I've been out of town for nearly three weeks which is why I've been a little quiet on the blog. Funny how my online life became really slow, but in real life, its been very busy! Our (Sarah's too!) other sister recently had a little baby girl and I was able to go and spend a few weeks with her and my adorable nephews. It was a nice break and who can complain about spending time with a precious newborn? :-)
I made this card for Sassy Lil Card Sketches Feb 21st sketch, which was a week ago, I know, but I've been running a little behind with my sketches as life has been a little busy. I've got some exciting things to share with you in the next few days. I'd also encourage you to check out the Sassy Lil Card Sketches blog, there is so much fun stuff!
There is still time to play along and be eligible for the awesome Cosmo Cricket prize!

I have to admit that I was pretty excited when I received this month's kit from Apron Strings. It was full of gorgeous supplies from three of my favorite companies - Echo Park, My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon.
I've had these photos of Ellie's first experience feeding herself for a while and I am really glad that I held onto them. I think they work really well with the colors and theme from October Afternoon's "Modern Homemaker" line, and they fit perfectly into this week's GYSO sketch.
I love it when everything comes together so easily.

The Sassy Lil' Sketches Card blog is now online and I am so excited to be part of this wonderful team. Its been a few months in the creating, but I hope you agree, the waiting was certainly worth it. The ladies at SLS have put together some fantastic sketches, an amazing design team, and (heres the best part) awesome prizes. For our first month one lucky winner will go home with a prize package from Cosmo Cricket!
Be sure to head over to the SLS card blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with our first sketch, and while you are at it, maybe you should check out the blogs from the other ladies on the team too!

Technically today is my 'day off'. I try to make Wednesdays the day that I catch up on all sorts of things that I had to do, and usually this involves a fair bit of cutting, inking, and generally getting all sticky. Today was no exception, but the projects I was working on today I can't share with you yet. Oh theres exciting things coming up on the Polka Dot Door blog, be sure to check back soon for what it might be!
In the meantime, I do have a card to share with you. I made it for one of my design teams, but ended up making a second card too, so this one didn't actually get used for inspiration on the site, but I'm hoping maybe someone out there can get some mojo from my attempts.

I do not often use digital stamps on my card, but this week I just had to play along with the adorable images that Soft Pencil Design Studio provided the entire DT with. It was hard to narrow it down to just one (and if you are the lucky winner at ICS this week I know you are going to love your prize package!) but the cow won out. The sketch we had to use this week was very versatile and I love how this simple little card turned out. I haven't decided 'Moo" I am going to give it to, but I'm sure most of my little people especially would appreciate this adorable valentine.
If you haven't already, hurry over to the ICS blog and take a peak at all the fun inspriation this week from the DT. While you are at it, maybe look in at Soft Pencil Design Studio's, they will be giving 5 images to the winner of this weeks sketch! Be sure to check back often because they will be releasing a new line of stamps in March, I can't wait to see what it will be! I hope you will play along with ICS for their 100th sketch!
