Weekend Sketch Challenges

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you well and happy!

I'm going to be super busy this weekend so I thought I would just hide out in my craft room and get creative today. It was too HOT to do anything else. The house work will have to wait! I played around with Pears today because I had one for lunch lololo.

But first I wanted to tell you all how wonderful my DH is. He came home after work and said get dressed we're having Date Night tonight! It didn't take me long to jump on that one. We usually do something on Saturdays but I have a Banquet to attend tomorrow night.
He said grab the Boys and lets go up the hill where it is cooler! We took a very beautiful drive up to Big Bear Lake and found a Pizza Parlor with outside seating and they accepted Dogs on the patio. We met a couple great families with their dogs and had dinner and chatted and then drove home. It was a perfect Date Night Date with all my boys.
I Love you Jeff!

I saw this beautiful Sketch over at Sharon Fields Blog. It is the first sketch for the Stampin Queens weekly Sketch Challenges so I thought I would play along.http://gettincrafty.typepad.com/stampin_queens_sketch_cha
Here is their Sketch
and this is what I came up with
I hope you like it! It was a really fun sketch.

The next Sketch Challenge was from Create with Connie and Mary  http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com
I really like both of their creations, and this sketch was fun to play along with.
This is what I made from their Sketch
What do you think about my Pairs of Pears lololol
Thanks for the inspiration Ladies. I had fun playing in my craft room today, that's for sure!

Now it is your turn to go and create something fun.

I love them both!! I also love you both (well include the furry boys in there too so it is more than you both). You tell Mr. Jeff Carey thinks he is the bomb. Ask him to call Dean and suggest this. Hee hee

Both cards are wonderful, Patrice, but I especially LOVE the card with the cork. It just seems like the perfect compliment to that image.

The cork adds some texture to the card. Love that image. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary challenge this week!
