Crazy4Challenges and Speedy's Friends Challenge

Silke challenged the Crazies to a sketch challenge this week.  I love sketches, so this was right up my alley, so to speak.  I used an image by our sponsor, Sparkle Creations

I also played with some new dp I bought on my recent trip to Cape Cod.  Had to stop at Colorful Creations in Hyannis once I knew there was a LSS to visit.

Now I hope you have some time to check out the rest of the Crazies at our team blog.  AND.....please use the links in my sidebar to visit the individual member's blogs.



Our Speedy's Friends challenge this week was to use both dry and heat embossing AND to pop part of our image.  I used dry embossing on the striped panel, heat embossing on the main image and the sentiment, and I popped the center portion of the sun.
 
I used an image and sentiment from the Mark's Finest Papers set called HELLO SUNSHINE.
 
You should take a moment to stop in to the team blog to see the fabulous creations by the rest of the Speedy's Friends team.  And......once again, you will find links to the team members blogs in my sidebar.
