Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 118

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, 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 SSSC118 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I'm typing this with only 10 minutes to spare -what a last minute day this has been!  We desperately needed to re-mulch the yard and had been waiting for the spring winds to finally die down.  Well, adding new mulch lead to digging out plants and poor dead rose bushes and I must be sadly out of shape, or getting old because I was wiped out!  Every time I get up from the couch I look like a crippled old woman until the kinks in my back  loosen up.  Seriously, that's sad.  Yard looks great tho!  haha! 

I'm using stamps from There She Goes for my card and wanted to get Lighten Up all inky again.  I love this set with all of its interchangable shades and stands and the sentiments are just hysterical!  The images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics and I added a few SU buttons in the corner. 

ACK - 2 minutes to go!  Just under the wire!!

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks for taking on the challenge this week!
