SFYTT-You Make Good Times Great!

How about a fun sketch to get your weekend going? This week's SFYTT has TONS of potential! I had a couple ideas in mind for this one, so I'll have to make another card tomorrow!

For my card today, I broke one of the NEW and FABULOUS Verve sets, Great Friend! Verve recently released 8 new sets, you can see them all HERE! Buy the bundle and save some money:)
Okay, I really wanted to use this stamp set today and this was the only way I could make it work. Instead of cutting a bunch of circles like the sketch calls for, I just stamped a bunch of flowers randomly where the circles SHOULD be:) Don't you LOVE this stamp set? I really love stamping the solid images and then stamping the outline images over it, it looks like it could a patterned paper! The colors I used are Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Chocolate. The beautiful lace is from the 100 Yen store, I love that I can get 3 feet of this gorgeous lace for only 100 Yen (1 dollar!)

I have a cute story about this card. I couldn't decide if I wanted that Baja Breeze mat so I took the card in to Billy and asked him which way he preferred. Just the chocolate mat or add the Baja mat? He looked at it and concentrated real hard, says "Is this just a card for a friend? No special occasion?" I say "Yep!" and he tells me "I think you should add the Baja mat. If it was for a formal occasion I would suggest just the chocolate and white but since it's not formal, you should add the Baja!" Hahaha, how cute is that? I love that guy, he has a great eye for card fashion, lol!

Are you ready to see more SFYTT eye-candy? Cruise through the blogs of my SFYTT team-mates and enjoy the beauty!

This is beautiful. I was going to comment on how lovely your dsp was and then I read that you stamped it yourself. Gorgeous!

Very nice! I like how you used the flowers to create the "circle trail" in the sketch.

lol, that was so cute...I've got my dh talking like that too :) and I sometimes will go and ask him to pick between 2 things :) LOVE the colours and how you overlapped the flower images...another cool way to use this set...it's one of my favs from the release :) (oh!! and while I was away at the teaching conference, I was watching Seinfeld in the hotel room one night and the "Summer of George" was on...thought of you :D )

This is gorgeous Amber! I love how you did the flowers and the flower outlines! The sentiment is awesome and the pearls and lace are really pretty!

Oh my goodness, Amber - love this! I was thinking along similar lines with the same stamp set for this sketch, but went with another set instead. Mine wouldn't have turned out anywhere near this pretty!! Great job!

Funny story about Billy :) Just about all Lee ever says is "looks good honey!" I have to pull a few teeth before he'll give me more than that.

So pretty! What a great idea to stamp the flowers where the circles are on the sketch to make background paper. Beautiful colour combo and the pearls are so pretty in the flower centers.
