Sketch 30 & stuff

This week we had a terrific sketch from a DT member, Olena! We also had 2 digi stamps to work with from our sponsor, Paper Popsicles! I actually chose to use the Elizabeth rainy day one. Thought this stamp would be something that would make me think more out of the box plus on what to do with the rain idea. So let me show you the sketch!


Digi Stamp:
Paper Popsicles

Paper: Prima Designer Cardstock, DCWV & SU!

Ink: Mementos

Embellies: Jolee's & ?

Ribbon: It is a shoelace!

Square Punch: Creative Memories

Colored with Prismacolor & blended with Gamsol

Like I said earlier, our sponsor this week is:

You could win the 2 stamps that my wonderful DT friends used this week by just doing the sketch and using Mr. Linky to show us your card! Please join us this week! You can see both stamps at Inspirational Card Sketches! Good luck!!!!

Things are moving at my parents "hole" (that is what I call the house since it burnt down)! The have started the foundation and yesterday filled in the old garage since the house will be on level ground now instead of a slopped down driveway. So at least something is coming out of all this!! Everything will be state of the art and brand new but some how it is still gonna be different. My mom says it will not be home anymore. I think she feels like she can never have that back but I am hoping that the new house will feel like home for her the longer she lives there. Funny how life can change in the blink of an eye. I keep trying to tell myself that there is a reason God had for this so I just need to hold out and I will see it. I always hear that building a house is a nightmare so I am hoping it will go smoothly for them because they need it to!

Well thanks for stopping by to visit with me! I love all your comments. I am hoping to be better at looking at your blogs very soon. School starts next week so I will have more time to do things than I did before! Hugs to all! I also want to encourage you to stop by ICS! We were thrilled to have 50+ people give it a go last week! Come on by!

Hey there. Sorry I havent been scrapping or cardmaking much since the beginning of July. I went to the dr on Wrdnesday. Waitingto hear back if I have the h. pyelori bacteria or not. I am hoping so as then they can give me antibiotics and the symptoms will go away. Hopefully I'll be feeling better soon and can get back to scrapping and maing cards.
