Today is a very special day - my oldest daughter Sarah is turning 11 years young!!! I have to admit I'm freaking out a little bit, because she will be in *Middle School* this fall!!! It all has gone by so fast....my husband I were talking about her *first* day in Preschool just the other day.....how can this all happen so fast...???
Sorry - I know you didn't stop by to hear me whine - LOL!!! On a happy note, I'm taking my *birthday girl* shopping today....she has outgrown a lot of her cloth and it's time for a new spring wardrobe!!!
Anyway - here is what's going on with the OCC Challenge - Laurie as challenged us to another fab Sketch of hers!!! I love Sketches!!! For all the awesome Samples and more info please visit the OCC blog!!! If you follow Laurie's blog you know that sweet little Ali had to undergo a biopsy on a tumor in her brain this past week. I made this card especially for Ali today!!!
I only had time to make one card so I combined the Inspiration Challenge #169 and the OCC Sketch!!! Did you see the fabulous Designer Store??? All I can say is WOW!!! I have chosen this beautiful plaque.
I used the gorgeous new *Thoughts & Prayers* Set from SU - the little flowers in the plaque reminded me of this image. I think this is the my favorite Set out of the new Catalog!!! I used this color combo - Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze and Old Olive!!!
I used my little Cameo Coral Ink Spot on the flowers and the Old Olive Marker on the leaves. I used the large oval and scalloped Nestie for the centerpiece. I dressed the little flowers with small Pearls and I also placed a bigger Pearl in the center of the Designer Button from the Button Bouquet Collection. The side panel was punched out with Scalloped Edge Punch. I added a thin Baja Breeze CS on top and pierced it.
Here is a direct link to all the OCC ladies - Amy, Cindy, Dawn, Jennifer, Julee, Laurie, Lori, Lynda, Jackie and Kim.
Hope you have a chance to play along??? Have a great weekend!!!
