Welcome Wednesday!!

It's Wednesday once again!!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I so enjoyed my family's Father's Day gathering and thought I'd share a few pictures...  I think there were 57 of us this year.  The "oldest" being my Aunt Grace (I'll keep her age a secret ;-) and the youngest my Great Niece Micaela Grace, just 4 weeks old.  Sweet picture of the two of them...  Lots of time was spent at the Beach Front -I love this picture on the Beach Wall.  Father's Day is a time when many reconnect and share what is going on in their lives, and a time for siblings to gather as distance keeps them apart more than they would like.    .

A tradition for more than 30 years is a picture on the porch steps of the Next Generation of "Smiths".  This pic is of my parents Great Grandchildren - oh how they would enjoy them...       
I'm still waiting for my Grandchildren to come along and join in this Father's Day tradition!!
On with this week's Sketch...

We have a wonderful Sponsor this week who is so very faithful and generous...  Sally Ann of Digi Stamp Boutique.  I chose this wonderful image (which comes with the perfect sentiment) "Pretty Church".

I used some long retired Close to My Heart papers from my stash, colored the image with my Copics and added some lace and a flower from my stash.

I hope you will check out the rest of the Design Team cards and play along with us - I LOVE to see your creations AND the winner will get to choose 6 free digital images!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by...
Blessings to you!!


  1. Absolutely gorgeous card Sally. Perfect for that special day.

    Great photos. Seems like it was a very busy Father's Day for you - and I thought I felt sorry for my Pops when six of us turned up at once with cards and presents, but 57? Wow!

    Hope you have a great week.


  2. Beautiful card, Sally! I love your family pictures, so full of life!

  3. Hi Sally, your card is absolutely gorgeous. It makes such a perfect wedding card. Love It!! How fun to have your family together. I have really enjoyed seeing all the pictures on facebook. Family is one of the most important things we have. Wishing you a fabulous week.
    Hugs, Nancy

  4. Hi Sally I just love your Wedding card, such pretty colours and design papers. Love your family pictures on Father's Day. Father's Day in New Zealand is the first Sunday in September. Isn't it funny with both celebrate Mother's Day on the same day. I love family get together's like yours which we always did when mum and dad were alive. But our family is so scattered now three of my sisters and their families all live in Australia and it's myself and my brother's here in New Zealand. It's really not the same without my sisters. Take care and thanks so much for sharing those lovely photo's and your Aunt Grace doesn't look that old at all a very young chick.

  5. Your card is soo sweet this week Sally and I thoroughly enjoyed all those pictures. What a GREAT event to have. Thanks for sharing!

  6. What fabulous family pictures Sally! And what a gorgeous card too. Love your image and those wonderful papers. A perfect wedding card.


  7. What a fun Fathers day get together. I have always wished for a large family, but we are so few! Your card is such a sweet wedding card, what a great image and love your flower. Have a great weekend.

  8. What amazing family pictures, and what a blessing to have you all gathered together like that! Your card is just adorable, the lace and flower, and the green door that matches the cardstock all work together so perfectly.
