unscripted sketches

hiya chickies! hope you're havin a sunny scrappy happy day...in your part of the world. it's another rainy day here in paradise! yep ~ i'm thinkin i had better find those rubber boots and umbrella ~ i'm beginning to feel like a duck! anyhoo ~ i found an awesome sketch challenge yesterday...'unscripted sketches'. thought i'd jump in and play. there's some scrumptious inspiration there by the dt and there's such a variety of takes on the sketch...i like that! so...here's my card for the challenge. notice...no mags...no sarah kay...whoa...that's different for me ~ but, you know how much i wuv my flowers and lacey ribbon!
here's the sketch
...and here's my take on it
i stamped and handcut the butterfly and roses...

whohoo ~ i actually got to play!

yep...that's right chickies ~ i actually have been doing a 'lil' bit of playing with my goodies. life has been getting in the way lately...so...i had to put a halt to everything...and take some 'me' time! for my card ~ i used this week's 
sketch #138 over at  
sweet sketch wednesday
i played with my new sarah kay stamp dh got me for christmas and those beautiful flowers. 
aren't they... just scrumptious!


i've been doing a lil bit of kniting...juz for fun ~ using up some scraps of wool. i made these lil 'comfort dolls'. they're so easy peasy to make and a good way to up cycle those left over balls of wool. so without further adu i'd like you to meet

well ~ that's all the scrappy creative goodies for now. i'm heading outside today for a campfire and some fresh air. we had a wicked storm last night...and we got some cleanup outside to do, too! yikes...there's a whole lotta branches and trees down ~ BUT , we're safe and that's what counts! have a great week everyone!
