More Food

Good morning stampers! Thank you all for your concern for Todd. He is doing quite well. His hand is, of course, sore but he's a guy and does stuff anyway.

I thought I'd go ahead and make another card with a food item to remind you about our Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge for this week. Since my dad's birthday is coming up I thought I would use that as my opportunity to make a card with this cute image from Fast & Fun Notes. All the patterned paper is from the To The Nines designer series paper pack, oh, and the "you, you, you" is from the set Three Little Words. I used some of the new Shimmer Paint that SU! has in the Holiday Mini on the buttercream portion of the frosting. It lends some fun shimmer to the card for sure! I'm pleased with the way this came out...low key, masculine, and okay...cute!

We at SSC are excited to announce that we will now be a weekly challenge blog. The response from our challenge players has been overwhelming positive so we have decided to kick it up a notch for ya. Nothing has changed for our first challenge so be sure to get your entry in by Saturday August 29th at 11:59 p.m. pacific time for a chance to win the wonderful Happy Birthday set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Starting next week (with my 1st challenge) we will be posting the challenge on Sunday, announcing the winner from the last challenge as well as announcing our shooting starts for the last week on Tuesdays, and then on Thursday we will have your Guest Designers artwork for the week. Challenges will always end at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday night. Any questions...just leave a comment (with a way to get a hold of you) or send me an e-mail.

I've got something exciting to share with you on Thursday this week! Eek! I can't wait! Until then you'll just have to hold your breath...nah...don't do that I don't want anyone to faint on me! Fainting

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
