I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, Large Sunflower

Ages ago, when I first started stamping, I purchased single stamps from stamp stores. Remember those wonderful stores?  I could spend hours in those stores and I have tons of single stamps to show for all of those hours. These days, they seem to just sit in drawers of plastic stackable storage bins waiting to be used, as my "go to" stamps are those in sets like Stampin' Up and Taylored Expressions.  Today, when I saw the angled panel on the SSSC card, so perfect for a large stamp, I decided to look through the drawers and use one of those poor, neglected single stamps.

As the weather today here in San Diego is basically that of a perfect summer day (even though it's only March), my inclination was to use bright summery colors.  What could be more fitting than a sunflower to go along with that?

Here's my card for this week's SSSC.  Please enjoy!

Stamps: Sunflower Square by Stampassions and "Kind and Caring Thoughts" set by Stampin' Up.
Card stock:  Taylored Expressions choice snow white and
SU crushed curry and pumpkin pie

Copics: Y11, Y13, YR12, YR23, E08, E33, G28, YG45

Thanks for looking in today,
