Sweet Sunday Sketch #114

Hi there! It's Sunday and the Sweet Sunday Stampers are celebrating a couple of very special birthdays this weekend - our fearless leader Karen, Vicki, and Sarah-Jane all share the same birthday!! Isn't that weird!? So some of us decided it would be appropriate to wish them a Happy Birthday by creating birthday cards for our sample for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and we think you all should join us!! Here's a look at this week's sketch if you want to play along:


And here's the birthday card I created using some much-neglected stamps and dies - I flipped the sketch in case you couldn't tell:


That yummy paper is from Crate Paper and I used 2 different PTI stamp sets on this card - Simple Sentiments and Tag-Its #1. I also used several different PTI dies and some felt. I've been cooped up in the house for 2 days with a sick 4-yr-old and am starting to feel a bit under the weather myself so I apologize for not listing everything out for you. If you have any questions about other products used, just leave a comment or e-mail me. For now, I'm headed to bed (it's still Saturday night here and the Easter Bunny / Passover Penguin still have some work to do (I know, I know - but we're a dual holiday family and since we don't really get too deep into the religious part but are FULLY into the presents and candy part - it's only fair to give both holidays their fair time in the spotlight around here. And yes, we totally made up Passover Penguin and we don't worry too much about accurate dates - but trust me. He's a cool dude. ha!).

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!
