Caroling with The Birds


Its been such a long time since I have done anything Blog related. My sister Judi begged me to play along at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Its been quite a year for me here. Just had two surgery's and one was major. So can't do a lot and of course Crafting is always fun. I miss doing the Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  But still keep up on card making.


The other day I had a group of people from my Neighborhood come to my house and do caroling. It was so special. Some were older in the group and some were younger. What was special about it was they didn't realize I had been down from my surgery's so it really made it special and was very needed. There has been so much going on and things that I cant do so this will be my first year with out a Christmas Tree.

I decided to do two old image I used when I had Sweet Sketch Wednesday up and running. The first one Is Caroling with the Birds and the second one is Holiday Mail. To play along this week we were to uses any Sketch that Sally had made for the year. I choose two different Sketches from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Our Sponsor This week is a A Day For Daisies. I have always loved Tammy's images. It was so fun to uses them again. Hope you join in on the fun and play along.

This week our lucky winner will receive:

Happy Birthday for my Sweet Sisters

I have two sisters having a Birthday. They are only about one month apart. I saw the Papertrey Ink Challenge today and thought why not use this challenge for my two card. They want you to use at least three letter from the alphabet using your first or last name. Then you were to follow the chart below.







Paper-Crafting-Alphabet-web






1. Create a new project using the Paper Crafting Alphabet and letters from your first or last name. 
2. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product.  
So I decided to use the first three letters in my Last name which is Patten
P - use pink some where in your project.
A - add a border
T - tie on some twine
I used two Papertrey products.
Petite Places Church Die
Stamp Set Green Thumb form 2007
Spellbinders Pierced Squares
Ek Sucess  Scallop Diamond Border Punch
Lawn Fawn Stamp Scripty Sayings
Tim Holtz Distressed Inks
Various Patterned Papers, Cardstock and Watercolor Paper
Sequins
I reversed my papers on my cards so they would be slightly different. Really had a fun time making this card and doing the challenge. Hope you enjoy my creation. 
Though our three houses may be miles a part. We are always close at heart.
So a big shout out goes to the best Sisters ever!
Happy Birthday
Nancy and Judi
Love Ya,
