Sweet Sketch Wednesday is proud to have
as our sponsor this week.

Kristine is offering a $10.00 gift certificate to the winner. Stop on over at
and join us in the fun!! We would love to see your creations!
The sketch this week is an interesting one. It was a challenge for me. Lets see what kind of a challenge it is for you!
I just got back in town Sunday morning at 2 am...what a long day flying. It was really hard to come home. I had such a good time. My daughter and I spent the first week making the curtains, bumper pads, blankets, receiving blankets, sheets and pillows for the baby's room. It turned out so cute. I wish now I had thought about taking pictures. We got it all set up and it is adorable, ready for the arrival of their son.
That was our number one, we spent the two weeks potty training my grand-daughter. That took both my daughters and my full attention 24-7. Wow, what a strong willed little gal. She knows what she wants and it wasn't being potty trained. But, we prevailed!!! Thank heavens for sticker charts and rewards...
Well, here is my card for the week. Hope you enjoy!!

I really like this image. She seems so confident and sure of herself. And, just like the paper in the background, "I can do anything and I follow my heart, I am brave and I am a friend"... What a great motto.
Have a great week everyone!!!

  12. Hi Nancy! I love your card this week. Purple is most definitely my fav color. Great Dp & pretty handmade flower. Glad you had a lovely time with your family :)

  13. Great card Nancy, I love the colours and the image. I apparently had the easiest child in the world to potty train, just seemed to do it himself and never wet the bed once so congratulations on getting your granddaughter through it, I'm sure your daughter was very grateful.

  14. Love it love it love it!! Nancy this is so cute and it's my favorite color.
