Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #55

Hello Friday! I'm sorry for the horrible photo, when the sun pops out, I'll take another. I confess, it's late Thursday night and I didn't get any time this week to work on the sketch. I don't know if it's the size of the card (I always struggle with the long ones) or because it's the end of the week, or because I'm tired, but this just didn't come together easy. I'm still not completely satisfied. Well, what do ya do? You post anyway because it's a challenge and it's Beate. LOL. I can't let down Beate. =D

So, you know the drill right? Check out the sketch, play along if you can, upload to SCS so we can all see your creation. Want some inspiration? These gals ALWAYS inspire me:

Charmaine Ikach

Jenn Balcer
Laurie Schmidlin

Lori Craig

MaryJo Albright

Sharon Harnist

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Uspy Daisy.
Paper: Georgia Peach Designer Paper, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White.
Ink: Stampin Write Markers, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Copic Markers (background with the Airbrush System).

er: Crafter's Tool Kit, Top Notch Die (SU!), Nesties, Big Shot, Cuttlebug With Gratitude, Old Olive Brads, Banana Brads, Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals
, Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Punch, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-Pal, Copic Airbrush System.

Okay, so I am on coundown... I'm not kidding, only a few more days and the kids get on the bus baby. Everyone is excited to go back to school. I think we are going to stay home this weekend and just hang out, get the laundry caught up and get geared up for school. I'd love to get some stampin done, but I'm not counting on it.

Hope you have a super weekend! Enjoy that extra day off!!!
