Gettin' My Sketch On!

Hello! Hope you all had a relaxing Saturday. I spent the most wonderful day up at the lake today with my family. We swam, fished, barbecued, talked and even picked wild blueberries! Tonight I made the yummiest blueberry bread and it's delicious if I do say so myself!
The card above and the below I created using a sketch from the talented Miss Melissa Phillips of Lily Bean's Paperie. Her site is pure eye-candy to me and I check it often simply to be inspired! She's having a giveaway this week but you have to make a card using the sketch. I had so much fun creating these using the new kit I got from the Keep In Touch Card Shop. I found out about that from Melissa, too, and now I am a subscriber! Such an enabler! And these cards were made using the new Making Memories clear stamps. I just had to have them because of this bird stamp. I love birds! But isn't it awful to buy a whole sheet of stamps just for one small one? Oh well. I think it's too late to try and justify my scrap habit!

Sounds like you had a lovely day out too on Saturday!! I wished I was with you picking "wild blueberries" by the lake. Although, my luck I would have had a (yellow jacket) sting!!

Love your card Lauri...great colors and so bright and happy!!
