It all started with a trip to IKEA...

And then whoosh went the weekend!
Hi everyone and happy Monday to you all!
So in a nutshell, we rearranged all the kiddos rooms and DH thought it would be a great idea for the girls to have matching dressers. (They all voluntarily share a room now.)
I headed out to IKEA on Saturday, DH's timeline was:
4:00pm buy dressers
5:00 pm assemble dressers
8:00 pm Done by their bedtime

Shyeah, right! Do you know we finished the project at 9pm? On SUNDAY! Lol! But at least everyone's happy, I'll have to take a pic of the finished headache - uh, I mean, project. ;)

Normally I post wonderful Whimsie Doodles on Wednesday, but today we're having our monthly sketch challenge:
Cute right? Love the fancy shmancy on the left and the circle on the right because it reminded me of this little guy and his friend:

I can't get enough of this set! It's called Fish Tales and is available now, just follow the blog link HERE. I also found this cute little 2001 SU stamp that I've had for a while:

Now I know that octopi ink, but thought that this was a sweet little sentiment for these sea creatures. I believe I've kept this stamp for 8 years just for this card. ;)

Rules: just make a project using the provided sketch and a Whimsie Doodle stamp then upload it to your blog or online gallery using the keyword/tag WDS03.
Then leave a link to your project on the blog HERE, so we can come check out your creation.
There is no time limit to the number samples you can submit for the sketch challenge.

The winner will receive some wonderful digis from Melyssa!
Okay, go enjoy your Monday and play around with this sketch. I am going to pretend it's Saturday. *Love and Aloha*

What a great card - the sea creatures are absolutely adorable and its funny that you should have that stamp. That's an incentive stamp that I think I still have, too. Beautiful card and it's a wonderful sketch.

Great job Joni!

Yes, Ikea is a time warp. You lose all track of time when you are in there. At least I do. I love your card Joni! Your coloring is AMAZING!
