JUGS challenge #23...a sketch!

Hi Everyone!!! I have my Just Us Girls challenge today and it was a sketch. I loved this because I had little crafting time this week but needed to make a card for a friend. This sketch was the perfect jumping off point.



Here's my card!!



The stamps are Papertrey Ink, as is all the paper. I really like the Kraft color with red. I got so inspired, I decided to make a little gift set. Papertrey has these stamps that coordinate perfectly with Hershey nugget candies. And their tins are perfect too!



And I didn't stop there...here's a little notebook, too!!


Funny how I didn't think I had time to craft, but I got so inspired that I couldn't stop until everything was made. This set is safely on it's way to a friend, hope she enjoys it!!

I am leaving tomorrow for a scrappy weekend with my girlfriends, I cannot wait!! I still have lots of packing to do. That's the worst part...the packing. What to bring, what to bring!! Hee hee!! Thanks for stopping by!
