Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 230

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  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). 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 SSSC230 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

As you may have noticed, I've been a little bit absent here on the old blog.  We had a very busy July and I needed to take a small break from stamping so that I didn't turn into that crazy lady who grows a second head.  You all know what I mean, right?  We took the kids to Disneyland last week and had a fabulous time with lots of adventures - and it went by way too fast.  I'm happy to be home and getting back into some sort of routine again and I will definitely do the happy dance when school starts back up!

On to my card.  Yep!  I have a card this week.  It may not be my best work, but I'm waiting for that mojo to return.  Ha!

I bought a couple new things from My Favorite Things - this is Delicious Birthday.

I broke out my Now & Then "Mildred" paper from MME and picked out some patterns that I loved.  I used some patterned paper to stamp the sentiment on as well and then cut out the little balloon.  I added some hemp cord for the string and pinched it with my fingernails to make it curl a bit.

That is it for me today.  I do hope you will hop around and see all the deliciousness the Sweet Sunday Stampers have to you too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
