Sweet Sunday Hammock

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC74. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

Yesterday when I sat down to make this card the weather was absolutely gorgeous...sunny, hot, nice breeze but not humid...a perfect day. All I wanted to do was get outside, so as soon as I was done making this card I sat out on the deck to type up this post. I love having a laptop and wireless internet! :)

Given the beautiful weather, I reached for my Hangin' Out at the Beach set from Taylored Expressions. The hammock is paper pieced and the tree was already coloured (leftover from a previous project) so I don't have a photo of copic markers...sorry. But I did use Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the hammock and the sentiment. I used my June Key Ingredients for all the supplies on the card except the three gold Tiny Twinkles and the border punch I used is the open scallop.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your project on Karen's blog. Now let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.
