weekend sketch challenge

Happy Saturday! Last night was my big night out for my birthday and let me tell you, it was so much fun. Michael took me to the Melting Pot and we ate waaaay too much, but it was worth it. You can't go to the Melting Pot and not have any chocolate, so we pigged out! Then we headed on over to Starbucks to play a couple games of backgammon and chat. It was so nice to have dinner all to ourselves and not have the kids, such a nice break for me. Then to top it all off, Michael gave me gift cards to 4 of the places I love to shop - The Treasure Box (LSS), Starbucks, Kohl's, and Barnes & Noble. I love this man. He told me this morning that he had looked at getting me a Cricut and had major sticker shock when he saw how much they are. That made me laugh.

Alright, on to the card for today. It's the weekend, so this means Beate's sketch challenge. I thought I'd do a new twist on the layers and not actually add layers, but 'underlayers'. Is that a word? It is now... Anyway - I've been wanting to do a window card for a while and thought it would be perfect for my brother-in-law. His birthday is Monday. Another super simple card that looks cool! Okay, well that's what Michael told me after I brought the down for him to write birthday wishes in it. So it's approved! Ha! The designer series paper behind the window is mostly there so my hubby doesn't write into the view of the window, but I like the look it adds to the card too.

I hope you all are having a great weekend - we had snow this morning, so soccer was cancelled. The sun is shining now and so goes spring in Colorado.

Thanks for stopping by today!
