Freshly Made Sketches & Merry Monday ~ Merry!

I have to say I enjoy crafting along side my little man in the mornings when Claire is having her first nap :) Here is the project Ethan made today {with some help from mommy of course}! 

A Mommy Alligator protecting her eggs {that is why she needed "angry eyes" lol}! 

And while he was adding the spot and we were waiting for her to dry... I got to make a card :) Here is a card I have made using the Freshly Made Sketch this week! I am having SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun with my *NEW* Holiday Mini items!!! And of course I will be linking up once again at Merry Monday for their July Anything Goes challenge & at Crafty Hazelnut's Anything Goes Christmas challenge :)
