Happy Saturday!

Hey there friends! Happy Saturday to you! It's been a while since my last post, and I have two fun pieces of news to share with you...first off, my sweet baby boy was born on May 15th, he came via C-section and thankfully everything went as planned. He is a beautiful boy...I'll add some photos of him in the coming days. His name is Graham Bruce and is he is heavenly! I am so in love with him...it is some kind of wonderful having a sweet wee one in our house!
 
My second piece of news is another fun one...I am the "Headliner" over at one of my favorite spots, Retro Sketches for the month of June! I am super excited to be doing so! I love Retro Sketches and use them all the time, I was so flattered when I got the email from Arielle!! So, here is the sketch for this week, it is a good one! And be sure to check out the blog, the girls did some great cards, as usual!! Lots of inspiration!

 

I used my Fanciful Feathers dies from W+9 for the card. I used distress inks to color them, with a ink blending tool. Each feather was stamped with a larger stamp for fun detail. The turquoise and green feathers were stamped with images from Lawn Fawn, and the pink one was stamped with a Hero Arts background stamp. Then all were embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder. My sentiment is from the Fanciful Feathers stamp set.
 
I have been so blessed by so many friends the past few weeks, my thank you card stash has been diminished to nothing! So, the next few weeks I'll have a bundle of them to share, as I get cards marked off my list that need to get into the mail!
 
Thanks a bundle for stopping by today! I'll see you soon!!
