The Sweet Stop Sketch #219

Good morning, I am happy to say that we are enjoying a day or two of reprieve from that awful humidity.  The windows are open and the air is absolutely comfortable, summer like.  This is what July should be, with a few days of humidity in between.  My son and I went outside, took a walk, picked some berries, and just enjoyed the absolutely beautiful day we had yesterday!  I don't think I could ask for anything more.  Unfortunately, the humidity and high temperatures are due to return tomorrow.  Of course this means more air conditioning and being cooped up inside, again, in the middle of summer.  Yuck!  It's amazing how much our day is determined by the weather.

Today I have a new card to share with you using our new sketch at The Sweet Stop.  For my card I used a Phindy's Place image, Bathing Beauty.

Here's a look at this week's sketch.

And, here is my card using the sketch.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Spellbinder's Grand Circle and Scalloped Circle dies
Fiskars Punch
EK Success Beach Border Punch
Wild Orchid Flowers

Now it's your turn to play along with us, but before you do please take a moment to stop by the blog and check out the projects created for you by the other Sugar Babies.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
