Paper Sweetie Blast from the Past Day 3 March 2018



Hello Sweeties!
This is our last day sharing PAPER SWEETIES oldies but goodies! Next month we will be introducing  brand new stamps and Sweet Cuts !

My card today features the pretty flowers  in the Hippity Hoppy Easter Wishes stamp set. If you saw my Day One post, you will remember that I used the sheep from this same stamp set.


The sentiment is from the Thanks stamp set and matching Sweet Cuts.

This is day two of sharing favorite stamps sets from PAPER SWEETIES!

The pretty wreath surrounding the bunny is from the Kindness Matters stamp set.


I just love the pretty spring colors of this sweet Easter card!

Paper Sweetie Blast from the Past March 2018


Hello Sweeties! 
 PAPER SWEETIES owner and creator DebbieMarcinkiewicz, and her husband have purchased a historic home here in North Carolina, which they hope to turn into a Bed & Breakfast Retreat! Debbie has had her hands full remodeling their new home! Therefore, we do not have a New Release here at PAPER SWEETIES this month. So, we are once again playing with some of our older favorites here at PAPER SWEETIES! It's hard to choose, because they are so many wonderful stamps and dies to choose from!!!

Today's card features the sweet little sheep from the Hippity Hoppity stamp set.


Counting sheep for a good night's sleep!
Doesn't that make you feel all warm and snuggly?


My teammates and I will be featuring lots of PAPER SWEETIE stamp sets today and tomorrow,
so please visit for some more inspiration and ideas how to use your PAPER SWEETIE favorites!
