Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #53

Hey everyone! It's Friday again! Lots going on today too. First things first though, it's time for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge! Love these challenges!

This is a set from Lizzie Anne Designs called In The Treetop. I also used the set In The Background. The tree set does come with a swirly stamp, but I discovered that the background swirl goes perfectly on the tree too. I'm afraid as summer officially approaches, the busier it gets at my house. I'm going back to simple stampin' mode. It doesn't get much easier than this, but I loved how it turned out.

Here is Beate's Sketch:

Hope you can play along... or at least find some time to stamp this weekend. Are you finding it harder and harder to squeeze in some stampin' time? You'd think without homework and school activities, I'd have more time, but it's just the opposite. Oh well, summer only comes once a year right?

In a couple hours, I'll be back to post again for the Dirty Dozen monthly challenge... yah, can you believe it? I did both! I'm not telling you what time it really is..... thank goodness for scheduled posts. *wink*.... and *yawn*.
