Sweet Sunday!

Tomorrow is my mother in law's birthday, so I had a choice...I could use a ready made card from my collection OR I could make one with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 43 (which is what I chose to do).

So here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

Stamps: Verve Just For You
Paper: Bordering Blue, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, White
Ink: Bordering Blue, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Versamark
Accessories: Dimensionals, White Ribbon, Nestabilities, Scallop Cutter

MrP will give it to his Mom tomorrow when they take her for birthday lunch. She's kept every card I've ever made for her (despite my best efforts to get her to recycle them!) and I hope she likes it.

I just realized that Wednesday is a Holiday and Friday was my regular scheduled day off, so I took Thursday off, as well....five whole days off! Hope that means I'll actually get something done around the house =)


  1. You got to this sketch already!!! good for you! It's great! Love the turquoise and the stamp set you used. Very sentimental.

  2. Beautiful take on Karen's sketch! I love the colors too!

  3. Love the Verve stamps on this :) I'm working on mine as we speak :) I'm jealous of your long, long weekend!! Unfortunately my work is not as flexible!! LOL "Uh, kids, don't show up till next week!!" LOL You'll have lots of time to make up your PTI order!! LOL :)

  4. This is gorgeous! I love the color combo and the background stamping is wonderful. Your MIL will love this card!!

  5. Way to show some Verve :D I just love that leaf - bought the Plain Jane of it. Way to go using it to create your DP. Sponging of the main sentiment is lovely too. Congrats on the long weekend.
