A Sweet Saturday






I'm just home from "Freedom Fest" and Chris Tomlin as well as Starfield in concert. It was great music and lots of fun. Here is a picture of me and my friend Shelley enjoying the outdoor event. Shelley and I live a few miles from each other here in Georgia. In fact, we lived about the same distance apart in Kansas. And we moved here at the same time! Quite the coincidence? Well, "A coincidence is when God performs a miracle and decides to remain anonymous." I love that saying!



Here is a new picture of Shelley's baby boy, Ashton (2 wks old) with my hubby holding him. I love to see Kevin holding a baby. He has large hands and babies look so small in his arms. He LOVES babies. We can't have anymore, but someday we'll be grandparents. Not anytime soon my son and his wife assure me. They, too love babies. So, we'll have to see.
Hubby is still at the concert helping tear down the stage. That's why I am up this late!



On to stamping... I recently found Sara's blog and I am really enjoying her sketches. She's offering a sketch a day until her birthday- 27 sketches in all. There are some cool sketches too. Go visit her blog if you like sketches to get your mojo going. I plan on doing them ALL to help celebrate with her. I started with Sketch #3 and came up with this green card. I have had this quote sitting on my desk waiting to be used and today seemed like the perfect time to use it. Don't you love it? This is my advice to my children.
Details, details- I'll keep it Simple cuz it's LATE! Card base is Gable Green. Quote is from Deja Views 12x12 Vellum "Be Real" and is mounted onto a scrap of (unknown) DP and then onto Garden Green. Scallops are made using decorative scissors, Cuttlebugged dotted Garden Green is next layer and then there is a strip of DP from The Paper Studios- Trick or Treat Circles as well as Garden Green and the same unknown DP scalloped (scissors). "Always" is from Small Script stamped in Garden Green.
Hopefully I'll have a chance to stamp after church tomorrow so I can catch up with Sara! AND I have Beate's sketch to work on too. I better get busy!
I feel like stamping......

Angel, love what you did with the sketch! This is so pretty in all the shades of green. I have been following Sara's sketches too; made a wedding card from a sketch but haven't had time to get it in my gallery. Thanks for sharing this one; monochomatic is a winner with me.
