Sweet Sketch Wednesday with Digi Stamp Boutique

Good morning!!

Well can you believe it is the middle of the week already? Not to put a damper in your mood, we are in the middle of August too!  Where did the summer go, seems it was just the last day of school and now today is the first day of school for the kids here. Now I do have to tell you, this past week I was looking forward to seeing that school bus pull up this morning. It's been hard to keep these boys from being bored.LOL!!

Today is one of my favorite days of the week, as I get to share with you a new sketch by the very talented Arlana, yes Sweet Sketch Wednesday has a new challenge beginning today and once again Arlana has designed another super fun sketch for you to create with.

I have two cards to share with you using this fun sketch, there's a little story behind this but I will tell you all about that later.

Our sponsor this week is the one and only Digi Stamp Boutique and I have to say I never have any trouble picking one of Sally Ann's images. They all are super cute and adorable. Digi Stamp Boutique is giving one lucky winner this week 10 free digi images..... Will that winner be you?

My first card features Millie singing Carols which you can find here

Here is my second card which features Pirate Josh, (unfortunately he is no longer available at the store, I just purchased him a couple of weeks ago and did not realize when I was making my card he would no longer be available) Sorry, but I just love him and had so much fun creating this little card that I really wanted to share it with you.

I did finish the inside as I made it to be a birthday card, by adding this cute saying.

So, here is a couple of takes on how fun this sketch is to create with, Now it's your turn, but before you run off to start creating, do you want some more inspiration? Then head over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge Blog as the design team's  Fabulous Creations are guaranteed to inspire you..

Thanks for stopping in to visit this morning,
Have a Beautiful Crafty Day!

Hi Jacki I just love both of your cards, Josh is super cute and so is Millie, your design papers are just so so perfect with them. I just love them. I also have Josh as well I bought that set about a year ago having two boys I knew he would come in handy with masculine cards and I have made a few cards with Millie she lovely. I hope your boys are happy back at school seeing all their friends. Take care and have a great weekend.
