Two Sticky Cards

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  I am here with a new Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!    I was very happy when I woke up this morning to sunshine!  This week it's been so bleary and gloomy with rainy like weather everyday!  Yay sunshine!  Fun outside here we come!  I am also happy to report that Ariel seems to be doing much better and no one has joined her with the stomach flu she had yesterday.  Here's hoping it stays that way!


I am very excited about our sponsor this week, SRM Stickers!  I know you've heard of them they are all over the place! They were so generous to us DT and provided us with some really great stickers to work with!  I loved playing with them, they are so easy to use!  Our challenge this week is very fitting it's "Get Sticky" play with stickers or rub ons!    I actually made two cards:


 This sentiment was actually a full line but I cut it up and used it like this instead, super easy to do!  I used a paper from my Hello Luscious pack, one that I actually didn't really like but now love.  I like this color combo it includes my favorite color pink, the yellow is so different for me!  I embossed the flower in chestnut and finished the card with some ruffled ribbon!

My next card I used the CPS sketch this week, I love the sketch and it may be the first time I've played with them.  I am also entering it into the Lily Pad's challenge of embossing, I love embossing so I will probably enter a lot.  I am actually not sure if I can combine challenges so if I can't please let me know.

I love this sentiment!  It's perfect so many different things and I am going to be happy to have this on hand!  I stamped the branch with moss green pigment ink and than clear embossed on top.  Than I stamped in white the old letter writing (because if I did it first I would have had to wait a while for it to dry so I wouldn't get embossing powder on the white ink too)  Added some buttons and there you go!

I hope that you will join us with this fun challenge this week!  Our Top Hoot will win a SRM Sticker gift certificate, and our random winner will receive a Wee Memories Prize Pack!  Please check out the Wee Memories Blog for more details and to see the other wonderful creations from my fellow DT girls!  Our challenge runs until Friday May 20, 11:59PST.
