The Sweet Stop - Sketch #201

Today I am going to start my post with question, How Do You Open Your Blog posts?  This is one of the most difficult things for me every time I sit down to write a post.  I sit here and try and think of a "whitty" or interesting way to start each post and what happens, my mind goes BLANK!  Seriously, every time I come up with nothing and then I just start my post with the same line I use on every other blog post.  So, how do you start your blog posts?  Do you use the same line every time?  Do you try and vary your opening line depending upon what you are posting for that day?  I would really love to know, variety is the spice of life and my opening lines are screaming for some variety right about now!

Today we have sketch #201 for you over at The Sweet Stop.  For my take on the sketch this week I used the CC Designs image, The Group.  I originally colored this image WAY BACK in the summer before school started and then never used it for a card.  It seemed perfect for this week's sketch, and it was!

First, let's start with the sketch we have for you this week.

And now, here's the card I came up with using this sketch.

Materials I Used For My project:
Copic Markers
ABC Buttons
MS small border punch

Here's a closer look at this colored group of kids.

The other Sugar Babies have created some absolutely fabulous cards to inspire you!  I hope you can stop by to check them out and of course enter our challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
