sweet sunday sketch challenge #53


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the Mr. Linky box down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked in the Mr. Linky box by 10 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC53 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

For my card today I dove into my new pack of Sweet Pea paper - yummolicious!!  I also wanted to make a fun Valentine's card that wasn't the traditional red/pink/white color combo - what do you think?  I just adore this little house image from Love Everywhere and thought it was so cute combined with the little mailbox.

Also, if you haven't played in last week's challenge, there is still time to enter your name to the Mr Linky box!  Since I'm away from my very precious laptop, I haven't been able to close the post.  So hop on over there and give it a go - or enter another card too!

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:

Have fun!
Karen

It was wonderful meeting you at CHA on Friday! And wouldn't you know that I finished my card this week ON Sunday, lol.

I love the colors in your sample card this week. The little pops of orange against the blue are awesome. Complimentary colors are wonderful, aren't they?

Great color combo for your card Karen! I had fun with this sketch.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Hi Karen!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you at CHA. I saw you working the make-and-takes at the TE booth on Saturday afternoon, but you were so busy, I dared not disturb. I got to meet Jodi, Jackie, Taylor, Jon and Jami in the morning.

I love your sketch challenges! I did a quick one for the TGF relay... it's not that great, but the sketch helped me with my need for speed. It is a relay, after all!

Take care,
Lisa
