CTS #183

Good morning, everyone!!  I hope you are having a great week!  We are having a great one.  Hanging out with friends on Monday and Tuesday, made the boys super excited.  We did tons of fun stuff including a nice 2 mile walk before playing at the park.  Of course, you would have thought I was killing all of the children making them walk SO far.  Ha ha!  I think they had a little bit of fun though.  There are lots of bridges to throw rocks from along the trail and it's a gorgeous trail.

It looks horrible, doesn't it?  Ha ha ha!  Kids!  The best part was that I took them to get ice cream after since I heard so many, "I'm HOT!" complaints.  Well, after ice cream, I got to hear, "I'm freezing" and, "Can you get goosebumps on your face?  I think I have them."  It was quite a trip.  ;)

Well, I had a great time with the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch but I was so busy, I forgot to photograph it.  So, I did a really quick picture right before typing up this post.  I hope it does the card justice.  Some weeks, right?  Here's my card:

I used the new Lil' Inker Designs Quilted Stitched Spirals Cover Up Die to create texture on my card front before adding a layer of watercolor paper cut with Silly Stitched Die Set.  I painted on my three stripes using Distress Ink then inked up my The Little Things Stamps with an ombre inkpad from Hero Arts before cutting the bird out using The Little Things Dies.  I added my bird and branch to the water colored panel and finished it off with a sentiment from The Little Things Stamps.  I went REALLY literal with this sketch and I hope you like it!

Thanks for checking out my card and I hope to see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!  Here are the stamps and dies I used on this card:
