Sweet Sunday Sketch #251

Happy Sunday!!! Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. My beautiful family and I have just returned from a little holiday getaway, which was SO much fun and very relaxing.

I'm back into it now, although feeling VERY rusty!!!. I haven't stamped or crafted in about a month, so please, be gently on me today!

Here is my card for today:-

And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-

I've gone for my SAFE colours today... Crisp Cantaloupe, Naturals Ivory and Soft Suede... a combination that never seems to fail. I decided to FINALLY ink up my Choose Happiness stamp set today and combined it with another favourite, Kinda Eclectic, with a few splotches of Gorgeous Grunge. The colours I used for stamping were, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede. I've added some other staples, Burlap Ribbon, Vintage Lace, Crumb Cake seam binding and some bling!

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:
To finish off, I thought I'd share a quick pic of my BEAUTIFUL family... we take a family shot every year (although we were a little late last year, so it ended up being a New Year shot... shhhh), usually in the same kind of pose, so we can see how much we've changed over the past year... well mainly how much the girls have changed...!

Sooo.... Happiest of NEW YEARS to your families from mine!!!

Thanks for much for stopping by.
