Good morning all you Sketch Saturday fans!
With all the horrible weather here in Oregon this week, I've had lots of time on my hands! I've just been flying through my cards all week! We're having what I like to call a rain apocalypse here...lol! While we Oregonians are use to the rain..this has been the worst and major flooding in almost every county along the coast! Got a little scary yesterday with a few towns having to actually be evacuated because of it. We live a little higher up in the Eugene area, so we only have to deal with the minimal flooding on the streets where they don't drain very well. But step outside and you'll just get blown down the street! I'm hoping the rain and wind will subside a little this weekend, specially for the people who live next to the rivers that have overflowed and the counties who are under flood emergency. I really feel for ya and you are all in my thoughts! Stay safe! ♥
Now onto my card and another fabulous sketch from Jo this week!

What an awesome prize...so what are ya waiting for?!! Let's see those cards and leave some comment love for the wonderful Saturday Girls DT! ♥
For my card this week, I have used an absolute adorable stamp from "Belle's and Whistles" called 'Beary Big Hug'! She can be found HERE! I colored her in with my Copics and used my white opaque pen to make the cute little bear have polka dots! I'm in a polka dot mood lately!! And I've been experimenting with different shades of blonde hair lately...I think I'm getting better! :)
I just love these super sparkly hearts! Along with the 'Love' word, they are from the Recollections brand and I got me a bunch in different colors from Michaels on sale at the time! My flowers are from "WOC" of course as well as the crystal stems. I think I went a little crazy with the flowers and the Stickles too! I so wish I could undo the Stickles...ah well. The flourish is a die from "MFT". The rectangles and scalloped rectangle dies are from "Spellbinders".
I used my "EZ Bow Maker" and a gorgeous rhinestone brad from the "Lush" brand. I hung a Tibet style heart charm from my stash on the brad and bow. All the rhinestones in the corners were done with my "iRock" tool...love that thing, it comes so in handy as I love to bling up my cards! :)
Cardstock is from DCWV and purple DP is from Recollections. The heart patterned DP is from "Ellie Lash Designs" which is part of a Valentine collection kit. So I want to give her a special thank you for the beautiful DP from her kit! Be sure to check out her blog because she has lots of beautiful Scrapbooking kits as well as freebies too! ♥
Loving the inside on this one! I really like the look of plain Kraft cardstock!
