Sketch Saturday # 111

Happy Saturday! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope all is well with you all!  We had a tremendous rain and thunder storm yesterday that lasted for hours! The kiddies and I had gone into the city to shop and were just driving home when the storm hit. OMGosh! It was as dark as night and then the rain was coming down so heavily, I couldn’t see the highway at all…just the hint of tail-lights of the car in front of me. Luckily there was a service station not too far along  and I pulled in (me and about 15 other cars) and waited until the storm abated. The kids thought it was “AWESOME” and they were right……as long as you weren’t trying to drive! LOL! What crazy weather we are having!

Today I have my card for Sketch Saturday to show you. Once again, Jo has come up with a fabulous sketch. I had to tweek it here and there to fit my image. The stamp was a RAK from a lovely friend and was so much fun to color up!

I colored her up to match the gorgeous colors in my DP which is Basic Grey’s Green at Heart. Such gorgeous, lush colors in this pack. The sentiment is by Stampin’ Up as is the satine ribbon. The pretty little oval slider is from Cute Cards and Stamps. I just love the look it gives to the card. I added a little glossy accents to the glass and pitcher although I don’t think you really see the effect in the picture.

I hope you can join us this week for our challenge. We are being sponsored by one of our regular sponsors: Simon Says Stamp! You have the chance to win a very generous gift certificate!

I also want to give a big thank-you to all of you who are visiting and leaving such wonderful and kind comments! I so appreciate them and they motivate me to keep up my little blog. I haven’t had much time lately to visit your blogs but I hope to catch up at some point! My kids seem to be permanently attached to me these days!

Hi Jeanette,

What a lovely card, the colors are indeed fabulous! just bought this wonderful stamp myself as well, so it's a lovely inspiration to see what you can do with it!
Yes, I'm watching the heavy rain from my window at the moment, yesterday evening it was even scary! Wow, lightning going crazy all the time and rain was coming down in buckets!!! Good thing your kids weren't scared at all and with them laughing, you probably kept the spirits up as well, right!
A lovely day to you!

Hugs, Wendy
