Happy Wednesday! We had a crazy storm here yesterday and I wondered if this post would even work! We spent the morning at the beach again yesterday! The boys love playing in the sand and the water. Tomorrow morning will be our Olympics party...not sure what will be on tap for today!
The new Holiday Catalogue is available for everyone TODAY! I'll try and have a link directly to the catalogue up shortly or you can just click on my "Shop 24-7" link to the right and see all the fun new products that are now available!
Today's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge sketch comes from the talented (and hopefully well rested after her vacation) Lesley Croghan! When I first saw it I thought the Top Note sketch would be easy but then I found it a little more challenging. I decided to do another fall card and use the new Wonderfall stamp set and corresponding Bigz die (both available TODAY!). Oh, not to mention my favourite Orchard Harvest DSP (also available today).
I cut my Top Note out of the new Core'dinations Early Espresso cardstock (also available today!) and then sanded off some of that top layer to show the inside colour off! It's so fun...I can't stop using it! Of course I had to emboss the background with the woodgrain...I'm sorry! I just LOVE the new stuff!

This is a picture of the storm and the branches that came down! We were without power for a few hours but it was restored rather quickly!
The other night we had to walk down my parents street to get the mail...Caleb rode his bike and Jacob decided that he would push the wheelbarrow all the way there and back...hilarious! Didn't quite make it back but thankfully the wheelbarrow is light!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
