I decided to play along with the Sweeties at the Sugar Bowl where the challenge this fortnight (why is there not an American equivalent for this term? I always feel self-conscious when I use it, but what else is there?) is this fantastic sketch with the optional theme of Kraft paper. Here is my take on the challenge:
I love Kraft paper--whenever I use it, I find myself humming "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music---brown paper packages tied up with string! I even used a little twine to play up the association. The red polka dotted paper was still on my desk from the Valentines I made earlier this month. The pink envelope paper is from Fancy Pants--isn't it perfect for this stamp?!
This sweet stamp was my first Sugar Nellie stamp, and I think it will always be one of my favorites. I love to use it for "thinking of you" mail. The stamp is called Post Box. It's no longer available from Sugar Nellie, but it has been re-released by Belles 'n Whistles.
I'd like to enter this card in the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge where the theme this month is "Love and Hearts" and also in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge where this week's task is to use 3 papers.
Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great day!
