{SSSC113} Here's a Hug!


Happy Monday!   I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with time to do as you pleased.  That's all I did and it really was wonderful!  :)   My neighbor and good friend Vicki came over and we created several cards . . . baby, birthday and wedding too!   I was going to share them yesterday, but will share them tomorrow instead. 

The card I'm posting tonight was created especially for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge hosted by Karen Giron at The Sweetest Thing.    She loves to challenge us with a circle image and I was ready for it with this adorable Pure Innocence "Better Get Better" set by My Favorite Things


The base of my 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card is my new favorite pink .. Stampin Up in color Blushing Bride.  The designer paper is "all me"...perfectly distressed, but oh soooo soft and feminine too.  I picked it up on sale at Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago.  It's Vintage Whimsy by The Girls' Paperie. The blue strip under the image with the rose buds is another strip of the same paper. 

Here's the sketch . . .  isn't it GREAT?  Another keeper! 


The photo below shows you how I finished off the inside using more of the same dp.  Did you notice the cool lined paper behind my card?  That is by the same company and coordinates with this paper.  Love it!


That's all for tonight.  I need to get this linked up and head to bed before too long.  As always, I'm so glad you stopped by and I sincerely appreciate all your comments.  They brighten my day and motivate me to keep on stampin' on!  {{{HUGS}}} to you all and a very special shout out to ... Marisa! ... Creative Mish! ... Debbie! ... Gail!    You make my ♥ smile!  : )
