Sweet Stop Saturday

Welcome to another sweet stop Saturday sketch. This week I was the one who designed the sketch and Korin made it pretty for me since I am not that great with Photoshop. I like the way the sketch came out but I honestly am not happy with my card and this is the second time this week this has happened. Where oh where has my mojo gone oh where oh where can it be? Oh well- maybe my mojo will return soon hopefully. I know that lack of time and feeling overwhelmed lately probably has a bit to do with it. You know how it goes too much to do and no time to do it? My youngest daughter goes to kindergarten in Sept and this is my last month home with her by herself ever so I am feeling that I need to spend as much time with her as I can. I also started going back to the gym 2 weeks ago after not going for 3 months following my ankle injury. So basically I have not had much time to stamp and when I have done some I feel rushed-KWIM? Tonight I am going out for my anniversary and I truthfully have a bad attitude today so I need to pray that God would sweeten my spirit so I don't ruin it for my hubby. Well thanks for listening and on to the card LOL!

Check out the sketch and my card:

I stamped the ice cream cone twice and cut the top off of them. I colored them with copics and then embossed them with iridescent ice ep before popping them up on pop dots. I used the Summer Fun and Summer sentiments stamp sets which are on sale this month at Sweet N Sassy stamps.

stamps- sweet n sassy stamps Summer Fun and Summer sentiments
CS- Paper Temptress lemon drop, white, Basic Grey dp
accessories- iridescent ice ep, shimmer brads, double ended tags nesties, taffeta ribbon, copics

Check out the challenge info and the some great examples from the Sr DT on the Sweet Stop blog.

Have a marvelous day and thanks for dropping in!

Janette, your card is SO cute with all the sparkles and the dimension to the ice cream! I'll be praying that the Lord lifts your spirits tonight so that you and your hubby can have a wonderful time together. Hugs!
