Sketch Saturday - Sketch #309

Happy Mother's Day (a day early) to all of the mothers visiting my blog.  I hope you are surrounded by love and joy.  Motherhood is one of the hardest things we undertake.  The only thing better than being a mother is being a grandmother!

 I decided on a whole different take on Deb's sketch this week and used kites (nothing remotely related to Mother's Day)!  There was just something about the sketch that made me think of kites, so I went with it. The kites are from an old Stampin' Up! set.  I used my Copics to color the twine on two of the kite strings and created the cloud background by cutting a couple of cloud shapes and using Distress Ink and a sponge dauber.   For those of you who stopped by my blog last week and read about the number of "hello" dies I acquired, this is #2 - from W Plus 9.

Simon Says Stamp! is sponsoring Sketch Saturday this week.  That means the winner receives $25 to use in their shop.  Take a look at the sketch ideas from the rest of the DT here.
