Sweet Sketch Wednesday 108 & Bugaboo

Good morning.  I just got back from visiting with my two sisters and one of my daughter's for the weekend.  We sure had a great time together. We had lots of fun shopping, eating and movie watching. The weather was gorgeous while we were visiting in Utah.  Judi and I where able to get out and go for our three mile walk a couple of the mornings.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 107 & Amber Inks

Hello, Sweet Sketch Wednesday followers.  I want to wish you a warm welcome today.
Our sponsor this week is AMBER INKS

Amber Inks is offering our GRAND PRIZE WINNER  a $15.00 Gift Certificate
How awesome is that!!!
Here is Arlana's sketch

I just had to use this image.  My daughter sell Miche Bags. If you have ever seen them, they are amazing.  They have three different size purses.  (The Big Bag, the Classic and the Mini).  Of course, I have to have the Big Bag.  The neat thing about them is that you have a base bag and then you have the shell that covers the base and you can change the look of your bag every day if you want.  They are the most amazing bag I have ever had.  So, I no longer have to pull everything out of my bag when I want a new purse.  You pull the base out and put the new shell on.  The sentiment on my card says it all......"But, I need it".  I have seven shells for my big bag.  I also have the Classic bag with four shells.  I would think I am spoiled.  But, they are just so much fun.  I have never been so excited about a purse. 
If you would like to take a look at them, you can visit my daughters website at:

If you are interested, you can purchase them right on her site as well.
Have fun looking......I promise you, you will be hooked.

And, here is my card for today.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I ended up having to work on Monday even though it was a holiday.  I guess that is the way it goes when you have a set schedule and things have to be done on time. 
I sure hope that Blogger will be up and running like it should be this week.  It has been very difficult to comment and sometimes even upload our cards.  I know that blogger is working on the problem.  If you have another search engine on your computer, such as Safari or Google Crome you should be able to comment.  I have been using Safari all week.  If you have Foxfire and Internet Explorer, it is still not working. 

We sure have a fun sponsor this week.
Our sponsor is: Christy Croll from TIDDLYINKS.
Our grand PRIZE winner will receive a $10.00 Gift Certificate.

Here is Arlana's Sketch
