SSS224...Happy Heart

Another Saturday brings another Sweet Stop Sketch challenge. This week the challenge also has a spin: Sunflowers. Ahhhh, I love sunflowers. There is a farm nearby that has been growing fields of them for the past few years. We drove by a field of them last Sunday on the way to church and I smiled the whole time we were driving by that field. And what an appropriate name; sunflowers. They are like rays of sunshine aren't they?

Anyway, I pulled out an older GinaK set, Autumn Beauty, that has some sunflower stamps. The sentiment is from a new Sweet N Sassy Stamps set, Sweet Kiwi Koala. I used some fun vintage looking paper from Hobby Lobby that I had in my stash. And had to pull out some burlap ribbon. I love burlap with fall images like the sunflowers. And of course I had to add some stitching.

Please join us and create something with the sketch this week. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to share a link to your newly created project using the sketch and also check out what the other Sugar Babies created with the sketch this week.
