Saturday Sketch Challenge 9/4

What a week!!!!  I am glad it's over.  I am soooo looking forward to this long Holiday weekend.  Last week, I told you my sister was in the hospital.  She has been released BUT they sent her to a rehab facility so she could continue to get IV antibiotics.  She'll be there for SIX WEEKS with no computer, no cable. I feel soooo bad for her!!!!  If you want to cheer her up, you can send a card to:

Fay Gardner
6705 Fire Hill Drive
Fort Worth, TX  76137

I know she would love it!!!!!  Thank you!

So here is my card.  I love this set and it is the first time I have used it!  Can you believe??????  I love paper piecing and this set is perfect for it.  You can see the sketch that inspired this card over at the UDI Blog where you can also find links to the rest of the design team OR you can just follow the link at the end of this post to do our "Sketch Skip"!

Now on to Tammy's Blog to see her wonderful creation for this week!  Have a SAFE and wonderful weekend!  We're going to have homemade Jalapeno Burgers and tater salad, what are you having????


  1. Hi, Ruthie! What a wonderful take on the sketch! I also love your idea for using Awash with Flowers for paper piecing. I think I'll have to case the idea.


  2. i love the simplicity of your card. the subtle colors are perfect. great job!!! xoxo

  3. Great card! I love how you used the flower petals for all those circles in the sketch.

  4. Gorgeous card!! Love it!! Hope your sister is doing better!!

  5. Great card, Ruthie! We had Pesto pasta for dinner. Jalepeno burgers sound great, though. I may have to try them. I hope your sister recovers quickly.
