The Sweet Stop.....

Good Morning!!
Hope everyone had a great week!
Well it is Saturday again so that means it
is time for another fabulous sketch over at
The Sweet Stop!!  I got some new
DT stamps from Vilda Stamps so
I had to use one:

I think the cradle looks vintagey so I went
in that direction.  I paper pieced the majority of it
and colored only the the body with distress inks.
Papers: Tim Holtz
Stamps: Vilda Stamps, Cornish Heritage Farms
Accessories: Brass hardware ~ Mikes, clothespin
and heart ~ Hobby Lobby, Its a boy tag ~ MME

If you like this one I will have a similar one coming soon
with a girly cradle.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you
all have a wonderful week-end!! Today we are
off to build school bus pencil cases at Home Depot!!
The girls will be sad when this ends!! LOL
