Sketch Saturday sketch 47!!

A lovely good morning to you all :).

Before I tell you anything else I want to remind you that there are still two chances at prizes to be won over at the Pink Cat Studio blog. The first one is by making a card for my challenge which ends next Monday read more about that HERE and the second is by adding the new release blinkie on the right to your blog which you can do until next Wednesday and you can read more about that HERE.

Anyways... it's Saturday so the reason you must be stopping by on my blog is probably SKETCH SATURDAY!! It's already time for sketch 47 and I can't believe how many people are joining us now each week!! Thank you all so much for your participation. I'm absolutely sure you'll be wanting to try out Jo's sketch for this week. Here it is:

I loved working with this sketch!! And I personally am so pleased how my card turned out. Here's the picture:
The image is from Whipper Snapper and when I saw it in their shop I knew I had to have it. The image reminds me so much of my oldest daughter Dyanne. Her favourite toy is a little rabbit which she carries around with her everywhere and when her hair isn't in a ponytail it looks just like the hair of this little cutie :). Here is a close up:

I made this card for my sister in law who is going to have a sleep over at our house on Tuesday the 28th. The reason is because that gives me the chances to take my husband away to a concert and a lovely little hotel in Amsterdam for our fifth wedding anniversary. The reason why I can post this here is because I couldn't keep this a secret and he knows (shame on me), I'm affraid he's much better at keeping secrets because I still haven't figured out what we are going to be doing next weekend (see two posts below :) ). Anyway, my oldest is very excited about her sweet aunt staying over, she is planning to sleep together in our bed and stuff, so cute :). Here is the inside of the card:
Because my SIL is also going to be watching over my youngest Amy she had to be on the card to. Another cutie from Whipper Snapper there :).

The sentiment was done on my computer and reads "Heel erg bedankt" which means "Thank you very much" in Dutch. The design papers are all Cosmo Cricket and I love them so much!! The cardstock is from stash and I have embossed some pieces with my Cuttlebug folder. I also used my new Peony nestie which I am mad about so you'll be seeing more of that one. The ribbon I got as part of a very generous gift from my friend Helma who sells the gorgeous ribbon in a lot of gorgeous colours in her shop Stamping Corner. I guess that's all there is to tell about this one :).
We have gotten ourselves another brilliant guest designer for the next two weeks and her name is Diane. I have been checking out her blog and Diane has a unique style, I can't wait to see what gorgeous cards she is going to show us this week and the next. Welcome to the team Diane!! Be sure to check out her blog and of course the blogs of my extremely talented co-design team members.
And now you know what's coming don't you? Get to work people!! Make a gorgeous creation with Jo's sketch. To get your creative braincells more motivated this week we are being sponsored once again by the lovely Emma Lockley :). As by now you should know Emma is a UK independant Stampin Up demonstrator. Be sure to check out the Sketch Saturday blog for the details!!
Have a great weekend everybody!!
