How sweet it is!


Got sweet tooth?

Me, too!

Here's some sweet that you DON'T have to feel guilty about!




Sweet B A B Y! Samantha, from Scrapmaster's Paradise, threw down some seriously YUMMY colors this week and I had to get busy with them straight out of the chute! No fermentation needed! These colors are ripe for the pickin', if ya know what I mean!




Not only was this a delicious combination, but I was finally able to catch up with the "Get Sketchy" girls who seem to be having too much fun over at their challenge site, so YEAH! I'm delighted to add some "sketchy" to my "scrapmaster..."






I was compelled to sprinkle in some "home grown" character to my Stampin' Up! cherries... (I created an epoxy look with Crystal Effects and then glued on some happy faces for EXTRA sweet cherry goodness!)



Hee Hee! Ain't they happy lookin'!?! I love the versatility of Crystal Effects "effects" just as long as you can WALK AWAY DURING THE DRYING TIME! Don't even LOOK! DON'T EVEN TALK in front of drying Crystal Effects! Shhhhh! Seriously! Don't touch until YOU ARE SURE the glue is dry!!!!! (Sometimes this is SOOO much more easily said then done!) I know this! {Don't ask how I know: I just DO!... You probably do TOO! But the lesson always bares repeating: especially if there's a wonderful effect at stake! It's WORTH the patience!}

Here's the whole shebang!



How sweet it is to nail two challenges with one card (I know some of you ladies do three times that, but for me two is pretty significant.... My lil' brain is fragile! tee hee) So, dear and lovely friends... It has been SO sweet sharing my adventures in card crafting with you! I hope your week is getting off to a nice {and SWEET} crafty start! Can't wait to "talk" with ya some more! Have a SWEET day!
