SSW 186: Bugaboo

Happy day AFTER Christmas!  

I hope today finds you relaxing and enjoying the calm of it not being a major holiday!  I know that for me, the pressure of creating the "perfect" holiday experience for my family can be exhausting.  Curse you Martha Stewart!! 

This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we are hosted by  Jodi from Bugaboo.  She's offering up SEVEN digi images for the winning card this week.  

Arlana's sketch is so darn cute that it was really easy to whip something up.  So join in the fun and upload your card to the Sweet Sketch blog.  You could find that you are this week's big winner.

SSW 185-141: DigiStamp Boutique

Yay, the internet is a good thing.

We have been without it for nearly a week.  We live in a more remote and wooded part of town now so we had to upgrade.  It's taken many days and MANY calls to the repair line of our ISP company.   We currently have service but the modem is balanced on top of a chair.  It's the only way it can get reception because it's wireless.  I suspect that the company may YET have to come back to the house again, but at least it works!

This is my card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week we are sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique.  I used "Alf" who is just so darn cute that he makes me smile every time.  I suspect that I will eventually have to get every one of them.

The prize this week for a winning entry is six digis from Sally-Ann's shop.  So what are you waiting for ... get crafting!

SSW 184: Better Late Than Never

OK, um ... so it's Friday and I am just NOW posting my Sweet Sketch WEDNESDAY card.  The long and short of it is I moved.  Not far from my old house, about 15 miles, but wow, what a difference those 15 miles make!

I did TRY to be organized in my packing.  My first 100 boxes were labeled with it's content's itemized on the side of each box.  But then, on the day of the move, we STILL had items unpacked.  I cut my leg on some broken glass and couldn't get it to stop bleeding and then (as if things couldn't get any worse) the youngest got the stomach flu.  Organization went out the window and we just made it work.  All the cards that I had made ahead of time for SSW went into a box and were temporarily lost. Ugh.

Found at last, I can finally share my card with you.  Arlana's sketch was really fun to work with and this week we are sponsored by the always amazing A Day For Daisies.  I used "Buddy" which I absolutely adore the sweetness of this image.

So come-on, join in.  You could win $12 to spend in the A Day For Daisies store with your entry.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 183: Meljen's Designs

Happy Wednesday.  It's time for another challenge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week we have a fantastic sketch to work with and our sponsor is Meljen's Designs

I have to apologize for the poor quality of my picture this week.  Half of my house is packed up for our move (the movers come in 2 days to finish packing up my house) and I'm pretty sure that I packed my camera ... in one of the billion boxes that now litter my new house.  This is my phone"s camera ... not good.

I liked this week's sketch so much that I actually created two cards with it.  I'm starting to panic a little.  I have 20 days from today to unpack my house, decorate, send out cards and get a little "Ho Ho Ho" in my life.  I don't have nearly enough cards made to send out.  Yikes.

So join in our sketch fun!  Upload your card to Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  You could win 4 non-colored digi-images of your choice this week!
