Sweet Sketch Wednesday #108

Wow! Things got really hectic this last week. We celebrated our daughter's third birthday and she had a blast. We got a castle bounce house and had the pool set up for her and her guests. They sure had a lot of fun, but boy! Was mom tired!!! All I can say though, is that it was well worth it to see the look on her face when that bounce house was set up and ready to go!

Here is my card that I am submitting to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. What a fun sketch! I had fun with this one as it reminded me of all the good times I had at summer baseball games with my dad. We always had a lot of fun!

Here is what I used:
Bugaboo Stamps Image: AKVtoobaseballtrio
Copics: 0, E37, Y15, R29, B29, E33, G07, YR04, and E00
Papers: DCWV Summer Dream Stack and The Shimmer Stack
Embellishment: Carolee McMullin scrapbook paper bought at Jo-Ann's
Ribbon: Michael's
Ticket for Sentiment: Cricut Cartridge Mickey Font

I hope that you like my card!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #106

Another week has passed and we are trying diligently to get things underway for our daughter's third birthday party. This week will definitely be crazy as we have things to get done nearly everyday. Oh well...the things we do for our children!

This is my card for this week that I am submitting to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. They are already on sketch 106!

I used a freebie image from Bugaboo Stamps called CRABCATcoolcat. I thought that he was a pretty cool cat and thought that it fit with Father's Day somewhat. I love their images over at Bugaboo!

Copics: RV11, G28, 100, 0, Y15, E37, E33, B32, B39, and B29.

Papers: DCWV The Card Stock Stack and DCWV The Stack 6

Ribbon: Jo-Ann's

Buttons: The Paper Studio Affinity (Michael's)

I really hope that you like my card and I would love to read your comments!

This is a card that I made a while back for a birthday party we attended.

This is also a Bugaboo Stamps image called sceneitbearbday.

Copics: B29, Y13, R29, RV11, C3, E33, YR24, E09, E37, E000, R02, B32, B06, C1, G07, RV29, V09, Y15, G21, and E29.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #105-44

Hello everyone! I am glad to be back again this week. I am now officially finished with the school year. It has been a long haul and I am so glad to have a break. It seems so surreal that I don't have to get up at 5 in the morning tomorrow if I don't want to...that is if my new little one will let me sleep! :-)

Here is my card that I am entering in Sweet Sketch Wednesday's challenge. I hope that you like it!

I used a freebie image from Bugaboo Stamps called SCENEITladybugs.
Copics: G28, G17, G07, YG03, Y11, R29, 100, W3, RV11, BV11, V09, Y15, B32, and B14.
DCWV Papers: Card Stock Stack, Flower Shower Spring Stack
The Paper Studio - Affinity Gemstones (Hobby Lobby)
Ribbon: Michael's
Cricut Cartridge: Paper Doll Dress Up

Well, I have to share this picture of my little guy with you. He was just incredibly happy today and I had to capture it with my camera. He brings so much joy to my life as well as my daughter.

This is one of three cards that I made exactly alike. I modified the sketch provided. These cards were made for three teachers that I work with. We work very closely together with the first and second graders. Since it was the end of the year, I wanted to give them a card to thank them for all of their help.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #104

Hello All! I can't believe that I have made an appearance two weeks in a row! Hopefully I am back to those things that I enjoy and that the dust will settle with all the busy things of life. School is almost out. We only have four more days! I can't believe that we are finally there. This has definitely been a tough year. A lot of changes at my school, having a baby, and then losing a student. What an emotional year! I am so grateful, though, for the chance to have taught her. She was in my class when I taught 1st grade and then for 2nd grade. She was a sweetie!

There has also been a lot of births, or soon to be births - which is such a blessing to many families. That is why I decided to create this card:

This is a freebie image from Bugaboo and I just fell in love with it right away. It's called AKV BB Stork.

This is what I used:

Copics: B14, YG03, Y15, RV11, E00, G28, B29, W5, and W3

Papers: DCWV Card Stock Stack

DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy

DCWV Flower Shower Spring Pack

Hand and Foot Brads: Recollections from Michael's

I also made this card...I thought that he was too cute to pass up on!

He was also a freebie a while back from Bugaboo. He's called BeachMsand. Here is what I used:

Copics: RV11, E33, E09, YR24, E37, and G21

Papers: DCWV Card Stock Stack

DCWV The Stack 6

Buttons: Affinity - The Paper Studio bought at Hobby Lobby

I am entering these cards on Sweet Sketch Wednesday. They always have such wonderful sketches and ideas. You should go check them out!!! I hope that you enjoyed my cards and I would love to read your comments!
