Fab Friday Challenge

Sorry for being MIA this week!  It was our vacation week and we spent most of our time doing fun things as a family to celebrate the final week of summer before school starts on Tuesday!  I am looking forward to the boys starting school - especially Jacob who starts Junior Kindergarten but it does make me sad to see them growing up so fast!

I found a new challenge online and most of you know I LOVE sketches!    Fab Friday introduced their very first challenge this week and it's a sketch challenge!  Check it out!  I loved this sketch when I saw it I thought about all the wonderful possibilities!  I wanted to keep the sketch fairly clean and I knew immediately that I wanted to use my Aviary set...I hadn't used it in a while and it NEEDED to come out!  

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
DSP: In Colour Pattern Stack (Raspberry Ripple)
Stamps: Aviary, Create a Cupcake (sentiment)
Ink: Basic Black, Raspberry Ripple
Other: Bitty Banners Framelits Die, Basic Rhinestones, Chevron TIEF,  Raspberry Ripple Dahlia, Word Window Punch

Here's a little picture of my train loving boys beside the train we went on Saturday morning!  We road from Waterloo (Ontario) to St. Jacob's!  The boys LOVED it!  They were in train heaven!

I hopefully will be back tomorrow with a new card!
Thanks for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day!
