Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Fresh Brewed Designs!!

Hi there friends!!  How is your Winter going...?  I was just saying last week how mile the Winter has been and then - POW - we got hit with a Blizzard.  I have to say I do enjoy the snow, especially when I don't have to shovel.  Everything is so clean and white - absolutely beautiful.  A little less than two feet would have been nice, but this girl isn't complaining - instead I am enjoying God's beauty in this season!!

Fresh Brewed DesignsI am still without a computer at home which is cramping my Blogging a bit, so I'm late with my post...  I am always so excited to have Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs Sponsor SSW2!!  I just love Heather and all her wonderful images, speaking of which, there have been some new, unique images just released on FBD's January Digi Release - be sure to check them out!!

Now, on to this week's post for SSW2.  Being the last Friday of the month the Sketch is an oldie but goodie...

And here is my card using Striped Snowman - appropriate for this Wintry weather we are having here in New England!!  I do miss the days when my kids were younger and we would build Snowmen...
I hope you will head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and check out the rest of the Design Team cards - some very talented ladies to give you lots of inspiration!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! 
Blessings to you all!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Sami Stamps

Hi there friends!!  I'm a bit late with my post...  I really need to get a computer at home!!  One day...

Any way, I hope you are all having a great start to this New Year 2015!!  I have noticed that having my two Grandsons has just made time seem to pass more quickly.  William's first birthday is coming up on the 24th - how is that possible??  I haven't shared a picture in awhile so thought I would do that =)  I had both Will and Landon last Saturday for a bit and so enjoyed watching them "play" together - I am truly Blessed!!

This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday2, we have a new Sketch and are being Sponsored by Sami Stamps!!  Always love to create with her sweet whimsical images!!
First off, here is the Sketch...

and here is my card...
I hope you will head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and check out the rest of the Design Team cards - all so wonderful!!
Since I'm on a lunch break at work I am keeping this short but sweet =)
Wishing you all a wonderful week !!
Blessings to you!!

SSW2 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Welcome friends!!  One week and it's Christmas!!  Are you ready...?  I do have a lot to do (putting up the tree would be nice...), but in the midst of all the Christmas bustle, shopping, wrapping, work... I am keeping the true meaning of Christmas first and foremost in my thoughts, the birth of Jesus!!  So thankful for this beautiful time of year and for the many reminders of why we celebrate...  because of that, I am ready!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 has a definite Christmas feel this week with so many wonderful Christmas cards created by the Design Team.  We have Sally-Ann of Digi Stamp Boutique as our Sponsor this week.  She has the most wonderful Christmas images as well as images for any occasion!!  I just love to browse through her shop.  I do hope you will visit and do the same =)

Here is this week's Sketch...

Even the Sketch has a Christmas feel to it!!

and...  here is my card using "Cheeky Monkey Christmas"

I'll tell you a little secret...  I have been so busy, and am getting over a sinus infection which was with me for too many weeks and left me just exhausted.  Well, I got up early this morning, put my card together, but because my lap top died, I couldn't print the image until I got to work.  So, I brought along some nice sharp scissors, some Copics and finished my card at work.  Well, what I forgot was to bring an appropriate marker for the little penguin's geek and feet...  so, Sharpie hi-liter's to the rescue.  I can't say I love the bright orange, but I am glad I was able to get my card finished and posted and No ONE will miss that little penguin!!

Well, that's it for this week's post, I so appreciate each and everyone of you that stops by!!

Blessings to you!!
