Relax!

Relax! That sounds good, doesn't it? It also happens to be my husband's pat answer for everything; translation: "don't bug me!" Ha!

I love this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop. Lately I'm attracted to square cards as opposed to the more customary A4 size because there's more room to work. More is better, right? Well, not always, but in this case, I like it!

I couldn't wait to give Olivia the Owl a try. This darling image is from the Sweet Dreams stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Her belly and night cap just begged to be paper pieced... kinda like she's wearing her jammies. The DP is from Cosmo Cricket, perfect for an outdoorsey scene like this. I threw in some hand stitching for good measure. My fellow DT member Nancy is a dab hand at stitching and has inspired me with her beautiful works of art.

Attention stamp lovers!!! Do I have your attention? Are you listening? Are you? Really? Because I have some great news: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has discounted all stamp sets and digi stamps by 25%!!! And that's not all! SNSS is offering US First Class mail as a shipping option to save you even more money!!!

So what are you waiting for! Grab some of these cute stamps as fast as you can!!! And while you're at it, join us each week for The Sweet Stop sketch challenge. A new sketch is posted every Saturday.

Well, I'm off to do something, even if it's wrong (as my dear mother used to say). I'll be back soon with more to share. In the meantime, think positive thoughts and have a great day!

And don't forget my Challenge for a Sunday Afternoon! Remember, you can combine my challenge with any other challenge(s) and there's always a prize up for grabs!

Beautiful card as always.

I love the paper piecing and the stitching. As a matter of fact, the stitching is so perfect that I thought it was stamped or a rub-on!!!
