Some Grand News!

(No I am not going to be a grandmother...)
I am so excited today to be able to share that I have been asked by the amazing Jen Shults to be a Guest Designer for The Deconstructed Sketch for the summer! I love her sketches, and am thrilled to be working with an awesome team!!

Every Thursday there is a new fun sketch! Here is this week's:
I love Jen's Sketches! It makes the rest of the card go together easily, as the sketch is the hardest part, I think! I used Hambo Stamps' Floating Pig (available as a digi with flowers as well) and Just Pigcause for my images.  I stamped using  Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the pig with Copic markers. I pieced the balloon.  Pink is my favorite color, so my clouds had to be pink :)

My trio of Baker's Twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I wanted to tie (haha!) all the colors from the card together, so used Cotton Candy, Aqua, and Green Apple from the Assortment here. There is a great pre-Mother's Day Sale going on at RRR NOW!

Lots of fun stuff happening at Hambo Stamps this week, so be sure to check out the Hambo Hoedown before tomorrow! A blog hop and a Design Team call have deadlines coming soon!

The Deconstructed Sketch girls have some terrific samples to show, so be sure to have a visit at their blogs too!
