The blue card is for Sketch 29 and the pink one is for Sketch 30. For Sketch 29's card I used a stamp from Penny Black along with paper by DCWV. For my other card I used the new "Sabrina" patterned paper by Making Memories and the "Smells Like Cake" set from The Cat's Pajamas.

I really liked this color combo on the striped patterned paper (in the background), so I decided to use it for the rest of the card. I think it turned out very cheery! The stamped sentiment is from TCP's "You Say It's Your Birthday" set.

Gramps passed away this morning; his heart failed and the doctors were unable to revive him.
I am lucky to have known him. He was a very special man who had a kind word for everyone, no matter how he was feeling.
I'll miss you, Gramps.

It was a very busy week for me; I worked pretty much full-time to get all the CSAP (testing) materials checked, accounted for, and returned to the CO Dept. of Education. I'm glad that our school is small! LOL! It's a great feeling to have all those test booklets out of the school. And on a "proud mom" note, Iain and I went to an Honor Roll assembly at Nattie's school this morning :) She has worked very hard this year, especially considering what an adjustment it is to switch to middle school.
As a result, I haven't had much time to stamp this week. Later tonight I'm working on the invitations for our school's "Showcase" event next month (like an open house). We decided to invite the families of all the new kindergarteners who'll be starting school in Fall 2009. I came up with a nice, simple design in our school colors (it has to be simple if I'm making 60 of them!) and will hopefully get them finished tomorrow so that on Sunday I can do some stamping for myself!
Next week I just have a 4-day week. We get Friday off, and then all of the following week for Spring Break. Yeah!! I am more than ready for a break after the last few weeks! We'll be going to San Francisco for 4 days. How about you? Are you doing anything special over Spring Break? Have a super weekend - I'll be back with some cards tomorrow!

Here's another card made with the "Think Big" set from Artful INKables. I found the sketch for this card over on Splitcoast Stampers; I felt like taking on a card challenge of some sort :) The patterned paper is from the "Wild Asparagus" line by My Mind's Eye, and the flowers and brads are from my stash :)
I hope you're having a great week!

For my card I used the new "Hearts and Flowers" set from TCP, and the patterned paper is by Rusty Pickle.
I hope you can play along this week! All the details are over on Jen's blog - can't wait to see what you come up with! Enjoy :)

I hope you all had a terrific weekend. Thank you for all the "welcome home" comments! We had a very quiet weekend here; Nattie and Iain both have really bad colds so we took it easy. I got some stamping done; I was playing with the new sets from Artful Inkables - I got 2 cards and 2 non-card projects done! It was so nice to sit, stamp and relax.
Jamie had his swimming lesson on Sunday morning, and he did a fantastic job! He jumped in at the deep end and swam all the way to the other end of the pool. He has overcome a lot of his fears in a short time since we switched to private lessons; it's a much more comfortable situation for him.
Today I'm going back to school. We have a busy couple of weeks ahead with the state testing going on for our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and all the administration that goes along with it :) When I get home today I'll photograph some of the cards I made yesterday so that I can get them posted on here. Have a great week!
