I'm so happy you stopped by for a visit!  I hope you are doing great!  The weather is gorgeous in the Chicago area today.  It in the upper 50's - and while that might seem a little chilly to the rest of the country (or at least the Southern half) in my neck of the woods its like summertime!  We have our windows open, jackets off, and are soaking up the sun!     I'm taking inventory of the yard - which plants made it through the winter, hoping to see some green here and there!   Even the dog is excited - as soon as I open the back door she runs for her ball and looks at me like.. "Let's PLAY!!!"  The ground is a little mushy but yep.. I'm feeling like it's cause for celebration too! 
Are you ready for a new Sugar Sketch at Sugar Pea Designs?  The big prize (a $75 gift certificate to the store) is awarded once a month, but we have a new sketch for you to try every week.   Of course we'd love for you to join us every week - but you only have to play along once a week to enter.  If you do decide to play more often - then you have a better chance to win the prize. 
If you love pattern paper like me this is a great sketch!   You can get your layers on and play with mixing and matching.  I was thinking of a lazy Sunday morning - grabbing a 'cuppa your favorite.. a few donuts, and reading the paper (or maybe doing the crossword puzzle?).  I stamped lots of rings on the newspaper in pink.. don't you hate when your glass sweats on your things?  

I mixed up a few sets for this one.  The donuts and sentiment are from Classroom Cupids, and the coffee rings and straw stamp are from Caffeine Addict.

The Coffee To Go Sugar Cut Die is awesome - it is perfect for hot or cold drinks - so you can add whipped cream and a straw, dome or flat cap.. and of course it has a sleeve!   The Stitched Flags Sugar Cut Die Set is perfect for cutting sentiments!

Need a little more inspiration? Check out what the rest of the team made!

Now it's your turn! I hope you'll join us at the Sugar Pea Designs Blog for the latest challenge!

Love this pretty card! The pink accents are grounded by the gray designer paper. Love the scallops and the little heart pin.
