i{heart} sketches!

I know I'm supposed to be getting rest but how is stamping going to tire me out? LOL! Yesterday both Jen and Lauren posted their Saturday sketches. Today I decided to head downstairs and gather some supplies and get at it!!

Be sure to check out Lauren's sketch HERE.

My friend, Michelle, had sent me this pig stamp from GinaK a little bit ago. This was the first time it's seen ink. I think this cute little ribbon is some that I picked up at Walmart some time ago. The little flower charm is one that Lauren sent to me last week!! Wow they are heavy...haha! Thanks again Lauren for all the goodies ;)

I pulled out my Watercolour Crayons to colour the pig in. I love using those things! Chloe even arranged them for me. They had all gotten mixed up. She's such a good kid eh?!


Jen from i{heart}2stamp always has great sketches too. I knew I wanted to use Embrace Life and the Ginger Blossom DP. I'm so loving those together!! Aren't you?

I have tons of Build A Brads. Stocked up on them awhile ago. Maybe I over did it on this card...LOL

I left off a sentiment for now. I will stamp something when the time comes.

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes. I haven't felt this awful in a long time. I know it'll get better. I'm staying put this week so I should have tons of stamping time ;)
