Hello, everyone!
Thanks so much for stopping in again! A big thank you for all the get well wishes too! I really appreciate your sweet words of encouragement! :o)
I'm here today to remind you about the fabulous birthday celebration going on over at A DIE FOR A SKETCH this month! The blog hop is over but there are still lots of prizes up for grabs. You can see the list and all the other Design Team projects HERE. All you have to do is create a project using this great sketch and at least one diecut:

Last time my project used an image from the sponsor Milk Coffee Digi Stamps. You can see that post HERE
This time I used an image from the sponsor StampArt Design by Kathryne. I'm very happy that I got this card done before Mr Flu came to visit! This image is called "Katie" and I think she is just the sweetest thing! The sentiment is also by Kathryne and was a freebie from her "Talk About Tuesday" post. You all really need to head over to Kathryne's blog and subscribe so you can receive the wonderful freebies that she shares every week!

Materials Used:
Papers: Prima- Sun Kiss, Momenta Cardstock;
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Standard Circles (LG),
Spellbinders Just Rite Custom Dies;
Pearls: Stampin' Up;
Ink: Distress Ink - Vintage Photo;
Doily: My Stash.

Here's a close-up of my corner embellishments. One of the papers had these tiny little bees all over it. I used a die and strategically placed it over the bee...six times...then added some pearls.

Please pop on over to A DIE FOR A SKETCH and check out all the details. Then get to work on your project! Maybe you'll win one of the great prizes! 
There is also a Design Team call going on. All the details can be found HERE!
Thanks very much! :o)

Your coloring is amazing! I admire people with this talent. I think I am just not patient enough to play and try and "sharpen" my skills which I have to say I am pretty bad at. This is so so sweet! :-)
