This week we are featuring Dearie Dolls.  If you haven't visited Mary Ellen's Blog, you really need to!!!  All (and I did say ALL) of her images are free downloads - WoW!!  So many adorable images, you are sure to find something that you didn't even know you were looking for!!

This week we are bringing back a "Blast from the Past" Sketch 217 along with a Tic Tac Toe Twist:



I went with the diagonal - Button(s) - Design Paper - Ribbon

I've created my card for my dear friend Juanita's granddaughter's 6th Birthday.  This little girl Loves Cats and Mary Ellen had the perfect image - Must Love Cats!!

...she also LOVES pink!!

I do hope you will play along with us!  Excited to see how you play Tic Tac Toe!!

Blessings to you!!

Hi there friends!!  I hope you all had a Blessed Easter!!  He is risen!!!  Risen indeed!!  I had a wonderful Easter.  Awesome LifeSong service followed by a family dinner at my niece's house.  Here is a picture of my Sweet William with his first Easter basket.  I was so excited to give him his basket with his bunny!!  I've been knitting for several months now and had so much fun knitting this cute bunny - I just had to make him as his name in the book was Harold...  Cute!!  For those of you who may not know, Harold is William's middle name, named after my Dad.
We really did have a wonderful day, start to finish!!

Now, on to share the latest Sketch Challenge happening over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!

We have a new Sponsor Just Some Lines.  They have some super adorable images.  I chose to use this adorable Bird House - so much fun to work with!!  Check out their shop by clicking HERE!

I hope you will head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and check out the rest of the Design Team's creations and then perhaps play along!!

I just love to see everyone's take on the Sketch!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!

Happy Wednesday my friends!!  What a wonderful weekend I just had!!  We celebrated my daughter's pregnancy with a Baby Shower on Saturday - Sharing a few pics =)  William will have a cousin in just 2 months =)  Two sweet boys to grow up together - Best Buddies!!  Are any of you Quilters?  I always feel like making a card (especially when following a Sketch) is a lot like making a Quilt.  My first love was quilting, then when I found Card Making, I found it is a lot like creating a Quilt, just in less time!!    Then, Sunday, at church I had the opportunity to serve in the Nursery...  That meant time with William and Jakob, what a Blessed Sunday - AND - I will be listening to the Sermon by Podcast at - I'd love to have you check out the web site...  LifeSong just started holding our Sunday Worship service in Hanover MA.  God is SO GOOD!!

On to my Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 post...  This week our Sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique - Sally-Ann Hancock is such a faithful Sponsor!!  The whole Design Team just adores her images.  Make sure you check out all the creations...  we are all thinking Spring and Easter by our image choices!! 

Here is the Sketch for this week...

And, here is my card (I've got baby on the brain =)

I hope you are having a wonderful week and wish you all a very Blessed Easter!!
