Happy Saturday!

Goodness gracious, is it really September already? I know we all feel it... time passes too quickly. And it seems to really start speeding up once September comes. I see folks counting down the days to Christmas on their blogs and I have to close my eyes! LOL

Today is a very special day. Not only is it time for another wonderful Sketch Saturday challenge, but it's my first post as Guest Designer for Meljen's Designs for the month of September! Meljens' images are ADORABLE, just my cup of tea!

My card features Lazy Susan Buggies, which is not only adorable but so much fun to color! Our sketch this week is by the wonderfully talented Jeanette Comerford, our hostess for this week's challenge at Sketch Saturday. You will LOVE working with this sketch!

The DP and chipboard accent are from the Togetherness collection by Cosmo Cricket, which I love love love!

I also followed Meljen's Designs Challenge #23, which is to use stripes. So fun!

I hope you'll join us for BOTH challenges. Be sure to stop by the Sketch Saturday blog and the Meljen's Designs Challenge blog for some amazing eye candy and inspiration!

Have a wonderful day, my friends... and for my US friends, a fun and SAFE Labor Day holiday weekend!
