Whew, it's Friday!  and I can now take a breath and focus on just crafting!  It's a true fun filled weekend for me.  It's the first day of the fall rubber stamp retreat.  Yep, three days of non stop crafting.  Your choice of what you craft, you bring what you want to work on.  Un-interupted crafting time, no chores to get done, no meals to make, no dishes to wash, and no children to take care.  
But, before I get my craft supplies loaded into my car, and start a weekend filled with girl time, laughs,  no sleep, and crafting, 
I wanted to share a card I created for the latest sketch @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Kim is this week's designer of the sketch, and I have to say, Kim did a fabulous job creating a very user friendly sketch.

and here is what I created

For this card, I tried to keep it pretty flat.  So, it could be mailed easily!  I used a few different stamp sets to create this card.  I stamped the label piece, from Everything Eleanor in baked brown sugar.  I then stamped two blossoms with versa mark ink, onto pink pirouette cardstock, and then added white embossing powder.  I heat embossed the blossoms, and fussy cut them with scissors.  For the leaves, I used the Gently Falling stamp set.  The leaf outlines were stamped with baked brown sugar, and the body of the leaf was stamped with pistachio ink.
I cut two banner pieces out of a few scrap pieces of patten paper.  I added a few lines of machine stitches to add a little home-y touch.  and then a few pearls.  
For the sentiment, I stamped a postage stamp and a itty bity banner piece.
I hope that you get some inspiration from the design team.  We really have quite a few different crafting styles.  I hope that you get a chance to play along with us this week @ SFF!
