Perk Up!

Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog     QC#13: 2011 Lyn's Recipe Theme Box
The Color Dare     CD#106-Real Peachy Pears-Real Red, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz

I'm back with an edit--in doing the sketch at Crafty Mess I discovered I failed to click on an important link and did the wrong sketch. It's still going to be a fun place to play and I'll start in July maybe I'll be able to click on the correct links.
I just joined the Crafty Mess Community yesterday for the ATC Swap group they have and in looking around I found they also have a monthly sketch challenge, so, of course, I joined that group too.  I just so happens that the sketch was perfect for the pieces I picked from Lyn's Recipe Theme Box, coffee and cream, 3 backing papers, stamped image, embossing (I heat embossed the images in the main circle), 4 brads. 
Lyn I know you said coffee and cream, but I had to add in the colored polka dots to get in my real red, peach parfait, and pear pizzazz, to add just that little bit of quirkiness.
A couple of ladies welcomed me and friended me not to long after I joined at Crafty Mess so I already think that's going to be a fun community to be a part of . 
Check out all 3 of the places to play, you'll find you can have some fun.

Supplies: 5 1/2" square card blank, Papers: SU-Chocolate Chip, Naturals Vanilla, My Mind's Eye, DCWV,  Stamps: SU-Mourning Cup, Ink: SU-Early Expresso, Ranger distress ink-tea dye, VersaMark, SU clear embossing powder, SU-Riding Hood Red marker, The Paper Studio Spare Parts-tiny heart brads, Fiskars corner rounder punch and circle shape cutter template, ribbon-Offray, SU dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
