It's the weekend!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I was hoping for a fun, relaxing weekend and instead I got hit with another bit of vertigo. I had a really bad episode of vertigo that lasted 3 weeks last November and then had it again a few weeks ago but it only lasted a few days. Unfortunately I woke up this morning with my world spinning around and around. I've been relaxing all day and I'm hoping this goes away ASAP. In the meantime I have a couple cards to share that I managed to finish before I got too dizzy.
I decided to play along with the Taylored Expression sketch challenge this week. I actually made 2 different cards for this week's sketch.

Here is the sketch:

My first card uses this adorable "There never was a child" sentiment stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps. A friend of mine recently adopted a baby and I needed a card to send along with the gift. This sketch worked great with this sentiment.
My second card uses the "Fairy Tales are True" sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps and this AWESOME dragon from the "She Dreams" set from Firecracker Designs. I couldn't wait to pair up the 2 stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check back tomorrow for the first of the August sneak peaks from Little Paper Shop!

Both cards are true beauties. You really did an awesome job with this sketch. I hope you get to feeling better soon! Vertigo isn't fun, for sure.
