Anniversary Post Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #108

 JJT and S Tequila
My Best Friend's Birthday Card she can't drink more than two wines.

This was for an order for a lady and her birthday is today.

Well what a Wednesday, I don't think blogger loves me any more.  It's taken me about 5 hours to try and post this weeks posting over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I hadn't even thought of this posting for my own blog.
Well today is my Anniversary with Sweet Sketch Wednesday, a year ago today I posted my first card  as a Design Team member thanks for a wonderful year girls it's been so much fun.

As I told you last week I was going to SENDZ to have a look around,  there was so much to see by the time I got round to all the stands it was nearly time to go home.  So I quickly went back to some stands I liked and made a few purchases of design papers as they were so cheap and I also bought some more Nestabilities which were a lot cheaper than I had been purchasing them for and I also bought some lovely flowers and Roses and a new guillotine.  So you'll see some of my new purchases in months to come.

Congratulations to all our winners this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday again there were so many amazing cards.

Kathie, why is it that I feel like she looks and I haven't even had the tequila, not fair, lol. Both color combos are beautiful, I can't decide which is my fav. I adore the glitter and sparkle on everything, such a perfect touch. Loved your post(sorry it took so long) but all the info was so much fun to read. You gals have me scared, hope my post will go well. Hope your week is wonderful and loving been on the team with you.

Oh Kathie, how fun to get away and find so many fun craft items for a resonable price. I love it when I go to the Expo for the same reason. I feel so bad that you had such a hard time with Blogger. It hasn't been my friend lately either. I was up late with my post too. Got home late from my trip and then had a long day at work....Oh what we do to have a little fun.
Anyway, you cards and post are fabulous. I love how different each of the cards are even though you have used the same image. I love your choice of papers and colors. Congrats on the one year mark too. It is hard to beleive that it has been that long. You are a wonderful addition to our team and such a blessing to us. thanks so much for all you have done over the course of this year. Have a great week.
Hugs, Nancy

Hello Kathie, Happy One Year Anniversary at SSW! We are so happy to have you on the DT! Sorry about the complications you had this week on posting! However, your post is oh so inviting! Would love to take a vacation around the world! One of these days I might be able to say I am a world traveler! That would be fun! Your JJT cards are so fun this week. I always love your sparkle and glitz! It really makes the image come alive. I actually felt like JJ last Wednesday Morning when I was trying to write my post at 2 A.M. We really did have a great time and it was fun to get so many project finished.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Judi

Hi Kathie!
Loved your post for this week - you do such a great job with the posts and I love the idea you created to show a bit of our states and countries. Your cards are so clever - you do such a good job with these Bugaboo images - I just crack up at them. Love your gorgeous papers on these two and of course your coloring and details with the images are just terrfic. Hope you're having a good week. We're on vacation in Wash DC and just saw the most spectacular fireworks celebrating the U.S. Independence Day.
