Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge No. 203 & a FREE .studio card banner

Sunday is a day of rest and I can’t think of a more restful thing for myself than to create something beautiful. I checked out a few challenges and decided to make the following:

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge No. 203

I like to have a mitt full of birthday cards on hand so I chose to make this my theme:



Designer Paper - ‘Apron Strings’ by Bella Road, various scraps and cardstock

Banner - ‘Eat Cake’ by Barbara Derksen (thats me!)

Silhouette Sketch Pen - black

Stamps - Fiskars


Gelly Roller sparkle pen

TomBow markers - N75, 553, 312, 969, 090,991

Embossing Folder


I’m giving you the FREE .studio cutting file so you can create your own “Eat Cake” banner.  I designed this banner with the word “Eat” for you to make with a sketch pen but the CAKE as a cut from the cardstock.  You will have to be sure to check you have the appropriate settings in your Silhouette Cameo, SD or Portrait. 


NOTE: I have updated some files into the FREE .studio TAB (top of my blog) so be sure to check.  I added:

  • Paper Cone Christmas Tree
  • Merry Christmas Doodles
  • Bow Tie
  • Lovely Lemon
  • Heart and Wings
  • Mrs Miles Love Bug

This makes them easy to find.  I will be working my way to add all the FREEBIES from 2013. 



Today’s 1 small THING is a tip from my household to yours.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I water plants I manage (somehow, no matter how careful I am) to get dirt outside the plant pot.  I thought and thought and came up with this solution -

Watering Jug & Baster


A jug, jar, pitcher or any other container for water (preferably with a handle) and a turkey baster.  This allows you to ‘portion out’ the amount of water each plant receives and also allows a greater control and direction of the watering. 

I know… your carpets and floors will thank me Smile


  1. I was going to buy a couple of cards for two baby showers happening tonight (two babies one shower) but was aghast at the prices. I came home and made computer cards!!!! Cheap, cheap ... that's me.

  2. Another TERRIFIC card my friend ...and a COOL cutting file too. Thanks so much for sharing it with me.:)

    Your tip with the turkey baster is awesome..but..I only have one live plant in the house. It was given to us when Daddy went to be with Jesus in 2001. I am surprised it is still alive.:) I will keep reading your tips though..they are most helpful.:)

    Huge hugs!!

  3. Wonderful card Sis, I love the papers and colours you used and of course the cut file is excellent.


Your comments are a blessing to me!
