Weekend Sketches

The most glorious thing happened yesterday.  My hubby took Brady to the park and I was left ALONE for about two hours.  Do you have any idea what it feels like after spending the last 15 months with someone CONSTANTLY by your side?  I'm feeling very refreshed and my mojo is up.

I decided to do a few weekend sketch challenges.  I like sketches, they give me direction.  I love direction, I'm lost without it.  Pun very much intended.  

The first sketch is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge.  I am SO in love with this Ghandi quote!  Unity's quote single stamps are some of my 
favorites!  I just love them!  I wish I could have every single one.  And since Beate's sketch asks for a little square in the front I spent a good while racking my brain.  I thought about putting a flower, a butterfly or even a tree there.  And then it hit me, "THE WORLD."  Duh Ashley!  Sometimes I am so slow.  So, here's the adorable Earth from Unity's Eco Chic.

Ok, my next card is something totally different.  This is for Jen del Muro's sketch for you to try.  This week it is sponsored by Stamping Bella.  I got some Bellas in a swap a while back.  I've never used one before but I decided that she's rather sassy.  She's wearing a brown halter top, brown boots, some dark denim jeans, and a cute little hot pink apron.  Cute huh?  She even decorated her cake herself!  


  1. Can I get an Amen to that!!? Good for you!!!! I'm so glad you had some alone time to whip up these beauties! Your bella is all tan and blond! It reminds me of the one time I went in to the hair salon and told them to do anything they wanted to my hair and I ended up blond! LOL :)
