September Rhythm

A few years ago I fell in love with a stamp company, Sweet Pea Stamps and bought many of their stamps and did a few cards (you can see them~ HERE) and then for whatever reason, I sort of pushed them to the side. I still have admired all the creations I see on their DT blog and always think "I should pull my Sweet Pea stamps out" but never do.

Lately I've been truly inspired by Aletha, Alex and Shanna (and the DT blog) with their Sweet Pea creations and then Aletha started a Facebook group for Sweet Pea Stamps and that's all it took!! I am so inspired and falling more in love with these stamps so I decided that they won't be pushed to the side anymore!! Plus since I've first found them, they now offer digis as well!! Oh yeah!! I love that they have so many artists--something for everyone!!

I enjoyed coloring up this stamp, September Rhythm, so much!! Especially her tail! If you're a copic fan, you have to check out Jennifer Dove's color of the day as that's where I got the color combo for the tail and I love it!!

For my layout I used the current sketch from the Friday Sketch Challenge~

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and thank you for taking the time to stop by!! I'm hoping to spend the day crafting as I took a few days off this week and am really feeling creative now~ sometimes a break helps us so much, doesn't it?

If all else fails-add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

Danni, this is gorgeous. Lovely to see you get out your Sweet Pea Stamps. The only problem - especially with the digital stamps - is it's addictive!!!
