Cute By the Inch DivaSC136

Happy Weekend and welcome to another great sketch & challenge with the Utah Divas!

I'll be sharing one idea with you today using this sketch; to see more either follow the link below or visit the UDI blog for a complete list of participants. (If you are reading this early Saturday morning, please note that some participants post their projects later in the day...)

So it's mid-May already. Can you believe it? Aside from the school year ending and the temperatures heating up, it's also time to start thinking about the end of the Stampin' Up! year. Two things that always get updated with the release of the new catalog? Our Designer Series Paper and our Hostess-only stamps. Today's card uses one of each.

It may have been the noise going on in the background (the boys have summer-itis and well, they're boys...) but the stripes on the base layer were bugging me somehow. Dominating too much attention, maybe? So I added a layer of Very Vanilla; but now that I see this on-screen I wondering if I should have just left it alone. Or sent the boys outside so I could think straight before committing to adhesive. Or maybe it's a just a dark chocolate deficiency? Free Smiley Courtesy of

To see more ideas, here's the link to Barbara's blog. She is using a new punch and stamp set from the Summer Mini. Enjoy and Thanks for stopping by!
