Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #106

It's Sunday again! Can you believe it? And only 2 more days left in February - holy crap! Where in the world did this month go!? I actually have a few posts I need to get in today - somehow I managed to convince myself that I had more than a few days left in the month since it was only the 20-something-th, conveniently disregarding the fact that there are only 28 days in February! ha! But the first of today's post brings us another awesome Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! Check out this weeks' sketch:


I was in need of a birthday card for one of my oldest friends (oldest as in we've been friends for a really really long time, NOT oldest like old lady oldest, although you can be the judge based on that number right there on the front of the card for the whole world to see!! LOL).


I printed up some fun digi papers to create another hybrid card for my sample this week - let me tell ya, I will definitely be using the Lil Miss Funfetti kit by Julie Billingsley (Sweet Shoppe) many more times for birthday goodies!! The glitter heart is from Etsy (MemrieMare), that I had intended to use on some Valentine projects but never got around to it. It works for lovely friend birthdays, though, right? Yeah, I thought so too. The rest of the stuff (other than the circle nesties) is from PTI - Kraft cardstock, number dies, buttons, Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.

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!

OK, first, DO NOT EVER link Etsy shops. They are my weakness and I blame you (maybe even send you a bill) for any and all purchases I make. Second, yeah I bought tons of Valentines stuff and NEVER used them either. What up with that? Don't we believe in love? And third, this is a very cute card! Hugs!!
