Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #130


Happy Wednesday and welcome to this week's sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where this week's sponsor is Di's Digi Dowloads and up for grabs to our Grand Prize winner...a $10 gift certificate to Diane's store.

Hope you can join us this week and create something using Arlana's beautiful sketch! We appreciate each of you that takes the time to join us in our challenges!

I used one of my very favorite designer paper packs from Stampin' Up that is now retired, Wintergreen. My ribbon and corduroy buttons are also from Stampin' Up....as well as the markers that I colored this cute image with.

Here is a peek at the inside:




I used my new sentiment set from Papertrey Ink to stamp the inside.

On a more personal note, I apologize for not visiting and being around the past several days. There are several couples that my husband and I are close friends with that form a special group and one of those has been fighting cancer for the past year and a half. I had blogged about Jill's battle with esophageal cancer before and unfortunately it ended on Monday around midday. She took a turn for the worse on Sunday and was taken to the hospital where she spent the last hours of her life surrounded by her family. Rick and I are puppy sitting for Jansen ( her husband) and for those of you that read my blog, you know that I am a cat person and have very little experience with dogs....it has been an adventure. Murphy is such a beautiful miniature dachshund and not much larger than my hands, lol she has my largest cat Sable truly buffaloed. Please, for those of you that will, please say a prayer for her family. On top of all of this, my Internet has been down and has just now come back up on Tuesday evening, so I am trying to get this loaded in case we lose it again. It was down all over VA for our service....must have been the cyber Monday shoppers!

I promise to get back around as soon as I can, take care and thanks for understanding.
Hugs to you all and be sure and hug those that you love.

Hi Patti, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend especially so close to Christmas but anytime is never a good time to loose someone you love. How the puppy sitting going? I'm a cat person also so I can understand what your going through. Love your card this week I have this same image and I think it's super cute. Love your green one of my favourite colours. Great job my friend and chin up.
Hugs

Hi Patti,
Just popped by to say thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog.
Your card is gorgeous, love that image. Had a look around your blog too. Lots of inspiration! Just fab!
My thoughts are with your friends family. Hope the pup is behaving! Dogs are so much more work compared to cats!!
Hugs to you,
