Stamps and Smiles - SASSC25

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today's card is for this week's sketch challenge "SASSC25" over at Stamps and Smiles. We warmly invite you to play along, use your favorite stamps and supplies. Every week we giveaway a fun goodie bag to one of our participants.

For my card layout I used some NEW paper by Stampin’ Up! called The Write Stuff, I LOVE it!! The flower was created using 6 hearts and then I added a brad at the base to hold them all together. Cuppy was stamped in Memento ink and colored in using my Copics and coarse glitter was added to the whip of Cuppy.

Please stop the Stamps and Smiles Challenge blog to see more fun samples using this week’s sketch. Every Thursday a NEW sketch is posted, we hope you will stop by and play along!!
Before I go I would like to share a little treasure I found... I was sorting through some of my things from when I was a teenager and came across a tube that had some of my old music posters. As I was unrolling the posters, Morten looked right at me... I said to myself "NO WAY"... can you believe I saved my A-ha poster?!?! It's been in this tube for 22 years! After the shock, I raced to Michael's and bought a frame and framed it. My husband is teasing me and asking me where I want to hang it... above my bed I thought (just kidding)!! Since I create a ton during the week, it will be placed in my stamp room!! Oh and to top it off, I also found out (the same day) that A-ha will be coming back to tour in America in 2010!! Listen to it yourself in an interview on BBC - it is towards the end of the clip)

Recipe ~ Stamps: Stamps and Smiles Cuppy Love Ink: Memento Paper: The Write Stuff, Soft Suede, White Accessories: Ribbon, Sizzix - Swirls & Scribbles sizzlet, Nestabilities - Heart, Copics, Martha Stewart coarse glitter.
