It's a Happy Day with Sweet Sketch Wednesday & Echo Park!

Hello Friends! Happy Monday! Ok, so I am one of those that is happy when Monday arrives. With my DH deployed, weekends can be a bit of a depressing snooze-fest. Not that we are actually sleeping, but I am sure you get the picture. So, I am glad Monday has arrived, and I hope everyone who had to endure hurricane Irene over the weekend has come out fairly unscathed....

Anyway, on to today's card.... I am very happy with this one! It cheers me up just lookin' at it! My BFF, Cassie, sent me this adorable TE stamp set called Downtown Diva which coordinated so well with the retro Echo Park dp - Happy Days. It reminds me of the old soda fountain in the little town we lived in when I was in 4th & 5th grades. I loved riding my bike there in the summer for a treat.

The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday .. how perfect for a "Sweet" card like this one! ( sweet shoppe.. sentiment- you're so sweet ... hehe ) I would love to hear what you think! Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great week ahead. :o)
