The Sweet Stop Sketch #226

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your Saturday morning!  After a little crafty time I will be off to the grocery store and then some cleaning around the house.  I also plan on spending a little time with my boys and then more crafting, if there is any time left, of course.  This is the last hurrah for the summer so hopefully we will get a little outside time before the weather begins to cool off in the next few weeks.  Until then I have a card to share with you using this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop.  Believe it or not I had another family birthday this month, this time my father-in-law, so of course I have another birthday card.  The Sweet Stop sketches are so versatile and have been perfect for each of my birthday cards.

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

And, here's my card using this week's sketch.  My father-in-law is an amazing gardener so I used the Mo's Digital Pencil image, Gardener guy, for my card.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Spellbinder's Oval and Scalloped Oval die
SU sentiment stamp

Now it's your turn to follow our sketch and play along.  You'll find more samples using today's sketch at the challenge blog.  The other Sugar Babies have created some amazing projects to inspire you.  I hope you can stop by and check them out!
Have a wonderful Saturday!
