It's the first Saturday of the month and that means it's time for a new Sketch For You To Try!!
And this month we have a FABULOUS new sponsor - Stamping Bella! yay! Unfortunately, the USPS seems to be taking their sweet time with my stamp set, so I don't have a Bella sample for you today - but don't worry, you'll know as soon as I receive that package!! I can't wait! In the meantime, I decided to create another Father's Day card to add to my stash using some of my favorite Verve stamps.

That yummy DP is actually printed digi paper from the new Spare Me digi kit by Libby Pritchett (Sweet Shoppe) that just released TODAY! I also used my old stand-by for masculine cards - that fun wave-circle-frame-thing from Verve's Happy Days as well as a sentiment from Happy Phrases. And I hope you guys aren't getting tired of my glittered stars yet! Because I seem to be on a glittered star kick lately! So yeah, there's another one of those along with some buttons and ribbon to match my papers. And that's it. I think I just have 2 more Father's Day cards to make and then the husband and grandparents are all taken care of this year!

And here's a look at the June sketch - now go get to work on your own creation!!

Be sure to stop by the rest of the SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch:

Jen del Muro with guest designer Joanne Basile
Amber Hight
Amy Sheffer
Carole Burrage
Jodi Collins
Kelly Lunceford
Kerry Johnson
Megan Lock
Susan Liles
Terri Moore

Well, that's it from me today. My mother-in-law has been here visiting for 2 weeks and heads back to Kansas tonight, so we'll be enjoying our last day with her probably with a fun day at the beach!

ETA: In my haste to get my post scheduled last night I totally forgot to include the information about how to participate and all the good stuff about winnings and such! You can play along with us by making your own creation using the sketch and linking it up HERE anytime before the end of the month. Everyone who plays along with all of the 2011 sketch challenges will be eligible for a super awesome prize drawing at the end of the year! All of the contest details can be found in this post on Jen's blog. Have fun!

I love that wave from Verve too! Can't believe how you cut it out so well. I need a little die for it (hear that Julee?) Your card is wonderful and I love the sparkle heart tucked in!
