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!
