TCP Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday!
This is my card for The Cat's Pajama's Tuesday Challenge this week.
It was a bit challenging. I was so excited how my card was coming together and then I realized I had left out a layer, so I added it, and then didn't like it. So....I changed this card about five times. LOL!
I am happy with the final result.

I did lots of machine stitching. The miss u stamp is from the notched tag die-namic set from MFT.
I paper pieced the bunny and colored with my copics. The oval is vellum with swirls.

Wishing You a Fabulous 4th!

Happy Monday!
This is my card for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week.
I used a Pure Innocence, My Little Firecracker. She's adorable!
This was my first time inking her up.

I cut out my stacking stars die-namic with navy blue cs and layered them on the same color cs to give it an embossed look. I was really happy with how it turned out.

I have been crazy this week. I'm getting ready for our annual family garage sale. I've been cleaning out every drawer, closet, tote, cupboard and the entire basement (which I am still working on). You can't even get into the dining room and I am still sorting. And then, I have to price it all. Yikes! THEN, I have to make multiple trips to haul it all to my cousins house for the sale. I keep telling myself it will be worth it all to have it out of the house. Oh, and my kids find it all very exciting because I keep "finding" toys they forgot they had. So, I get it all organized and then they pull it out to play with...LOL!

Well, thanks for stopping by and listening to me whine...*grin*

We have been so enjoying all the beautiful 70 degree weather that Ohio has been blessing us with.
We have been trying to teach our two youngest to ride their bikes..which is a hoot! And lots of exercise for Dad and Mom. *shoo, I'm out of shape*

Here is my card for the June SFYTT challenge. I LOVE Stamping Bella so it was the perfect sketch for me!! I used my newest bella, babyfellabella. Say that a few times fast...


I love this saying that I computer printed onto vellum, " is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God love us." I first read it on a Mary Engelbreit print. So sweet! I made this card for my neighbors daughter who just had their first baby, a little boy, Gavin.
