Paper Sweeties!!!


Hi Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful blessed Easter!  We
went out to eat and had a delicious chicken/ham dinner.
And, I couldn't resist the coconut cream pie to finish
off the meal...yummm!  Yikes!  The treadmill is
calling my name again...hehehe!:-)

I have some very exciting news to share with you today!
Debbie has asked me to join the Paper Sweeties' Design
Team!  To say that I was surprised and so excited is an
understatement!  It certainly was one of my dreams to
be on a design team one day.  And, I am very honored
to be on such an amazing team with so many talented
ladies!  Thank you, Debbie!!!
The above card is for the monthly challenge.  Here is
the fun design to follow for this month...

I used sweet little Sophie for my card.  I thought it
very fitting to use her since I fell in love with Paper
Sweeties when Debbie first came out with the stamps!
And, the first time I used Sophie was for my darling
little niece named, Sophia, for her birthday!:-) 

I started with a cream card base and used some lovely
papers from My Mind's Eye.  One of my favorite
punches from Martha Stewart along the top of the
card.  Copics to color sweet Sophie.  Her dress, hat,
and shoes were paper pieced using Jelly Bean Time
stamps.  Doesn't Sophie look so sweet?  The sentiment
used was from the set, You Make Me Smile.  I finished
off the card using Oatmeal Cream ribbon, flower, and
