My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

FSS - Emma in the Strawberry Parch


Here is another creation with the fabulous Fred She Said pre-colored images. This one is called Emma in the Strawberry Parch.
It's hard to see in the picture, but I printed out Emma and a variety of sizes of strawberries several rimes, cut them out and layered with foam tape.

My inspiration for this card came from the Friday Sketch Challenge. 

I have been commissioned to make some post-it-note holder cards so I turned the card into an easel card and added a matching post-it-note pad. The previous post had the first one I made like this.

I will be making many of this style in the coming weeks for my Etsy shop as they make perfect Christmas Gifts. I think I should have started on them months ago. If only we didn't have to eat and sleep!!! *Ü*

The papers are all retired for CTMH. The red crystals are actually clear ones from CTMH that I colored with a Copic Marker.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss..

Stop by tomorrow to see another one with Petunia's and Humming birds.
