SSS222...Oh Happy Day

Happy Saturday! It's Sweet Stop Sketch time again.



I made a Happy Card for the sketch this week. The sketch is pretty simple, leaving room to show of some fun pattern papers. I had this pretty sunshine paper and some fun hearts paper. Since I've been in a sewing mood lately, I added a lot of stitching to this card. I stitched along half of the sun rays and around the heart strips. I love how the stitching turned out. I put a little orange button in the center of the sun to cover up the ends of the stitching lines. The sentiment is from the newer Sweet Kiwi Koala set.

So now it's your turn. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog and get all the details. Also, make sure you look at all the eye candy created by Sugar Babies.

May God bless you with a wonderful weekend!

Me too Melissa - I love your stitching - how clever! I have paper like that but never even thought of accentuating the rays - you made me smile, saying that the button covered up the ends of your sewing lol! It is a design feature, isn't it, that was meant to be there! Hugs!
