Sunday Sketch and Stamp --- Design Team Blog Hop!

Thank you for joining us on the first day of the brand new Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge blog!!
Maggie, our fearless leader, gave us a terrific sketch for our first challenge and it is posted over on the blog .  We would love for you to post your takes on the sketch and the DT will be touring the blogs and looking at all the great talent out there.
Below is my card from Maggie's sketch.  I used DP from K & Company Classic Collection. The double-sided CS gives so many wonderful combinations. The image of Whiff of Joy Willow is colored with Copics. Isn't she just the sweetest? The ovals are cut with my Nesties. The scroll on the right side and the flowers are cut with Cuttlebug dies and accented with pearls. The "Cherish" charm makes a nice finishing touch and could be used for a number of sentiments.
But there is more today!  Scroll below the card ............................

We're having a blog hop today (26th April) to mark the launch of the site, so if you'd like to join in then hop back on over to the SSS blog where you'll find all the instructions and the link to the first blog to visit.

If you're already joining in the blog hop, you should have come to my blog from Clare at Taffy Crafty Creations (and if you didn't, you've taken a wrong turn -- oops --- and need to go back to SSS and start again...sorry!).

My blog hop question is: "How did I get the name for my card business?" You'll find the answer somewhere on my blog, so be sure to have a good look around! When you've found the answer, write it down and then hop on over to Stephanie's blog, Owl Whimsy, where you can see her wonderful DT card and the next question and blog hop link.

Good luck, have fun, and thanks for playing along with us - we can't wait to see what you create!

Hi Barb
Such a beautiful card! You know I love your work and The way you've coloured her cute little hat is just wonderful. Lovely to see a photo of you too. As an avid follower of your blog I think the answer to your question is that handcrafted cards are keepsakes forever hence the name of your blog Made for Keeps was born. Thats what I think I read from memory!

Nicely done, Barb!

Finally...I cannot tell you how many times I stopped by yesterday to leave a comment just to have my son or one of his friends "need" me for something. Normally, I would have told him to wait; but since it was his birthday, I dropped everything I was doing to cater to him:o) You're a mom...I know you understand.

Your card is divine and definitely "Made for Keeps":o) Your grandmother knew exactly what she was saying when she said those precious words to you because I feel the same way. You have been a beacon of light in my life, and I thank you for everything!!! I hope you know how much your friendship means to me:o)

Love ya!!!
