Welcome back to the Sweet Stop! We hope you had a terrific week. Thanks to everyone who played along with last week's challenge. We loved seeing your wonderful creations!
We have a new sketch to share with you today, as well as some fun samples by our Design Team.
For those who are joining us for the first time today, I thought I'd go over the rules of this challenge, which are very simple:
1. Make a card or other project using the sketch provided.
2. Upload that project to your gallery or blog.
3. Leave a comment here including the link to your creation.
4. We love it when you use Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, but if you don't have any, you are welcome to use whatever you have.
5. The third week of each month we have a special "Sketch-with-a-Spin" challenge where we give you a theme to use in addition to the sketch in making your project (the next one will be on September 19th). For that week only each month, we offer a prize by random drawing to one challenge participant.
6. Except for the Sketch-with-a-Spin challenges, there are no time limits on these -- the sketches stay up on this blog permanently, so you can play along whenever you like.
That's all there is to it! We look forward to seeing what you all make this week. :-)

If you choose to play along this week, we ask that you make a card with a Fall or Back-to-School theme in addition to using the sketch. If you participate and leave us a comment with a link to your creation, you will be entered into a drawing to win the new School Girl Sally digi set (winner to be announced on Saturday). We hope you will be inspired to play, and can't wait to see what you make! :-)

Sketch with a Spin
Welcome to another Sweet Stop Saturday sketch challenge! It's the third Saturday of the month, which means it's time for our "Sketch with a Spin" challenge. This week, in addition to using the sketch, we ask that you make a card with a Fall or Back-To-School theme. Participants in this week's challenge will be entered to win the new "School Girl Sally" digi set -- the latest addition to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps line. In order to be entered to win, you must leave a comment here with the link to your creation. The winner will be chosen at random and announced here next Saturday. Without further ado, here are some samples created by our Design Team to get you thinking. Happy stamping, and have a terrific week! :-)

Hello Sweet Stop stampers! It's Saturday again, and do you know what that means? Yes! We have a new sketch for you, along with lots of inspiration from the Design Team!
Thanks to everyone who played along with last week's challenge -- it was so fun to see all the lovely things you made. We hope that you will find time to play along with us again this week. If you do, please upload your card to your blog or gallery, and then leave us a comment with the link. If you upload to a gallery, please use the keyword SSS16 so we can easily locate your creation. Also, just to clarify because a couple of people asked this last week -- all stampers are welcome to play along with these challenges, regardless of whether or not you have Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to use, although we do encourage you to use them if you have them.
