The Cat's Away and The Mice Will Play!

Well, that post title says it all!  The kids are back to school today and I am playing in my card studio!  It's so nice and quiet, I can actually hear myself think!  Don't get me wrong, I am eager to pick them up and hear about their first day of school!  My son started Kindergarten today and my middle daughter started middle school, how appropriate!  My eldest daughter is a seasoned pro already, she started her Junior year of H.S. today!
WOW  I am getting old!
So while the 3 cats are away, I will play!
Here is what I played with this morning:

I just can't resist this little "Pure Innocence" cutie by Heather Ellis!  She looks good in whatever colors you put on or around her!  I made this card this morning for 3 different challenges. 
The first is for sketch #77 over at Card Patterns and it looks like this:
The second challenge is The Pink Elephant and their challenge (#80) is to use ribbon and sparkles and last but certainly not least is the City Crafter Challenge Blog.  Their challenge (#18) this week is called Isn't She Lovely and they want us to put a stamp image, picture or clipart image of a girl or a lovely lady, on our project.
I decorated my sketch with ribbon and sparkly rhinestones and put my little cutie patootie girl out for show!
My yellow DSP and buttons are from PTI and my lil' cutie is a digital stamp by Heather Ellis that I colored with my Letraset ProMarkers and cut out.
I hope you are all enjoying your day, I certainly am!
