SHOPPING OUR STASH #173 - Hello Sweetie!

Good Morning! It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge starts at SHOPPING OUR STASH!

In honor of Sweetest Day, which is October 18th, we'd like you to make a card or project that features a 'sweet theme' on it. (Ex: candy, ice cream, cookies, something for your sweetie, etc.) Here's what I came up with: Oh, and spoiler alert - put whatever beverage you are drinking down now. (wink!)

Here's the inside of my card:

You're welcome for that spoiler alert. Nothing like a bit of snark on the inside of my card! LOL! I've had this paper collection for at least a couple of years and had a bunch of bits and pieces that I refused to throw out. So, I challenged myself to use them up! (Thus the very strange colors/patterns picked! LOL!) My design is based on Sweet Sunday Sketch #240.

Ready to play along? You know you have candy/ice cream/cookie stamps in your crafty arsenal waiting to be inked up!
