Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!!

Happy Wednesday my friends!!  What a wonderful weekend I just had!!  We celebrated my daughter's pregnancy with a Baby Shower on Saturday - Sharing a few pics =)  William will have a cousin in just 2 months =)  Two sweet boys to grow up together - Best Buddies!!  Are any of you Quilters?  I always feel like making a card (especially when following a Sketch) is a lot like making a Quilt.  My first love was quilting, then when I found Card Making, I found it is a lot like creating a Quilt, just in less time!!    Then, Sunday, at church I had the opportunity to serve in the Nursery...  That meant time with William and Jakob, what a Blessed Sunday - AND - I will be listening to the Sermon by Podcast at - I'd love to have you check out the web site...  LifeSong just started holding our Sunday Worship service in Hanover MA.  God is SO GOOD!!

On to my Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 post...  This week our Sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique - Sally-Ann Hancock is such a faithful Sponsor!!  The whole Design Team just adores her images.  Make sure you check out all the creations...  we are all thinking Spring and Easter by our image choices!! 

Here is the Sketch for this week...

And, here is my card (I've got baby on the brain =)

I hope you are having a wonderful week and wish you all a very Blessed Easter!!
