SSS41 Sweet Stop Challenge


My hubby took off a half-day yesterday from work, came home, packed up the kids and left me alone at home for 48 hours or more!  I MEAN, I can't even fathom how much I am going to get done this weekend!!  I have been working on my jewelry blog and as it stands it WILL be up and running on Monday!  I still have tons to do for it, so I guess it really IS a good thing my hubby left me here to work!

AS USUAL, today's post is for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge BLOG!!  Try and play along!  Korin picks the next Guest Designer for the entire following month out of the entries, so get your mojo moving and create something based on this sketch HERE!

My card is using some My Mind's Eye papers, except for the swirl at bottom which is Basic Grey (Nook & Pantry set), the oval punches are by Stampin' UP!  The squares are made using Spellbinders' Nestibilities and the WONDERFUL OREGON RAIN DROPS are by a new company I have come across called PINK HEDGEHOG Paper~Crafts, I just got a bunch of colors (19!!) and I didn't even get them all!  They are super clear and vibrant, LOVE THEM! 

OH, I guess you may want to know that the image and sentiment are by Whimsie Doodles HERE; {In all CAPS, use PROMOCODE 'NICOLE20' at checkout and get 20% OFF your total purchase in the entire store!  I LOVE SALES, don't you!?!?!}

Well, thanks for stopping by and check back on Monday for the debut of my jewelry blog and also an exciting announcement and BLOG HOP, TOO!


Don't forget that on February 1st this blog is changing to {gottahavepaper(dot)blogspot(dot)com}  Make note of it now, or add yourself as a follower so you don't lose me!!  Thanks!
