Hello and Happy Wednesday to you. 
We are half way to the weekend! Hang in there you can do it. 
Today at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays I am taking you camping with Bug a Boo and Stella.
Jodie Mackrell from Bug a Boo is our fabulous sponsor this week. You should stop into Bug a Boo and check out all the images that Jodie has for you and the best part is she always has something new once a week.
This image just cracks me up...I am not a big camper and yes it is about the bugs! Speaking about bugs I have made little mosquitoes at the bottom with the buttons and tulle. Here is a close up of them.
Can you hear them buzzing come in for the bite?
 Here is Arlana's great sketch this week.
I hope you find time to join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. The lucky winner this week gets to pick 7 digi stamps worth $21 from Bug a Boo. I will be looking for you!

Nice Surprise in the mail

Hello Blogers,
I have been so busy this weekend with soccer tryouts for my daughter and then a Marching band meeting on Monday night. I have not had time to check my google reader....well when I came home today I had a very nice surprise in my mail box. It was a envelope from FlourishesI happen to win the prize of all the new releases for this month.  I just had to find time today and make a quick tag with two of the new sets that I got. 
The new sets are Letters in Blossom and Summer Blossoms. Two very beautiful sets. I made a quick book mark for my Daughter, she plans on doing a bunch of reading this Summer for her school work. This was made with all scraps that were on my work station, I think I could make about 6 cards with the scraps that are on my desk...LOL!
Thanks for stopping by.

Good Morning to you. Today's card is for my daughters best friend,  she just had her 13th birthday.  I used the sketch from MFT and also used the image from MFT- I've got UR back. Paper pieced the image and used copics for coloring. Mia's friend loves the bright neon colors and this is as close as I could get to them. Thanks for stopping by see you later.

The challenge over at There she goes is circles- #160. I wanted to make a card just because. So this is what I came up with. 
I bought this set-The Fairy Best about a year ago and this is my first time using it. I fell in love the the little mushroom houses. I have so many stamp sets that I do not use...It is a shame or is it a sickness. Any way I do love my stamps! Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend. 


Hello and It is the middle of the week!
This is the last week of school for my kids and my son is working hard on his finals. He has done great all year ( his first year of High school).  I am so proud of both of my kids this has been such a busy year for them both and they are keeping up with school and activities. They deserve a few months off of school.

Wednesday also mean it is time for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays and we have a new sketch from Arlana. We also have another great sponsor for this weeks challenge - Digi Stamp Characters the owner and illustrator is Heather Ellis.
