TSG Sketch Challenge!!!

Happy Wednesday you all!!!

This card is for this weeks There She Goes Sketch Challenge - TSG15. Jessica has designed this awesome Sketch for us and I hope you all get a chance to play along!?!

Swing by Jessica's blog and find out all the details!!

Here is my take on it....

















I used the Flowers of Happiness Set for it. I thought I'd give the other new SU In-Colors a try since I've been stuck on the Razzleberry Lemonade DP - LOL!!! I started out by inking the leaves with Soft Suede. The flower base is Soft Suede as well and then I colored them with matching Copic and Prisma Markers.

Talking about TSG....I had the pleasure of meeting my blogging friend Nina Brackett this Monday!!! Some of you probably already know/met Nina......if not let me tell you she is sooooo super sweet and I'm so glad she took time out of her busy vacation time just to meet up with me!!! I also had the pleasure of meeting her husband, her three gorgeous daughters and their friend Irena as they joined us a little bit later on!!! ~Thank you Nina - I had so much fun meeting you and your family!!! Enjoy the rest of your time here in GA :) !!!~
















Nina designed this super awesome TSG Set - Cupcake Mix & Match - that I absolutely love!!! That's not all - she just recently released this fabulous Elegant Post Set for Gina K. and guess what??? - Nina gave me this Set as a present when we met :)!!! I was soooo touched and honored that she gave it to me - I love it and will cherish it forever!!! I'll have a card for you this Friday - hope you'll be back to check it out!?!

If you want to find out more about my sweet friend Nina - swing by her blog and check out her fabulous designs - you won't be disappointed!!! Plus find out what she's been up to while traveling here in the US!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
