i'm stuck on you...

Hello friends!!  Hope your week is off to a good start!  Popping in today with a card for a few challenges.   The new challenge at AAA Cards is "there's a hole in my card" which worked perfectly with the new sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch.  So glad that I discovered that Sweet Sunday Sketch now has it's own blog.  I'm also going to post this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - CAS, as well as the new Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - anything goes.  I bought this fun Lawn Fawn set "Stuck on You" about a month ago and finally got the chance to ink it up.  This is a set that I wouldn't have normally purchased, but it was just too cute to resist!   I cut my kraft cardstock to size, embossed it with a woodgrain embossing folder and then die cut the circle using a Spellbinders plain circle die.  The cactus and pot were die cut, stamped and then arranged inside the circle after I stamped the sun (from a Hero Arts set) and the "grass" (from the Stampin Up! set Sheltering Tree.  A little strip of cardstock was cut, stamped with the sentiment and then adhered using foam dimensionals.   Finished things off with the three little hearts.   I really like how the pot didn't stamp fully... gives it a bit of a weathered look. 

 
 


Thanks for stopping by...
