The Sweet Stop Sketch #206

It's raining, again.  Really.  Clouds, drizzle, down pours, dampness, these are not words we want to talk about when spring has arrived.  The words I am looking for are sun, warmth, breeze, all those things that make you feel alive after being cooped up inside for most of the winter.  Mother Nature has other plans and I just think she needs to get with the program.  Have you ever seen how children are affected by the weather.  It changes them and makes them antsy.  Can you blame them, at this point all they want to do is get outside and run!  Twenty kindergartners, inside again for recess, on a Friday.  You can imagine how hard it was to accomplish our tasks for the day.  We did manage though and now we get the weekend to unwind before we start all over again on Monday.

Today we have a brand new sketch for you at The Sweet Stop.  This week we are working on Sketch #206, so many amazing sketches have come and gone.  I hope you have had some time to play along with some of their wonderfulness.  On today's project I am using the Sweet Pea Stamps image, Spring Nocturne. I was first turned onto this image when I first saw my friend Alyce create a project with it.  Alyce is an amazing crafter and her coloring is out of this world.  If you have the time you should stop by her BLOG, you'll be glad that you did.

Here's today's sketch to play along with.

AND, here's the card I made using today's sketch.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Spellbinder's dies
Glossy Accents
MS Rose Leaf Punch
MS Flower Border Punch

I really fell in love with this stamp the moment I saw it.  Alyce's project did such a great job of selling this image as well.  I plan to return back to this shop in the future.

Now it's time for you to play along.  Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog to get your inspiration from the amazing projects created for you by the rest of the Sugar Babies.
