Modern Sugar Blvd. challenge & Releases

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you're doing well - we had a heck of a thunderstorm roll thru here last night. Whew!

I have to admit that I dropped the new release ball! I completely forgot to post my cards that feature some of the newest digi's from Modern Sugar Blvd. that were released yesterday. And it's also time for a new challenge - that I am on time for.

First let me share one of my cards that I really loved putting together.


No, it's not because I'm anxious for the kids to go back to school. I will very soon be unemployed and am looking forward to spending some of the summer with my kids. I liked this because one of my favorite people, my sister, is a teacher. The chalkboard is new, too, and was really fun to play with. And since there was still some lined notebook paper leftover from the school year, it provided the perfect background dp.

I'll feature my other card on Sunday. So onto the Saturday Challenge brought you by Valerie...



This this a sketch challenge - Valerie creates some awesome sketches for us to use! Her hard work makes for easy inspiration for us DT members. Be sure to visit the MSB blog for all the details. I used Pink Pirouette (I'm really going miss that pink) that I embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, I altered the original digi by cropping the awareness ribbon that is above the doodle-girl's hand so that I could make it bigger and added a little heart in it's place. She's colored with Prismacolor Markers. I then finished the card with big bling!

I have to laugh, it just occurred to me that this entire blog post is dedicated to my sister Theresa... the school teacher... the breast cancer survivor. So Theresa, I applaud you for your accomplishments.

Thanks for visiting me today! See you tomorrow.
