Sweet Sunday Sketch #74

Happy Sunday!!! Hope you've had a fabulous weekend. Ours has been a little UP and DOWN this week. My little ones have been a little under the weather this week.. that was a DOWN, yesterday was by gorgeous hubby's birthday.. that was an UP.. but amongst all the UP from birthday celebrations, we had another DOWN with my girls being REALLY unwell last night!!! I'm hoping that tomorrow being the start of another week will be BRIGHT and CHEERY for the entire week at the Kale' abode!! See I can see the positive.. hahaha.
Anyway.. you surely didn't pop on over here to read about my ups and downs ... rather I'm sure to see what FABULOUS sketch Karen has given us to play along with this week. Oh and if this card seems a little strange, untoward, crazy, just plain.. UMMMMM... I'll put that all down to my complete lack of sleep last night.. but I digress.. I'm seeing the positive side.. right!! hahaha
Onto my card:-

And here is Karen's AWESOME sketch.. she's BRILLIANT isn't she????

I've used some Choc Chip, Taken with Teal.. I KNOW!!!! GASP!!!, Pumpkin Pie and Kraft..( sorry I couldn't resist).. there is however NO pink!!!!
All of the DSP is from my little stash of Sweet Pea DSP!!!! The stamp set is of course TRENDY TREES and I've used Teal, Pumpkin and Chocolate markers for that and the sentiment is from my Life Definitions and stamped in Choc Chip. The little extras I added are a splash of Choc Chip Ribbon.. see the little tag there.. hahaha, and some Linen Thread.

All in all a pretty simple card and one I hope my GORGEOUS hubby will like.. no it's not his Birthday card.. he got that one yesterday.. this is a JUST BECAUSE card.. a just because I LOVE him with all my heart and think he's AMAZING!!! Awwwww!!

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stamper's for some amazing inspiration:-
