My Favorite Things Sketch

It's Thursday, so it is time for another My Favorite Things sketch to be announced. I am LOVING this week's sketch, and as soon as I saw it I HAD to get to work. This week's sketch was provided by Cindy, who you know just rocks!! I started by stamping my Cupcake Flopsey on and MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored him in with my Copics and cut it out using my Oval Nesties and Cuttlebug. I then decided to color another Flopsey, cut out just the top half of him(from his cupcake up), and then added it onto the original Flopsey. That allowed me to make my cupcake, which was paper pieced with some My Mind's Eye DP, to hang over the DP panel. The colors of CS are Pumpkin Pie and Cool Caribbean. All my ribbons are from SU, and the brads are as well. All punches used for my sentiment panel are from SU too, as well as the scalloped edge at the bottom. Isn't it cute?? I was sorta proud afterwards, especially with my bow!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by!!

It's Jessica's Birthday, woot woot!!

Today is my good friend, and fellow Prettie Girl-Jessica Diedrich's birthday, and you KNOW we pretties LOVE our birthday hops, so of course we had to have one today to celebrate our girl Jessica, LOVINGLY known as NJ(if you want to know, she may tell you)!! The Hop started at Christie's Blog, so you need to go there to get started!! For her party today, I of course had to use Pink and Butterflies...cause they ARE her favorite!! I started by stamping my Flutterby Sophia on an MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored it in with my Copics, and layered it with Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive. The butterfly was cut out separately and then added on. I added some white brads, ribbon from SU, and used my SU oval punches to do my sentiment. The sentiment is ACTUALLY from Jessica's very own set recently released by The Greeting Farm. The DP is from the Razzleberry Lemonade pack from SU.
Well, that is it for me it is time to hop on, so head on over to Julie's blog!!
Here is a list of the blog hop participants, just in case there is a break or you get lost along the way!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go wish Jessica a HAPPY BIRTHDAY at the end!!
