Catching up with 2 Cards Today :)

Thank you ALL sooooo very much for your sweet comments :)
You have no idea how much they and y'all mean to me!!!

Both my boys were sick over the weekend
and we used yesterday as a day of nothing to relax
and get some much needed food and vitamins in their tummies...
So these last few days were a perfect timing to step back a bit -
take care of my babies
and just think about how very lucky I am to have them in my life,
(even with the puke and snot all over me, lol)

Sometimes little things in life happen for a reason to help you get back on track,
really appreciate and value what you have with your family
and friendships from all corners of your lil world :)

So I'm starting off this week with 2 cards that I created last week...
First, is my card for this week's Oh, Alice! sketch challenge...

This week's Oh, Alice sketch (OAC4) was created by our very own
Pam (of The Stamping Addict)... Here's the sketch:

This card is very different than what I usually would have created...
It's definitely Alice-inspired, or should I say "Little-White-Rabbit-inspired" ;)

I've had these frames by Making Memories for a while now
and have been afraid to use them! LOL!
It was time to "jump down the hole" and have a go with one ;)
The paper is Basic Grey's "Joy Ride"
and the stamped image is from Tweety Jill Designs -
"Down the Rabbit Hole" Rubber Stamp Collection :)
... inked with Memento Black and colored with my Copics!
There's no time limit for this week's sketch,
so take your time in Wonderland and ENJOY creating!

Next, I have a Pixie Dust sneak peek to share with you :)
 (Please excuse my crooked pic taking!)

Coming soon! March 18th!
This image is called "Pals of the Past"... 
a boy and his pup! Such a cute pair!
It is the perfect image for Father's Day, or male themed card for a loved one :) 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Tuesday!!!

Hi Margie, love both of your cards. Really like the frame you used on your first card. The little boy is darling and would make a great Father's Day card. Hope your boy's are feeling better soon and you take care!
