Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great start to your week! We're having a great week. This is the first week that we're all home together. Well, the 2 boys and I! The cats are having a hay day with their boys home! Our kitten is hardly sleeping and then she kinda acts likes a wild toddler. Hopefully she'll get into the routine!!!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is the lovely Kim Singdahlsen. Kim's cards are gorgeous and I love your collection of stamps and dies! They're always so beautiful!
I loved Kim's sketch and knew right away I wanted to use the double stitched Speech Bubbles from Lil Inkers! I still had the paper from last week's card sitting on the my desk still so I had to use it again! I love these black and white stripes! My die holder was sitting open and these speech bubbles jumped out at me! I decided to add on a gold flower because the white bubble looked a little naked!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week! We are enjoying a great summer so far. The boys are in a music camp this week. They are both drummers and a group of kids learns 3-4 songs all week and then they have a concert on Friday night. It's amazing how quickly they can learn the songs and how amazing they sound by Friday! Caleb did it last year but this year both boys are doing it. Thankfully they have two drum kits in the band!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is the amazing and super fun Linda Callahan. Linda's cards are always thoughtful and often quite punny! Head on over to her blog and check them out!
Linda's sketch has a LOT of circles on it. Not just one, but there are three HUGE circles. Okay, they're not huge but if you don't like circles they seem super big! I decided I just didn't want to tackle circles and opted to go with triangles instead!! I have some scrap paper left from camp and used some of the Tutti Frutti for the card! I decided to go for a black, white and red scheme. I really do love red!!!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
DSP: Tutti Frutti
Stamps: Sentiment Essentials (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Dual Stitched Triangles (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a great start to their week! We are right in the middle of camp week. It's a crazy but fun week. I must say I definitely don't feel as young as I used to! We have 20 kids in the morning and 20 kids in the afternoon making cards or other projects with our group. They do 4 projects each morning/afternoon so a total of 20 over the week. My youngest is doing flag football and robotics and he's having a blast! So many fun choices for the kids!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is our favourite French card maker, Cecile Ribon! Cecile has the most amazing dies and I'm always so intrigued by how she uses them! Head over to her blog to check them out!
So I really apologize of how crooked that triangle piece is at the top of the card. Seriously. It was in a hurry and had to pack for camp and this is what happened. I'm ashamed. Truly! I had this paper sitting on my desk - left over from a camp project I was trying out. I figured I would add in a little butterfly and bee! I just love little bugs!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Dragonfly Dreams, Gorgeous Grunge
