Sweet Sunday EXCITEMENT!!!!! and a Sweet Sketch!!!

Well Hello there!!!! It's Sunday, and that means Sweet Sunday Sketch time.... BUT!!!! there is more.... YES MORE!!!! I have some SUPER EXCITING news to share with you... I've been busting to share this oh so SWEET news with you, but have been sworn to secrecy until TODAY!!!! Right... so onto the EXCITMENT. I am extremely honoured and privileged to tell you that I have been asked by the GORGEOUS Karen to be a Design Team member or rather a 'Sweet Sunday Stamper' for the Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!!.. I'm still pinching myself, and was questioning at one point if Karen had asked the right "Sarah" given the AMAZINGLY TALENTED ladies that make up the rest of the "Sweet Sunday Stamper" gang.... SERIOUSLY, you must check them all out, the are AMAZING!!!!!

Now onto today's Sweet Sunday Sketch... and let me assure you this is a GOODIE!!!

I sat and pondered over this card for ages... well ok DAYS... and FINALLY came up with this:-

Oh and of course for Karen's GORGEOUS sketch:-

Oh I almost forgot... MORE EXCITEMENT... can you handle MORE!!! Of course you can!!!... Karen is giving away some BLOG CANDY this week for the Sketch winner..... sooooo wait no longer... pop on over to her fabulous blog and play along.... it really is FUN.

Now to tell you what I did.... well... I started with some Kraft cardstock and to that added a layer of Baja Breeze which I sponged a little with Choc Chip and then added some Baja Breeze DSP from the Ski Slope pack. I then tackled the Off Centre panel... hmmmm... what to do with that little beauty!!!! Well I opted to make that with some Choc Chip and some more of the gorgeous patterned paper from Ski Slope. I used my Best Yet (Hostess set) for the sentiment (the little square) and stamped that in Old Olive and Real Red with some more sponging in choc chip and added a little Choc Chip Ribbon tag. I stamped the Poinsetta from Seasons of Joy twice once on White cardstock and then on Real Red card and then joined them and the little Old Olive ribbon tag with a Rhinestone brad. I'm still a little uncertain of this little beauty... I'm not sure whether it needs a little something else... but in fear of totally ruining it, I opted for the "less is more" option.... hahaha.

Now... YOU MUST pop on over to the most amazingly talented Blogs of the other Sweet Sunday Stampers:-

This is SO pretty! The colours are soft and I love how you inked the edges of the sentiment panel to soften it even more. Fabulous!

Karen sooo picked the right Sarah, you are one gifted stamper!! Lovely card. I was so happy when we got the Ski Slope DSP, was eyeing it off last year when they had it in the US.
It is such a nice sketch, I might have to have a play. Still need to have a go at Keesh's too.
