Magical Monday - Sketch

The challenge this week is a sketch brought to you by "me" at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog; There's Magic In The Air. I love sketches so that is what I brought to the challenge. You can flip, rotate or stretch it as along as you can still see the initial sketch in your project. I am also using the freebie image "Sending Cheer Your Way" by Paper Cupcakes; which I might add is only available for free for the next 48 hours.  I colored the image with Bic Mark-its. I made the rose with my mom one day way back with one of her punches and thought it would be perfect for this card that I knew would be hand delivered to a special friend on her birthday. There was no way that that flower was going to make it through the mail in a regular envelope! I did an easel, because I thought the sketch would be perfect for that that type of card.
If you have never made an easel card before you can find the instructions HERE.

Here is the sketch:

My Card:

Well, today is my sweetie's birthday and he took off work and we are going to run away for the day and do something just the two of us.  Not sure what that is yet, but right now I just don't care what we do as long as we just get out the two of us and have a little fun. 

I had a great weekend.  The weather was just perfect.  The birthday party I hosted for my friend was full of lots of fun, good friends, good food and a perfect night in my book.  Went to church, great message and always love to see my church family weekly.  Got to spend part of the day with my mom, dad and sister and Jim.   Eric visited his mom while I visited mine (we splited and divided to save same time in our day) and then we went to the nursing home together to see Eric's step-mom.  Then I came home and played a yard game with Avery, then fell in the hammock and took a little nap, which was very much needed after this busy week.  It was a great day in all and now I have tomorrow to look forward to as well.

Thanks for lurking by and may your week hold much JOY!
