I Brake For Stamps - Blog Hop - Humorous Seniors :)

Good  Morning Everyone,

There is an awesome sketch challenge that is going on at Paper Craft Planet and I couldn't be more excited to tell you more about this challenge which is being sponsored by I Brake For Stamps. Just by creating a card with this sketch - you might be able to score a $30 Gift Certificate to I Brake For Stamps!!!!!  They have generously donated this lovely gift certificate to one of our challenge participants!!! Woo-hoo!!! 
AND check it out - I Brake For Stamps is going to give a 15% discount for all orders from now through Saturday - the code for that is "PCPlanet" - how nice is that??!!!  

To play along, create a card using this sketch and
post your project in the Paper Craft Planet photo
gallery, and use the tag "PCPIBFS" -- all caps, please. (Here is a tutorial
on adding pictures to the gallery, if you need it.)

All of the SuperNovas at Paper Craft Planet created cards using the stamp line called: Humorous Seniors - this stamp set has awesome sentiments and colorful characters - you can check it out here. One of my fave fave fave images is Rear View Ruth - isn't she sooo cute!! Here is my card using Ruth and the sketch:

And here is a closer look at the sentiment: Isn't it hilarious!!! 

Card Details: 
Paper: a mix and mash: some are from MME, DCVW and some from stash
Ink: Adirondack Expresso for the sentiment, Stazon Black for the image
Accessories: towel and flip flop embellishment, bling for the earrings and for the hat - paper piecing the hat and the bathing suit and prisma color pencils for the rest. Ribbon from Taylored Expressions (green and white polka dot)

I had a ton of fun stamping Ruth and I stamped a few different kinds of bathing suits for her when I was trying to figure out which one to go with - I can totally see a bunch of cards with different outfits and accessories from this set!!!

Don't forget to check out what the other Super Novas came up with:

Can't wait to see what you create with this sketch!!!

Happy Wednesday - ya'll!!!!

Hugs :)
Sankari :)
