It's Sunday in most parts of the USA and that means it's time for Sweet Sunday Sketch #100! Wow! Can you believe we're already at Sketch #100!? Amazing. And Karen has a fun one for us this week:
I'm having trouble with my wireless keyboard - it's suddenly decided to ignore about every 3rd letter I type, which is driving me INSANE and meaning it's taking FOREVER to do anything. And yes, I've tried changing the batteries and switching the thingie to a different USB port with no luck. So I think I have to buy a new one. And this is already my 2nd on in 6 months! ARGH! Any suggestions on a good one? Anyone else have this trouble with wireless keyboards? And I have to have wireless because my workstation is counter height, so I have to bring my keyboard down to my lap when I type to keep things ergonomical so as not to cause musculoskeletal strain or overuse injury (I am a Physical Therapist ya know, and these things are very important! LOL). Anyway, I WAS going to keep this short and sweet, but it seems I'm just babbling on and on about my keyboard woes. ha!
So on to my sample...I wanted to make a fun gender-neutral birthday card to have on hand using those awesome Verve balloons, so I busted out some Stampin' Up Celebrations DP for this one (ya know, fun and gender neutral and all):
Isn't that fun? I used Verve's Birthday Bash for the balloons, paper piecing each one with cardstock that matched the DP and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from Verve's Big Wish. These are 2 of my favorite "go-to" birthday sets and I love how they mix and match with so many other stamp sets in my stash! I added a glittered star I bought on Etsy (MemrieMare) and some pom pom trim to fancy it up a bit and it was done!
