Too Much Fun!





This week's challenge, over at Unscripted Sketches was a fun sketch. As soon as I looked at it, I knew that I had to grab one of my all time favorite Stampendous Stamps!

The lady on this stamp is just having the best time, and her cheerfulness is contagious. Whenever I want to stamp "happy", she's what I reach for!

The sentiment is from the TAC Tag Tidbits set, and the paper is Cloud Nine Designs. (love that too!)

Caryl, I think we really need to name this lady too!

For the staples, I opened up one of the ends, strung them with little pink beads, and then punched holes where the staples needed to go. I pushed them through, and closed them on the back side - fancy ladies need fancy staples!

Hope you like it!

I'm off to the city for a doc appt. with DH. It will probably be a LONG day, so have a good one, and I'll be back soon!

Oh, Patti, this is fabulous! You're right, she does look happy...should we all look like that?!
The staples look great, I can't believe all you did to get this card to look just perfect. I would have stuck myself bending them in and out! lol Even this color is great! This is my new favorite Patti card!
Hope the doc appt goes well and you have a lovely weekend!
Blessings, Maria

You totally rocked this week's sketch Patti!!!! I love it all, but my favorite is the fancy staples. I wouldn't have even have thought to do that!

As for a name, it's hard to give a name to a woman whose eyes you cannot see. Hmmm.....I'll think on this one and get back to you! Thanks for being Unscripted though!
