I think these two image from Polly Craft Designs are so cute. They are: "Spring Things and Sky Fairy-Love from Above." the challenge for this week is to double up on the images. What a fun idea!! I fell in love with the ducks the first time I saw it. It reminds me of when I was growing up. We had all kinds of animals. I had a pet goose that would follow me everywhere. My dad also raised chickens, ducks, banty name it, we had it. It was so much fun growing up with all the animals and birds that we had on the farm. This just brings back alot of fond memories. Thanks Paula, for the stroll down memory lane! And, thanks for allowing us to use your sweet image.

I used paper from The American Craft Girl colletion.
Copic markers: RV11, RV13, YG03, YO8 and YR65.
American Craft Girl Border punch.

It has been quit the week for me...My kids came for the weekend and celebrated my birthday early. We had such a good time together. It was my birthday yesterday...I had such a wonderful day. I received many phone calls and friends stopping by to wish me happy birthday. I have a house full of flowers again...It has truely been a blessing to have such good friends and family around me at this time. It really helped me get though the day. Thanks everyone!

My sister and the rest of the DT are so excited about all of the participants over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this past week. Wow!!!! We had 45 entries... Thank you for joining us! We had such wonderful entries and your cards are such an inspiration to us. Stop on over here to see who is our winner for the challenge this last week.

For this week challenge, we have our monthly sponsor: "THE DIGI STAMP BOUTIQUE"

We are so delighted to have Sally Ann back with us. We always enjoy working with her digi's. The winner will receive $10.00 in digi images. Our DT has a wonderful lineup of cards for you!

For this week challenge I used Sally's sweet images called: " Murtle Turtle and Flower". I couldn't help myself and did a second card and used: "Shelly Turtle and Cake." Aren't these just the cutest images?
I used sentiments from Stampin Up. And to be honest with you, I totally forgot to write down what paper I used. Some of it is from Stampin Up and I think, hummm...I better not think. I am just not sure at this point where the other paper is from. I used my Copic markers and added the flowers and rhinestones for the emblishment. I also added Crystal Effects to the turtles, flowers and the cupcake. I hope you enjoy my little creations! And, I hope you will stop by Sweet Sketch Wednesday and join in the fun this week!!! Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's cards. We have some wondrerful creations this week.
