My sister found these really cute punches the other day when we were out shopping. Judi and Nancy took the ones and then we saw another one similar and well I took it so fast and said "Sweet." Judi and Nancy didn't even have a chance. It was the last one too. I did however say, "well, if you want it go ahead and I'll take what you have in your hand." Anyway they let me keep it and I have used it below on my card.

I think it turned out so sweet!!! Perfect for my sketch this week. We are being sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique  this week. Sally Ann has the sweetest images.  I really loved this darling girl holding that sweet cupcake. How sweet it is when your card turns out just how you want it to turn out!

My paper came from an old  Fiskars package of paper from when I was doing some design work for Fiskars. I felt like it was just perfect for this image. You will want to make sure you run over and see all the sweetness at Sweet Sketch Wednesday created by the design team.  Then head on over to Digi Stamp Boutique and check out her sweet digis there.  While you at it I love reading all your sweet comments and want to thank you for them.
