Sweet Sketch 108 & Bugaboo Stamps.....

Hello & Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

This is a very happy Wednesday for me. I finished work yesterday for 8 whole weeks!! My youngest daughter finishes school today at mid-day. My older daughter has already left Primary school and I am soooooooo looking forward to spending the summer hols with them 
(poor hubby will get a day or two off here & there) 
Lara was away on a school trip last week to the Isle of man, a wee island that sits in the middle of the Irish Sea Between Ireland & the UK. She was away from last Wednesday until Sunday morning. We missed her terribly, especially her little sister. Of course Lara had a blast, they went Orienteering, wall climbing, gorge walking, kayaking, they built rafts, abseiled down a 50ft tree & so much more. When she came home on Sunday morning she was exhausted & in need of a hot bath!! and although we really missed her I'm so happy she had the confidence to be away from home, such a fantastic experience for her.
Anyway on to this weeks challenge. 
1st up we have another fab sketch from Arlana

next is our wonderful sponsor this week, one of my favourites...

Jodi is offering our Grand Prize winner 
7 Digi Stamps to the value of $21

I used Waltzingmouse Dainty Dollies for both cards. I did both cards the same only in different colours & different sentiments.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 107 & Amber Ink....

Good Morning!
It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday time again (doesn't time fly)
My eldest daughter left Primary School last week. I can't believe how quickly that time has gone by.
They finished school with a Leaving Ceremony, it was lovely. Lara & a few others played a
lovely piece on their clarinets. I had a big lump in my throat, she really did us proud. The school choir also sang for us & at the end 96 P7 pupils entertained us with a wee melody of dances to songs that where probably hits way before any of them were born lol!

My lovely daughter.
Below is my card for this week's challenge! 

The cute little image is from Amber ink our fab sponsor this week

The Grand prize winner this week will receive a 
$15 gift certificate. 
I had a tough time choosing my image, they are all adorable. You can check out Amber ink's images here.

I wanted my wee bunnies to be different so I paper pieced them in this fab dotty digi paper from 
Stamp Fairy

Here is the sketch you'll need to follow this week

and for all the rules & a gorgeous line up of cards from the 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday DT ladies to get your creative juices flowing, have a looky here.

Waltzingmouse CASE Comp...

Below is my card for the Waltzingmouse CASE Comp.

I was really inspired by the card that Julie Aston made using the Free Spirit - Boy set,
Check it out here.

My hubby is a BMXer & Father's Day is next weekend here in the UK, so I thought this card would be perfect for him from our girlies.

I'm also entering this card in this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
