Weekend Sketch Challenge #75 April 3, 2009

Happy Friday to you.  Here is my sample for todays wsc. 


When I first saw this Stampin’ Up! set, Hoppy for You, I had to have it.  I think that frog is too cute.  And the sentiments are funny.  The cardbase is Textured Baja Breeze with a strip of Kraft that I used my SU! Backgrounds I texturz plate to.  I used Linen Thread to create his hopping trail.  Added some Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon and a Corduroy Button to tie it all together. 

Don’t forget to check out these sites to see samples now:

Beate Johns, Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Jenn Balcer, Laurie Schmidlin, Lori Craig, and Sharon Harnist.  They always have amazing creations. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your weekend.
