This month's hostess was Patti.  She chose this charming Heather Ellis image.  Her challenge was to put something "Spring-y" in the tree.  I thought about butterflies, but that is one small tree!  There was no way I was going to be able to cut a butterfly THAT small!!  Soo, I settled for gems to represent buds.

I decided to make Patti's card a "I miss you" card.  She has some awfully cute grandkiddos in Arizona and she can probably needs a few cards to remind them how much grandma loves them.

Fun challenge Patti!

SSW 2: Just Some Lines

Happy Easter (OK, three days after, anyway).  I hope you had a nice holiday.  Ours was fantastic. We just had my MIL over.  The kids enjoyed hunting for the eggs.  We had a panicky few minutes when we couldn't find the last three eggs.  Hubby was giving me the "so where DID you hide them?" look over the kids' heads and I was completely flummoxed.

Heck, I can barely remember where I put them 10 seconds after they leave my hands!  It wasn't until we had the kids re-count the eggs that we determined that all eggs had been found.

I am so glad that you could come join us for another sketch challenge over at  Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This week Sally has given us another fantastic sketch to work with; there is quite a bit to it.  I rotated the sketch this week.

Our sponsor is a new one,  Just Some Lines.  The shops stocks whimsical art work created by its owner Jehanne, who creates and adds new artwork regularly into her shops when not doing school runs, illustrating children books or running after sheep.

We hope you find time to play.

Eat Cake Graphics

I'm back with another cutie from Eat Cake Graphics.  This is Feathers.  Is he not the cutest panicked bird that you have EVER seen? 

This week Delicious Doodles is challenging us to use pink for breast cancer awareness.  Since it's a cause that has touched my life I wanted to participate.

I'm using the sketch over at Just Add Ink.  If you squint and tilt your head to the left, I'm sure that you'll agree with me that I NAILED this sketch!

Creative Knockouts

Today Doodle Pantry sponsors Creative Knockouts and I really wanted to participate.  Their challenge is "Furry Friends."  I figured that this little guy certainly qualifies as furry and since he's obviously sewn, counts as a friend (Can't say that I'd want a REAL bear as a friend).

I used the sketch from over at Sketchy Colors.  It was pretty fun.
I'm also participating in the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays: Embossing
The Squirrel and the Fox: All Creatures Great and Small

SSW2-DigiStamp Boutique

Oh what wacky weather Colorado has.  Started the week with snow and now we're headed to the 60s.  Yay, just in time for our annual Easter Egg hunt and picnic. Though I'm gonna have to admit that this IS one of the few years that we've been able to do both OUTSIDE!

Once again, it's time for a sketch challenge from the folks over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

This week we are once again sponsored by Sally-Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique.

 I'm using her For You Quacky. I saw the wonderful things my teamies did with this image last month and HAD to have him.   I used a phrase from my other DT, Doodle Pantry.  The phrase was just too perfect.  I had to pair them up!

The sketch this week is brand new this week and our prize this week is six digital images from Sally-Ann's shop.  I hope that you have a chance to head on over to the blog this week, and join in the fun.

Stick it Down Tuesday

Happy Friday.

I for one am downright EXCITED for the coming weekend.  A time to sleeeeeep!   The rotten hubby scheduled a tune-up for his car at 8:00 tomorrow morning.  Really?  What part of sleep-in does he not get?!!

Oh well.  I'm back to share another card made with some images from the April Release over at Doodle Pantry.  Cute stuff huh?  Here's the crazy thing .... this image is FREE right now.  Yep, you heard me right.  You have until the 24th to find something amazing over on the blog (and really, how hard is that?) and this set can be yours for FREE!

I used the sketch from over on the Stick it Down Tuesday website.  I loved it's clean lines.

SSW2: Fresh Brewed Designs

Welcome to Wednesday, friends.

I'm sick this week ... there is no pep in my step.  I'm hoping that if I pour enough tea into me I will start to feel better.  Lady Grey, Chai and Chamomile need to pick up the pace because I am still lacking perk.  Ugh.

We're revisiting favorite sketches over at SSW2.  This one is a throwback to our Sweet Sketch Wednesday days, August of 2013 to be exact.  If you want to see what I did then, go check it out.  Apparently I REALLY like cord because unknowingly, I did it again!

Our sponsor is Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs.  She's offering 3 free digis to the winner of our challenge.

Here's a bit more about Heather:

Hello, I am Heather Dennis, the owner and artist at Fresh Brewed Designs.
