Timeless Tuesday...sketch challenge by Silke

Well today's challenge for Timeless Tuesday is a sketch challenge by Silke and you can see what I did to the sketch below.
I guess I deviated somewhat but did manage to get all the elements in anyway...I just switched them up a bit. You can see the sketch challenge deets at Flourishes by clicking here. I once again used the calendar set which as you can see by now I am loving. Very versatile and to me...just the right size stamp to use on die cuts. I chose the crocus and just did a bit of water coloring with my good old pencils. The verse is from Flourishes Gerbera Daisy set. Ran my white through the swiss-dot embossing folder that Cuttlebug puts out and after using a few Spellbinder cuts I'm good to go. Add some fancy pantsy ribbon, some blingers and wahoo!!! Fini.
Went to the gym today to work out with all the hunky, muscle chunky guys who are so much fun. They come to the machines and I play dumb and I've got them instructing me for FREE ! Now that's pretty clever if you ask me and if you don't ask me well that' Ok too. I have one favorite that comes up to the stair step machine and yells...Come on Mama, you've got to burn it. Here's these young chicky do's going a mile a minute and there's me just barely moving. I am trying and I am getting better. Lost some good poundage so far but have to keep at it.
Well happy week fellow stamper.

I love the fact that those "muscle guys" think they are the experts on using the machines! And you are playing their game and winning! Sounds like you might be a "cougar" in the making!!! Go Girl!
