I Cheated!



If you live anywhere in the state of Virginia or parts of western Maryland, you may have heard the squeals emanating from the Sheffer house Tuesday afternoon when I opened an email from Jen del Muro asking if I'd be interested in getting her weekly SFYTT sketches early and joining her and her friends Carole Burrage, Shannan Teubner, and Susan Liles in posting samples along with her sketches. Would I? Oh baby WOULD I! How fun is that?!

That said, I'm feeling like I SO cheated this week. When her sketch came, I was in the midst of creating Sue's blocks, so I had these little 2" x 2" canvases on the brain, and naturally translated her sketch into more of the same. Doesn't it make for a wild, crazy, fun card, though? You know what I love most about this card and the original altered blocks? They use bright colors (big phobia #1) AND designer paper (big phobia #2)!

THANK YOU Jen, for inviting me to participate! Now don't forget to go check out the sketch and Jen's sample first, and then Carole's, Shannan's, and Susan's interpretations. And then, go stamp! If you upload to SCS, use the keyword "SFYTT" so everyone can see everyone else's all in the same place.

Stamps: Live Your Dream, Amazing to Zany
Paper: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Purely Pomegranate, Bali Breeze dp
Ink: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: styled silver hodgepodge hardware, felt fusion flowers, purely pomegranate double-stitched ribbon, dimensionals, sponge daubers, small oval punch, rose red, tempting turquoise, old olive brads
All supplies by Stampin' Up. Size 5" square.
