Birthday Balloons.

Good morning and Welcome to my post for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2.Have you ever had one of those days that you can not remember what time it is or the correct day? Well I am having a month of this, I am dropping it left and right, Not remembering what day it is telling the kids they have appointments a whole month early! I think it has something to do with Summer vacation, LOL!! I do much better on the schedule. How about you?

Lets get on to this week, before I forget!   This weeks sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps. Sweet Pea Stamps is a new sponsor for us at SSW2. Thank you for being our sponsor.                                                .

Father's Day card.

Hello and Welcome to my blog.  Today I have a card for you that looks very complicated, yet it was rather easy and I love how it turned out. It is called a Concertina card found.

I made this for my Father in Law for Fathers day, he is a big Tiger baseball fan and watches all the games on TV. He saw a card that I got from my sweet friend Emma over at Lady & the Stamp she made a similar card for my birthday back in May. You can see her beautiful card here, there is also a link to where she found it.
Since I saw the directions on Emma's blog, I thought why not give it a try for Dad. 
He loved it and thought it was really neat. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find this card as inspiration and give this a try it was fun and rather easy to make.

Hey Chickie!

Okay I have a small rant here! I am so tired of the post office, it cost a fortune to mail our cards and now the post office has not delivered a card that I made for my friend who's Birthday was on Mon. She live about 20 mins away by car,  but I guess by mail it is going to be two weeks! This same friend sent my daughter a Birthday card back in March, she put some cash in the card, I know and she knows not to do that but it was $5, just something little and a note to let her know she was thinking of her. The card never came! We think someone took the money and tossed the card.
I really enjoy making square cards, but the cost to mail them is outrageous! It is a shame. I' done....just had to vent a bit!
Lets talk about Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. This week our wonderful sponsor is A Day for Daisies.  This weeks lucky winner will receive a $12 gift certificate to use in the Day for Daisies shop.


Here is this weeks sketch. You can use the sketch the way it is or use a circle instead.


For this sketch I used the cute Chicken image called Amy Hen, I just love her apron and had to have her match my BG paper. Thanks for stopping in this week and hope to see you over at SSW2. 

One more thing I wanted to share today- This last week was prom, honors convocations, and Graduations.
So I wanted to share some photos of these. 

So proud of this Kid! He has worked so very hard the last 4 years to get those gold cords. It was such a fun week.
