It was so much fun having my sister come to visit. I worked on coloring some of my images for my cards this next month and Nancy did the same and made a card. We always have so much fun together. But we did miss Judi and wished she could have been here too. We love our sister time and we are all very close.

This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we are being sponsored by Tiddlyinks. I am truly loving their sweet images. Every month they come out with new images. I knew the moment I saw this cowgirl that I had to have her. She was just so much fun to create with. I fell in love with the paper I bought just for this card. I decided to use SWEET as my sentiment because I think she is very sweet.

My next image is the castle. Now when I saw the frog and the castle I knew immediately what I wanted to do and that was put them together. The fun thing about digis is that you can get any size you would like. Be sure to check out Tiddlyinks and their fabulously sweet digis.

The girls have some darling cards over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I hope you will bug on over and check them out. Thanks for stopping by and will see you again next week.


  1. Arlana, It was so fun to see your cards for real. They are just adorable! You know how much I love the cowgirl card. And your castle is super cute too! Your papers and coloring are perfect for both cards! Thanks for all you do! It was wonderful being with your this past week. Lov ya! Nancy

  2. Arlana, I love your little Annie Oakley. That star paper and brad is such a perfect embellishment. You castle and frog is just cute as can be. So clever to use two images! I'm so glad you and Nancy had such a good time together. Wish I could have been there with both of you. Talk with you in the morning.

  3. Awh how sweet are the three of ye! I've got my Mam into it and my sister is slowly coming around to it. Your cards are fantastic as always. I always forget I can combine digis, must make a mental note. Thanks for another fab sketch!

  6. Hi Arlana, I just love both of your cards, those images are super cute and I adore the papers you have used. Sometimes I see some paper and I just know before hand what I'll make with it, it's so exciting.
    So glad that you and Nancy had a great time together, I'm looking forward to going to Australia next week because as of the 13th October the four of us girls will be together our two sister in laws and our two brothers plus 3 out of 4 of the brother in laws and one brother will be in NZ and isn't coming over what a party for my sisters 60th birthday. It will be so good as we all haven't been together for 9 years when our Mum died. One of my sisters hasn't met my 9 year old son, he was born 10 days after mum died. So it's going to be awesome to be together again doesn't happen enough now days as everyone is so busy with their own families.
    Thanks for another wonderful sketch this week.
