get sketchy!

Helllllllllo!  Happy Saturday!  All over blog land I have been hearing about many of you covered in snow!  Me too.  It snowed A LOT today!  I am so thankful that my hubby does the shoveling! I have trouble with me neck and shoulders and have to watch how much I lift and what I do, if I shoveled I would pay for it dearly for a few days!  There may be a lot of snow, but at least it's not as cold as it was!  And at least it didn't rain like it was predicted!  I hope all of you who are covered and are having a hard time that it gets better fast!  I know that if your not used to it, it's overwhelming.

We have another great Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge for you!  Our sponsor again is a great online store Simon Says Stamps!  I am sure you know what a great online store they are! :>  And what a great prize they are offering today, $10 gift certificate to there store to our winner!

Our challenge is different today as we are Getting Sketchy!!!!  (I so love the name of our challenge!)  Jenny made a sketch for all of us to play with!

Today we are celebrating a sweet baby boy's first birthday!  It's always great to celebrate with friends!!!  I needed to make a birthday card for him.  I was planning on using this sketch to make a Valentine card and started.  I didn't like it.  Than it clicked for me and I used it for his birthday card:

I don't know if you can tell but I flip die embossed the clouds in the background!  (I used the back of the die to emboss the background)  And the clouds are felt!  I am really pleased with how this turned out! 

I hope you love this sketch and join us and play!  And I hope that if you don't love it, you love the challenge of it and play too!  :>  Please jump on over the Wee Memories blog here  for more information and to check out the rest of our wonderful DT's creations!
