Thank You For All You Do!

Hi All! And a Very Happy Saturday to you! Today I am back with another Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge! Yay!  This was another fun one for me, 'cause I took one look at Korin's Awesome Sketch and new it would be perfect for this Darling Sweet 'N Sassy image my Wonderful friend Monika sent me. See, when I first Became a Sugar Baby, I didn't have any Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps yet... Not to worry though, since then, that situation has definitely been remedied lol, and my Sweet 'N Sassy collection is growing more and more with each passing week..lol. Anyway, I just thought it was Really Super Sweet of her to send me a few images to tie me over till I could pick up a few of my own. Thanks so Much Miss Monika! 8-)  So without further delay, here's the Sweet Stop Sketch #121 for this week:

And here's my take on it.. I stuck pretty much with Korin's Awesome sketch.. Didn't change a thing... 8-)



My Sweet little turtle friend is from Sweet 'N Sassy's Gifts from Turtle Set.  Isn't he just the Sweetest little guy!  Well I thought so.. 8-)  I colored him up with my trusty Copics, of course, lol and sponged my clouds with my favorite template and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I added a touch of Antique Linen Distress ink shading and used my score pal to emboss the edges for a nice clean look and then popped him up with a few dimensionals. For my Mats and BG layers I chose a combination of grey polkadot dp's from Sasafrass, Florade 2 digi dp's from Anita Richards and Sunny Day digi dp's from Kate Teague that I had left over in my stash. But, you can find them at Two Peas in a Bucket.. 8-)   To finish it all up, I hand wrote my sentiment onto a Lil' Inker die cut tag, added a fun MS punched border, a bit of polkadot ribbon, some yummy lemon yellow bakers twine,from MAD Stamper Finds, and a few Sweet paper flowers all topped of with a glittery brad from my stash. Pretty easy peasy, huh?.. 8-)

Well, I sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop this week, can't wait to see your take on this weeks sketch! And please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies Fantastic creations! 8-)

  15. What a lovely card, and such masterly coloration of the turtle. The gentle gradations and shadowing make him pop off the page. Love the added touch of pinkness to his cheeks to give him that bashful expression. Px
