Sweet Sunday Sketch #76

Happy Sweet {4th of July} Sunday!! I thought I'd sneak in one final Holiday-themed, all-hybrid card today with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Here's a look at the sketch:


And here's a look at my almost-no-stamping hybrid creation:


I used the new Light up the Night kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe) - all of the papers, except for the Kraft and Gray cardstock, are printed digi papers from the kit. And those adorable firecrackers are printed digi elements too!! I also busted out some Sizzix dies for the "4" and the "th", layering them on top of some circle nesties and adding a stamped "happy" to complete the "Happy 4th" sentiment. Cute, yeah?

Be sure to check out the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with the sketch. A few of the girls are sitting this week out, but I left them on the list anyway because their blogs are so full of awesomeness that I know you'll find SOMETHING to inspire you...
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

That's it for me! I'm scheduling my post early - it's actually Saturday evening here in Hawaii and we're heading out the door soon to go to a party!! One of my best friends, Sarah, and her girlfriend Tiare are hosting one of their famous "food and alcohol" parties! I can't wait!! LOL. (Fortunately they only live about 4 blocks from us, so we're WALKING for ultimate safety!! ha!).

I hope all of my U.S. friends have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!! Try not to blow your face off with any fireworks!! :-)

I know I tell you this all the time, but I love your eye for matching those fabulous hybrid papers and what you create with them. I was checking out the Sweet Shoppe and trying to pick some out. Need to revisit your tutorial on how not to print out a full page of each.
