A {Sunny} Sketch For You To Try

Well, today is my favorite stamping day--Jen's Sketch For You To Try! There are a few changes coming starting in January for the SFYTT, and we'll talk about that more next week. For these first two weeks of December (next Saturday will be the last one for this year), however, we are just looking back and using a past sketch that we loved. I know ya'll have some favorites, so playing along this week and next won't be an option (teehee.)!

As ya'll know, yesterday was a new release from VERVE and for the last two days, I've been giving ya'll little tastes of what the new sets look like and how they can be used. Today is no different, other than I've combined it with Jen's Sketch For You To Try. Sorry I missed the party last night, but my daughter was singing in a Christmas Around the World program at school, which was followed by busting a giant pinata and eating nachos. Can you tell it was very Feliz Navidad-ish? We had a fun time! Then I had promised a friend I'd stop by her Creative Memories workshop to donate some stuffed animals for a charity she is connected with (all part of my de-cluttering!). However, the girls were with me and Audrie ended up reclaiming a couple of those stuffies before leaving. Sheesh!

Seems like Jen and I had similar ideas for our cards today, as we used the same set/same sentiment from our new Verve sets. Totally not planned, but fun to see how we used them so differently. The set is the same one as I used yesterday, Text Objects. I took cues from the sentiment-quote and made a little sun by using the Sunshine Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I used an older sketch from September. You can see the original post of it on Jen's blog HERE and my original take on it HERE.

We'd love for ya'll to play along as we take a look back at some past favorite SFYTT sketches! Here's what the SFYTT sisters came up with, along with a couple of familiar faces that you probably know who are also playing with us today:

and Ana and Joanne, too! Thanks girlies!!!

SUSIE-Q-TIP: Do not try and donate things from your 7 year old's room with her present, even though she's the one who originally put the items to be donated in the box for charity. She will take one look at them, love them all over again and give you 12,000 reasons why she needs to keep them. I kinda liked that little eskimo-bear stuffie, too. Fortunately for Audrie and him, he's been rescued. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't help my purging the house effort.
