SSSC46













It's Sunday morning and its time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, Karen has given us another great sketch for this week and I hope you'll give it a try! I've been missing in action for most of this last week as far as my blog goes even though I really wanted to have time to post a card before Thanksgiving. Life was just too darn busy between having Thanksgiving at our house and all of the cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking I didn't have a chance. That and my youngest son who had the flu the week before and seemed to be getting better ended up Thanksgiving night with a 103.5 fever in the middle of the night. Never a dull moment here at our house, he has an ear infection and is on antibiotics so hopefully this time he'll get healthy and stay that way. Any whoo I had the top card made for the sketch today and then decided to make another. After venturing out yesterday I was driving along and I saw so many fresh cut Christmas trees on top of cars and trucks that it made me think of the stamp set Loads of Love.

Supplies: (top card) Enjoy Every Moment, Maine Blueberry DSP, Ribbon, Small circle punch, Photo corner punch, Piercer, Pop dots, Button. Colors: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Bashful Blue.

Supplies: (bottom card) Loads of Love, Merry Moments DSP, Ribbon, Photo corner punch, Aqua brush. Colors: Chocolate Chip, G

arden Green, Real Red, Going Grey, Basic Grey.

If you'd like to play along create a card using the Sweet Sunday Sketch then go to Karen's blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation.

These are both very cute---I need to use these sets more often! And Loads of Love is not retired, so isn't that all the better? I saw lots of trees yesterday, too! Perfect set for this time of year.
Hope you family is feeling better!

Wow, Lynn, I totally love both cards!! The first one is made with my favorite colors, I absolutely adore the Maine Blueberry DS paper and soooo wish it hadn't retired and the second one is adorable, love the colors, and that set, which I haven't used in forever!!!

Oh Lynn, I'm sorry to hear your son was sick on Thanksgiving! Glad to hear he's on some medication now and on the mend!

Your cards are awesome! I almost used Loads of Love too! hehe
