Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 with a Twist!!

Hey there friends!!  This week there is a new Twist happening over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!  No new Sketch this week, instead we've asked all of our Followers to choose their favorite Sketch and create a card with an added Twist - Paper Piecing!!  Before I continue though I want to tell you about some happy news - I have a new name...  Grandma!!  My first Grandson William was born last Friday.  What a Blessing!!  And of course I have a few pictures to share...
Needless to say, this Grandma is in love!!

This week's Challenge is Sponsored by Sami Stamps!!  So thrilled to have her as a Sponsor!!  The Winner this week will receive a $12.00 Gift Certificate to her Shop!!

This being SSW2's first Challenge with a Twist, I don't have a new Sketch to share with you but will share the Sketch I used.  Happens to be from our third Challenge...


I chose this cute Puppy with Balloons and paper pieced the balloon.  I just love this image and think it makes the perfect birthday card for any boy =)


So very glad you stopped by and I hope you will head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and check out the rest of the Design Team's cards!!

Blessings to you all!!

  11. Sally, I have to say he is beautiful. Such a proud grandma. I am so happy for you and your family. I love your card but, like others that have commented think that your grand son is certainly the spotlight of your post. Congrats!
    Hugs, Nancy

  12. Congratulations to the new addition to the family grandma, isn't William so cute you forget how tiny they are and they grow up so quickly.
    Love your card so cute but not as cute as William. Take care and have a lovely week.
