Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

Every Friday Beate over at Fresh and Fun has a weekend sketch challenge she posts. I love allt he sketches she has chosen Im still stuck on week #8 sketch. Love it and I cant stop using it! This is just a warning that I made a card using it this weekend so you will be seeing it again this week. LOL! I thought I would give you a break from Baroque Motifs although I did you use it for my Featured Stamper challenge card-not my fault she used Carte Postale and I wanted to keep the same feel of the card! If you havent checked it out head over to SCS to check out Ana's gallery or click on the link for Ink A Stamp under my awesome blogs.

Okay for this card I used Looks like spring and the flower punch. The top panel is pixie pink and always artichoke. The bottom panel is from the POP in celery. To cover up where all the paper meets I cut a 1/4" strip of certainly celery and pierced it. I went over my piercings on the celery strips and the oval scallops w/the white gel pen. The main image is the large flower from the Looks like spring set stamped off 2 x's before stamping on my WW then I stamped the sentiment from Its your bday in artichoke and layered on the artichoke scalloped oval. The flowers on the pixie pink panel are stamped tone on tone and I went over the center w/diamond stickles.

I hope you all had a great weekend! My Dad is 52 years old day. Happy Birthday Daddy! We grilled and spent the evening w/him last night and celebrated. Have you ever seen a kitten attack a child? It was so funny the kids had been chasing a new kitten my Dad has the entire night and we were getting ready to leave and Madison was running over to Daddy to tell him bye and this kitten had been stalking her in the bushes and jumped out at her! It was so cute! He was just getting her back! On a sad kitty note w/a cute twist. My oldest daughter has had a cat named Topaz since she was 2 and we found her dead under the porch Sat. night. She had a bad cut on her arm(a hawk or owl) and we had treated it but I think it was already bad before we ever found it. So we had to sit down and have the talk w/the kids about death we've had brief conversations when distant relatives have passed but thankfully no close realtives have passed so they have not had to really deal w/death yet. I didnt really want them to they are still so young. Well after we had the talk my middle girl Madison goes around looking for the phone and Danny asked her what she was doing. She was firing mad she was calling God to tell him she wanted her cat back. You would have to know my little girl she is such a cutie pie!!! Danny had to hide the phones b/c she was adament (sp) she was calling God and telling him she was getting her cat back. Well you would have thought she would forget about it right?!?! church Sunday during children's church in front of the entire congregation she announces to everyone she is mad at God b/c he took her cat!

Gotta love that Maddie (aka: Drama Queen). Had fun with you Saturday while we stamped and talked. Tell my grands I am so sorry about Topaz.
