Sugar & Spice

Yippee!  Today Lisa Henke and I had another chance to virtual stamp together.   What a great time!  I highly recommend finding an on-line pal that you can virtual stamp with.  We are physically nearly 3 hours apart but we challenge each other and enjoy knowing we're stamping at the same time.  Then we reveal our creations to each other and enjoy seeing how different they are!  If you ever need an on-line pal to virtual stamp with feel free to drop me an email with a date and time and I'd LOVE to be your vitual stamp buddy as long as I'm available!

This time we decided to do this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast shown below.  We were also supposed to add flowers for today's Ways to Use it challenge and complete it in 30 minutes or less.  Well, I got the sketch part but failed miserably on the rest! I thought the flower part would be easy until I ended up doing a baby card.  The 30 minutes or less I might have gotten but I searched high and low for my dotted emobossing folder and never found it.  
Either way, here is what I came up with.  Considering how many times I tore it apart and started over I'm fairly pleased with it.   

The main image is a new stamp to me from the Sale-a-Bration set Punch Bunch.  I hadn't used it yet so just wanted to get it inky.  My long sentiment at the bottom is an old favorite of mine called Word on Word.  I just love how this stamp is designed to have the larger words in the background a bit faded while the smaller script is more bold.  How creative those SU designers are!!!

Since this is obviously for a baby girl I had to add some pearls and pink dotted ribbon with a pretty scallop border.  Now I just need someone to give it to.  I hope you like it and that you'll stop back tomorrow to see how else we challenged each other. 

If you'd like to play along we'd LOVE to have you join us for our 3rd challenge that neither of us has started yet... it is:  use the sketch from Card Patterns and make your card in under 30 minutes.  If you'd like an extra credit option try this (Lisa doesn't even know about this):  use something metallic.  Can't wait to see who joins us!  When you're done stop back here and link your card in a comment and I'll come check it out!  Be sure to go visit Lisa to see what she did too!
Hope you had a great Thursday!  TGIF!!
