Sweet Sketch Wednesday #69

Good Morning everyone!  Happy Wednesday to you.  Today's post is a little sad for me, this is my final post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  My decision to step down from the design team was a difficult one to make but it was unfair for me to stay when I a unable to fulfill all my requirements.  So with this post, I want to thank Arlana for having given me the opportunity to be on this incredible design team for the past 6 months or so.  I want to say to the design team that you are all fabulous, it's been a joy to work with you and you will continually inspire me.

So here's the sketch Arlana gave us to work with....


And here's what I did with it....


Our sponsor this week is Sweet n Sassy Stamps and the prize is $10 gift certificate.  I used the Noah's Ark set.  I had often wondered why Noah's Ark was so popular amongst baby themes.  Well, it finally hit me.  The time of the ark was being obedient to God but it was also a time for new life.  That's what babies are right.  New life.  And since I actually know someone that just had a baby, I get to send it him and his wife.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana,
Paper:  Queen's Ink
Copics:  B000, B02, B05, E34, E37, E57, G05, RV10, W-3, Y15, Y17, YG03, YR16
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots embossing folder
Embellishments:  button (my stash), satin ribbon (Offray), stitched ribbon (SU), white embroidery thread

Now head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for more inspiration and to find out how to play.  Have a sweet Wednesday!

Hi Mel, just want to let you know how much you are going to be missed off the Design Team. I want to wish you the very best. I will try to get over to your challenge site and play along. I know I haven't in a while. Mostly because my life has been really crazy. I love your Noah's Ark. I think this is the sweetest image. It is one of the ones I got too. I had alot of fun coloring it up. It is so fun to see how different each one of us did it. Yours turned out super cute! Once again, wish you the very best and don't forget to stop by and see us once in awhile.
