Pretty  In Pink

Wedding Day

Good morning everyone oh where has the week gone it really feels that they roll into one, from one week to the next as my days seem to go quicker and quicker.  As Winter is approaching here in New Zealand our days are getting shorter the evenings are getting darker quicker and the temperatures have started to drop.

Well it's Wednesday and that can only mean one thing it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday
and Arlana has another wonderful sketch for us this week.

Sketch # 102 - 43
If you are wondering what the 43 after 102 is because Arlana is recycling some of her sketches occasionally and this was sketch 43 back in March 2010.  These sketches are awesome and far too good to be forgotten about and why reinvent the wheel.  I really love this sketch and I hope you do too!!! 

The design team have been lucky enough to work with images from DigiStamp Boutique, Sally-Ann is our regular monthly sponsor which we all adore and of course she has new images coming out each month and  also retires some of her older images.

This week Sally-Ann from DigiStamp Boutique is offering our lucky winner
6 Digital images of your choice
Wow there are just so many to choose from I can never make up my mind as they are amazing.  So pop over to DigiStamp Boutique and have look for yourself you won't be disappointed.

So now it's time to pop over to the rest of the team at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see what they have produced for you this week using Sally-Ann's images from DigiStamp Boutique.   Don't forget to give the girls a little love and some sweet comments as we love to receive them as well.

Card one is so fun and pretty - love the bright colors! LOVE the red and gold on your wedding card, what a beautiful color combo. Hope it's not getting too cold for you yet. I am hoping the sun will shine on us today, even if just for a bit.

Hello Kathie~Oh how I love the richness of your Love Cakes card! Love that gold and red! The gold frame really sets off the cake! And what a fun heart ribbon that matches your paper so well! Your Bunches of Flowers is so fresh and inviting...a fabulous all occasion card! Have a great day! Hugs!

Hi Kathie! I don't feel winter has ever left us. Mind you, it's a ton of rain instead of snow we're getting, but I had to turn the heat on again here. My poor flowering baskets are asking why I took them from their nice warm greenhouse to my cold, cold front porch!
Your cards are lovely!!! So many wonderful details as well as gorgeous papers and colors! I applaud you for making two every week...I'm too much a slacker!!!! LOL!!! Stay warm.

Hi Kathie, I really did stop by and comment last week...but, when blogger went down, it wiped out alot of my comments and I am sure that is what happened on your end too. I loved your cards last week...as I do the ones you have made this week. I love the gold and red that you have used on your wedding card. It is gorgeous. And the heart ribbon is just perfect with your card. I love every little detail of it. I love how you have framed your cake image. Beautiful, beautiful DP too. I love your first card too. Your paper is so cute and I love the ribbon and lace trim you have used.
Great card this week!!
Hugs, Nancy

Gorgeous cards! Think the flowers are my fav, especially love the papers you've used. Thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog x

Sharon Basel said...

Wow Kathie! That wedding card is so luscious with the gold shimmery paper. Quite stunning with the red accents. Are the hearts on the ribbon a paper punch or part of the ribbon - whatever it is, it's perfect with your papers and theme. And the daisy card is so perky - love those colors and your coloring too. Your cards just always amaze me how perfectly the papers are selected and the embellishments. The work of a true professional!
