity set called Peaches & Cherries which I plan to keep using even though our summer fruits are disappearing. When I say the fruits are diappearing I mean the fruits we eat....unfortunately the other ding bat type fruits are still around. I can see using these cherries even as winter approaches by adding some glitter to make it look like frozen fruit, now isn't that a fruit-loopy idea??? I think it will work, just wait and see. I made my mats with my Nestie's fancy rectangular shape ( really love it) and of course when there is a bow...what better little tricky appliance then the Bow Easy. Made this one by making a double one using some wonderful chiffon red ribbon from good ole Mike's place. Be sure and click on the Flourishes name to get all the details about this sketch challenge as they are giving some sets away as a prize or candy or whatever you want to call it. Nice!
Hope your weekend is going well. Mine is going to be trying to clean up the drywall dust mess.
For a bit of fun...correction bite of fun, I plan to take my little neighbor girl out to the ice cream parlor for a birthday treat. This parlor serves you one scoop that could serve 2 people it is sooo large. The kids love it and hey I'm still a kid at heart.
