Happiness Is You - May SFYTT

Today, the Sketch For You To Try girls get to unveil the new May sketch and sponsor, plus welcome both our May guest designer and our newest SFYTT sister!

For my sample, I used the adorable Tea Time Fhiona. Seeing Fhiona lovin' on that sweet cat reminds me so much of my daughter and our family cat, Rocki. I did my coloring with Copics and chose papers from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose line (Hazel, I think?). Embellishments include an Open Scallop Border die-cut (My Favorite Things), stitching, buttons, twine (The Twinery), and some turquoise bling from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Have a great weekend! I'm taking off in a few to meet and hang out with one fabulously talented stamper and all-around amazing person -- Kristin Eberline! I'll try to remember to take a picture!

1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”
