Happy Anniversary Friday Sketchers


Hello, thank you for visting me today. This week marks the first year anniversary of the Friday Sketcher Challenge blog and there will be a number of prizes to be won. Each DT member will send to a random winner the card we each have made this week as well as a RAK...so please come join us!! This is the RAK that I will be sending some lucky person along with my card made for the Friday Sketcher blog my dear friend Carole provided a wonderful sketch to follow. So come on over and join us for all the fun and challenge and be sure to visit the other DT's blogs and you may get some sneak peeks of their RAKs/surprises also! Just a little note what i have done with my main image. For a fast look to pep up my focal point image i have stamped the Magnolia love letter onto white paper with Memento ink. I mixed on a piece of scrap paper Shimmerz paints in Caramel and Candle light and just brushed the paint over the entire image. It does look really elegant and it was really easy and effortless to make.

You can see all the cards made for the Friday sketcher blog and the RAK's on our Sassy Sketchers Carole, Bea, Heidi, and Jaqueline. I would also use the opportunity to tell you who our new new Sassy girls are:
Jacque Beddingfield visit her at her personal blog Jacque's Joie de Vivre and Jeanette Comerford from Canada her at her personal blog: Happy Thoughts and Inkspots - thanks so much girls for joining us xxx

With my card there are going to be some pop up dots, a new Magnolia stamp, a new Stampin up stamp (which i have picked in anticipation for the new Magnolia Wedding Collection to be released lol) 18 stamped images (all different images with Memento Ink), 22 sheets of 6x6 Prima Marketing "Nursery Tales" Designer Papers all different patterns from the same line... (same papers i have used on my card) and some ribbon strings
Embellishments: Shimmerz paints in Candle light and Caramel, Mellow Moss Taffeta, Prima Marketing "Nursery Tales" flowers
CS/DP: Prima Markeing "Nursery Tales", Going Grey
Shimmerz News:
By popular demand, our special NSD offer has been extended. Now you'll have through Saturday, May 9th to receive a free jar of Pixie Dust Blingz with your retail purchase of $25.00 or more at the Shimmerz Shop.

megastamper said...

oh claudi, meine liebe, deine karte ist ja echt toll geworden und so superschön.
heute morgen musste ich so schmunzeln, wie ich deine karte gesehen habe, unsere beiden karten haben ja doch gewissen ähnlichkeiten: gleicher hintergrundstempel, mit hutnadel und einer schleife ...
dein candy ist ja auch schön und verlockend.
ich wünsch dir ein schönes wocheende.
bussi, bea
