This week's challenge on the Just Us Girls site is a sketch challenge.  I had some crafty time over the weekend and was able to put this card together for my friend and neighbor who's expecting a boy at the end of March.    I had fun coloring up this Stamping Bella image with my prismas:

I pulled out some of my vintage paper (and by vintage I mean I've had it for about 4 years!!!)  LOL

Here's the sketch I followed:

So......if you want to end this post on a happy note....I will tell you to stop reading NOW!!

Don't say I didn't warn you...................

Yesterday was a tough day.  Pinky - the deaf dog I fostered over the summer was put to sleep.  We were told that her food aggression was too escalated to be worked on and another rescue was not an option.  I HATE times like this, but I have to believe she's running free and a better place then Connecticut and I'm glad she came into my life and I had an effect on hers for a bit.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of Ms. Pinky:

Tomorrow I promise I won't be Debbie Downer.

Thanks for your visit!

Oh, so sorry about Pinky, Maria! I know how tough this is on you. (hugs)
Adorable card. Such a perfect take on that sketch. Just love the "vintage" paper with the polka dots and love your coloring on that sweet image.

Hi Maria,

Sad that you had to put Pinky to sleep but as you said she is in a better place now...

Your card is the cutest... what a perfect image for a pregnant lady and those buttons actually smile. Very effective.

Love the card, especially how you did the embossed squares and the colors so perfect for a baby boy. Sorry to hear about Pinkie, it is always tough to hear about animals that have to be put to sleep, but I am sure the good Lord has protected her and she is having a great time.

Adorable card with the blues and brown. I know your neighbor is going to treasure this forever.

So sad about Pinkie, and know you'll always have so many wonderful memories of her.

So sorry to hear about your pup - it's so hard to lose a pet. Nicely done on the card - thanks so much for getting sketchy with JUGS.
