Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge and RAK giveaway

You know that something good often comes from something bad, right?

Well, I feel bad for my daughter and son-in-law because they both came down with the flu at the same time. But, are you ready for the "something good"? I've got to spoil my grandkids for two nights in a row!!

Don't get me wrong, I would never wish anyone to get the flu, just sayin' I've enjoyed having the kids over.

Are you ready for a new challenge?

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is a sketch challenge!

For my card I chose a couple of cute bunny cut files from Silhouette Studio to make a sweet little Easter card.


The pattern paper is by Echo Park and the little sentiment is from paper by Doodlebug.




Supplies used: card stock - white, 2 shades of grey, 2 shades of pink;  patterned papers by Echo Park and Doodlebug; cut file from Silhouette Studio Design store; Enamel dot from Doodlebug

Love your cute polar bear card!
Worst winter experience was when my daughter was little, about 5 years old. We had taken a winter vacation to go to the Lake Tahoe area from the central coast of CA where we lived. It was an 8+ hour drive for us to get to my husband's family cabin. Just as we arrived, our daughter threw up. It went downhill from there, as the bug took a turn with each one of us. We didn't feel well enough to drive home and had to extend our stay there. It was cold and we had snow to deal with, which we were't used to. All in all, a pretty miserable vacation! Had a hard trip home when we did feel well enough to travel, because our ears were so congested that it was painful to change elevation on the way down the mountain!

Congrats to Denise! If you email me your address I will mail your gift to you.

I have decided to continue with this RAK prize giveaway through the month of March!

I just love the way this little bunny is balancing a couple of Easter eggs on his nose.


I also used a Silhouette Design store cut file for the pinking shear edge mat I cut from pink gingham pattern paper.

The cute little chipboard flowers and the sentiment are chipboard stickers by Echo Park.

For my card, both the polar bear and the snowflakes are die cuts from a recent Spellbinders card kit I received.


The floating iceberg is a cut file from Silhouette Studio.

This is beautiful! I love the sequin accents. My recent RAK is sending a card to my plumber who came to my house on Friday with sunglasses on and said he wouldn't take them off because his dog died the night before. I don't even know him but I sent a card to the company attn to him.

Congrats to Meghan! If you email me your address I will mail your gift to you.
