Sweet Stop Time

Happy New Year to all of ya! I hope that you had a wonderful New Year's Eve. We had a fun party filled with 16 kids that were ages 6 and under and 18 adults! It was definitely a dose of birth control for anyone that is not used to that many crazy kids running around. But the party went well and I was very excited that my balloon drop worked for the kids. My idea for a dance party with a song for each decade didn't work out so well...I made the CD and had great songs, but the kids were not so into it...mainly the little boys. Although my son normally would join me for any dancing, he wouldn't last night because his friends did not want to...poor little thing succumbed to peer pressure.

So on to the topic at hand...this is my first week as a Sugar Baby for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog! I am so excited for this to begin and I hope that you will join me each week! My card used a hostess set from Stampin' Up!, Asian Artistry. I stamped it in black ink and then colored it using a blender pen and ink pads. I used the grassy image from the set to create the strip of cardstock on the left side....I liked the subtleness that it gave to the side of the card. I created the circular part of the card with a bowl and cut it out by hand. I lined that then with White Gel Pen dots.

The only extras that I added were the cool ribbon (from WalMart of all places), the ticket corner punch to only three sides of the stamped image (makes the sentiment stand out a little bit more), and Stickles to the middle part of the flowers for a little added bling! So now check out the Sweet Stop blog for all of the details for Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #37 and show us what you create with the sketch! Also check out the awesome cards by the other Sugar Babies and leave them some love: Ann, Audrey, Candace, Jodi, Julie, Nicole, Renata, and the Sugar Mama herself, Korin.

Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

A very pretty card. I like the way you only punched 3 corners and also the white dots around the curved paper. TFS
