2 Sketches 4 You

It has been a nasty wet day here in Kentucky. It has rained the entire day. I kept waiting for the rain to stop to go and check our mail, well guess what, it didn't stop. So I went to get the mail anyway and got soaked (guess I should have used an umbrella!). Took my little dog Jake with me and of course he went thru every mud puddle he could find...he's a little meanie sometimes! I made some chicken chowder this evening, it is so tasty and pretty that I had to take a picture. It will warm you up on a cold day. It is an Amish recipe and so easy.

Already done with my 2 Sketches 4 You card this week, is anyone impressed I'm so early? I am! Seems like I take all week thinking about what I'm going to create! But this week the card came together in minutes and I just love when that happens, because it is a rare thing! I used Colorbok, Melissa Frances, and DCWV paper, K&Co. and Making Memories Embellishments, Michaels Ribbon, and buttons. I loved this week's sketch, thought it was fun and a design I can use over and over.


This weekend is Christmas with my family. I have sooooo much wrapping to do, but I can't wait to deliver all of the gifts....they are everywhere! My Hubby has begged me to go ahead and let us open our presents to eachother (could it be because of that flat screen TV he's getting???). I refuse though, we're waiting till Christmas Eve! Hope you enjoy my little card:)

Ok, Amber....that chowder looks fabulous! Love the bread bowl. What a food for the soul looking creation.
And your card is adorable. Love the stitched detailing and the fun ribbon treatment, and the buttons are so cute. Love buttons on a project.
Hope it stops raining for you soon. I know in general we can all use all the rain we can get, but it's always so gloomy, isn't it?
