The Sweet Stop SSS39


HOWDY PEEPS!  AH, SATURDAY!!!!!  I love Saturdays!  It is the only day that I get to sleep in, so that is why I am prescheduling this post to go up Saturday morning EARLY while I sleep instead of me actually posting it! LOL!  Sneaky ME!

This week's sketch (with a SPIN!) SSS39 at THE SWEET STOP really challenged me!  You all know I am a bit 'off' (HA!) which is probably why I never create anything symetrical!!  And it didn't help that I fell face-forward down the stairs on Thursday!  So, please forgive me for my card today!  It is a bit simple, even for me!  But not everything has to have layers and be fussy, right?  Just agree with me so I feel better! LOL!

SSS39 was to have a spin of JUST a sentiment, NO IMAGE!  GASP!  It's okay, really, settle down now! Shocking right?  I know!  I hadn't created a card without an image in like FOREVAH!  So, that probably also didn't help me in meeting this challenge either!  I ended up using this sweet yet sassy saying from Stampin' Up's  HARD TO SAY stamp set.  Cute, huh?  {Click on pic to enlarge} I also have been wanting to use this Ambrosia paper set by Basic Grey, especially this butterfly paper, but never knew what to use it with!  Well, VOILA!

I do like how it turned out, I guess.  Simple, clean, good colors, followed the sketch, too!  I think that bonk on the head stirred up some drama in my mojo, but it was great getting back to the basics of sentiment only cards, I had nearly forgotten how to do them!

See you tomorrow!

Oh, I really like the look of this one! Very crisp. It's a good choice when you want the focus on the sentiment - plus this is a card I could create myself from the sketch - ha!

Your simple and clean card caught my attention and made me come scope out your blog. I absolutely love it and now have to go buy both the paper and the stamps, lol.

Howdy!
