Sweet Sketch Wednesday #65 - Bugaboo

Wow! September already! I am so glad that the first couple of weeks of school are over. Things started okay, but I do have a student that is really testing my patience. He's new to our school this year and is having a really hard time adjusting. He spend almost his whole year on a computer last year and now he has to work hard...we'll see how things go...
Things are pretty crazy this week: celebrating my 30th birthday (Yikes!) and going camping this should be fun. Also have to say that my husband and I are expecting our 2nd child. Still in my first trimester, but feeling pretty good. Needless to say, with work and all that we have this week, I am going to be really busy!
Anyway, enough babbling...we have a great sponsor this week: Bugaboo Stamps. Jodie has a lot of fun images and she is offering a super prize to our winner. She will give 7 digi stamps to our winner, which is a value of $21! Wow!

So, here is our fabulous sketch to follow that Arlana has put together for us. You should hop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see what the other DT members have created and play along!

Well, here's my card. I hope that you like it.

This image is called Moon Babies - Night Night. I used my Copics (Y13, Y11, RV11, C3, C1, E00, B32, and B14) to color the image. I just fell to pieces when I saw it. The cardstock is from both The Paper Company - Seaside pack and DCWV The Cardstock Stack. The DP's come from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. The ribbon is from Target's $1 bin and the brads I found at Michael's. I bought the button in a pack from Jo-Ann's. Hope you all have a great week!

  5. Oh Erika, Happy Birthday, your just so young I wish I was 30 again. And Congratuations on the new baby when are you due??? I love your card this week super cute image love the colours and the embellishments. Don't let this new kid give you a hard time he's trying you to see if you give in DON'T!!! let him know who boss and be strict on him. Boys need routine and authority and to know who's boss and they thrive on it, if he sees that you have a weak spot he'll whined you up. Keep your chin up and enjoy your weekend away.
