February Sketch from Sugar Creek Hollow

I am back from my trip to Cayo Largo, Cuba and the weather was fabulous. Of course, I got too much sun despite all the sun screen. I read 2 1/2 books, taught my friends how to play cribbage and ate way too much. Now I am sitting here in my warm and fuzzies wishing I could have stayed longer. Oh well, it will be fun to craft again.

It is Sensational Saturday again at Sugar Creek Hollow and today we have a sketch to challenge you with.

I decided to create a birthday card for my Sister-in-Law using this February Violet Label from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.  Unfortunately for me but fortunately for her I won't be able to give it to until after her birthday because she and my brother are also relaxing in the Caribbean.  We sure get sick of the snow about now here in Canada:)

  1. Sounds like a nice relaxing trip. We LOVE to play cribbage, when we go to my in laws that is all we do, kids play too. It is such a fun game.
