I’m “Twitterpated” for the New PPA Sketch Challenge!


Stampin up stampin' up! stamping stampinup pretty mary fish you plus me 2

Are you asking yourself, what in the world does “twitterpated” mean?  According to the Urban Dictionary it means:

1) to be completely enamored with someone/something.

2) the flighty exciting feeling you get when you think about/see the object of your affection.

After that quick lesson, you’ll understand why it’s such an appropriate stamp (and, indeed, an adorable font) for a Valentine.  It’s from the You Plus Me stamp set, new in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA236). Discover what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have dreamed up with this sketch and play along HERE!
