U is for Ugly ~~ Ugly Paper that is

I don't know where our leader get's all these ideas from but this one is a doozy, Dig out the ugliest paper you have in your stash and make us at card for the Challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  I must admit I was very challenged with this one as my planning didn't include ugly paper or anything that matched, I must get better at packing for the challenges I plan on creating while at our cottage.  I am very pleased I did manage to get a week ahead on most of them.

You know that paper looks much uglier IRL, what ticked me was I have a stamp at home that would match the paper,  I used an old Hero Arts Stamp and the sketch from Stella Says Sketch,.

Here is a closer look at the paper and my newest project ~~ making the candy dots. I bought a toaster oven at a yard sale a few years ago to do crafts with but until today it was the first time I used it. Since I was at the cottage I put it outside on a tall table hubby made (perfect height) right in front of the electrical outlet that way I didn't stink up the cottage as the plastic melted.
