Shopping our Stash #173 - Hello, Sweetie!


The third Saturday in October is Sweetest Day - so at Shopping our Stash this week we want you to use  a "sweet" theme, and tell us how you interpreted the challenge. Ideas: candy, ice cream, cookies, something for your sweetie, etc. 

So I was going to make something all sweet, and then I realized...Rob might die. So I made this:


Supplies: Stampendous stamps; Spectrum Noir markers; Dress it Up heart buttons; Sew Easy tool; Tim Holtz ruler; paper piercer & embroidery floss

This is what gave birth to the "You Make Me Stabby" card, actually :) And even better, this Changito stamp was NBUS of at least a year and a half! WOOT! 

And as a bonus - remember our joint challenge with the Jingle Belles?  Ira Huberts won with us, and snagged a guest DT spot so you'll see her join us a few times this month.

Ready to create something sweet?  Join us before next Monday,October 20th!

I seem to drive everyone bananas these days but no shares their nanas with me. This is a fun card, but the You make me stabby is better yet!!!!

Yeah, an all sweet card would probably kill Rob. Excellent choice going with the snarky card! The stitched hearts and heart buttons are the perfect touch!
