Welcome Baby
Sweet Sketch 143
Sponsor:  Doodle Pantry

I just have to tell you that I had so much fun using this image from Doodle Pantry!  It is my first precolored image that I have used.  I have to say that this card was actually whipped together in just minutes! 

This image is called "Noah's Ark." 
It comes with a precolored image without the rainbow and
 a precolored image with a rainbow.
It also comes uncolored.
Plus it comes with three word sentiments: 

"All Creatures great and small know the Lord is Lord of all." 
"God's promises are forever." 
 "Two by Two."
This entire package is just $4!  What a bargain!

We are so thrilled to have Doodle Pantry as our sponsor at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Please take some time and browse their shop. 
 Their images are amazing!  And if you haven't used digis before this is the perfect time to choose one that is already precolored and then you can also have fun coloring it up any way you would like.

I decided to make a second card with the rainbow!

Just wanted to wish all of you a Happy Valentine's even though it is a day late.  My sister, Nancy, sent me a tutorial for this Valentine Box about two weeks ago.  I had just purchased the Classic Heart Nesti the day before and was going to purchase the Scalloped Heart Nesti that day but Joann's was out of it.  So finally I ordered it online.  It arrived yesterday afternoon.  So I rummaged through my papers and came up with this.

The paper I used for the walls was very stiff cardstock.  I would recomment using something a little lighter.  Regular cardstock would be fine.  It turned out fine but if I used the same paper again I would use a stronger tape.  I ended up adding glue dots to hold this project in place which worked well.

Here is the link for this tuturial! 

Just want to let you know that we went back to our old rules at
Hope you will play along.
