A Sublime Sunday Sketch!

Sometimes I'm really sad about Stampin' UP retiring the In Colors. Don't ya think they should be allowed to hang around for a bit forever?

Well, I used last years' In Colors, which are now retired....but I thought they would be perfect for this card. I'm doing Dylan's Birthday invites with this same Submarine, and same colors. He's turning 5 in 10 days.....Wow! I remember going into labor with him and thinking, uh-oh, I better get these birth announcements finished.....luckily I was able to finish, as he was a 41 hour labor. It took forever, which is just like how he still is. Can't get that boy to do anything quickly!

Enough with memory lane.....just happy that I finished a Sweet Sunday Sketch on Sunday! I used the dimensions that Karen put on her blog....6.5 x 3.25. I think it worked out pretty good. Now I can go make some Chocolate Ganache! Yum!

The Goods:
Stamps: A Muse
Ink: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point; all SU
Paper: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango textured CS, Pacific Point
Extras: Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point Striped Ribbon, Soft Swirls embossing cartridge, copics,

Very cute Amanda! I cant get my little boy to get in a hurry about anything either. He takes an hour most days to eat his breakfast! :) Thanks for the input on the etsy thing! I appreciate it! You are right about the contract thing.. I just need to do it!

this is so cute! perfect for birthday invites! :)
I concur about the in-colors, although I heard a rumor that SU! might make all of them they have brought out into their own set. So there is still hope!
