A love of reading


It's Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday!!  
(say that really fast 3 times, LOL)

I'm going to keep it short and sweet today.  We are coloring Easter eggs this morning and then heading out the door for one last hooray at Disney World.  

One of the fun things about designing for 7 Kids College Fund is the HUGE variety of stamps and stamp companies to choose from.  So I decided to find a few stamps from companies that I hadn't worked with before and change it up a little.  Today's card features, Reading Hedgehog from Stampavie.  My first love is reading so this sweet little guy was an easy choice.   I also decided to use a pre-made paper flower and added a glossy button from American Crafts in the center.  Not sure that it total works, but again I was trying to use something / do something different than I normally do.  Although it is hard to tell from the photograph, I applied Glossy Accents to his reading glasses.

 

And here's a look at this week's sketch.


I hope you will stop by The Sweet Stop sketch challenge blog and see all the gorgeous DT samples using this weeks sketch.  And if your in the mood for a little shopping...why don't you take a look in the 7 Kids College Fund store and find something new to play with.  :)

I hope everyone who celebrates, has a blessed Easter day tomorrow!!  



As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the way your paper flower with that glossy button pikcs up the flower motif in the patterned paper immediately behind your image panel - I think it works! I shall have to investigate Stampavie further - I can recognize the older images & I do love animal images. Your pile of books is terrific too.
With Easter Greetings.

What a precious card! I don't know what it is about hedgehogs, but I just think they are the cutest things ever!! Your flower embellishment draws out the colour of the book.
I hope you had a super time at Disney!
