I had so much fun creating this card. Even my two grandkids picked up on who the children in this card reminded them of. My grandson, who is two said, " this is me and this is Sam". I told him yes, that it reminded me of the two of them too. Sam is such a good sister and is always helping her little brother.
The name of this image is: "A Helping Hand"
I paper pieced the dress and the overalls.

Supplies: Paper from Stampin Up, DCWV and Paper Fever. Brads. The Copics I used are: E00 and E02. I hand made the flowers from the paper I used for my card.

I can't believe it has almost been a year since Sweet Sketch started. Arlana truely had a great vision in starting this sketch blog. It is the one thing in my life that has given me a little sanity. I am so grateful for that. It has been so fun blogging with my sisters. We have really had a great time together. I am a little jealous this week because Judi has been with Arlana and our dad all week. I have had to stay home and work. Oh well.....
I just received some great news today. My daughter that lives back east is having a baby boy!! They have a little girl that is two years old. I am sooo excited, I nearly cried...... Just had to share the wonderful news.

A Mother's Work

I have had a very busy weekend with Logan's birthday party and family here. It was wonderful! We had such a great day yesterday. We ended up having the party in my back yard. It was kind of windy and cold even though there was no rain...which we were very happy about. My son and daughter-in-law got a blow out house that the kids played in the whole time.....jumping to their heart content. We had hotdogs and hamburgers. Anyway, it turned out to be a very nice day.
I colored up this image from Sarah Kay a few days ago and decided to make a card. No challenges, just for fun. I have just really enjoyed these sweet images and can't leave them alone. I used paper from Stampin Up and DVWV. Stampin Up pastels and I used my Copics: Y08, YG11, E93, E33, E00, E02, RV42 ans E31. I hope you enjoy my little creation.
