The Sweet Stop

Hi everyone, Happy Saturday!  I hope you are enjoying a little extra pajama time today and a few extra snuggles with the honey, the kids, or both.  Weekends really just need to be a time to relax and take a deep breath after the long work week.  Now, of course that isn't the case, we all spend the weekend catching up on our errands, household work and spending time with the kids before we crash again and the new work week begins.  But hey, that vision of relaxation is a good dream, isn't it?

Today I am writing my second post as part of the design team at The Sweet Stop.  In fact, today's card doesn't even have a colored image on it.  Can you believe it?  I don't think I've ever posted a card without some type of image on it, I love my coloring and my images.  This sketch called for something a little different this time and in the end I liked the finished card.

Here's the sketch for our challenge this week.  It was tricky for me at first, simpler always seems to be trickier, doesn't it?

And of course here is my take on the sketch for this week.

I am such a terrible photographer.  My images always come out lopsided or crooked.  The harder I try to take a straight image the worse the crooked angle becomes.

Materials Used on My Project:
Silver embossing Powder
Heat gun
MS Snowflake Punch

I hope you can play along with us!  As always you can find more inspiration from the rest of the Sugar Babies if you stop by our challenge blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
