My Favorite Things Sketches

Hello Friends!  As I said in my last post, things have been quite busy here this week.  In fact, things have been so busy that I had my card finished for last week’s sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club, and I didn’t have a chance to post it…ugh!  I had a little time today to work on this week’s sketch, so I thought that I’d post both cards together.  Here is the card for last week’s sketch.

I used the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Freckles set.  She is colored up with Copic Markers (B0000, B21, B34, E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, E40, R11, R29, and R39) and paper pieced with some prints from the Summer Fresh collection from Simple Stories.  In fact, all of the patterned papers are from that collection.  The blossom was made with the MFT Botanical Beauty Die-namics and for the leaves, I used the MFT Vintage Flourish Die-namics.  I dressed up the center of the flower and the sentiment flag with some Papertrey Ink Buttons and Baker’s Twine.  A little bit of sewing finishes off the main panel.  Now for this week’s sketch. 

This card is for my dear husband.  I used my friend, Fred Bear on this one.  He is colored up with Copic Markers (E31, E33, E35, G07, R11, and Y21) and fussy cut out.  The sentiment and this Fred image are from the Fred Bear and the Pinwheel set from My Favorite Things.  I made the pinwheel with the Pinwheels CutUps from The Cat’s Pajamas.  All of the patterned papers are from My Little Shoebox.  My accents include Papertrey Ink Buttons and Baker's Twine, May Arts Polka Dotted Ribbon, and the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  If you would like to play along with this sketch, you can find all of the details to do so on the My Favorite Things blog.  Here is the link. 
Thanks so much for visiting with me this evening!  I hope that you had a terrific weekend.  I'll be back soon.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
