Yay It's Saturday!!!

Woo-hoo! Finally Saturday!
Is it just me or was this the longest week ever?!

Now we get to play!
Here's Lauren's new sketch for today... I seem to be in a birthday card mood lately, so here's what I came up with...
The "Bella" image is from a swap I did a few months back. You can see another card I did with this same image here.
I went with SU's Baha Breeze for the card base and then colored the main image with my Copics. The white background was a little harsh, so I sponged with Creamy Caramel along each edge of the white panels.

The baking themed pattern paper is from Flair Designs. I picked it up sometime last year thinking that I'd use it for my annual Christmas cookie swap invitations. I came up with this invitation instead and didn't remember that I had this paper until after I cranked out 40 of them!
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this on a regular basis... I hope you're inspired to play along with us!
Be sure to leave a link if you do so I can check out your creation.
Pop on over to these blogs to see what the rest of the gals on the sketch team did.
Alicia, Dawn, Kim, Kirsten, Kristy, Maria, Kendra & Tamara

Hope you all have a fab weekend! I'll be back on Monday with some sneak peeks at the projects I'm working on for my Valentine's class.
