"THANKS" Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #90


Here it is another wonderful Wednesday and Wednesdy means Sweet Sketch Wednesday, wow where did last week go?  My days seem to intertwine with each other and before you know it another week has gone.
This weekend went really quickly both of my boys played cricket and then very early on Sunday morning they took part in a Triathlon so we had a very busy weekend.

This week we had a wonderful array of cards, they were totally amazing.  Congratulations to all our winners and thanks so much for following and sharing your cards with us at

I have been worried about you, but I did some research about the earthquake and noticed you are a fair bit away from that area.

Loving the card - the glossy dots are perfect for the little bug.

I hope all is well with you and your family with the earthquake and after shocks in New Zealand. I couldn't remember what part of the country you lived in.

Your ladybug is the sweetest Kathie!!! Everything screams sunshine and warmth to me (got dumped with a foot of snow Monday, a normal 30 minute ride home took 3 1/2 hrs!!!). Have a wonderful week.

Hi Kathie, hope you and your family are all safe. This is a lovely card - I love the glass finish on your bug, it looks fab. I also love that the card is so bright and cheerful, that makes a brilliant thank you card! Take care. Wedgie xxx

I am soo glad you and your family are ok. Judi, Arlana and I have really been worried about you. I feel so bad that there has been so much loss of life.
Kathie, your card really made me smile today. It was a nice breathe of sunshine. I love ladybugs anyway. When one of my daughters was growing up, that is what her dad called her. Since then she has ladybugs everywhere in her kitchen. So, this made me think of her today. She is one sweet daughter.

Kathie, I so enjoyed your emails today. Thanks for keeping in touch! Your card this week couldn't be cuter. I love the glossy dots on your ladybug. It really adds some nice deminsion. And what a cute ladybug on that leaf. So glad you are safe. Have a great week!

Arlana said...

Kathie I am so gald that your are okay. We were so worried. Your lady bug just brighten things up a bit. I love the fun colors that you used and the way you colored up your lady bug along with the fun embelishment. Have a sweet week. Arlana

Genevieve said...

Hi Kathie!
We pick a lot of the same images don't we?! We're kindred spirits even though at opposite ends of the earth. I've been thinking about you a lot because of the earthquake in NZ. I do hope it's far from you and anyone you know.

This card is darling. I love how your flower in the image and the embellishment are similar - really makes this cohesive. And that ladybug on the leaf is a cute touch. Love the enameled dots on the ladybug too. Very cute indeed!

Absolutely adorable! This litle bug just makes me smile! Love the glossy dots on his shell.

Glad to know you weren't effected by the horrible diaster over there.
Take care!
