Paper Smooches Sparks | April Designer Drafts Challenge

Hey there! I hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday. Evan had his soccer game this morning and played very well (although his team lost, which is always disappointing!), then we drove to Lowe's to build planter boxes. Their Build and Grow program is a lot of fun, but our time there confirmed that a carpenter, I am not. I was helping Evan with assembly and I put the box together with the pilot holes on the inside, and after some frustration Mark took over and ended up throwing our box out and starting over! I took Jack to the garden department and we picked out some flowers for the planter boxes, which is more my speed. 

At one point, Evan looked at me and said: "Mom, I think I want Dad to help me. He knows how to do it right". I was not offended. I know when I have been defeated! 

I have a few minutes to post a couple of cards while the boys cover themselves with Angry Birds tattoos. :)

This week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge is a sketch challenge: 

I used Paper Smooches' Woofers and Tweeters stamp set for my card. The dogs are adorable! And super easy to color. I colored and fussy cut the dogs then popped them up with dimensional adhesive on top of PTI's Limitless Layers 2.5" circle dies.

(Supplies - Stamps: (Paper Smooches) Woofers and Tweeters. Ink: (Memento) Tuxedo Black. Cardstock: (PTI) Winter Wisteria, White. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Winter Wisteria and Soft Stone patterns pack. Dies: (PTI) Limitless Layers 2.5" circle dies, Edgers Dies #1. Gems: Hero Arts. Twine: American Crafts. Other: Copic Markers.)

This card reminded me that I need to pull out my edgers dies more often. They add just a little something extra to this card. And I can't tell you how excited I was when I found twine that matched the Wisteria cardstock. I love it when that happens. :)

I'll be back soon!
