Sending Love ~

Saturday, March 30, 2013

This card looks like a picnic to me!  Well it's going to be 80ish here, so I think we'll go for a walk in the park this afternoon and hang out there for awhile with the puppy.  I used the Retro Sketch #57 and this is also for the Hambo Hoedown #108 Challenge to incorporate weaving so I decided to use this cute little woven basket full of hearts.  Happy Saturday!

I was so happy and of course agreed, and so to any of you who have come here to visit me for the first time through OWH I welcome you to my humble little blog!

I do hope this little guy will give you some inspiration to join in the challenge there, and my heart just grew a little bit bigger because of it ~ Thank you so very much!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 197-67 ~

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday 197-67!  The generous sponsor of this week's Sketch Challenge is A Day for Daisies, and the Grand Prize Winner will receive $12 Gift Certificate to the ADFD Shop! 

There are so many images to choose from, but when I saw this image and the name Girl Power it jumped right off the page to me, and how important it is to teach the young ladies in our lives that they too can be whatever they dream to be.  I just know that there is someone in each and every one of our lives who if we took the time to create a card like this, that the message it would teach would be more rewarding that we could ever imagine.

Your Special Day ~

Sunday, March 3, 2013

I just love the look on this adorable bear's face!  Today's card is for the Hambo Hoedown Challenge 104 using Bear Cupcake.  All of these papers are from the DCWV's Green Stack and they are all cardstock weight and textured so I used one of the papers for the base as well, like I've done before.  It's a whole lot of patterns going on, but fun at the same time I think.  The layout is for the Sketch Saturday Challenge 248.
