My Time Saturday Sketch

Happy Saturday everyone! I only have two more weekends before school is done and I'm off for the summer! Can you tell I'm getting excited? I'm just thinking of all the time I'll have for more stamping and creating! These next few weeks will be a whirlwind as usual.
Card Making

Well, on with this great sketch Lauren provided today. I love her sketches...so easy to follow.

Here's my interpretation of the sketch minus the sentiment. It didn't fit because of my large flowers!

I used PTI's new set called Bird Watching. When I saw the two birdhouses in this set, I was sold! I love them! This one was colored with copic markers after I chose the dp, which is SU's Parisian Breeze Specialty paper. I love this paper because the the weight, texture and fab designs. I added some sparkle with a Sakura gelly roll pen. The flowers are primas (to which I also added some sparkle with the gelly roll pen), the buttons are from PTI's new release, and the ribbon is SU's chocolate chip grosgrain. The bird's nest is NOT real! It came from something I received as part of a gift, and I thought it would be perfect to add to the picture for staging. It matches perfectly!

Now here is the collage peek of the cards the DT created.
Why don't you stop by the DT blogs and see what their peeks really look like? Here they are.
If you decide to play, post your direct link to Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog, and if you post your card to SCS/PCP, please use the code mytimess33 so we can find it.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy your weekend! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow because I'll have another PMS peek for you. We've saved the best (IMO) for last...the fairies! And there are some fabulous new ones you'll not want to miss seeing! We'll also have a blog hop all day and a release party starting at 4:00 est. See you tomorrow!
