Life is Good!

Yes, it is! I'm in a really good mood right now. I think my trip "home" to Mississippi to visit my family was just what I needed. Suddenly, I feel revived and hopeful and excited again... something I haven't felt in the past couple of years. It's awesome!

Plus, it's time for another fun challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!


You all remember Central Perk, right? The hang-out on the tv show Friends? I wonder how much they had to do with the Starbucks craze. (*grin*)

I thought the patterned papers from the Max & Whiskers collection by Basic Grey captured the colors of the inspiration piece perfectly! Street Corner Josh definitely looks like he's enjoying life as he sips his coffee... this time, I'm thinking it's a Gingerbread Latte. Have you tried one? Mmmmm!!!

Please do come along and play with us this week! You'll definitely be inspired when you see what the rest of the design team have created!

Mercy Kerin (Guest Designer) 
and Sparkle herself!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back soon with some pix from my vacation!

P.S. The sketch is Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #94.

This card is fantastic I love the feel to it but the name of this stamp is hilarious! Street corner to me makes a reference to well some things unmentionable so Josh is a tad feisty eh? Sorry I couldn't resist
