Freshly Made Sketches #48

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I hope you're having a good week so far.  We had a rainy day here yesterday which meant that we were kinda stuck inside but Caleb had a friend over and the kids were occupied!  At least for a while!

We all know that Wednesday's mean that there is a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's sketch is brought to us by the fabulous Tui Nathan!  I must confess I got the idea for my card from Ann Schach when I saw her Paper Players card this week!  I love the Open Sea and since my dad's birthday is approaching next week I thought this might work perfectly!

I used the colours from this week's The Paper Players challenge.  They just worked perfectly with the stamp set.  Sorry Ann this card looks so much like yours!

Please stop on by both blogs and check out what the design teams have created!  You won't be disappointed!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy
DSP: Nautical Expedition (Retired)
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Versamark
Other: White Embossing Powder, Silver Brads, Dimensionals

This is a photo of a little visitor we had to our backyard on Monday.  A little baby bunny.  It was so cute!  Our neighbour had the nest/burrow in their yard and there were 4 babies.  One of the babies managed to somehow find his or her way into our bunny proof backyard!  He is adorable though!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!
