Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #168

Happy New Year!  Can you believe it's January already?  That break went so fast!  We had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!  The boys and I spent some time with my parents.  They sure love being with their Grannie and Papa!  I can't imagine how quiet my parent's house was when we left!!!

We have a  great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today!  The fabulous Amy O'Neill brings us this week's great sketch!  Another one that's super versatile!  I love Amy and her beautiful cards!  Head over to her blog and enjoy yourself for a while!
I was fortunate to receive some money for Christmas and ordered myself some stuff from Lil' Inkers! I was so excited when my order showed up the other day!  Talk about fast shipping!!!  I couldn't wait to use it!

My sweet friend Jeanette's birthday is on Tuesday.  She loves herself a good decaf caramel macchiato from Starbucks!  I couldn't imagine making her a card without this cup! I still had some Bermuda Bay paper on my table and decided to work with it along those fabulous Bermuda Bay sequins that you will find in the new Occasions catalogue!  You will love them!
