The Sweet Stop

Good morning everyone!  How are you on this Saturday!  If the meteorologists were correct then I am waking up to 1-2 feet of snow.  As I am pre-posting this I am not sure of the amount of snow we actually received.  They closed many schools here in the northeast today(Friday), but as of yet we have only had a very light amount of snow.  My favorite part of snow,although what they are forecasting sure is more than a lot, is not being able to go anywhere.  Roads are messy, the officials say to stay off o them, I am happy to oblige and stay indoors.  Preferably in my craft room for the day, although my 4 year old may have something to say about that!

Since it's Saturday we have a new sketch for you to play along with at The Sweet Stop.  Here's our new sketch for the week.

AND, here's my project to go along with this week's sketch.

No Copic Markers this week, can you believe it, me either!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my colored images but this sketch called out for something different, so I used a set of my UNITY kit of the month stamps.

Materials I Used on My Project:
Unity Kit of the month stamps
MS Butterfly Punch
MS border punch
Gross grain ribbon
Recollections Glitter embellishments

That's it for me today, I'm off.  At this moment I 'm probably watching hubby shovel the enormous amount of snow outside our door.  Yes, that's right, I am watching.  He has spoiled me and I am no longer used to going out an shoveling, he's such a good guy!

I hope you can play along with our sketch this week.  Please take the time to stop by and see what beautiful projects the other Sugar Babies have created for you!
Thanks so much for stopping by,


  1. Marlena, I love what you've done with the flowers, with the raised up ones at the front. Fab colours too. Gorgeous creation, I love it. X

  2. Oh, how pretty Marlena. It's a perfect spring card with pretty flowers, colors... and a beautiful butterfly. Love the scallop edge.

  3. Colored or not, you always rock the sketch, Marlena! With all the snow in the forecast, this sunny card is a breath of fresh air and very springy! Love the pretty colors and the beautiful butterfly...gorgeous! Hugs...stay safe in the snow!
