Sweet Sunday Sketch #47

Karen has a SUPER fun Sweet Sunday Sketch for you to play with this week!! Check it out:

Today is my son Dean's 3rd Birthday and we celebrated with a fun party at Keopuolani Park in Kahului yesterday morning. It was a beautiful Maui day- sunny and warm (about 80 degrees) - I was worried it was going to rain - and the kids wore themselves out running around and playing on the playground!! Dean totally scored with tons of new toys (just what he needs right before the holidays!! ha!) and it really was a pretty perfect day!! I just can't believe my baby is already 3!

This afternoon we're headed to another birthday party. Dean's friend Noah was born exactly 1 week before Dean and his 3rd birthday party is this afternoon Upcountry. I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch to create this fun and colorful card for him:

I'm excited to have finally busted a few PTI sets I've had for awhile but that had never seen ink until now!! And I got to use my new Apron Lace punch which arrived promptly from this past week (VERY pleased with the super fast and reasonably priced shipping to Hawaii - will definitely be doing more shopping there in the future!!).

What's in it...
Stamps: Star Prints, Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, So Saffron CS, Textured Real Red CS (SU);
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx (Tsukineko); Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery (SU)
Accessories: Star Punch, Bashful Blue ribbon, dimensionals (SU); Apron Lace punch (Fiskars); Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)

Be sure to stop by the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch this week:
Then head on over to Karen's blog and use Mr. Linky to share you own creation with us!!
