Good morning ladies... Are you ready for another fun week at SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY? I hope we go!!

Our sponsor this week is Tracy from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE

THE WINNER WILL RECEIVE THREE (3) IMAGES. So, hurry on over and join us in the fun!

I fell in love with this sweet image the moment I saw it. I made two different versions using different color schemes. You can find this sweet gem over at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE.

I really had fun making these cards. I used crystal effects on the merimad and turtle. You really can't tell that I used it in the pictures but it really did make a nice effect on the cards. I used Stampin Up paper and other paper that Arlana had on hand...sorry, I can't remember what it was. I used her border punch, rhinestones, pearls, ribbon and other emblishments.

Thanks Arlana!

I made these cards while visiting my sisters and dad. We had a great time together and actually ended up one day at the Scrapbooking Expo in Salt Lake City. We shopped until we dropped and enjoyed each others company. We really had a great day together!

I hope you enjoy my little creations. Hop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and join us in the fun this week.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Your comments are always appreciated!

  8. Hi Nancy, it sounds like you and your sisters had a grand time plus you guys crafted together; how fun! I envy doing that - sounds like fun! Your cards are both so creative and pretty with those lovely papers. I love how you colored them both to fit the colors in the design - very nice! ;)

  9. Hello Nancy, Oh how I loved watching you color and create this card! It was gorgeous when you colored it but it looked like it was underwater when you put on all the Crystal Effects!!!! The perfect touch! Your added embellishments were so fun too on both cards! It was great to be with you and Arlana again!

  10. Great cards! I love that image and almost chose it myself. :) The papers you chose really pick up the colors in your image.

  11. I was so happy you used one of the new enchantment images. Aren't they just the best? I adore how you did her up 2 different ways. I just got all of them myself!!! Bravo!

  12. Well look at Miss Nancy churning them out this week. Love it! The image looks like you're looking through a porthole on a submarine or something, very funky and clever. Love the way you've coloured her, am becoming quite obsessed with it all really.
