SSS225...You're a Star

My friend's niece graduated as an Honor Star at a Christian Life Assembly ceremony tonight. I made a card for her using The Sweet Stop Sketch this week.

I used a square instead of the oval to make it work better for the star image. She likes purple, so I used purple with some light blue. The star and flower stamps are from Unity. The niece stamp is from SNSS. I also used a scripture verse and the sentiment, "You are so precious to me!" on the inside of the card, both from Precious Poppies. I love the Proverbs 31:30 verse from the Precious Poppies set. It was perfect for the inside of this card.

It's your turn to give this sketch a try. You can link up your card or project over at The Sweet Stop Sketch blog. You can also get inspired by seeing what the rest of the Sugar Babies made.

Have an amazing and blessed weekend.

SSS224...Happy Heart

Another Saturday brings another Sweet Stop Sketch challenge. This week the challenge also has a spin: Sunflowers. Ahhhh, I love sunflowers. There is a farm nearby that has been growing fields of them for the past few years. We drove by a field of them last Sunday on the way to church and I smiled the whole time we were driving by that field. And what an appropriate name; sunflowers. They are like rays of sunshine aren't they?

Anyway, I pulled out an older GinaK set, Autumn Beauty, that has some sunflower stamps. The sentiment is from a new Sweet N Sassy Stamps set, Sweet Kiwi Koala. I used some fun vintage looking paper from Hobby Lobby that I had in my stash. And had to pull out some burlap ribbon. I love burlap with fall images like the sunflowers. And of course I had to add some stitching.

Please join us and create something with the sketch this week. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to share a link to your newly created project using the sketch and also check out what the other Sugar Babies created with the sketch this week.

SSS222...Oh Happy Day

Happy Saturday! It's Sweet Stop Sketch time again.

I made a Happy Card for the sketch this week. The sketch is pretty simple, leaving room to show of some fun pattern papers. I had this pretty sunshine paper and some fun hearts paper. Since I've been in a sewing mood lately, I added a lot of stitching to this card. I stitched along half of the sun rays and around the heart strips. I love how the stitching turned out. I put a little orange button in the center of the sun to cover up the ends of the stitching lines. The sentiment is from the newer Sweet Kiwi Koala set.

So now it's your turn. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog and get all the details. Also, make sure you look at all the eye candy created by Sugar Babies.

May God bless you with a wonderful weekend!
