Sweet Sketch Wednesday #117

Hello Friends! Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday! If you cant tell by my blog posts, I love the sweet sketch wednesday blog. The DT ladies there are so 'sweet' and their sketches are 'delicious'! haha I couldnt resist! I made this card following the sketch with my new Paper Smooches stamp set, A Little Lovin'. I 'cased' the idea to paper piece the elephants from the Paper Smooches blog. It is the reason that I NEEDED this stamp set! Besides paper piecing being one of my favorite techniques, I love the special texture and dimension it gives the elephants.
I am also happy that it is FINALLY the last day of August. August always seems to just draaaggg on and on. Today also marks 1 month done of our 12 month deployment. nice. 11 more to go. WooHoo!

Stamps: PS A Little Lovin'
Paper: MME Honey Cake dp, Basic Black textured cs
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, charcoal chalk ink
Tools/Accessories: Lacey Circle & Circle Nestabilities, Corner Rounder, Rhinestone Brads, misc glittery heart, dimensionals

Thank you so much for stopping by! I cherish your comments & thoughts!
