MERCY'S SKETCH CHALLENGE - LOVEBIRDS

Hi all!! WOW!!! This weekend was soooo busy with Kayla's birthday event (it is always waaayy more than just a day, LOL!) kept me running around like a crazy woman!! She took all her friends to a place called Sky High which is a trampoline party place where they jumped for over two hours, had a pizza party, cake, presents, then back in the car for the two hour drive home! Once there, it was get dinner prepped while they karaoked in the family room on the Wii! They went non-stop until the wee hours of Sunday morning. Then, up for a pancake breakfast and they all left around noon on Sunday, whew!!!! So, I spent the rest of Sunday recovering and managed to finally get some stampin in this afternoon!! She had a ball, but I am very glad that birthdays only come once a year, LOL!!! So, this is the card I did for Mercy's Sketch Challenge this week - I got it done in the nick of time *wink*. I really liked the sketch but had a much harder time with it than I thought I would. I really wanted to use my new birdie punch so I built the rest of the card from that. It took me longer than usual, but I do like the way it turned out! The punch is a lot of fun and I see some fun scrappy pages in my future with this one!! Now, I am off to bed to get ready for work tomorrow and I am all off schedule with my posts but will have a new card posted on Wednesday since it is soooo late for this one, heeeheee!!! Love you all and thanks for stopping by!!! Smooches!!
