Sunny Sunday Sketch - Week 16

Good evening friends!

First, I'd like to apologize for this incredibly late posting of my Sunny Sunday Sketch. The kids are back at school and this week has been completely hectic! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that the kids are back in school (can you hear me now? It's SO quiet in here during the day), but it will take a bit to get back into the groove and make sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be and make sure they have everything they need - PHEW!

So, better late than never, right?

My sketch and card come from a card that I found as I was looking for something to create for my Vegas besties. I'll be working on those tomorrow, but they won't be posted till Wednesday, because I was my friends to have their gifts in hand before they see them on my blog.

So, here's today's sketch:
And here's my take on it (closed):

And here it is slightly open:
I'm not going to show you the inside, because that's full of mush as I gave the card to my hubby.

I was thinking the other day about how lucky I am. For 15 years (almost 16 now), I've been a stay at home mom. Even when DH took a HUGE pay cut as he changed companies, he did whatever had to be done in order to make sure that I could stay home. I am a FIRM believer that children should be raised by their parents. PLEASE don't shoot me if this is not your belief. Everyone has their own set of beliefs. Anyway, I thought I should thank him for everything that he does.

The card is a fun little size - 3 1/4" X 6 1/4". It's made out of a piece of 3 1/4 X 11" cardstock, scored at 6 1/4". The little circle (on a Stampin' Dimensional) is the piece that holds the top piece closed.

Since my Caroline is going to Vegas on Tuesday too, I was able to steal borrow her French Foliage set of Clear Mount stamps to make this card. I only get to keep it for this week, so I may just have to order my own! I just love it!

What do you think?

STAMPS: French Foliage, Short and Sweet
PAPERS: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
INKS: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
ACCESSORIES: Punches, Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!


  1. This is really good!! (and I'm all for mushy cards to hubbys!! I don't think I write enough of them!)

  2. I love your card - it's fabulous! I sure hope I can get to this awesome sketch this weekend. I put all of your sketches in a folder on my computer so I can use them some day!

  3. What a pretty card and how sweet to make it for your husband. I also agree - Moms if it is at all possible, stay home with your kids, it is such a blessing for them and for you. I wish I had been able to stay home, the time truly does go by so fast.

    Thanks for sharing,

  4. Your card is beautiful! and I applaud your committment to stay home with your children. Blessings.


Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to leave me a comment. I read every one of them and appreciate the time you spend on my blog. Have a GREAT day!
