Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 31

Good morning all...we had a small amount of snow overnight...nothing to get too excited about and I've yet to find out if the schools will be open today...they had tons of it on the Isle of Wight yesterday and poor hubby got stranded...apparently this is their 1st snowfall in 20 years and boy did they get it bad...he thought he would have to sleep in his car at one point but he finally made it to his hotel at took him nearly 4 hours to travel 4 miles!!! We have no idea if he'll make it off the island today back to the mainland but at least we know he was safely tucked up in his bed last night instead of kipping in his car! Take care if you have snow...especially if you have to make a trip out today!

It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday and we have another fabarooney sketch for you to follow...the DT have created the most amazing cards and I am so lucky to be working with this group of girls...they really rock these sketches each week and I am honoured to be a part of the team! We have a scrummy sponsor this week too Joni at Inktegrity...and I have to say she creates some wonderful digi images and she very kindly gave the DT an image to use...I just love this lil fella...he is called 'Bizzy'...soooo cute!

Hi Donna, I guess my love for snow forgets the havoc it can cause. Glad your husband didn't have to sleep in the car - that would be freezing! Your card, as always is perfectly sculpted into a beautiful masterpiece. I love the blues, of course and gingham is my favorite! I enjoy the subtle embossing you do with your mats - they add to the card in such a delightful way. The image is darling and the sentiment is sweet - love the ribbon. A subtle and clean card with so much pizazz!

Jeannie said...

Be safe in the nasty weather and I'll send you some Arizona sunshine.

Peace & Luv,

Adorable card Donna, the ink distressing adds a lovely softness.
It took me 4 hours to get home from work on Tues (normally 40 mins)...lost my sense of humour about it all an hour and a half in!
