Happy Saturday, Happy Stamping!
Kay, so here we go again!!!! LOL!!! If you were following my blog last Saturday, this sketch may look familiar............usually I am SO far behind that if I were a pup, i'd be chasing my tail......but last week, I was ahead of myself, missed the mark on the challenge and most brilliantly (rolls eyes!) was a week ahead. I DO love this sketch though and for variety's sake decided to adapt it to a 6x6 sized card.

The challenge is to create a card using basic geometric shapes. Your card must be rectangular in shape and you must use 2 different patterned papers, one cut in the shape of a circle and the other in the shape of a square. So we have a rectangle, a circle and a square. You must also use a Pink Cat Studio stamp as the main image for the card. You can use stamps from other companies as well. So these are the minimum requirements for the card. You can add more shapes and papers as well as any embellishments you would like, so the possibilities are endless.
Date the challenge ends: Sunday May 31st, 5 pm EST
A Pink Cat Studio stamp must be used as the main stamp on the card. It is okay to use stamps from other companies as well. To be eligible for the prize you must leave a comment in this post. In your comment provide a link to your card. Your card can either be displayed on your blog or in an online gallery. You may enter only 1 project for this challenge.
This contest will be judged by the design team. Since this is Jodi’s challenge, she will select her 3 favorite cards and then the DT will vote for a winner. On June 1st, the winner will be announced on the PCS blog. The winner will receive a grab bag of Pink Cat Studio stamps. Some cards from the challenge may be displayed on the PCS blog.

Fortunately I have a long lens and managed to sneak in a few shots while he was kibbutzing with his friends on a recent school fieldtrip I chaperoned. There was a time when he would pose and actually enjoyed it, but most of the time now, I get a "silly" face or the "peace sign"......or just an "OH MOM"!!!! Even though he's just shy of 6 feet tall now and his shoe size surpasses his age, He's still my sweet little boy as illustrated in this picture of him relaxing in the grass. He's growing up way too fast and I will take every opportunity I can to capture some memories!!!

I LOVE this new Summer set from Hanna Stamps!
I used a base of Coredinations paper and tore the edge to give contrast to the Sandy Colours.
SU! Chocolate Chip Rub ons make a cute background.
I coloured my image with Copic Markers and Sponged SU Cool Caribbean Ink for the Sky and Creamy Caramel for the Sand. The flower is from Prima and the Button from Foofala!
Also a big thanks to Robin for this Sweet Blog Award! The wording for this award is as follows:
The Karma Award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.

Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
So, I will choose...................
Stamps are from Stampendous, I used my Cropadile to emboss the "bubbles" into the white card back and used copics on SU Shimmery White Paper!!!!!
