SU Simply Sketched with Strawberry Slush

By now, you have probably guessed that SU Simply Sketched is my favorite set in the new catalog! Actually, I may have told you that already.  I wanted to play around with the flower in the set and use some new  favorites also in the new catalog – Strawberry Slush from the In Colors 2013-15  and Quatrefancy DSP.  Here is what I came up with using the layout at Freshly Made Sketches # 93  and the Tic-Tac-Toe grid from Amy’s  The Friday Mash-Up # 117 – Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers …

SU Simply Sketched Mashup!

Below is  a pic of the card before I added the pearls- I like them both but think the pearls added a touch of  fancy to my black tie card. What do you think?

OH GOLLY, IT LOOKS LIKE OTTAWAMOM AND I ARE THINKING ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH. I LITERALLY TOOK A GLANCE AT BOTH SITES BEFORE I POSTED- THEN HAD TO TAKE A DELIVERY AT MY DOOR AND WHEN I POSTED- MY CARD WENT RIGHT NEXT TO BRENDA’S ON BOTH SITES…LOL! NEEDLESS TO SAY, I LOVE YOUR CARD, BRENDA!!

SU Simply Sketched Blue Bird Birthday

I love when a card challenge has a game to play! This week, LeAnne at The Paper Players # 152 gave us a bunch of choices with her tic-tac-toe grid. I just love the SU Simply Sketched Hostess Set and have been using the sentiments with a lot of different sets. However, this time I am using the perched birdie  in the grass and a sentiment from another great Hostess Set- Express Yourself. I got out my blender pens, some watercolor paper, and pretended I was a watercolor artist. I love how SU products enable anyone to be an artist…even me!
