Sending my Love......

Good Morning!
Today is my first challenge as guest DT over at
the Teddy Bo Challenge and they even let me choose
the challenge! I have gone with a sketch ~ I love sketches
and hope you enjoy working with this one!
Here is my take on it:

I just had to go all springy with this one. The weather here
has been beautiful and I just know that spring is around the
corner!  I also had to do shabby chic as well with some
kraft thrown in there.

I needed to make my niece, who we see once a year if
we are lucky, a card. This TeddyBea image was perfect!

Papers: Prima ~ Sparkling Spring
Inks ~ distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories: Vintage Seam Binding, pearl hearts, flowers ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace ~ JoAnn Fabrics, button and twine ~ PTI
Image ~ Teddy Bo & CO. Circle sentiment ~ Catslife Press

Well that is it for today!!  My parents are off to visit my brothers
in Arizona tomorrow. We had such a beautiful time!
This week-end we went to Austin and San Antonio which is
so beautiful! I loved the Riverwalk! If I remember I will
post some pictures! It is so pretty!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see all
your creations with the sketch!
Have a great day!
