Picking Sea Shells....

Hello to all...it is time for another Sweet Stop Sketch!

This stamp is probaly one of my all time favourites that I bought at Michaels a couple of years ago. Here in Ontario it is a wet and cold weekend and I am longing for summer so much. I coloured her up with some new Stampin Up distress inks that I just got last weekend.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  1. Oh Christine, this is a beautiful card. Just love that stamp and got to love the colour combo too. I use grey/gray far too seldom and it really makes for a very pretty picture on these pics. hugs Sharon x

  18. Christine, I bought this stamp years ago, it's a Stamps Happen stamp, which was one of the first companies I used when I started stamping. She is still a favorite today and you have colored her beautifully. Such a sweet little girl.
