Double Digit Birthday!

It's Saturday and that means there's a brand new sketch at The Sweet Stop.
Our niece Alyssa turned 10 last weekend and I thought Tiddly Ink's, Lilli Claire Party Time would be perfect for her birthday card. 

And I must be getting use to all these tilted panels in card designs because I didn't even once start hyperventilating while creating this card.  LOL  :)  I actually loved it!!  I also loved playing with some of Echo Parks newest papers This & That (Graceful)...such bright and fun colors.  The felt rose and numbers were both created with My Favorite Thing die-namics.

I added a little machine stitching with my brand new Janome Sew Mini sewing machine....can you say LOVE?!?!  It is the perfect little craft sewing machine and I could kick myself for waiting so long to buy it.  I found it to be a breeze to operate and although I'm still practicing, the slow speed is ideal for getting straight stitches.  I got mine for less than $50 HERE.


I hope you will find some time to check out what the other Sugar Babies have done with this weeks sketch and then play along with us.




Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
