Sketch Saturday Week #129

Morning All,

You must be sooooo bored of me saying it, but I'm going to anyway!...
I so love the weekends!!  And this weekend I have some time to craft too, wahoo!!  Well hopefully anyway!!  That's the plan at the moment along with a night out with our best friends tonight and seeing the family tomorrow, oh and a bit of paperwork too, lol!  It's all go isn't it!!

This week has been very busy but also AMAZING for Daemo (hubby) and I and we made a massive step forward with our dream!  If you've read my 'About Me' blurb in the side bar you'll have read that my story into crafting is a very sad one, in that I got into it following our sons stillbirth.  Well the sad times didn't stop there and as it turned out we also discovered due to my very rare blood disorder that Harrison was our one and only chance of having our own child.  And although this was God's will, we still desperately want to become parents!  So our new dream was Adoption which we first investigated and enquired about almost 2 years ago now.  Well this week we made our first step and were invited on a 'Motivation to Adopt' day, which was absolutely BRILLIANT!!  We met some amazing people in similar situations to ours and for once felt relatively normal, lol!  We learnt so much and it really confirmed our thoughts not to give up, that this was most definitely the way forward for us.  Soooooo exciting!!  Fingers crossed we get through to the next stage, we can't wait!!...  :o)))

Onto my card and this week I had an order for an Engagement Card so I tied this in with my Sketch Saturday DT Card and this little beauty was created!  What do you think?...

Close up of Digi Stamp Boutique's Cute Love Birds.  I've sticky fixed them up onto the nestie for a 3D effect...

Inside of card, sentiment from Elzybells...

Side view to show the dimension...

My friend Maria who ordered the card wanted it for her brother, she was over the moon with it  :o)

This was the fab sketch we followed this week...

And our very generous sponsor of a $25.00 gift certificate is...

How generous!!  So why not join in the fun too?  And you should definitely check out the DT Cards this week - what a talented bunch they are!!

Ok I'm sure that's quite enough of me going on, lol!  Have a fab weekend everyone and I'll see you all again soon  :o)

Much love,
