FMS194 a sketch by Linda

Hey I'm back at Freshly Made Sketches this week...
with a very cool sketch by Linda

They say you can't win if you don't try, I think they're wrong!
 All too often we get caught up in winning that we don't look at the big picture, the enjoyment from making something handmade from someone else!  I love what I do... and win or lose, I'm still gonna make another card tomorrow, and the day after that too!  Although winning doesn't hurt... lol...

Yumm, I love my new stamps from Lawn Fawn, called Treat Yourself!!!!
I got started by coloring in my ice cream and lid... I went with Chocolate Chip (see the chips) colors using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Memento black ink.  I did my sentiment in Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip ink.. and made a little banner with it. Then I started on my shaker card, using my square dies I cut the area that I wanted for it, then I added Doodlebug sequins and Simon Says Stamp seed beads. My paper pad is Carta Bella's Soak up the Sun, and I added some Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi cardstock for the under layer and base, then I grabbed my Whisper White Baker's twine to finish off my project.

Hey I wanted to take a moment to mention... my friends Andrea, Justin, Tina, and the gang are all part of the the OSAT Blog Hop, which starts at 6:30AM ...check out the hop! 

Thanks for stoppin' by
