The Sweet Stop Sketch #211 - Sketch With A Spin

Good morning everyone!  Can you believe it is Saturday again?  It always amazes me how those droll, cold days of winter seem to drag on and on and the warm, bright, cheerful days of spring and summer fly by without a thought to them as they pass.  Of course the sunny skies, warm weather and ability to open our windows and say "Ahhhh" makes their quick departure worth it in the end.  A little sunshine can go a long way, ya know!

Today we have a new sketch for you at The Sweet Stop.  This week we have a sketch with a spin and the spin is "Going Buggy."  I'm actually pretty excited that I was able to keep up with all of my DT duties this week.  School is very busy and we have had a lot going on here, as always, and for a few moments I didn't think I would be able to.  Stubbornness (my crafting is my only me thing,) and determination paid off and so that leaves me with my current project for today's sketch.

First, the sketch, of course.

And now my project using my sketch.  On my card I used the Tiddly Inks image, Happy Bee Day, from one of Christy's clear sets.  This image was just perfect for our spin this week.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
EK Success Punch
Distress Ink Pad, Wild Honey (on my flowers)

Isn't this week's sketch just fabulous?  Of course they all are, but what a great spring sketch and I love this week's spin.  There are so many cu-ute stamps out there that will help make your sketch pop, don't you think?  Of course you must give it a try to find out, so now it's your turn.  Once you've created your project link it up and play along.  Please don't forget to check out the fabulous projects by the rest of the SUGAR BABIES.  Trust me, you'll be glad that you did.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
