Happy Friday!  So as I mentioned earlier, I spent the week being on call for jury duty having to call in every night (and even once mid-day) to see if I would have to report.  Well yesterday I did have to report to the courthouse at 8:30 am.  Thankfully I had the closest courthouse to us – which is unusual – so I was thankful about that!  I did my one day and I am now done for at least a year.  It was a close call, for awhile there yesterday afternoon I really thought I might get seated on a jury for a spousal abuse case.  It looked like they might go through everyone in the room before they agreed to keep the 14 needed.  Finally at 4:00 they had their panel and my number had not been called into the jury box.  It was excruciating sitting through the whole process…especially some of the stuff people say in trying to get kicked off the jury…oh my!


PHEW!  Now onto Friday and the FUN STUFF!!!!

Fridays are Sketch Challenge days at the Taylored Expressions Blog and we’d love to have you play along!  Every so often Taylor offers a fun added BONUS to playing the weekly TESC… PRIZES!  And today is one of those days as Taylor is offering BONUS PRIZES for TESC106.  You’ll have through April 2nd to play along and enter your card for a chance to be named a Top Crop and win your choice of FREE STAMP SET from the Taylored Expressions Store.  Winners will be announced on April 5th.  You do not have to use TE stamps to enter. Get all the details to play on Taylor’s blog

tesc106-jami-chick-time-best-copy-custom.jpgFor my card today I used TE Favorite Peeps.  When I saw the 3 little mini panels at the bottom I immediately thought of the image of 3 chicks in the Favorite Peeps set.  In order to punch them out with the SU label punch I actually stamped them separately, one at a time and then punched them.  It’s easy to just ink part of the stamp with a Memento Dew Drop.  Although I usually use a full sized Memento pad it’s great to also have the dew drop size for omitting part of an image.

Images were colored with Copic markers and I sponged sky with a cloud template and Baja Breeze ink.  Most of the eggs were covered with Smooch Illuminate and the bow was painted with Smooch Sassy Pink.  The grass is an image in the stamp set.  The little words at the bottom are from SU Everyday Flexible Phrases.  I added a Doodlebug brad, a butterfly bellie and tons of stickles in yellow and fruit punch. 


Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up this week:
