Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #104

Whew! It's been almost 2 weeks since my last blog post! CRAZY. It's been a very busy few weeks - we had my Dad's Celebration of Life last Saturday (2/5) and I was very busy trying to finish up the Tribute Album I was creating in his honor (I'll start sharing some of those layouts here soon) and enjoying time with friends and family who traveled from the mainland to help us celebrate my Dad's life.

OK, so anyway. It's Sunday!! That means it's time for a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. As always, Karen created a fun one for us this week:


I was in need of yet another little boy birthday card for one of Dean's preschool buddies who turned 4 last week, so I can up with this, which sort of resembles the sketch - right!?


I used a bunch of neglected PTI goodies - Tiny Treats Birthday, By the Numbers Impression Plate, Mat Stack 5 die, medium Scalloped border die. The color combo is PTI's Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, and Harvest Gold. I colored the cute little balloon image with Copics, added some Chocolate Chip ribbon and called it good.

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch.
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!
