Celebrating a blog just for the Sweet Sunday Sketches, the latest challenge is "choose your own sketch." As a recent participant in the SSS challenge, I went back a few weeks to Sketch #250 for my choice. As it turns out, it was the first sketch of the year. I made the card for a college friend of long ago who fell and broke her knee this week while walking her dog. It makes me hurt to think of that kind of injury. The tulips and sentiment are digital images from Power Poppy, colored with SU markers.

Above is the inspiration tag for the current Tag You're It challenge, created by designer Marybeth Lopez. It's a CASE of one of her earlier cards.
Flower is "Cheerful" from Penny Black, colored with SU's Blendabilities and "painted" with Glossy Accents. The "happy" die is from Simon Says stamp. The tag was embossed in a wood grain folder from SU.

This is my third post today; I was terribly far behind on challenges that I like to do, so it became an intensive card-making session. Freshly Made Sketches features a new sketch by Jen B.
Designer paper from Teresa Collins' Sweet Afternoon collection; leafy die from Poppy Stamps. (Unidentified sentiment)
It was fun to pull out some spring colors for a change, although I'm always a fan of dark and dramatic, too. The Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge worked out in papers from Teresa Collins' "Sweet Afternoon" collection, accented with three layers of the Lawn Cut "Smile" and a fabric butterfly from Petaloo.
