A Wednesday Sketch Challenge and an empty house

Well first things first -Here is a sketch challenge I made for todays SCS challenge SC194. I used Bella Rose DP, Choc chip card base, Red Riding Hood and Pink Pirouette CS and the stamp set Embrace Life. I have an open house and a SAS class this weekend and I should really get more prepared for them, but I have been having a rough week..

On top of feeling not too great the past couple of days, my baby of my 5 children started preschool today. I am just not sure how I feel about all of that! It makes me want another one I think! Sadly it is no longer an option... :) And in a second breath I am not so sure I want to go back to diapers and bottles!

Have a great day and try out the sketch challenge if you have some free time!

Nice Cards! Have you considered becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to fill that void. It's a great outlet.

Congratulations - on your new blog and your empty house. My twins just started high school and they are my only's and I do miss them. I fill my time with my nephews ( 1 and 4 yrs) part time and stamping. It is a very hard thing to get used to- the quiet sometimes drives me crazy, but I usually just turn the stereo on or the tv for noise!!

beautiful card! love your take on the sketch.
I remember when mine were little, I always wanted another one...yes, I had 4 kids in 5 years. I knew I lost it while shopping at CVS for something and a new dad came in holding a newborn infant looking for diapers. I started weeping! Now here I was in the store with two in the shopping cart, one in a backpack and one in a snuggly! looking at this infant made me want another one! I quickly got over that! LOL!
It's hard when they first start school, but you'll soon love those few hours to yourself

Your new blog is great, and so will your quiet time be once you get used to it. Hope your little one settles into school.
