The February SFYTT Is Here!


Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!

It's the first Saturday of the month and that means a new SFYTT sketch!  Meet the February SFYTT!  Jen has done it again with a fabulous layout!



This month, the SFYTT Sisters are being sponsored by the fabulous Your Next Stamp!  I had the privilege of being a guest designer for Karen and YNS a few months back and I just LOVE their stamps!!


For my card today I used the ADORABLE Erin From Ireland.  I LOVE this stamp!  My husband and his family are all Irish so this stamp is perfect for St. Patrick's Day cards!  I'd love my girls to learn Irish dancing, but it seems that they have the same coordination as their mother (which means none...lol).

I stamped Erin and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then "fussy cut" her out and popped her up onto a circle panel embossed with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  All of the patterned paper is On The Bright Side Two from My Minds Eye.  This set comes with this sweet little shamrock with a ladybug, so I stamped three, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out for the three horizontal elements.


Here is a closeup of Erin.  If I were to do this card over, I'd color her crown a different color...it blends too much with her hair.  I did add some glitter to help differentiate it.


Check out what my super fab SFYTT sisters have done with this sketch today here:
