Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #121

Sleepy Time Bear

Good morning to a wonderful warm Wednesday morning from New Zealand.  Well Spring is really here the warm weather is upon us, we've started daylight savings so our evenings are longer so that's all positive.  On  the negative side we are still getting the spring rain and our evenings and mornings are still very crisp and fresh.

Our New Zealand All Blacks haven't lost a game and hopefully won't loose a game in the Rugby World Cup. It's lovely having so many special visitors to New Zealand and the atmosphere is electrifying a real buzz especially when Ireland beat Australia in one of the pool games.  The All Blacks beat France last Saturday night which was one amazing game to watch.  England, Canada, and the American team are all doing well in their Pools.  I can't wait for the quarter, semi and the final hopefully our All Blacks will be in that final.

Today is Wednesday and that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday congratulations to our winner this week and our top 3, awesome work and there is just so much creativity our there it's amazing.

Wow awesome that the "All Blacks" haven't lost a game. I bet your DH and boys are loving that. We are just heading into fall. It has been so pleasant here. I am dreading winter. Although, it never gets to cold here in Arizona. We do get snow but not a lot. Kathie, your baby card is so sweet. I have alway loved the pale blue and pink together. It gives your card such a softness. i love the added heart embellishment. They are so cute. Your card is adorable. Enjoy your spring weather.
Love and hugs,

Thanks Kathie for your lovely comment and sweet story. I think we get confused as chidren..I used to pray for snow when young...my Christmas list always had snow on it, and my Dad bought home a biscuit tin of snow once, when he was away working, have only touched snow once in my life and would love to be in a real snow flurry...the chances of that happening in Napier are pretty slim.
Your card is gorgeous, love the pastels, just so pretty. Very cute image.Love the puffy hearts...sorry I'm not into rugby...but go the All Blacks..lol..


Jeannie said...

This is so absolutely adorable and I love that you colored the hearts to match - you rock girl! You made me laugh with your comment that it was 91 here but that actually feels good right now. We're just finally getting past the triple digits here! I'm so ready for a less than triple digit electric bill too!

Have a great week!

Peace & Luv,

Hey there, aren't you the shimmery, soft, sparkly one this week. Love those little sparkles in his hat and the pompom....wasn't this the most fun to work with? Your card is beautiful. Now to your comment on my blog, you need to get your priorities straightened out and in a house that size demand your due,lol. Rick is so glad I have a space, as to hear him tell it, I have been talking about my own place for years and years and years! I love my room, it makes me happy. Sometimes I just curl up on the daybed with a book and my cats and I am happy then as well as when I am crafting. I am glad everyone seemed to enjoy seeing my space and I look forward to seeing anyone else's that wants to post theirs. Have a wonderful week and enjoy your spring. Our leaves are turning some and some are already falling.
Hugs, Patti

Sharon Basel said...

Kathie this is just the cutest and sweetest card. You've picked the perfect combination of papers, colors and embellishments that make this outstanding. Love the shimmer here and there - that gives it that magical touch. Enjoy your spring - Fall is here in Michigan and we're getting really chilly nights and a few days have been more like late November here. This week is a little better in terms of temps though - thank goodness.
Sharon :)
