{SSSC43} Sweet Sketch Sunday!

Gotta love Dasher and Sweet Sketch Sunday!

I didn't realize until I opened Blogger to post this, that the last card I posted was with DASHER too! Oh well! I've made a few other cards this week preparing for my Stampin' Up! Christmas Stamp-a-Stack next weekend, so I want you to know it isn't the *only* stamp I'm using these days! :) It is one of my favorites and there are *so* many ways you can use it! Again, it's DASHER (116816) by Stampin' Up! . . . a single stamp that sells for only just $8.95.

The specialty designer paper is another favorite of mine and you can find it in the HOliday Mini Catalog ~ Christmas Cocoa Specialty (116770) $11.95. I've used the Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Folder Petals-A-Plenty (116824) $7.95 on the top half. Just an FYI...I don't have the Big Shot die cut machine, but have found the dies and folders work in my Cuttlebug.

My inspiration for this layout came from the SWEET SUNDAY Sketch Challenge layout below. And I got the idea to use the Top Note Bigz die cut from Vicki ~ one of the Sweet Sunday Stampers! These gals are all *so* creative and always inspire me! Stop on over to Karen Giron's blog "The Sweetest Thing" where you'll find all the details on how to participate in her FUN challenge!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I haven't been posting as much lately and I appreciate you hanging in there with me while I figure out which direction I want to go with my stamping and my blog. As much as I *love* STAMPIN' UP! stamps and products, I'm feeling a bit limited in my creativity and really do miss using all the different designer papers and stamps of other companies. : /

Have a SUPER DUPER enjoyable Sunday, my friends! I'm off to wash the bedding and bake the apple pie I promised Mr. Wonderful! (He's buying groceries now... yes, I'm spoiled, but so is he! :)

Happy Stamping and Smiles 2 U!

"Stressed" spelled backwards is desserts.

Coincidence? I think not!

I love your dasher stamp and seeing it used two different ways is fantastic. He looks good in most any color I imagine.

Love it Pam! I have yet to mount this one, but plan to in the very near future!

I hear you on SU!, I plan to drop my demo-ship after my current club is finished. I can't stand being limited. But the timing coincides nicely with my big plans for the new year. ;)

This card is amazing! I love this little dasher stamp and he fits perfect on this layout too :) I do the same thing by posting the same set or paper days in a row, lol! Don't mess with the mojo, haha!

How can I sway you in the Stampin' Up! direction, my friend? Your amazing stampin' style compliments the Stampin' Up! images, and vice versa! You were BORN to stamp with SU! ... this Dasher card is a prime example! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

What a great card for SSS! Those colors are my fave and that Dasher stamp! You really nailed this one.
