Thinking of You Funday Friday Challenge

Good morning and welcome :) Thank goodness it's Friday! Yay! It's been hot and very busy here at the house this past week so not as much crafting as I would have liked to have done. We had a Green Bean weekend last weekend. Saturday we did the harvesting, capping the beans and cutting them (10 hours :) Sunday after we got the new to us Cookstove put in the house Dave and I were back at it with canning the green beans. Spent the day canning all that we cut and we ended up with 23 qts and 80 pts of green beans. So I think that were covered for the year maybe 2 years :) so no green beans to be planted next year. So that is what I have been up to this week.
Today is Funday Friday challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack and the theme is Anything Goes. Our sponsor this week is Sherri Baldy Bestie Shop
I used the sketch over at Sketch N Scrap:
This was just a blast of a sketch to work with :)
Isn't she adorable :) This was my favorite in the group of stamps right off the bat when I seen it. It just looks like your best friend talking to you :) It also reminds me my of my granddaughter right now in her style as a teenage right now :) I thought Thinking of You would be a great card for this fun stamp.
I started to color her with the red and then added the pink and blue afterwards. I added crystal stickles to some of the red to give her some bits of glitter here and there. I used my Bic markers to color her.
The pink polka dot paper came from my current counterfeit kit and when I was looking for some glittery stars I came across this chipboard sentiment in an old counterfeit kit box of embellishments that hasn't been put away yet. Found the box of stars too in the box and decided to use these instead. So added the red washi tape and the blue glitter tape to the card.
I brought in all the elements from the front of the card into the back of the card. Found this fun vellum quote for inside sentiment for the card. Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. Looking forward to seeing what you create for the challenge.
