Sweet Stop Sketch #182

I am so excited to share with you my first Sweet Stop Sketch card along with the rest of the Sugar Babies.

It is currently way too warm for the end of October here in Pennsylvania and it has literally made me sick. Ugh! So I am longing for cooler days and lots of snow. So my card for this sketch is a fun wintry card that has me longing for the next season to get here.

I used the snowman stamp from Love You This Much and the 'Warm Hugs' sentiment from Snowflake Flourish. I love this sentiment. What a great way to send a thinking of you card to someone you love and wish you could hug in person. The fun vintage looking winter papers are from a 6x6 pad I found at Big Lots. It is from Prima Company and it's called North Country Collection. I'm not sure how old it is, but I love the papers and can't wait to make more fun cards with it.  I used some stitched felt ribbon and a fun green button for the ribbon treatment on the sketch.

I hope you are inspired to go make your own fun wintry card. I can't wait to see what the Sweet Stop Sketch fans create with this sketch. If you did not find my post from the SSS blog, please head over to there to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies did with this sketch and to link up your project.

I am off to do some camping with my mom this weekend. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
