Sketches & Color

Hi all!  I have a new card and a new sketch to share with you tonite.  I just love the challenges at The Play Date Cafe.  This week's PDCC Challenge 77 is:


Isn't this a lovely picture?  The colors are so calming.  Here's my card:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock and ink.  My patterned paper is Glitz and American Crafts.  I used Kaiser and Teresa Collings bling.  And my stamps are from Unity Stamps.  I love the sentiment "While I breathe, I hope".  It's so true, as long as there is the breath of life in our body, God has given us hope.  This sentiment really hits home since my Papaw has been sick, I know as long as I breathe, I hope and Pray he improves and has comfort.  Hope is a powerful thing! 

Next up is a a challenge from Sketchy Thursdays:


Instead of making it a 2 page LO, I shrunk mine into a 1 pager:


This is my sweet, psychotic duck, Fredda Quackers (brown).  Her "man", Frank Quackers is in white.  She definitely thinks she is the Queen of the Barnyard.  She drags Frank everywhere, it's all the obese duck can do to keep up with his woman.  Sometimes I think she just keeps him on the go purely for meaness.  She wears the pants in the relationship! 

For this LO I used goodies from the April Sampler Kit at Scrapbooking Supplies R Us
And "thanks" to all my new followers!
