Sweet Stop Sketch 94



Hi all! Here's my card for today's Sweet Stop Sketch. It's a 5.25" square card. I stamped the Good Friends image twice. One image was fully colored and cut with the circle nestie. Then I colored up a second umbrella, cut that out with scissors, and glued it over the base layer. The sentiment and main image are both up on foam tape and I added Stickles on different parts of the umbrella and clothing.



I know my posts have been few and far between these past two weeks....kid sickness, snow days galore, birthday get-togethers, and life....well, it messed with my creativity enough that I just didn't even feel like stamping. That's going to change though because next week I'll be hosting a week-long challenge on the Penny Black Blog and I have FOUR projects all set and ready to show you Monday through Thursday.

In fact, right now there's a sketch challenge going on that's being hosted by Miss Jenyfur, and you have until Sunday night to upload your cards/projects in the Flickr Gallery for a chance to win THREE Penny Black stamps or stamp sets! Check out the details RIGHT HERE on this post.
Have a great day!
