Wishing for Spring

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at Sweet Sketch Wednesday , but before we get into the details, I would like to thank each of you that has emailed me or posted a comment with your thoughts and prayers, Rick and I so appreciate it. Yesterday was a long, tough day but it also was filled with loads of love, from family and friends and we both are so blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives.

Now to the fun stuff on this week's challenge.....

Our sketch:

Isn't that great???? Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps , Jodie is so generous with her fantastic designs and the Grand Prize winner this week with have their choice of 7 digital stamps, yeah!

My card uses her image "Daffodil Can" and I love my card this week (wink, even if I was the creator) as I love this gingham paper from Stampin' Up's retired Bella Rose collection, what will I do when it is gone? I added some red and yellow card stock to support my colors and a bit of paper piercing for added interest. I love the polka dot brad for my flower center, especially with the gingham flower. Hope you like it as well and it inspires you to give our sketch a try this week.

Be sure and check out the beautiful cards created this week by my team mates.
I hope to be back soon visiting and creating, thanks for bearing with me during this busy, trying time and again Love You All, thanks for being there!

Hi Patti, I'm so sorry to hear of your news and your sad loss, both you and Rick are in my prayers. Sometimes it's easier on everyone once they has gone to a better place.100 apologies for not commenting sooner, but I've had one of those weeks, getting hubby and my two sons off to school camp my hubby and eldest son have gone into the mountains for a trek, white water rafting, abseiling, mountain biking and kayaking all with a broken arm and that's another story......well my son has the broken arm.....I love your card that watering can is just perfect and a wonderful image. I love your colour combo and your design papers. Great card.
