Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #187

Happy Wednesday!  This week is flying by already!  We had such an amazing long weekend!  The boys went flying Saturday morning then we headed to Niagara Falls Saturday afternoon.  After a great game of mini golf, dinner at the rainforest cafe and a ride on the Skywheel we headed to the Greg Frewin Magic Show!  It was amazing.  The boys were in awe!  I mean, how do you make someone disappear and then replace them with a tiger?  The boys did a little quad copter flying with a friend on the weekend and of course there were a few dips in the pool!  Now we are back to winter here and the windchill tonight is supposed to be below zero!

We have a great new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our amazing hostess is Cindy Lovell!  Cindy is so talented and her cards are so creative!  Hop over to her blog and check out all her fine creations!

I need to have a few birthday cards on hand for some upcoming special events!   I love "The Tweet Life" from Reverse Confetti!  Those birds just make me smile!  I wish I could colour them but I'm not a big fan of colouring and I haven't yet started my collection of Copics!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush
DSP: Retired scraps from SU!
Stamps: The Tweet Life (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Memento Black
Other: 4X4 Journal Die (My Creative time), Double Banner Die Confetti Cuts, The Tweet Life Confetti Cuts, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

 They aren't twins at all!!!

 My and my sweet Jake

Quad Copter Fun

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the fabulous cards the design team has come up with!  They are amazing!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
