sketch #138 over at  
sweet sketch wednesday
i played with my new sarah kay stamp dh got me for christmas and those beautiful flowers. 
aren't they... just scrumptious!


i've been doing a lil bit of kniting...juz for fun ~ using up some scraps of wool. i made these lil 'comfort dolls'. they're so easy peasy to make and a good way to up cycle those left over balls of wool. so without further adu i'd like you to meet

well ~ that's all the scrappy creative goodies for now. i'm heading outside today for a campfire and some fresh air. we had a wicked storm last night...and we got some cleanup outside to do, too! yikes...there's a whole lotta branches and trees down ~ BUT , we're safe and that's what counts! have a great week everyone!

Melody your card is so adorable. Sorry you don't have a printer. I love digis so I could'nt live with out one. When we first started using them I wondered. But now I am hooked and rarley uses all my stamps. We feel it is important to help out our sponsors since they are so generous to us. Hope you have a sweet day!!! HUGS Arlana@SSW!!!

Melody, so glad you played anyway, I would miss seeing your cards. This is a beautiful Sarah Kay, I have one that I need to ink up. Your bookmark is so pretty, need to do more of those. You made a cute couple out of your scraps. You are a very talented lady.

Another beautiful card Mel ! I love my stamps and ink and use very few digis! Still not 100% sold on them .... printer or not !

Love your little comfort dolls ! They are adorable ( and something my Mother used to make as well ! )
We all need some ME time especially when ink is involved :)
