An {Audrie is Fhiona} Sketch For You to Try

Edited to add: SFYTT fans get 15% off their orders by using the code “SFYTT15″!


Well, it's time for Jen's Sketch For You to Try! This week we are being sponsored by Your Next Stamp, a fun little stamp company with super cute stamps and accessories. This little girl is from the Fhiona line. She's a single (and looking), and called Flower Bouquet Fhiona. So sweet!

Audrie, our 6 year old took one look at this card and decided that it was her! I have to admit, she looks a LOT like her! The bangs and the brown straight hair are a perfect match! I'll have to share a picture pretty soon. But for now, here's something she said the other day that got me tickled because it's just so AUDRIE!---She wanted her sister to play a game with her the other day. Lindsie said, "I don't know, maybe." Audrie immediately replied, "Lindsie, I really don't like it when you say maybe because it always means NO." (insert me, trying not to bust out laughing, here.) Yes, that comes from the same little girl who not too long ago told Lindsie she liked her better when she was 7, because she played with her more back then! Teehee! I love watching them figure out their problems together! (and leaving me out of it!)

SUSIE Q-TIP: Instead of ribbon, use twine doubled or tripled or whatever "-led" you want. My new favorite is Divine Twine from The Cat's Pajamas. It's the perfect thickness and it comes in several yummy colors. Um, it's divine.

Here's the sketch that we'd love for you to play along in for your chance to win some stampy goodness from Your Next Stamp! Jen's got all the details over on her blog. First, be sure and check out what my divine SFYTT sisters did with the sketch and see some more eye candy here and there from Your Next Stamp, too!

Eric Update: We had to get up reeeeeeaaaaally early yesterday to be in Dallas at 8:20 in the morning for labwork, a doctor appointment and an all day chemo session of R-CHOP. It went off without a hitch and the doctor said he's doing well other than being slightly anemic. He's been feeling so well lately, that it was a shame he had to go and get "messed up" yesterday! However, Eric was (and still is) extremely delighted to hear that he should only have one more round after this one! So we will go in on Monday for another spinal tap (#5) and then if everything goes as planned, his last R-CHOP should be at the end of the month. All he is hoping for is to be well enough to start writing for the Dallas Morning News again once the high school football games start--he loves that! OH and ya'll know how he's been officially diagnosed with a paralyzed vocal cord--well yesterday, his voice cracked a couple of times and his normal voice peeked through for a couple of syllables at different points during the day! Not sure if it's trying to come back or if it was just a fluke, but it took us both by surprise when it happened! Now he says he's reverted back to being a teenager--180 pounds, always hungry and his voice is cracking! I told him he left out one important male teenager "condition" and I'll leave that right there for ya'll to ponder.
