Happy Congratulations

The name of this stamp set cracks me up – it makes me think of one of those “close but not quite” translations.  You know the ones.  In any event, I used a sketch from the Paper Players to get started:

Maui Stamper PP180 Happy Congratulations

  • Stamps:  Happy Congratulations and Petal Parade (SAB)
  • Color Palette:  Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Whisper White and Black Staz-on
  • Accessories:  Sweet Sorbet DSP, Big Shot and Decorative Dots TIEF, Pool Party Seam Binding, Oval punch, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals

It’s a fun sketch because it includes a pull-out tag:

Here’s the sketch.  You can see I took a little creative license with it, but that’s all in the game:

Paper Players Challenge 180Speaking of games, congrats to all you Seahawk 12th Men out there – but what a horrible game.  The Super Bowl is supposed to be competitive.  I feel for all of you Denver fans. Go read Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst.  You’ll feel better.  Bad days happen.  (I’m a 49er fan – we already had our Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day.)

All righty then!  A quick little detour and we are adding things to the book list!  (Not that I’m above adding to my book list – please feel free to share.)  But let’s have one more look at  Happy Congratulations (which would be a fine name for a Chinese Restaurant, if you ask me):
