A Flower for You

Well hello from the frigid SOUTH! Yup that is right I am on vacation in Florida (visiting grandparents) and it is literally hitting freezing temperatures! What in the world? We came down hoping for some sun and a little warmth and we have only had one day out of four like that so far! Here's hoping we get at least one more before we have to go home! The story of getting down here will have to come on another day...and oh is it a doozy!

Anyway, it is once again Sweet Stop Time! This week's sketch, Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #43, is another great one! Now since I am writing this while on vacation, I am hoping that I remember all of the details that I need to....so forgive me if I miss something! First up, the image is A Flower for You, a digital image form Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...such a cute little bug! I printed him on watercolor paper and watercolored him using ink pads and an aquabrush (yup still getting the hang of this). I cut out the bug including the antennae and then filled in the antennae with a black marker. I watercolored and cut out a second flower, popped it up on my original bug, and then added Stardust Stickles to the flower. The bug was layered on Very Vanilla and then on top of Bashful Blue that I added Stardust Stickles to the outer edges to. Sorry I have no idea (without being home) where my patterned paper is from. My Always Artichoke half circle is stamped with the retired By Definition background stamp and layered on a half scallop circle of Chocolate Chip. The card base is made up of Natural Cream cardstock (I think that is what it is called) and a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock. Final touch was the Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon with a small scalloped strip of Always Artichoke.

Well I think I got it all! Now go check out the beautiful creations by the other Sugar Babies: Ann, Audrey, Candace, Jodi, Julie, Lisa, Nancy, Nicole, Renata, and the Sugar Mama, Korin. Better yet, create a card with the sketch and link it to the Sweet Stop Sketch Blog...you never know, you could be selected to be the next guest designer! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

I know what you mean...I am in South Mississippi and it is COLD! We didn't really get snow, just a few tiny flakes. But, areas just ten miles north of here got quite a bit. I love your card today! That bug is too cute! Have a great weekend! :) Stay warm!

Cute card! You should of come to CA because it is sunny and warm here. This is unusual weather for us. We usually have fog and cold. I hope your trip home goes smoothly and have warmer weather.
