Happy New Year and Some "Sweet" News

Happy New Year my crafting friends!! I hope 2011 is a blessed year for everyone.  I am so excited to tell you that I am an official Sugar Baby for The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog.   I am always using and playing along with Korin's wonderful sketches and I can't wait to share my cards with you.  Korin not only comes up with awesome sketches but her Sweet and Sassy stamp line is so cute.  This is also a wonderful way for me to start using my neglected rubber stamps, which is going to be one of my New Year's resolution.  Here is my first card using sketch SSS89.



This stamp is by Penny Johnson called Bird and Bear.  I was getting tired of snowflakes so I decided to do something a little springy.  The paper is Basic Grey's Koshi, the flower is Sizzix and the flourish I made with my new Christmas present a Cricut ,woohoo!! I colored everything with Copics and added a little Crystal Stickles. I am going to try and be better about keeping up with Copic colors and maybe start listing them again.


I hope that you will join us for the sketch challenge and stop by and meet the new Sugar Babes, what a talented group of ladies.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Signature Final
