Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Happy New Year!

I hope you are getting ready to party tonight.  As I look out the window it's snowing here - hope that doesn't put a damper on my sons soiree - that's his polite and civilized way of saying he's inviting friends over to play video games all night.   I'll be playing the hostess with the mostest - making ribs, chicken skewer, garlic bread, and sausage. What man can resist meat on a stick?  They will think I'm a cooking genius!  HAHA!  

I had a little time to play yesterday and have been itching to play with some of the new stamps I got for Christmas.  The Paper Smooches Beboppin was calling to me and my rock n roll heart.  I was so happy that my son actually knew what the cassette image was - I'm never sure of these things any more.  Last week he didn't know what  a mimeograph machine was and I had to explain it to him.  I sounded like an old timer... well back in my day.... 

This week it's anything goes at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  And while this one looks all clean and simple, but don't let it deceive you folks.  I tell you I learned LOADS about masking and pigment inks with this one.  Please don't ask me how many times I stamped it either - it's embarrasing.
Well I hope it makes you smile - have a fun and safe night - well take a few chances - but not on the road ok?  Big hugs and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
