Sweet Sketch Wednesday - let's Make it Crafty!!

Make it CraftyHey there friends!!  Time for a new Sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!  Our Sponsor this week is Make it Crafty - Click on their Badge to check out all the wonderful images they have to offer.  This week's Winner will be awarded a $15 Gift Certificate!!  How cool is that!?!?

My sister and I (mostly my sister... ;-) have been getting our Beach House ready for the Summer months.  We will have our Annual Father's Day celebration with lots of family and friends in just a few weeks.  I love to see the kids playing on the beach - here are a couple of pics from last year's Father's Day celebration, Willow and Mahalia building their sand castle and some of the family gathered on the Dock.  I love family traditions!!

On to our Sketch:

This week, thoughts of Summer inspired my choice in image selection and I went with this cute Sand Castle image.  I had a few sheets of paper left from an Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad that has a Beach Theme.  The image is colored with my Copics and the button and ribbon are from my stash.

Happy Crafting my friends - I hope you will play along with us!!

Blessings to you!!


  1. How fun Sally, I hope you have a wonderful time at the beach house with your family. I wish we had a tradition like that. Not that we don't have some fun ones...but, to go to the beach would be fun. Your card is soo cute. I love the darling sand castle. Have a fabulous week.
    Hugs, Nancy
