So here we are at Friday and I'm three days late posting your Tidbit Tuesday.  Why oh why you ask?  Hmm, I've been a stamping fool this week with lots of beautemous samples rolling off my desk!  Stars must be aligning this week and if it's good this week, what's it going to be come Sept 1st!  Hot dog, stamping bonanza during nap time!  I'm quivering with glee.

So let's get right down to business so that I can head back over to my stamp desk to work on more cards!  I used the layout from the previous post to be my sketch challenge.  It's from splitcoast and it's SC239.  I'll show you my least favorite first and save the BEST for last.  I'm proving a point here.  It shows that even when you're having a stunning week, you can crank out a few dogs now and then.  Even if you've been stamping longer than your middle child is old, you can fess up to a few ugly cards occasionally.  And you know, it was A LOT cuter in my head!  I tried to do the "kissing" technique on my elephant and all it looks like is a little green elephant with baby acne but I'm sure his mother loves him though.

Let's leave you with a better impression of my creative week.  I loved the iciness of this card.  I think I may change the saying to something a smidge darker.  It's a tad hard to read.  So there you have it, one of my favorite sets from the new mini catalog.  You should be getting yours shortly!  So back to the stations everyone!
