TSB sponsoring SSW...

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you!
I am happy to tell you I am off of work, and as my husband says retired! I will not be going back in the fall like I would normal do. The kids are just getting busier and are going to need lots of carpooling in the fall, So unless I find a job that is two days a week, I am retired. YEA!!!! Being retired means I am going to have more time to make cards, double YEA!!!

Today, The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the sketch challenge  with the sweet girls over at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. I just love using SSW sketches, and one lucky winner could get their hands on some great TSB images. 
Here is the great sketch by Arlana, the sketches always make your cards look fantastic! Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy your day.
Papers: SU, real red, and Bahama breeze, DP-Crate Paper,Emma's Shoppe creation. 
Image: Audrey fishing-TSB, words by SU-Wonderful, Favorites.
Extras: embossing folders, button, flower punch, die-namics, ribbon

Hi Heidi, lucky you to be able to retire. I will be working forever. Your card this week is adorable. It is such a cute image. Reminds me of my dad. He loves fishing. This would be the perfect Father's Day card for him. Love your red and teal color scheme. Your flowere is darling too. Thanks for joining us.

Hi Heide, Congratulations on your early retirement enjoy the break and the crafting. If my DH was reading this he would say that I've been retired for the last 12 years before I gave birth to my eldest ha ha ha.
I do love your card, very cute boys card, masculine cards aren't easy to make but yours is perfect wonderful embellishments and great colours. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
