congrats along with me & u.

Happy Saturday!!!!

I have a couple cards to share with you today...first up is my take on Heather's bonus sketch over on 2s4y. Darin asked if I would make a graduation card for his niece. I think that the Practicing Creativity, Look Up set, is perfect for that occasion.

My Amy Butler papers have been horribly neglected so I decided to paper piece the hot air balloon/banner with it. The cloud paper is Bella Blvd.

Here's Heather's sketch:

I decided to give Laura's sketch another go..especially since I've been wanting to play with some new prima's that I recently picked up...

Actually, my card is based on that Prima chippie...I ended up using 3 different Prima papers...

I love how you can see text print throughout the papers...the shabby chic collection is wow...LOVE their stuff...

Any super fun plans? It's just me and the girl this weekend...the boy went camping so it's quite calm & quiet in the household:) We took my mom out for vietnamese last night...the girl drove us over to my Mom's...it's really not that far but she was driving with other cars on the road...I didn't realize how nervous/tense I was until we switched seats when we got to my Mom's...I was instantly exhausted...you should have seen the look of pure shock on my Momma's face when she saw us switching seats...LOL...she hasn't seen the girl drive yet.

Okay, come on back tomorrow for my 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday card...we have a super sponsor too!
