Sweet Gretchen ~ The Sweet Stop #23

Sweet N Sassy - Page 120

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I know things have been pretty quiet these past few days but I haven’t spent a whole lot of time on the computer. So many things to do around the house and organizing the family’s busy schedule! Whew! I love the hustle and bustle and the feeling of change! The markets are full of harvest vegetables & fruits and I went a little crazy yesterday. I bought a box, yes BOX of fruits & veggies and have been busy making soups and purees, casseroles and pies. If you had seen my hubby’s face yesterday when I arrived home! Of course, with 3 growing boys, I feel like I actually AM feeding an army these days!

I also have been busy working on a whole bunch of DT cards but I can’t show them to you…….YET!!  But I promise that I will soon be able to share and I can’t wait.

Today I have my card for the Sweet Stop to show you. It is such a great sketch and I seized the opportunity to use the Sweet Gretchen set. She is one of the older sets but she is new to me and I just love her sweet little expression and she is also on SALE!

  She is the perfect image to paper piece as well. I stamped her once on my Neenah Solar crest and then another time on the patterned paper. I used a brown prismacolor pencil & OMS to shade a little bit on the dress and then my copics to color the collar and the belt. Then I cut it out and adhered it to the Neenah image. I love the look it gives to the card with the same patterned paper as the background!

  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Cardstock, Basic Grey Porcelain
