A Sketch Challenge...and a GoodBye...

Happy Monday everyone! Is that an oxymoron?  - I think (yes I am using my smilies!)

This is a long post and I apologize but I have a ton of things to share today!

First of all, this is my last Little Paper Shop post as a designer, so I wanted to use the {I Heart} stamp set and this sentiment - "Home is Where the Heart Is". Two years ago Julia took a chance with me and I began my journey as a stamper with a home - Little Paper Shop.

Everyone is so fun to get along with and so very supportive in everyway. It breaks my heart to leave, but I chose not to renew my contract this year and have decided to try my hand elsewhere.  As my daughter says....."Out of my Comfort Zone and into my Courage Zone"!

Thank you Julia and all the girls _ I will miss you!

Now onto business......Our sketch is a fun one and if you want to play along and win  a digi stamp, make a card from our sketch! Check out all the info on our blog - Little Paper Shop blog!

Here is my take on the sketch! 

and see my fun new ribbon - it's that wonderful seam binding that everyone has been using! I followed a tutorial on the Embellish Magazine - Ashley used silk ribbon - but I happened to have the seam binding so I used it. --and I ironed my "ribbon" because I am not too crazy about the real wrinkled look - call me old fashioned!

I used K & Company designer paper along with Zva and Prima flowers also!

Thanks for coming around today and come back tomorrow when the Waltzingmouse Design Team will have their monthly Designer Blog Waltz - usually reserved for new releases but we were all too tired out from alllll the new stamp sets last month (just kidding...) Smiley from

We will be focusing on the original Waltzingmouse Stamp sets, there will be the usual prizes - and that will be a treat! (hint)

and just one more thing!! 

-Have you heard about DRS Designs Stamp A Day Give Away that is scheduled for June?
