Well happy Saturday everyone! I am in the middle of a full 24 hours by myself! Can you believe it? My husband had a hockey game through work with the branch in Canada and my in-laws are back from Florida and they took the kids! Let me tell you...it is fantastic! I got the house cleaned up and it has stayed clean for longer than 10 minutes, I got myself some yummy Thai food, and I started tackling my ever-looming photo album project (working on 2007...yup that far behind...don't judge me!). It has been good so far and I have a little more time before I pick up the kids. Pretty much exactly what I needed after the last month of single parenthood!
So I pretty much took the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #49 at face value...in other words I stuck to the sketch almost completely! And since I have been sick this week and my mojo was missing a tad, I kept my card on the simple side...hopefully still worthy though! I printed the Precious Baby digi stamp from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps (how cute is that image?!) on Whisper White cardstock and simply colored in parts of it with my SU! markers. I used a blender pen and ink pad on the tree trunk because it was a bigger area that I felt needed a little more definition. I added black brads in 3 of the corners as dictated by the sketch...see I told you I stuck to the sketch! The red panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Heart Blocks embossing folder and the pattern paper was the retired "" set from Stampin' Up!. The sentiment came from the Practically Perfect stamp set by Verve Stamps.
Well this week is the last week for some of the Sugar Babies. We will be introducing some new Babies next week, but please give some extra special attention to Ann, Jodi, and Nicole as they share their last cards as Sugar Babies! Then check out the rest of the creations by the rest of us: Audrey, Candace, Julie, Lisa, Nancy, Renata, and the Sugar Mama, Korin! Better yet, try the sketch out for yourself and link it up to the Sweet Stop Blog! Have a fantastic rest of the weekend and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
