Let's Go for a Spin!! Sweet Sketch Wednesday 83 and By LORi Designs

Has everyone recovered from the holidays?  It is tough getting back into the swing of things and go back to work.  I didn't have much time off, but I sure enjoyed what time I did have with my kids.  I really hated to see them go back home.  I even got off my exercise routine for about ten days and now I am paying for it.  I walk with a co-worker five days a week.  We walk three miles a day.  I feel so good when I do it....but. I am not sure how much it helps.  Oh well.  It has been one of my goals for the past couple of years. 
Well, are you ready for a new sketch this week over at
Our DT has really made some gorgeous cards for you this week.  Please stop by their blogs and take a peek!

Our sponsor this week is:
We are so pleased to have a new sponsor for you this week.  Lori has some sweet images.  Your can check out her blog here.

Lori will be offering a $10.00 gift certificate to the Grand prize winner this week..

The name of this image is "Ethan"

I have one grandson that loves skate boarding and I thought this would be a great card for him.  I hope you enjoy it! 
I used Stampin Up paper along with brown Brazzle paper. The plaid paper is from my stash and I am not sure what the brand name is.  I used Copics:  YR00,E33, E13, E37,Y08,Y17, YG95, YG03 and B000. I used gross grain ribbon and brads from "Miss Elizabeth Mini Epoxy Stickers".  Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder. The sentiment is digital.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments!


  1. The perfect card for your grandson! I love the papers with Ethan - they go so well together! Good for you for walking 3 miles a day. Sometimes I think about walking around the block for 10 mins and that poops me out!!!

  8. Hello Nancy...what a perfect boy birthday card! I love this image. What a great look with the woodgrain paper and the embossing. Those epoxy stickers are perfect with your card too! Wish I could walk with you...I am missing my walks as I am pretty much confined to the house now!

I'm glad you enjoyed the little time you had off. Congrats on the award you receive - you know your blog is very stylish! Good for you to walk like you do. I injured my foot (plantar fasciitis) and can't walk but it should heal in a few months. Ugh, I desperately need to exercise so we're going to do the bike routine. :-)
