Reverse Confetti August SFYTT - You Had Me at Aloha & a GIVEAWAY


Hey there, 'Fetti Fans!
It's time for the new August Sketch For You To Try!



Here are the REVERSE CONFETTI goodies that I used on today's card!




GIVEAWAY TIME!!!
I'm giving away one of my all-time favorite Reverse Confetti stamp sets!
Leave a comment sharing a testimony of faith in your life and have a chance at WINNING this beautiful stamp set, God Is Good!  The winner of the stamp set will be randomly selected on Wednesday, August 5th at midnight central.

My testimony.
Recently, my faith has been tested.  My mother has had some ongoing health issues that are difficult to manage.  I have been struggling with worry about her and feeling like I am not doing enough to help her.  She said to me just yesterday..."It's ok, Stacey.  God has me in the palm of his hand."  My mother is a prayer and faith warrior, through and through...and she teaches me this, even now.


Here's an up close look at my SFYTT card!  I used some fun tropical patterns of paper to create a summer fun project...summer is flying by WAY too fast for this teacher mom!
After stamping the pineapples from Pineapples Aplenty and die-cutting them from the coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts, I layered them over a Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts tag tied with some ribbon and twine.  

Head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today!  There just might be some other GIVEAWAYS, too!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Take a look at what else I've been up to!

After cutting two of those awesome notched rectangles, I stamped the cutie pie boy and pond on white cardstock and left uncolored for a cartoon/storybook look, then stamped a sentiment banner, placed it over the image with a bit of stapled twine.

This stamp set is very special to me!  As with most of SugarPea Designs stamps, they tend to pull at my heartstrings and leave me reminiscing of when my children were small.  This set reminds me of my middle boy, Ben...always exploring outdoors, catching frogs, carrying tools around...still does, as a matter of fact!  Thanks, SugarPea Designs for capturing the heart of every day moments!


Make sure you stop at all of the SUGARCHICS' blogs to see their fabulous creations!  You won't want to miss a beat of sweetness!  Tomorrow is RELEASE DAY...woot woot!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
