This week I created an adorable Foxy Friends Happy Raccoon card featuring A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack. You are going to love the Foxy Friends bundle! On that note, I’m excited to be home where I can spread out and make a mess in my craft room.
Since it is Wednesday, you know what that means… I’m over at the Paper Craft Crew for the Weekly Challenge! Come on over and check out the Designer Series Paper challenge. The challenge starts today and ends on Monday, August 15th at 9:30 PM EST.
Travel Adventures of Sunny Girl Scraps!
The past 1 1/2 months of travel have been a blast. Caleb and I have traveled from North Carolina to the Black Hills of South Dakota onto Northern Minnesota. Our trip has been amazing. But, we missed Mike after we had to send him home at the 2 week point on our trip.
Our travels homeward, started as we began the trek south to St. Charles IL where my cousins live. We followed my parents as the final leg of our journey started. After an overnight stay in St. Charles, Caleb went on his way with Grandma and Grandpa for 3 whole days without me as they continued to South Bend, IN. Meanwhile, I stayed in Schaumburg, IL for a few days of business related training for my Stampin’ Up! business.
Falling Hard at the Gathering for Greatness – Chicago
I had an amazing 3 days at the Gathering for Greatness event. Lisa Pretto and Janet Wakeland knocked this training out of the park. The focus was on building our businesses, learning from each other and sharing ideas. I’m thankful for the opportunity to attend. I really enjoy investing time into my business and learning from others is so important.
The Gathering for Greatness event wasn’t without some drama and trauma for me. Before the event began on Thursday, I decided to get into a tussle with the cement sidewalk and didn’t win! Concrete is hard! I hit my head pretty hard which probably resulted in a mild concussion although I refused to go to the hospital. The right side of my body was really banged up and bruised. I also had some really nasty road rash. The Schaumburg Fire Department Paramedics were cute and helped get me patched up.

Designer Series Paper Theme Challenge #206
The Foxy Friends is such a cute stamp set. You can create so many adorable critters with this stamp set. I was very disappointed when my Foxy Friends Stamp Set didn’t arrive before I left on vacation.
During the Gathering for Greatness event, I won a prize patrol and was able to select A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack which is perfect for the Designer Series Paper Challenge. This 6″x6″ paper stack is totally awesome. You’ll love how it coordinates with the Foxy Friends stamp set.
Sunny Girl Scraps Stampin’ Tips:
- The standard hand stamped card size is an A2 Folded Card and the measurements are 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
- Designer Series Paper is a quick, easy way to dress up a card without a lot of extra fussy work. I used A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack on this weeks card as the background which enhances the theme coordinating with my cute Foxy Friends Happy Raccoon.
- Punches are awesome tools!
