Lucky Delivery

  Guess what? It's 112 days to go until Christmas and it only feels like yesterday.  This time last year I was getting ready to go to Argentina and Chile and I just can't believe that's another year has past by so quickly.

Here in New Zealand on Sunday it's Father's Day and my hubby will be getting his John Deere Tractor card I made him a few weeks ago from my boys and I still have to make my own.

As I promised you a before and after photo of Bertha now she's had her make over don't forget she's at lease 32 years old.

Before her make over  
 After her make over she's a new woman and running like new.

Today is Wednesday which means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and we have a new sketch for you.  Firstly congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards from last week.

Sketch #026

 This sketch is really easy so I hope to see heaps of entries this week.

Here's my card using Lucky Delivery.

This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies

A Day For Daisies began as a small token to a constant need to create. Pairing a love of whimsical illustration, with a tidy graphic design background, Tammy S Thompson, produced her first stamp designs, introducing irresistibly sweet stamps to crafters around the globe. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful world around us, she strives to express the happiness and gratitude she feels in each stamp design she creates.
Presently, A Day For Daisies has grown to over 3,000 Digital Stamps with a quickly expanding line of Best Loved Clear Polymer. A Day For Daisies has been published and awarded over the years for innovative and unique designs created to inspire the crafting community. With a whole team behind her now, she remains passionate about illustration, obsessed with quality, and dedicated to her customers. A Day For Daisies thanks you for your ideas, comments, and creativity!

What a fantastic card, the blues just pop off the card. Such a pretty color combo.
Bertha looks lovely, she looks brand new! Wonder if her DR can do that to me! LOL, I could use some polishing and spiffying, a tuck here and a overhaul there. What a great present. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Heide

Michelle said...

(laughing) I love what Heide said! If you are going to overhaul someone, I'm your girl. I could use a tuck too! Bertha is gorgeous! Nicely done ... my Hubby just mentioned that HE wouldn't mind having a tractor too. (Sigh) We have no need of one. Your card is stunning. Love the soft orange and blues together. Kathie, your work is amazing!

Kathie, your card is stunning this week. I love your coloring and your colors scheme is gorgeous. Love the make over on Bertha...She really looks nice and new. I bet your husband is really proud of her. I know what you mean by the fact that you can't believe that Christmas is almost here again. I feel that two years went by me in a blink of an eye. Not just one.. Have a nice weekend.
Hugs, Nancy
