on a {sweet} roll

i've been able to get a lot of crafty time in lately, and i'm loving it! sometimes when i'm in a lull or rut, i just make it worse by not making myself craft. but when i'm on a roll and the ideas and fun is flowing, i remember how much i love this stuff! it's much better than sitting on the couch and wanting to craft but being too lazy or coming up with excuses! lol!

anyway, i made this card for the paper smooches july sparks challenge (again!). it's such a fun challenge with so many possibilities!

here is the designer's draft that i chose to model my card after (even though i flipped the sketch)!

i used the monster (probably my all-time favorite single image of the PS stamp line so far!) from the 'falling for you' stamp set and added an arm to hold the popsicle from the 'sugar rush' stamp set. i also used the sentiment from that same set. :)

i popped up the clouds and the monster, and for some fun texture i layered two different green ribbons for the 'grass'. he he! i think it just makes the perfect thank you card - it's light and happy and colorful! :)

i sure hope my crafty streak continues! :) i'm loving it!
