More "Pun" with Paper...SSS#162 and TSG164

"Scent-sational" stamp set from There She Goes
Thank you, Morag (dear sister), for dubbing my last TEXT posting... Perfect title for this one, too!

This past May I was a participant in, and lucky winner of, the "Mother of All Blog Hops" sponsored by There She Goes Clear Stamps
The grand prize was 6-months' worth of new release stamps. The first package just arrived yesterday, and included THIS SET designed by Melyssa Connelly.
It is full of stinkin' cute skunk images and perfectly punny sentiments. 
I decided there was still time to send one more entry to this months' Sweet Sunday Sketch #162. And to join in the weekly challenge (TSG164) at There She Goes, which is to use stitching on your project.
I used some machine sewing, but also "stitched" a scallop ribbon border with this tool, from 
We R Memory Keepers:
It was simple to use and there are other designs available. I bought mine at Archiver's.
The featured Trendsetter this week is the wonderfully artistic Wendy Ramlakhan. She posted a video tutorial on how to create a cloudy background for your stamped image (use link above to go to Wendy's blog). So I tried that out, too. Here's my attempt:
A little too subtle, perhaps, I may try another colour next time, but it gives a great effect!
So thanks for bearing with another post this week...
Enjoy the weekend! Outside, no crafting allowed!
