Saturday Sketch

It's Saturday and boy are we glad the weekend is here. I got to stamp with my Mom yesterday while the kiddos were napping and I have 2 creations from myself and one from my Mom to share with you. These are all using Lauren Meader's Saturday sketch. The first is my first time using Pink Cat's Studio's new set Lily and Billy Sweathearts. This card took me a lot longer to make than most of my cards. It has a ton of "bling". I just love this set! Aren't Lily and Billy too cute!
Here is my Mom's card. She used her new cupcake set from Maya Road that she got for her birthday last weekend. The paper is from Papertrey, Rasberry Fiz. She added some bling too to both of the hearts on the side and to the cupcake heart topper!
Last but not least! I love my new SU set called Cheers to You. I paired it with Pinch Proof, also from SU. I've been wanting this set for a while now. My husband and I are both engineers and where we went to school in Rolla, MO, St. Patrick's Day was a HUGE party. They painted the streets green, served green beer, had a St. Pat's Board, and the list goes on and on. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Engineers so that is how this tradition started. I love St. Patrick day cards. Can you see the green beer in the mug? One time my husband and I went to this bar during St. Pats (we got 2 days off of college for this holiday!) and we brought our own food coloring because we didn't think this bar would have any. Needless to say, we got a new beer since we dumped almost the whole thing of food coloring in it! Here's my first St. Pat's card for the year! CHEERS TO YOU!

Be sure to check out the other gals cards too. Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful ideas I wouldn't have thought of switching to landscape. Keep up the good work TFS.

Wow...your cards are awesome! I love the soft pink color scheme on the Lily and Billy card :O) So pretty! I really need to invest in some stamps that require coloring...they always make the cutest cards :O)

I LOVE the St Patrick's Day card also! What a cute idea making the sentiment and the beer mug the "flower" embellishments. Looks like your creative juices are definitely flowing!!

Hope Ava is feeling better so that her and Ethan don't have to be separated. Tell your mom her card is fabulous as well!

Have a great weekend, Alicia.
