Hello

Hello friends, I decided to play along with the SCS sketch challenge today using Scribble Flowers stamps and dies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper to create a background layer and embossed them.  I had planned on coloring them but liked the look of the black and white.

Hooray it's your birthday!

Despite waking up feeling like yuck this morning I managed to finish a card I started yesterday.  Love this image from Art Impressions, I colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye and DCWV.  The blue paper stars and oval frame are glitter paper- it is hard to see in the picture.  
Sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Where has the year gone?  Well, we couldn't go through the month without a Christmas in July celebration at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps so today we are having a hop showcasing some of the wonderful Christmas Stamps that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has to offer- so many to choose from!  I decided to work with SNOWY HELLO, I am a lover of snowmen and this set is perfect for card making all winter and especially at Christmas. 
For my first card I used somewhat traditional Christmas Colors, I colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye.  
My second card is more of a wintertime fun card using paper from the same pad of My Minds Eye Paper, I colored with copics again and did a bunch of stitching on this one.    Christmas set of their choice (in stock) from the Sweet 'n Sassy Store "You will be able to find all of the team participant blogs at the end of this post. Simply click on their name and you will be taken to their blog. The list will be on each person's blog, so no need to hit the back button. Just look for the next blog in the line-up and off you go!
