Friday has been good to me!

It's Friday! My daughter was awesome for me today when we were running errands. And my son got to go play at a friend's house. So that bought me a little extra free time. And as I was checking out some of the blogs I like, I noticed that at Susan's Day Off Creations, she issued a combined sketch and color challenge! Oooh, my free time just turned into stamping time! Here is a link to her challenge:

I was really excited to play along, and was glad for some extra inspiration. The main image stamp is from IBrakeForStamps.com. http://www.ibrakeforstamps.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=1906&Category_Code=SCEN. I really think it's a beautiful stamp, and there are a lot of versatile uses for it. The quote is from Cloud 9. The solid brown and blue paper are from Die Cuts With A View, and the patterned green paper is from scrapbooks.com, called Cutie Pie Flip-Flop Papers. On her sketch, she free-handed the line. But I used my BoBunny Flex Ruler I bought a long time ago, because it was on sale. The blue brads I had stored with my embellishments, and so I'm not sure of the brand. I colored the image with various Derwent Aquatone colored pencils I have. I hope you like what I've created.

Rebecca, Thanks so much for taking my challenge. And so fast too! Great job on both the sketch and the color challenge. And how clever to use a flex ruler. I have one, but who knows where it got too ;-).
