Thought for the day -

Good Morning!!  Are you ready for another week? My overtime has been cancelled until further notice- which probably means next week, haha. So I plan on getting some cards made this week.
I promised Jordan I would reduce my time on the computer this week. I've spent the last week building a new blog for Sunshine and Giggles and he feels neglected.  So this week we're going to spend our evenings together.

Today is Sunshine Monday brought to you by Sunshine & Giggles Stamps. As I mentioned we now have a new blog so be sure to stop by for a visit.  I am using the Little Guardian Angel stamp for this weeks card and it is also covering 2 challenges.  The first challenge is for Stamp Something which offers a recipe challenge- 2 papers, 1 ribbon and 3 embellishments. It is also part of the Stamp Something for Jaimie card drive.  This is such a tragic story.  Jaimie is an eleven year old New Hampshire girl who survived a break in in her home.  She was brutally attacked by 4 knife wielding teenage boys and her mother was murdered. Be sure to check out the Stamp Something for Jaimie blog for further information on where to send your card.

My second challenge covered is a sketch challenge- don't think I can make a card anymore without a sketch, haha. Sketch Saturday provided this awesome sketch this week!

This sketch works just perfectly with the recipe, doesn't it!

It's a bit hard to tell in this picture but I really did use 2 dp's. They are from Graphis 45, from the bride to baby line. I just love the soft colors in these papers.

I used gold stickles on her halo and iced blue stickles on her wings. All cardstock is from Stampin Up and the image was colored with my copics.  I used my MS laced scallop punch and the little roses are from Prima.  Be sure to check out what the Sunshine Girls have in store for you.

I think that situation in NH and the devastating loss of Jaime's mother is just horrible! How sweet of you to join the drive. You did a beautiful job with the sketch!
