The Sweet Stop Sketch #208

 Here we are at Saturday again.  Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday have all passed by and Saturday is here again.  What's so great about Saturday, well besides the new sketch from The Sweet Stop.  Saturday means no alarm clock, not that I wake up with mine anyway, I am almost always up earlier.  It also means more time to spend with the family, crafting time, taking a breath time and simply spending time around this place I call home.  Of course, by Saturday our home has become just a little bit of a disaster after a week of work, appointments and running with the kids.  Some weekends I take care of that and others, well I try really hard to pretend I don't see it.  That strategy works for my kids, why shouldn't it work for me?  Now that the warm weather is slowly approaching Saturday also means spending time outside and getting my gardens ready for flowers and veggies.  Just a few more weeks and the warmer weather should be here to stay, fingers crossed.

The best part of my Saturday is sharing our new sketch and my project using that sketch with all of you.  This week is Sketch #208 and is just as fabulous as the rest of them!  What is the sketch?  Well, look below and see.

The image I used for this week's project is from the Sweet and Sassy store and is a digital image called, Birds and Roses.  Just perfect for this time of year.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Spellbinder's Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle dies
Wild Orchid Roses
EK Success Punch

Just before I colored this image I was lucky enough to see a blue bird outside of my window.  I was so excited because although blue birds live in our area we don't see them very often.  Seeing this beautiful bird inspired my coloring for the birds in this image.

Of course the other Sugar Babies have created projects for this sketch as well and they are just AMAZING!  I hope you can take the time to stop by and check all of them out.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
