For A Great Friend -Sketch Saturday Challenge #196 -Sponsored By The Craft Barn!!

New weekend, new sketch! Yay!!
Keeping it short today as I haven't been feeling too good. I haven't really been online much this past week or even Facebook...which is a big thing for me, lol! Started a new diet last week and my tummy has just not been feeling too I have the case of the grumps. My mojo runs away when I'm!! Think I just need some chocolate and it will come back!

Hopefully I and the Saturday Girls can inspire you to all play along with Jo's fab sketch this week!

Kinda stepped out of my comfort zone with my card this week...hubby says my card looks goth! I don't think it looks goth...I thought it turned out cute??? Think it may just be all the black I

The super gorgeous image is from "Saturated Canary" and can be found HERE! Krista has the most beautiful digi stamps to play with...I'm becoming hooked as I have been coloring up a lot of her images while I haven't been feeling good this week!

More views...I heat embossed the sentiment with sparkly kaleidoscope embossing powder! Don't like the way my bow turned I covered it up with a brad, flowers and a butterfly
