Paper Sweeties Sketch Challenge #5













Are you a Paper Sweeties fan? If you are you will definately want to check out the sketch challenge on the Paper Sweeties Blog. Just follow the sketch design to make your own creation and then link it up for your chance to win two Paper Sweeties sets of your choice. The challenge is monthly so there is lots of time to make something!

Today I made an Easter card featuring two of the new March releases.  Usually the stamps don't hit the store until the 15th but to give you more time to prepare for the Easter Holiday they are available now!  You will love all the sweet new designs with Spring/Easter sentiments - new outfits for the Paper Sweeties, and embellishments like the Easter bunny and basket on my card.  You can  check them out here!


I strung a banner of Easter baskets and a sweet little bunny on a field of green patterned paper.  He is so sweet and fun looking - and just makes me smile.

Looking for a little inspiration?  Check out what the rest of the design team came up with for the challenge.



And ... my last bit of news to announce today -- instead of our regularly scheduled March *new* stamps being released on the 15th of the month, we bumped up the release schedule so that the *new* stamps are LIVE in the shop TODAY!  Hopefully, releasing the Easter theme stamps early will make it more convenient for you to order your favorite *new* Sweeties stamps and create pretty projects for the upcoming Easter holiday ... spring events ... and more!

To help celebrate the March 1st *new* stamp release, we are offering FREE SHIPPING from March 1st through March 5th on your Paper Sweeties orders ... use FREE SHIPPING coupon code at checkout to redeem your discount!


Thanks for stopping by to say hi!  Have a great day!
