Well she's all you'd ever want, she's the kind they'd like to flaunt and take to dinner...

Sorry I'm sliding in late with my Sketch for You to Try card today! Josh let me sleep in, and you know I'm a procrastinator. So here we are! And of course, I couldn't do a quick and easy one. I DID manage to follow the sketch though, so doesn't that make it better? *grin*

I pulled out one of my Chichiboulie Fairies, Patricia Birthdaycake, for this card...I think she's perfect!
She went perfectly with this paper from DCWV Nana's Nursery collection. It's YUMMY!! Oh, and see the ribbon? That was my find of the week last week. It's 3/8" Satin ribbon from Target in the Club Wedd section. They have a TON of colors, including one that matches Cool Caribbean, and a yummy chocolate brown. And it was $2.99 a roll for 15 yards. Cool, huh?

Anywho, make sure you take a peek at what Jen (& our fab guest Toni) did with this sketch, as well as Amy, Carole, & Susan. They rock! If you upload to SCS, be sure to use the keyword SFYTT so we can find your creations!

You make me laugh!! About a month ago I was in Target and found the "COOL" ribbon in the Club Wedd section and went crazy! I bought over 1/2 the colors and then the next week I took my SU! card stock swatches with me to see if the other colors matched... so I'm not the only one for a GOOD DEAL at $2.99 for 15 yards. Super cute card by the way!!! I have to stamp TONIGHT... no hubby! Michelle :)

PS- I received my Summer Take Ten yesterday and seen a couple of your cards!! (I’m thinking… I know I’ve seen a card made b/4 like this and looked at the name and had a big smile… hey I know her!)
