God's Beauty



While stamping last night, I did something I haven't done in a long, long time - I made a Stampin Up-only (SUO) card! Not just mostly SU, but all SU. Are you proud of me? The whole SUO idea usually makes me nervous, as I've become quite dependent on my Spellbinders dies, non-SU stamps and embellishments, and non-SU designer papers. But I'm happy with this one, thanks to the fun corduroy buttons and the beautiful Parisian Breeze textured designer paper.

And then there's the awesome sketch I worked with - Jen's Sketch For You To Try. You can see the sketch and Jen's sample at Jen's blog, i{heart}2stamp. While you're there, be sure to give a warm welcome to April's guest designer, the fabulous Kimberly Crawford! Also be sure to take a peek at what the rest of the SFYTT sistahs have cooked up. We love when you play along, too! Remember to use keyword SFYTT if you upload to SCS.
