Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try, SFYTT, which is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique!!

Today's sketch is SO much fun, and I used the DARLING Lattes For Two digi image from The Stamping Boutique for my card today.

Now, I WISH this is what I look like prego right now, but unfortunately, which just two weeks to go, I am WAY bigger than this Princess Jennifer Latte! I thought this image was perfect for me since you all know how much I LOVE my lattes...can't wait to have a big ole' cup of caffeine!!

All the patterned paper on my card today is from Mitten Weather by Cosmo Cricket, which I think is SUCH a fun collection that is not just for holiday cards.

The sentiment, "There's going to be a latte problems if I don't get my coffee soon", is from the Daily Grind by There She Goes, and it totally cracks me up! I cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and layered it over Scalloped Circle Nestabilities cut from Herbal Garden Medium.

I added three brads to my focal panel, and all of my layers were sewn on my sewing machine. The three vertical strips of polka dot patterned paper were attached with some more funky stitching.

Check out what the AMAZING SFYTT sisters have done with this sketch right here!!
