Have A Magical Birthday! -Sketch Saturday Challenge #195 -Sponsored By Stamp Fairy!!

Happy weekend everyone!! 
Hope you can take the time and enjoy the simple things this weekend! I know I will be with my kiddos. I've been super busy all week working on stuff for my Etsy shop, my sentiments and custom a restful time spent with the hubs and the kiddos is very needed for me! I tried to get another card made that I could share with you all this week, but I just didn't find the time! Hopefully next week will go much smoother and I can craft and relax!


We have another super fun sketch for you this week and a fabulous NEW sponsor with the most adorable digi images that some of us on the team took the pleasure to play with!! Also this is the first week our new Saturday Girls get to show off their work for the team!! So be sure to stop by their blogs and give them some comment love!
The Sketch:

And our NEW sponsor this week is "Stamp Fairy"!!

You will find lots of fun, adorable and whimsical images like fairies and teddy bears to fall in love with!

Our challenge winner this week will win a wonderful and very generous $10 gift certificate to spend at "Stamp Fairy"!

It was super generous and so kind of Gerda from "Stamp Fairy" to give us these adorable images to play with this I couldn't pass up the chance! For my card this week, I have used a cutie pie digi from the "Molly Fairy" collection! She came with a beautiful matching sentiment too!

I've been trying to step out of my box lately and use different colors then my safe and norm pink and purple...but I guess old habits die hard! lol! She looks so pretty colored in this rich purple and pink though! And no way could I pass up the chance to sparkle her wings up with Glamour Dust and I used some Stickles on her sparkly wand too!!

The gorgeous plum Asters and the purple and creme Cherry Blossoms are from "Wild Orchard Crafts"! I also used some flat back pearls from "WOC" as well.

I'm super excited about my new "MFT" die that I just had to show it off in this close up! I love my dies...can never have enough! Love this beautiful loopy/crocheted ribbon...I found it in the bargain bin at "Big Lots" of all places! The only disappointment is there isn't much that come on a spool.

I'm still trying to figure out my new sewing machine (yes, a NEW sewing machine...another super exciting purchase!) my stitching turned out a little wonky on the
