Chemical Boy

    Hello! Glad you could stop by. I have a cute boy card  for you today from one of my favorite Stamp company' s- Tiddly Inks. August is my Son's  birthday month and this image is just perfect for him. I used the cute image called Genius.  It also comes with a cute little mouse image, but I did not have room for it on my card today. 
    Here is a close up of this little Genius. 
    He reminded me of Nic my oldest. He is such a geek, loves chemistry, science and computer gaming with his friends. My Daughter who is also a science geek, she watches science videos on her computer for fun. She told me that you could spell Nicolas name with the periodic chart. I told her lets remember that for next year when he graduates HS.
    I also decided to use the sketch for this weeks sketch over at SSW2 , because it is just perfect to highlight this darling image.
   My papers are a few years old from Jellibean from their Atomic Soup line. Thanks for stopping in today and have a super weekend. 
Challenges:
Tiddly Inks- Design Team call and Lets hear it for the boys.

Purple Cone flowers.

Hi and Welcome to my post for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2. This week our wonderful sponsor is Patties Creations. One lucky winner will receive two free images from Patti's store. Be sure to check out her Etsy shop you can find it here.  
I used the cute image called Black eyed Susans.
Here is where I got my inspiration from.
This is in my garden, I love these flowers. I transplanted these beauties when we moved into the house about 12 years ago and I have never had to do a thing to them. They bloom every year and in the fall they attract beautiful finches, because they like to eat the seeds.

Here is this weeks sketch and did I forget to mention, the twist because this is the last sketch for he month, is show us your dots! 
Thanks for stopping by this week. Hope to see your dots over at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2.

One cool cat.

Ahhhhh..... Back from a wonderful  vacation in NYC, we did all the great touristy things that one does in NYC, From the Empire state building to a play on Broadway and shopping at Macy's. We did all of that and so much more. Not our typical summer vacation because it was not very relaxing, yet it was fun and exciting. 
This Lady just had a face lift.
