Sketch Saturday Week #63

Sketch Saturdays - Page 116

Happy Saturday! I hope yours is fun-filled. I think Summer-time flies by because there are just so many events and places to go visit! Yesterday we went to La Ronde which is an amusement park. We had such a great time. What I enjoyed the most was seeing the kids having such a blast. The little one is fearless! He wanted to try everything! Thank goodness he is reasonable and understood that if he wasn’t taller than the red line posted by the ride, he couldn’t go on! Now my husband and I are such a perfect match. I don’t mind any of the rides that spin but vertical drops are not for me. Hubby is the opposite so the kids always have one of us!

Here is my card for this week’s Sketch Saturday. I actually gathered up some courage and did a little sewing on this one. I machine sewed the borders and I did the little cross-stitching by hand.

  • Stamps: Magnolia
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey Bittersweet
  • Coloring; Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Papertrey buttons

Thanks for swinging by today. If you haven’t been, check out the SS blog to see my DT sisters’ fantastic creations and check out the prize by Simon Says Stamps!
