Thought for the day -

Good morning! Well it's back to the daily grind...ugh!  It was a great weekend while it lasted but they never last...they go by in a shot and then the weeks seem to drag.  I think I am ready for retirement, haha, just wish my husband would agree!

My card today is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday and they provided a really good sketch but now that I look at my card I notice I missed  a detail...oops.  I also changed it up a little and added a sentiment.  So much for following the sketch but I think you can still see it, lol.

Since SKW is being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps I thought it only fitting to use one of my bugaboos.  This is not to say I want to be ruled out from the running....I can't get enough of their images!

Isn't this the cutest little man!  I love this image and is perfect for a thank you.  So can you see what I missed?!  I wanted to keep this clean & simple- that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, lol.  All my dp is from October Afternoon.  I just love their papers!  My image was colored with prismacolor pencils and the blue and green is color box chalk inks.  The cardstock & ribbon is from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from KLM Digistamps and is actually a clear stamp. I cut the sentiment using my Stampin Up window punch and finished it with green brads.
