Sweet Sunday Challenge # 65

This week I am running full speed and wanted to take the time and get my SSSC card done. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. I am enjoying my Big Shot that I finally broke down and purchased. "Big Boy" is getting a workout. I really enjoy these challenges that Karen does. It helps me get my week started on a happy note. Here is this week's sketch.

and here is my take.

Stamps: All Holidays
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Sweet Pea DSP
Accessories: Small Tag Punch, Flower Layers #4, Rhinestone Brads, Certainly Celery Ribbon
In other news;
I was comissioned by my cousin Heather to help her with my niece's 13th birthday celebration. Heather, who although is small in size, has enormous ideas. She enlisted me with the herculean task of party favors for the party. Little did I know it would turn into something greater.

It started out with me making the party favors. I happily agreed to make 30 box party favors. This gives me the opportunity to use my new Stampin' Up! Box # 2 die cut I recently purchase (LOVE IT!). It has now turned into making 75 paper flowers. It seems gum paste flowers are SUPER expensive and making scallop punch flowers are a feasible idea for those who are on a budget. These little cuties are so adorable, but my are they labor intensive, especially when making 75! Oh well, I love my cousin dearly and would do anything in the world for her. She has become my bestest cheerleader and marketing agent. It seems the bakery is interested in paper flowers as a "Plan B" for people on a budget. Truth be told, I am loving coming home from a hectic day at work and paper crafting. What could be better?!
