Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 176


It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC176 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!

I will be announcing the next Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you will be joining the design team for SSSC177!






It was a nice break to stamp a little bit yesterday after helping my daughter sort through and organize all of her Legos.  Oh.  My.  Word.  I'm so glad we finished and now I can enjoy walking in her room without the pain of stepping on those little buggers when I put away laundry - yay!

I got out my By the Letters Die-namics and some Love Me 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  I didn't have a whole bunch of time to stamp, so I didn't add lots of bells and whistles to this one, but I love the way the sentiment takes center stage.



I cut out a Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics in Natural Card Stock and then debossed it using the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder.


I cut out the letters in Kraft Card Stock and then used the patterned paper to cut out the Rustic Hearts Die-namics and the smaller Layered Heart Border Die-namics.



I used a sentiment from Lollipop Additions - Love in Kraft Ink inside the card and added another Rustic Hearts Die-namics there as well.

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have more gorgeous creations to show you, so be sure to stop by and see:
You can find these fabulous items in the MFT Boutique:

Oh you are a saint... sorting through Legos is an event. I need plenty of coffee to do that. Girl you are killin' me with these new MFT products. LLOOOOOOVVVEEEE them. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Some of them are out of stock right now. Boo! Another great sketch. I had *fun* with this one. Oh wait, I have fun with ALL of them!

I LOVE all the love paper in the background! And I've never thought to mix natural and Kraft card stocks...great idea! It looks amazing!

Angie said...

Sweet sketch! I hope to play! You made me smile about the Lego's! Long after my kids put away their Lego's I would find them downstairs because the cat would PLAY with them! It was a sad day when our son said he no longer wanted any Lego's in his room! Nice not to step on them, though! :)
