Mouse In the House and Baby and Bunny
Sweet Sketch 64

This week I am not able to go for my daily hike around the golf course as we are having the 110th US Amateur Championship at Chambers Bay Golf Course. I will really miss my daily hike but will spend more time walking the streets and going to the gym. Here is a link to photos of our course. Wait a few seconds and it will give you a quick slide show of the course. The Course is right on the Puget Sound. The hardest park of the hike is up through the fir trees on the far right side of the course. After more than three years, I keep thinking it will get easier but it doesn't. It is just a good workout for this body! Now can you see why I savor my morning hike! It is a 3 1/2 mile trail around the course.

Well, that is probably more than you wanted to know! But I mostly wanted you to see how beautiful the Puget Sound is.

Today I have three cards to showcase. I never have time to make three cards but I had some relaxing time at Arlana's last month. I love this sketch. My favorite part is the border. I could have cut out borders all day long!

My Mistake but I had to finish it!

This card is a slight deviation from the Sweet Sketch 63. I acutally made the square for the image too small as the ribbon was suppose to lay across the bottom of the square. I was still happy with the results. The flowers are from Michael's Dollar Bin. It includes the flowers and the little jewels...packaged in Red, Yellow and Pink! Arlana found these and she was going to split them for us. So I ran to my Michaels to make sure Nancy, Arlana and I had all three packages. Nancy, now you know! You have three packages waiting for you at Arlana's.

Instead of putting jewels on the flowers in the wheelbarrow, I dotted the centers of the red flowers with Stickles.

  5. Judi, you're too funny! I love the "mistake" you made. All three cards are just as cute as can be and that mouse is just adorable!

  9. Oh Judi what a wonderful walk every morning I can see how you would miss that I guess the course must be very close to you house how wonderful!!! I wish I was there to walk with you. I adore all your cards this week I love how you mixed the colours of your roses to match you papers. I made a mistake on my first card as well I felt that I had made the image too small. It's there for another card for someone else. I love that baby image I must get that one it's really cute I like it more now that I've seen it made up.
    Take care and have a great weekend.

  10. Hello Judi, It was so fun watching you make these cards. To bad your not here to do it again with this months. Your border punch turned out so perfect. I couldnt beliveve how perfectly you got it to match. I do love the add rhinestones to you flower cart. Hope you are have a sweet day!!! Love ya Thanks for all you do.

  11. Wow!!! You certainly were busy. Fantastic cards! That's rotten about your golf course, I'm a bit of a golfer too, was practically brought up on it. Although our course is actually a links and more than a few golf balls have hit the Irish Sea, this is my course,
    Nowhere near as nice as yours. Looking forward to the Ryder Cup this year, Harrington just got in on a wild card so the Irish are happy. :-D
