Peekaboo ;o)


I see you :o) Happy Wednesday!!!! I hope your week has been treating you well thus far. Today's card was whipped up using Tracy's simply sweet sketch at Eat, Sleep, Stamp. I am barely eeking it in, but it has been a while since I have played along with her wonderful sketch challenge...so I had to get busy!! The sad part is...the sketch has been sitting on my desk for days...talk about waiting til the very last minute!


Today's card features the darling stamp "Secret Garden Peeker" by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamp Co. Isn't she a cutie? I adore how it captures the inquisitiveness of children. I remember peeking around corners looking for my next big adventure...are there dinosaurs behind the fence?...or maybe a hidden treasure just waiting to be found? It doesn't seem like that long ago when me and my sons would go on our adventure walks...we would write stories of all the cool things we encountered on our journey through the park or the woods or even our neighborhood. It always amazed me at how incredibly fun their imaginations were...I think I am going to pull those stories out and read them again. :o) How I wish they were still little....I suppose that's why God created grandchildren. :o)


Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me! I hope your Wednesday is absolutely, positively WONDERFUL!!! And before I leave...if you haven't done so already...there are two chances to win some AWESOME Sylvia Zet for SCACD BLOG CANDY at the Store Blog....and time is quickly running out!!! If you love Sylvia Zet's beautiful artistry, you are not going to want to miss a chance to win what Susana has up for grabs!!! Good luck!!!!

Blessing and Hugs,
Carolyn

Yea Carolyn you made it!!! So glad you had a chance to play along this week. And once again proof positive that everything works well with kraft card stock. Love the orange with it. It really pops.

Lovely! What a little sweetie! Love, love, love, that ribbon! I have already used up a bunch of my trimmings that Heather got me from your store! You will be seeing them soon! I will have to restock my supply if I don't slow down and save some of it! LOL! It is funny because I usually hoard my pretty stuff, I just pet it and tell it is pretty and put it back! I know I am a weird-o!
