Happy Birthday, Sweet Anna!

Happy Saturday!  Don't ask me how, but I have done the wrong sketches for two weeks in a row!  I'm sure that being away at convention and missing a week did not help the situation.  I am scrambling to get my posts done before I go to Michigan for a visit with children and grandchildren, so I don't have time to redo them.  Oh well, I'm just gonna go with the flow!

Here is the Utah Diva's sketch for July 13, UDISC249. It was created by the fabulous Ruthie Burkey.  (Hi, Ruthie!)  You can find all of the cards and designers here.

Here's my card.  My sweet granddaughter, Anna, will soon celebrate her seventh birthday!  I wanted to have a card all ready to go for this special occasion.

Details ~
  • Paper ~ Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, Birthday Basics DSP
  • Ink ~ Black Staz-On, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit markers
  • Stamps ~ Sketched Birthday
  • Accessories ~ Decorative Label Punch

When I was at convention, I got a couple of swaps using this adorable paper.  Knowing Anna's birthday was coming, I knew it was the perfect thing to use for this sketch challenge.  The Gumball Green banner is the reverse side of the balloon design, and I used my hexagon punch to make the perfect flag end!  I've said it before, and it is worth repeating ~ one of the best things about Stampin' Up! is our beautiful coordination across the entire product line.  Don't forget, you can shop on line 24/7 in my store and have your goodies delivered right to your door!

Take some time to do something creative this weekend!  You'll be happy you did.
