Hi, everyone! Happy Thursday!

adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen; Zots glue dots; foam backing, Miracle Tape

This sheet of stickers, which only cost $1.50 -- several years ago -- was purchased at a holiday clearance sale. One of those bargains that was to good to pass up, right?! Of course, I would use these. And, here we are, years later... with one used sticker! LOL

I'm also going to share this at:

Parting Thoughts

The current Words 2 Craft By Challenge is open through next Wednesday. With a couple of Simon Says gift certificates up for grabs, we'd love for you to play along with us. :)

I'm going to be working on a box of Valentines for Send a Smile 4 Kids the next couple of days. So, things will probably be pretty quite here for a little while. So.....

... have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. Super job with the sticker, great design. (jingle belle's challenge is to use stickers) thanks for playing along with us at shopping Our stash for the All that Glitters is gold challenge.

  5. oh wow! this is gorgeous and so incredibly elegant, as well! thanks for SHOPPING YOUR (golden!) STASH with us this week! AND thanks for "sticking" with us at JINGLE BELLES!!! (gotta love a card that can multi-task, right?!) <3 <3 <3

  6. I've made purchases like that myself. Just think, if you're short on cards, you always have more stickers to help out. It's beautiful by the way!

  7. Were you in the Playhouse, Sybrina?!! I have those, too!! Haha, that's funny - and that's not the only sheet of stickers I have that I thought were so pretty and I couldn't wait to use. What IS the deal?! Well, you inspire me and I applaud you for finally using one of yours and, just as we both thought, it DID make a brilliant card!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9 and thanks for all your kind get well wishes! Hugs, Darnell
