Frankin' Fun...

Good morning, and happy Friday!

Where did this week go?

And how about those Cardinal's?  Early in the game, I couldn't figure out if we were watching Little League, or the Bad News Bears, but wowee - guess it's that final score that matters!

I have a little Frankin' Fun for you today, from My Time Made Easy.  This is one of Lauren's great digi images. I have to tell you that my Halloween stamps are very limited.  So when I saw this cute digi a couple of weeks ago, I grabbed it.  I'd actually forgotten it, when their sketch challenge was posted.  Decided to give myself a bit of creative therapy yesterday, and color it up!  Here's what I did with the sketch - turned it on the end, and in place of a ribbon and bow, I used cardstock strip and bats.






The cardstock is all from the Authentique "Glowing" collection, which I purchased from Joan's Gardens.  The teensy little bats are from Amuse, which my friend Shirley sells.  Aside from the Bazzilll Basics card itself, that's it!  Easy, peasy....cheap therapy!  Coloring is done with Copics, sponging with several colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Hope your day is wonderful - thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Food for thought:  People take lots of different roads in life.  Remember that just because they aren't on your road, doesn't mean that they are on the wrong road.

Cute as can be, like how you used the sketch, I would spin it also-does that mean we are odd?
Thanks again for the heads up this morning.
Hope you have a great weekend.
