Sweet Sunday Sketch #71

Happy Sunday! I can't believe it's already Memorial Day Weekend! CRAZY. Do you guys have anything exciting planned this weekend? It's a 4-day weekend for me and we spent most of the day yesterday doing yardwork. We planted a total of 20 palm trees in our yard!! Yes, that's right - TWENTY. They're all Areca Palms along our back fence, something we've been meaning to do for over a year now. We're hoping they grow fast and give us some shade for the back side of our house, which faces the West and gets SUPER hot in the late afternoon. Anyway, today we're just going to chill at home - I'm crafting a little and catching up on laundry while the boys do some boy stuff. Tomorrow we'll probably head out to Makena and spend at least half the day on Big Beach - our Memorial Day tradition!! Of course, it's a holiday, so that means half of Maui will be there with us, but that's OK! It's a Monday and I won't be at work so I don't really care!! :-)

Anyway, today's Sunday so it's time for another fun Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I really REALLY love this week's sketch and can see myself using this one over and over again. It's so versatile!


I created a sweet summery hybrid card this week using printed digi papers and an adorable digi Popsicle embellishment from the Pop! digi kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe). The "sweet" sentiment tag is stamped from the Mini Mixed Messages set from PTI.


Be sure to check out the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with the sketch:
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!
