PAPERCRAFT PLANET SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hi All!!! Sorry for the lack of posts, but this has been one BUSY weekend so far - LOL! On Friday night, we went to the Travis Tritt concert, and it was a blast!!!! Really really enjoyed having an adult night out with some friends listening to some good music! Then, last night we hosted a bonfire at our house so I cooked all day and the last folks left around midnight so I was too pooped to stamp (imagine, that!!) So, I got up this morning and decided today would be a stampin day - LOL!! This card is based on the sketch challenge posted at Papercraft Planet this week. It's a great sketch, so if you get a chance, play along!! I used my Snow Swirled set again, I just love it! The sentiment is from the hostess set Best Yet, which is probably the best hostess set SU! has had IMHO! Now, off to do some blurfing and some more stamping - enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Paper - Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red card stock, Hostess gift pack 6x6 Designers Patterns Pack

Stamps - Snow Swirled, Best Yet
