Hoppy Spring
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 43Sponsor: Inktegrity

I just love it when I create a card that comes together so easily! I have to say that it usually doesn't work that way for me. But this one just fell into place! This image is from Inktegrity and when I saw it I just loved that little bunny! When I found this trim in my stash...I thought that it would maybe give the appearance of a row of carrots. Well, if it doesn't to you...then at least it gives a little texture! Hope you enjoy it! It was fun to create!
Inktegrity is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. So be sure to hop over and see of the sweet images that Joni has designed for you. While you are there you may just want to choose an image to play along with us at SSW! And if you happen to be the winner of the week you will win a free digi prize from Inktegrity.
This is the sketch we are using this week at SSW!!!

Happy Birthday Mama Nurse
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 41
Sponsor: Digi Stamp Boutique

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thought I had better add a little green to my blog today!
This was such a fun card to create. It is a birthday card for my daughter who is a nurse and is expecting her first child. I tired to make the nurse's apron look like it was poochy by shading it darker but I didn't do a very good job so you probably wouldn't even notice. But it is the thought that counts! My daughter is an ER nurse and loves every minute of her job. I can ask her a simple question about anything medical and she can spout off for a good two hours about every little detail. Sometimes I have no clue what she is even saying ... but I am happy that she is well versed in her field!
I thought this image, Nurse Suzie, from Digi Stamp Boutique would make a perfect birthday card for my daughter. Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Sally Ann is so talented with her images. You will love every one. So take some time to check out her shop. And play along with us this week at SSW. Go ahead and get some inspiration from our DT. If you are the winner of the week, you will received $10 of digi images from the Digi Stamp Boutique. How fun is that!
Also we hope you are gearing up for our first Bunny Hop Blog Hop at SSW. It will be this weekend March 19, 20, 21. So be sure to come back on Friday to get all the details and to participate in the Bunny Hop....lots of prizes and also one Grand Prize will be offered. Digi Stamp Boutique will also be our sponsor for the Bunny Hop.

Get Well Soon
Sweet Sketch 39

Well, it's been a rather busy two weeks. But I am finally back home. Thought I had better take a few minutes to post this. It will be really short. I had a lot of fun making this card. It actually looks better than it does on the computer. But I think that is the way with all the cards.

I really liked this image when I saw it on KLM Digi Stamps. I enjoyed using my copics and practicing more of my shading.

Our sponsor, of course, is KLM Digi Stamps. Take some time to look at their images and also check out our DT Line Up to see our creations with KLM Digi Stamps. You will also want to play along this week as their prize is three free digis of your choice. Now wouldn't you love that. Check out all the details on how to play along on Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
