My 200th POST!!! Wahooo:)

Hello and welcome back to the craft desk here @ Sandybeaches :) We have been busy at school creating Father's Day Cards 'aka' photo frames with Father's Day message on the back. We took photos of the kiddlywinks wearing 'workman' clothes & hat and gave them a hammer to hold. We turned it into a 'following the directions' activity and allowed them to be creative and place a variety of 'hardware' to create a much appreciated Father's Day!!
This weeks sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#171-103)is just a beauty!! Click here to go and have a lookie...and play along too if you have a chance!! I've put together this 'Happy New Baby' card using Stampin' Up! papers, sentiment and bling; Cuttlebug embossing; ribbons from the local craft shop and a whole lot of love. I popped into work today with the card, pressie and some white choc chip muffins to celebrate the up and coming arrival of a special bundle of joy for an awesome teacher:)
The last but not least card that I would like to share tonight is one using this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges (c4c153) was such a great sketch to play with!! Click here to pop in and check out their challenges:) I've used Stampin' Up! paper, stamp & sentiment, embossing folder & brads; checkered paper and balloon punch from the stash and wah lah...the latest creations here @ Sandybeaches :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!
