The Sweet Stop Saturday

Good morning everyone, Happy Saturday to all of you!  I hope you are enjoying a little R&R after a this long and crazy work week.  My plans for the weekend, tons and tons of paperwork, I think I may get buried in it, LOL!  But although my weekend seems to be pre-planned for me I will be sure to sneak some crafty time in there somewhere, don't you worry!  I would certainly self-destruct without my crafty time!

Today we have another great sketch for you from The Sweet Stop.  I always love seeing all the different variations of projects everyone comes up with just by following one simple sketch.  Here's what our sketch for this week looks like.

AND, here's the card I came up with following this week's sketch.  For the image on my card this week I used a La La Land image, Christmas Lantern Marci.  This is the first La La Land image I've ever used and after finishing with it I am sure I will be getting more in the future.

Materials I Used on My Project:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Spellbinder's dies
Glossy Accents
MS Frond Punch
MS Double Border punch

Here's a closer look at my colored Marci.

Now it's your turn to play along.  I can't wait to see what you create from this week's sketch.  Looking for a little more inspiration?  Stop by the blog to see the fabulous projects created for you by the other Sweet Stop Sugar Babies!
