It's Spring Break!

We are so excited that both sets of Grandparents will be coming to visit us this week! Yay!! My In-laws will be here this evening and later in the week it will be my parents' turn.

Normally I share things that I have made here, but I have an exception today....
My BFF made me this adorable memo board and I wanted to post a picture of it. It is just so cute and I love the way it helps me clear some of my favorite pictures off of my fridge. Thanks, Rebecca :)
Next, I have a couple of cards that were inspired by Heidi's sketch for Caardvarks.

This first one looks very much like the sketch.

And this next one is kind of a vague take on the sketch, but I had the papers out and just had to make another ;)
Supplies: (card 1)Core'dinations CS, Paper Salon PP, Chatterboxfelt flower, Cornish Heritage farms sentiment stamp and May Arts ribbon. (card 2) same CS, PP, stamps as above. Also used Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Creative Impressions ribbon and K & Co. Pearls.

And, last, here is my card for Sketch This!

I always LOVE working with Janelle's sketches! This one was no exception.
Supplies: American Crafts CS, Collage Press PP, Every Jot and Tittle (etsy) tag, Crate paper rub on, Martha Stewart punch and K & Co. pearls.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week...hope it's sunny where you are :)

What a sweet gift from your friend! Love all of your cards! Can't pick a favorite, they're all beautiful. And I love the little pearls added to the butterflies....I'm a little addicted to pearls at the moment:)
