Good morning to ya! I hope your week is going great, and the weekend will soon be here, so that's good news!! Today I'm sharing the card I made for this week's Sweet Stop Challenge. I'm telling ya that there have been some fabulous sketches found there, and you REALLY need to check them out. Especially if you are in need of inspiration for a place to begin. I find that they are so very helpful. I do have to admit that this one was a challenge for me, and it's these cards that always tend to be my favorites. The ones I have to think a little harder about. Go figure!! I hope you like what I've done with this sketch. Be sure to go on over to The Sweet Stop and check out all the gorgeous cards created by the rest of the amazingly talented design team. If you upload your card to play along, you'll be entered into a drawing for a free digi stamp. It's a win/win situation, so please play along with us if you can. This stamp is one of Sweet -n Sassy Stamps new digi releases. Deedee Anderson is the creator of these adorable little teddy bears, and I look forward to each new one released. You can see all of Deedee's Teddies here. They are so cute, and they're always doing something that looks like fun, even if it's raking leaves! I LOVE to rake leaves, and it surely does leave me smiling.
I'm so happy you could stop by today, and I hope you have found some inspiration here. Thank you for making this blog a part of your day, and may our gracious Lord bless and keep you today and always!
Love Ya!
