you make my world...

Welcome Welcome!!!

Today is 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!

Pam has been rockin' the sketches and the sponsors....

Look who our sponsor is this week!

Make sure you check out Elisabeth's blog...she'll be giving out a free stamp set to a random winner over on the 365 Cards blog...check out the 365 Cards blog for more deets!

Check out our FUN sketch...I've been lovin' sunshine stuff...stamps...papers...you name it, I love it...it's sooo stinkin' happy....

Here's my take on Pam's sketch:

I flipped the sketch and made it wide...hahaha... I know, I broke into my October Afternoon Thrift Shop...again. I paper pieced a sun and outlined the edges with my black copic marker. I stitched down each of the pieces to add more POW to my card...LOL...

I thought that the Ippity branch image would be perfect to layer a sentiment on top....I'm a sucker for sentiments...I picked up this Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday set when I was in Montana called, Simply You.

I hope that you'll join us over at 365 Cards...

♥♥RAK Alert♥♥

Lookie what popped up in my mailbox the other day...a Rose Miller original!

I absolutely GASPED when I saw this card...I remembered seeing it on her blog and LOVING it...sooooo perfect {P.S. it is based off of a sketch by rebel Gloria!}....

Good Grief, if that wasn't enough check out my new 'lil buddy...

She sent me an ORAK {Owl Random Act of Kindness...bahahaha}....isn't she the sweetest...yes, Rose AND the owl....Thanks sooo much sista...I brought it to work and she is sitting in front of my computer monitor:)

Okay peeps, that's it for today!

  36. OMGosh! I spit my coffee out when I saw that owl. You have the best pals! You inspire all of us to RAKs....with your sweet nature and great sense of humor! You know that I am forver on the lookout for owls now! People used to send me pigs! Long story. Thankfully THAT ended! Then....it was glitter due to my aversion to the stuff. To get people to STOP I had to embrace the glitter! brahahaaaa!
