Hello again, I'm BACK!! Jared has been SUPER today, so I was able to get some more stamping time in..gotta love that!! In fact, I was even able to get to the post office and get a ton of stuff mailed out....so happy he is getting bigger and starting to have more good days than bad. Anyway, I decided to work on today's My Favorite Things Sketch. This weeks sketch was created by Cindy, and is super fabulous!! On the actual sketch, there are three panels under the main image, I did two with my Bella Rose DSP and then left the "third" on blank so I could stamp my sentiment. Now I know what you are thinking, it looks like one big panel...don't blame me...blame that super wide FABULOUS ribbon!! I stamped my Flopsey on Whisper White and colored him in with my SU markers, re inkers and blender pen(okay, so by now, you are totally sensing a pattern...I haven't cleaned my stamp table since Tuesdays color challenge...baddd stamper, that is why ALL my cards have the same supplies mostly...LOL). I added a spiral clip with some chocolate chip grosgrain and pink gingham to the top corner as well as some flowers from the SU Felt Fusion 2 set. My white brads came from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts....did you know that they sell brads and ribbon to match almost all the SU colors....AWESOME!! I got the Neutrals set and got the white brads you see here along with Vanilla, Sand, and a couple other colors...VERY cool. Well, that is all for me for now...I have tons of commenting and blurfing and all of that to do, and Jared is still being good, so busy busy!! Thanks for stopping by again and have a great day!!! Oh yaaaaaa, this will be going to the SCS card drive too....be sure to check it out!! Details in my last post or at the SCS homepage!

So, unless you live under a rock, you are probably aware of the fact that this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. On SCS, they are dedicated this weeks challenges to the cause, so it is Pink Week on SCS. All of the weekly challenges have a pink theme(optional of course), and if you choose, which I totally do, you can send your creations into the chosen organization, which is Chemo Angels. Since I am terrible about explaining things, here is the link to the front page story at SCS, and it will link you on further to the details. Today's Ways To Use It challenge was to focus on just one word on your card. You were allowed to include a main image too, as long as there was only one word on the card. I chose Hope(from my NEW Hampton Arts sentiment set Lee sent me), because honestly, it says it all. My image is from Stamping Bella, and is called Causabella. I stamped Bella twice; once on Whisper White and once on my Bella Rose DSP. I paper pieced the dress and then colored the rest with my SU markers, re inkers, and a blender pen. The colors on this card are Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red. I did a lot of piercing and added a ton of silver brads. The panel under the image is some more Bella Rose DSP and it has a piece of the new Pink Pirouette ribbon from SU as well as a piece of red taffeta. I used one of the ribbon slides from the Stylized Silver Hardware as well as a square frame. My sentiment panel was created using my Scallop Square Punch, a 1 in square piece of Pink Pirouette, and my white Hope panel that was punched out with my Large Oval Punch. By the way, my sketch is from Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch from this week. Hopefully, my nephew will stay asleep long enough for me to work on the MFT sketch challenge, it is awesome!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
