Sugar Bowl *17* Sketch by Judy!

Good Morning!! This week we have a fabulous sketch by the talented Judy with the option of homemade flowers!! This forced me to try out the "lollipop" flowers I have been seeing alot of you make!!

This week we have a special surprise going on! If we get 200 or more people to play along there will be 2 prizes given away. AND they are none other than the adorable new Country Cousins Autumn Set. If you have not seen them yet go take a look ~ they are so cute!!! Anyways here is my card for the sketch: This week-end we went to visit my MIL in NY and we took alot of pics. It was nice as it is the first time since her aneurysm a year ago that she recognized us and remembered the girls name!! So I wanted to make a special card to put a CD in it filled with the pictures! Here is one with the handle I added: (Sorry about the photo it was at night but you can get a better look of the twinkling h20's)Then on the top part of the inside I added an envelope for the CD. Again sorry for the bad picture as I took it early this morning after finishing it up! I have added crackle paint around the handles and the heart as well as around the outside of the circles for my flowers!
Here is one last picture of what it looks like under the flap: I have used all MME papers from the Girl Pack.

Make sure to visit the other DT's blogs as well and see there gorgeous cards!! Marlene's card features one of the stamps that will be given as part of the prize!! It is so cute!!

Thanks for sticking with me this long!! I hope you all have a wonderful day!! As I type this my chance of seeing the shooting stars is over:( We had so many clouds that I didn't even see a regular star!! LOL Oh well there is always next year!
