Sweet Sketch Wednesday 209

Welcome Friends!!  The first Wednesday in June...  Can you believe it!?!?!  Summer is almost here...  We had a mini heat wave with temps in the 90's this past weekend.  I was so thankful to have my Saturday free.  I had some reading to do and wanted out of the house, so I drove to the Cape and it was a good 20 degrees cooler!!  I actually needed a sweatshirt in the shade - sweatshirt weather is my kind of weather!!  Wonderful reading with the ocean breeze...

Well, enough with the weather report and on to our Challenge.  I LOVE being a part of the Design Team over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week our wonderful Sponsor is...

I chose this Fun "Birthday Cupcake" image -

I used retired paper from Close to My Heart, ribbon from my stash, Stickles and a few "gems" also from my Stash (oh how I love to re-stash my stash ;-)

Hope you will join us this week!!

Blessings to you!!


  1. Hi Sally, I do love this sketch and I adore what you did and how you mounted your Cupcake it looks like it's jumping off your card with a spring. Love your ribbon you've used, I'm a ribbon girl. Take care and so glad your having warmer weather and time to relax at the beach. Take care and wishing you a wonderful week.

  2. Sally, I absolutely love your card this week. Your combination of colors and papers are so perfect. I love how you popped your image and colored it. It has really made your card come to life!! Enjoy your visits to the Cape. It sounds like a wonderful place to go. Have a great week.
