SFF and VC Rocks Challenge with Storybook Friends

Hello, Friends!

Happy Friday to you!  It's been a long week here in sunny Arizona.  You know it's summer in Arizona when the weather forecaster says one day is going to be cooler- only 103 for the high temperature that day! 

I created this week's Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch.  If you've been following my blog for very long, you know I like simple and sweet.  I spruced it up a little bit for the actual card I created though. 

Our VC Rocks challenge this week is to use something from nature to show what we love about summer.  This little dog reminds me so much of Frankfurter when he was a puppy, even though it's not a wiener dog.  When we lived in Illinois and spring and summer were finally here, Frank would run just like this when he saw we were at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  He would run halfway up the driveway and then stop and look at me to make sure he was going the right direction.  I'd say, "You're right, Frankfurter.  That's Grandma and Grandpa's house."  Then, he'd gallop the rest of the way and wait for them to answer the door or for me to open it.  He may be turning 11 next week, but he still runs like this when Grandma and Grandpa come to visit. 

I know it's not popsicles or butterflies, but this little guy reminds me of summer.  I purposely put the puppy outside of the white circle so it would look like he was running right through it into the pretty flowers. 

Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:

Storybook Friends Stamp Set
Basic Black Classic Ink
Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Lucky Limeade Card Stock
Floral District Designer Series Paper
Circle and 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punches
Stampin' Dimensionals

Now check out Deb Currier's blog at to see the card she created.  Then, make your own and share it with us at
