The Sweet Shop Challenge and Stampin Celebration


We have a few days for rain rain rain but today it finally clear and and the sun is shining.  Having said that I have managed to make another 4 cards today as it was still raining this morning.   I have found yet another new challenge for you today.  I can't remember where I stumbled upon it but as I find most of my inspiration comes from challenges, more is def more in this case.

Of course I still love the older challenges and one of my favourite ones is The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, I think I have been doing this one for a long time maybe 4 or 5 years.  I get very disappointed when challenges close down, especially the ones I have done for a long time.  I also used the newly discovered inspirational photo challenge from Stampin Clelebration as my pallet.

For this Card I used the following products from Stampin Up

Card - Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla, Water colour card, Crumb Cake
Ink - Concorde Crush, Gumball Green, Baked Brown Sugar, Sahara Sand
Fancy Fan embossing folder
Stamp - Happy Water colour and a very old hostess one that I still LOVE I think it's the font.
Decorative label punch
Paper is from the In colour Paper Stack

Thanks for looking

  4. I love what you have done with color palette and sketch. It is sad when a favorite challenge site closes down, but exciting to find fresh new ones to join in. Thank you for participating in the Stampin' Celebration challenge this week. Hope to see you back soon. P.S. the mid-month sketch just went live today if you want to check that out. I'm a sketch lover too.
