Star-spangled 4th!

Two posts today?! Yup, my 3 older children are at Grammy's today so I got a chance to try the Card of the Week Sketch Challenge again - which incidentally is from the wonderful ladies over at Page Plans - which is where our Prettie Guest DonnaBaker is also a Guest Designer for the month of July - yea Donna!

Funny story . . . when I sat down to make this card this morning I thought "shoot I don't have any 4th of July dp!" At about 11:30 I heard the mailman beep his horn (which he only does when he has packages!) so I go down to see what goodies have arrived and lo and behold there's a wonderful little goodie box for me from Jillian!! As if that weren't exciting enough - I open it up and there is a fantastic DCWV Summer Mat Stack in there with some adorable patriotic paper - how awesome is that??!! So I could finish my card now! Thanks so much Jillian - I LOVE everything in it!! Here's a pic of the goodies, her cupcake card is just beautiful!!

Anyway, this card is totally different from my other sketch card - isn't that the wonderful thing about sketches? The possibilities are endless! This time I reached for my Kitchen Sink Stamps, Playful Stars, Swirly Hearts & Stars and Ready 4 Any Holiday (which has tons of sentiments for all those holidays that you usually don't see!). Now I know the ribbon on this is kind of tacky - my mom got it free when she ordered zippers or something like that - but I kept it thinking someday I would find a use for it . . . it just seems to say 4th of July! :)

Head over to Card of the Week and give the sketch a try and then upload it in the Gallery there - Susanna could end up featuring your card on Friday!!

See you tomorrow with a few pics of what I did this last weekend! :)
