Party like a rock...party like a rock star...

Happy Saturday, yall! It's that time again...time for another Sketch for You to Try! We're also welcoming a new guest for February...the amazing Jody Morrow! I'm a huge fan of Jody's and can't wait to see what she comes up with.

I promised another announcement today, and I won't keep you guessing. Today marks the last of my adventures as part of the Sketch for You to Try team. I have enjoyed playing along with my girlfriends for a long time now, and I will continue that when time permits. But one of my New Years Resolutions is to simplify, and part of that means reigning back on some commitments to focus on my family and myself. Boy, that's hard to say! Now before you get all worried, I'm fine, and so is the fam. Just doing a little reorganization, that's all. K? Part of my new adventure, as some of you already know, is that I have taken a position with Stamping Bella as a wholesale rep. Fun, right??? Soon (hopefully) you'll see Bellas and Chichis and Tiddlys and Huggabuggs all over the place! I'm gonna be a bizzy sistah!

Ok, so enough jabbering, on with the card! Here's my take on this week's sketch.
Now, I know it's not my normal pink & brown (seems like I've been on a pink & brown kick for a while, right?), but it sure is fun. I recently got this Rock Star set (thanks to all my Jacksonbelle enabling sistahs) from Inkadinkado, and thought it would be fun paired with this Prima paper. Both of which are apparently gone from the JBE store...sad! But no worries, there are plenty of other goodies there to be snatched, and it's all 30% off! You can check out all the details HERE. The twill is my favorite part...I took it off of a Patron Citronage bottle and saved it from impending trash doom, knowing it would come in handy one day. Gotta love it! I also broke out some of my Distress Stickles which have been sadly neglected.

Well, it's late and I'm pooped, so I'm off to dreamland. You can see the sketch and Jen's sample along with Jody's on Jen's blog. Then, don't forget to visit my girls Amy R, Amy S, Carole, Kelly, and Susan for more eye candy with the sketch. As always, if you play along, use the keyword SFYTT to make your creations easy to find, k?

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

I wish you could have heard my gasp as I first looked at your sfytt card---totally rockin' awesome! And look at you, following the sketch to a T, he he! The colors, the texture, the stars and that sentiment flanked by the textured bg--so flippin' my lid!

Sad to see you go, but happy that you're sticking to your NYR!

Well aren't you just one of the luckiest girls on the planet! Working for Emily! How exciting is that!!!...I'm sure this will entail a trip to southern Ontario in the future, or even if you get to Toronto I would be so willing to go on a roadtrip! Hope to finally meet you one day...it's on my list of things to do before I'm too old to do anything! LOL!!! Congrats on your new venture!
