Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week! We're in the home stretch of the school year. Us Canadians have to go until the end of June. The kids are so done with school though but they're plugging away. It's been a good year for both boys. They loved their teachers and they are both sad that they are moving on. I am thankful for four teachers who put so much effort and energy and love into my boys! They appreciated every minute!

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe it's already the middle of June! Wow! Father's Day is fast approaching! I can't believe how that snuck up on me! I don't live all that close to my parents so I don't get to see my dad for Father's Day but that sure doesn't mean I don't appreciate him. He is the best dad and Papa in the world!
We have a fun sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing Jennifer Timko! Jen creates such beautiful cards! They are so creative and I am always inspired by what she's done! Check out her blog and you will not be disappointed!
Jen's sketch is very open for interpretation this week! I was a little worried since I wanted to use it to make a Father's Day card! I love the Open Sea (a lot!!!) and so I decided to combine that with some double garland banners from Reverse Confetti! Some blue, red and white to make it even more nautical and I called it a day!
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Silver
Stamps: The Open Sea, Crazy For You
Ink: Night of Navy, Crumb Cake

Happy Wednesday! I hope you've had a great start to your week! I spent most of my day yesterday doing some cutting for our church camp this summer. One of the projects we are making requires 225 envelopes. I got those cut yesterday but the scoring and punching may take a while! I think I need to pick easier projects!
Being Wednesday, we have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill. Amy has the most amazing eye for colour and comes up with the best colour combinations! Check out her blog and all of her creative cards!
I must admit that this sketch may have given me a slight challenge! I need an anniversary card this week. You see my mom and dad are celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary next week and I wanted to make them a card that needed to get in the mail yesterday! That oval threw me for a loop though! I also realized in the creating of this card that I only one one stamp that says "Happy Anniversary". I could have used "welcome baby" and my mom and dad probably would have gotten a big chuckle out of it but I decided to go with "Happiness Always" instead!
I used the flower from Secret Garden and coloured it using Blendabilities. The flower started out as a Rich Razzleberry flower but ended up being Daffodil Delight! I tell you, sometimes cards come together easy and sometimes they take a LONG time!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
DSP: Brights Paper Stack (Retired)
Stamps: Secret Garden, And Many More
Ink: Stazon Black, Moss Meadow
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Oval Spellbinders, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Secret Garden Framelits, Dimensionals

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far! We had a great weekend. My parents came down for a visit and my mom so willingly helped me with my camp preparations.
