Congrats to the Newlyweds - DS106 and WAW86

Hello Delightful friends and family!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their first week of summer.  We have experienced 3 days of light rain, perfect for my flowers and lawn but the humidity is 90% and we are feeling it!  The trickle of perspiration down my back is about to drive me crazy.  I finally had to take a walk around the block just to cool off!  But I did manage to make a card for a wedding that's coming up this weekend before heading out.  
I haven't entered  a sketch challenge in so long but when I saw this one from Jen Shults (Deconstructed Sketch #106) I knew it would be perfect for the card.  I've used the Penny Black  hydrangea from the "Flower Festival" set and colored it with Copic markers.  This was my third attempt at coloring this image!!  Finally I got it at least presentable!

I'm also entering this in Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes) #86

Happy Birthday Sweet and Sassy, Addy!

Hello Delightful friends and family!  Wow it's been over a month of lots of activities that kept me out of the craft room and away from my blog.  But with my little granddaughter turning four (Addy) I of course had to make her a card.  This  was inspired by the Wednesday sketch challenge at the MFT blog (MFTWSC127 ).  I didn't make the deadline to post today but that's okay, but I still want to give credit for the the great sketch inspiration. 
We had Addy's party on Saturday (however, her birthday is today) so I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures.

Here is the card I made her.  Love the Pure Innocence stamp set.  It fits little Miss Addy-tude to a "t".  I've colored the image with Copic Markers and paper pieced her outfit. At the end of this post has the rest of the "ingredients."


Addy told us that she wanted a Fishing rod for her birthday so guess what?  She got a fishing rod plus a tackle box, flotation vest, hat and of course some gummy worms for....bait! ha!

She blew out her candles, no problem!

Here she is all happy and ready to head to the river or lagoon for some fishin' time with Poppa!  They are making plans to go very soon!!
