Hello!! I have a super fast post today but a fun one from The Sweet Stop Sketch. This is such a fun sketch and I really hope you will play along. These cute little kids are from Tiddly Inks called Ticket to My Life Girl and Boy. This paper from K and Company Urban was perfect for the life theme and I loved the funky colors and pattern.
Happy Friday!! I am so sad to say that today is going to be my last post as a Sweet 'n Sassy Design Diva. I had to make the hard decision to cut back a little until school gets back into full swing...summer is hard with the little ones as many of you may know. I am looking forward to early bedtimes and more crafting time but I cherish the time I spend with them because they grow up so fast. I have loved every minute of being on this wonderful team of ladies, Korin is truly an angel and I am so thankful to her. The good news is I will still be able to share my SNS creations at The Sweet Stop and The Sweet 'n Sassy Connection.
I have been dying to use this cute digi stamp called Peek-a-boo Sophie, I paired it with the Flower Sentiments Digi . I am a huge fan of Anne Geddes and those cute flower babies and this reminds me of them.
Hello!! You can always count on my Sweet Stop Saturday post all though everything else has gotten a little in consistent this summer. I am trying to spend as much time as I can playing, swimming and having fun with the kids. When they get back to school there will be more time for crafting. I can't believe I will have 2 in elementary school already.

*I still have Blog Candy Here. I think I may have made it too confusing with the two candies...lesson learned. If you were already a Follower of mine you can leave a Comment for the chance to win the Gift Certificate to ATS. That is all you have to do just comment at the end of the post.
Hopefully you are still with me because here is this weeks card for The Sweet Stop SSS118.
I love this new stamp I got from Tickled Pink Stamps Lil Pinkett Tom Boyz Faith. I used the Digi version but it is also available in rubber so many cute ones to choose from. This so reminds me of my girls, so girly sometimes but love to play in the mud. I also love this paper from Echo Park called A Walk In the Park. The image was colored with Copics and I sponged the sky using my hand cut cloud templates. I used some Glossy Accents on the mud and shovel but as usual I can't get it to show up in the pics.
Hi everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend and are looking forward to a blessed week. I am loving all of these cute Rhubarb Teddy Bears that Korin has created. Today I came up with an idea to send those special wishes to Santa using Rhubarb's Candycane Digital Stamp.
I started by making a Crisscross Card and used My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter along with Bazzill cardstock. For the insert I typed up the "Wish List" on my computer and cut it to fit. This patterned paper was perfect to cut out the the trees and use them for a pull especially since I had three to send to Santa. As the kids find things they want for Christmas we will add them to the list and be ready to go. My kids were so excited when I showed them this and couldn't wait to get started... I just barely got the pictures taken:)
Welcome to the weekend!! I am sorry I have been missing this week, so much going on here at home. My husband had surgery on his shoulder on Tuesday and over all the surgery went well but there is a lot of recovery involved..poor guy. I hate to see him hurt like that and learning to do this things with one arm is difficult. I volunteered at Vacation Bible School this week and helped in the craft area, it was so much fun and I loved every minute of getting to work with the kids. I will definitely do it again next year it is so rewarding. As you might have noticed my Blog is getting a little make over... what do you think? I think it is fun and a little bolder. The navigation bars aren't up yet hope to get those working early next week.
* I have my One Year Blog Candy to give away I would love for you to win. You can get the details right HERE.
*All That Scraps just released a super cute Tree Swing Birgetta Digi HERE. I didn't get a card made with this weeks events but hope to get that done soon.
*Sweet 'n Sassy just released an adorable new Teddy Bear collection and he is called Rhubarb and you can find him HERE.
Yikes sorry that was a lot of information. Now on to The Sweet Stop Sketch 117 and this week there is a Spin... Christmas In July that means if you play a long there is a prize to be won.
I never got a chance to use this stamp I got this past winter from Sweet November Stamps called Neva, isn't she cute? The paper is My Minds Eye Signature Christmas Stack. I just love this color combo, one of my favorites for sure. I stamped "Let It Snow" but it is kind of hard to see because of the snow glitter.. I guess it works with the theme. The gems are from Recollection and I added a little distressing and Diamond Stickles for some glimmer.

Hi crafty friends!! We have made it to another weekend. I wish I could figure out why time seems to be going by so fast, there has to be a good reason right? So today I wish I could put myself in this card... I would love to find time to take a long relaxing bubble bath..sigh:)
Take Me Away
I started by using this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS116 and my image is from Tiddly Inks called Take Me Away. I added the floor with my Copic Multiliner and Copics. My girls said she is Rapunzel and I should have colored her hair more Blonde, LOL. Tangled is a favorite around my house these days. I highlighted the bubbles and then added a coat of Stardust Stickles for a little bubbly shimmer.
Hi everyone!! Hope your week is going well. I am trying to get ahead of things since next week is going to be a bit crazy for me. I am going to be helping out with Vacation Bible School and my husband is going to be having surgery on his shoulder on Tuesday. I hate for him to go through that but he is in so much pain right now it is definitly the best thing. Another thing happening on Tuesday is my One Year Blogoversary and that means my First Candy as well. It is very important to me that those of you who have followed me over the past year have a good chance to win so I am giving away a prize that will go to the Followers I have before the 12th only and then a second open to new and old friends....stay tuned:)
Today All That Scraps has a fun Digi that will be released tomorrow Friday July 8th. Say hello to Froggie Balloon Digi by Christine Wooden. I started by using July's Sketch For You To Try. The paper is Echo Park Summer Days and the clouds were cut out by hand on a glittery piece of felt. One day I will buy a cloud die cut:) The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Sentiments Magical Wishes.
Happy 4th of July weekend to everyone here in the states. We don't really have any big plans other than maybe a cook out. It has been so hot and dry here in Texas that there won't be any fireworks displays this year in our area at least...poor kids are little bummed about that. This week at The Sweet Stop we have a new sketch and also two new Sugar Babies please stop by the blog and welcome Shannon and Cathy. Sadly Denise and Dawn are leaving us and they will be truly missed but please don't forget to continue to visit them...hugs to you both.
I used Patriotic Cocoa by Sweet n' Sassy for my card and the paper is Creative Imaginations and as always I colored it with Copics.
Please visit the rest of The Sweet Stop Sugar Babies and see their beautiful creations and don't forget to join in this weeks sketch challenge.
