Happy Wednesday! We are currently sitting in the middle of the last full week in April! How did that happen? I feel like it was just the beginning of March and we are cruising into May and closer to my son's 11th birthday. Mom needs to get working on this. Turning 11 is a big deal and since this is his first year without a party, I need to change my course of planning and figure out something really fun to do as a family to celebrate!
We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of one of our resident Texans! On a side note - I would love to visit Texas sometime. I just think it's just one of those places I need to see! I imagine there are cacti and cowboy hats everywhere. I'm pretty sure that's not the case though! Anyhow, Amy O'Neill is our amazing hostess this week. She is our super creative, colour whiz. I always am awed by the cool designs and combinations she comes up with!
Amy's sketch threw me for a bit of a loop. I originally had one design in mind but realized quickly that wouldn't work so moved onto Plan B. Now, Plan B saw a few renditions but I settled on this very gold accented one! I happened to have this one sheet of DSP from the Pop of Pink pack and I had to use it! I think this card will work nicely to celebrate my in laws upcoming wedding anniversary!
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil
DSP: Pop of Pink
Stamps: Sweet Celebrations (Lil Inkers)
Other: Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Celebrate Word Die (Lil Inkers), Double Stitched Circles (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals

Hello! Happy Wednesday!
I hope you are having a great start to your week! We are having a beautiful start to our week. We were able to celebrate my mom's birthday this past weekend. It was a lovely weekend and I was so happy to be able to spend time with my mom!
We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! I have the privilege of being this week's hostess! I hope you enjoy the sketch that I've come up with this week!
I had a little piece of the Moroccan DSP that I decided to use on this card! It's just so pretty! I gave colouring the Pretty Poppies set a whirl. I used my Zig markers and they worked just fine this time! I think this is the first time I didn't cry while colouring!!!!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week! It's hard to believe it's already April and spring is hopefully right around the corner. We had a mild winter but spring hasn't exactly been warm and spring like! Let's just say April showers have been plentiful and will hopefully bring lots and lots of pretty May flowers!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of our wonderful French hostess Cecile Ribon! Cecile makes the most beautiful cards! Head over to her blog and check it out!
I really love the Carried Away DSP and had to use it again! The colours are some of my favourites! At first I thought the squares would be a little too much but when I decided to use that DSP it came together rather quickly. Of course these days I can't seem to make a card without throwing on some sequins or glitter!!!
Cardstock: Smokey Slate, Night of Navy
DSP: Carried Away
Stamps: In a Big Way (MFT)
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Sequins, Dimensionals
