Hope your Thursday was a good one!  Went to the movies this afternoon, nice and cool inside.  Today's card is an image by Phindy's Place digital images.  The challenge is a color challenge this week, use the color blue. The sketch is from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC63).
This sketch was fun to work with as always, thanks Priscilla!

I fell in love with this adorable image when I did some shopping over at Phindy's Place from a win last week on their challenge blog, thanks Phindy!  Our furry friends are always curious when a new baby enters their world.  The papers are from Me and My Big Ideas, Boy and Nana's Kids by DCWV.  The scalloped punch is from EK Success and the eyelet punch is Martha.  The large flower is punched from a Sizzix die and the small flowers from a punch.  The image is on the Stampin Up die cut, Top Note.  The new baby sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael's.  A white card made from the Glitter Stack from DCWV is the base.

They are calling for some rain.  I'm doing a little rain dance, hoping it will bring the humidity down a notch and give us some relief!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Until later.............

Hi Sue-Oooo I think it has been hot all over the country!! My gracious we haven't had rain in 2 weeks. Yesterday I went to the grocery store and got some ice cream and had to go 10 miles over the speed limit to get home before it melted. I had some Popsicle I had to eat because they weren't going to make it!!! I even brought a cooler!!! Oh I can picture getting pulled over by the police officer now- I am sorry officer, I was speeding because my ice cream is melting!!! lol

Now I see why you would want to do a "blue" card as blue is a "cool" color. This is so adorable. That image is so precious. Your flower is just awesome and I like the sprinkling of the smaller ones to correspond with the sketch. The punched borders are perfect. Beautiful work!!! Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,

Hi Sue,
Why it has taken me so long to view your site again I don't know. What a beautiful surprise. One stamp is cuter than the next!
Canal Fest arts and craft show today. I love to go. Hope to run into you and the gang there.
If you see Mrs. Claus on a boat later it may be someone you know and I don't mean Carol!
Have fun today and hope to see you soon. TERRY
