So, two weeks ago, Danille(dlounds), challenged all the Prettie Girls to make a card using our heat gun. It didn't matter how you used it, you just had to use it....grrrr. My heat gun and I don't get along very well. Okay, it isn't the heat guns fault, I am just lazy and I hate to emboss, LOL!!! I know there are lots of creative ways to use your heat gun, and I know I SHOULD of done something more inventive, but I didn't, ehehehe!! I stamped the image and sentiment from the Paper Pretties set, Sweets For the Sweet, with Chocolate Chip craft ink and then embossed it with Clear Detail EP. I colored the image in with my SU markers and then outlined it with my Cool Grey Copic(C3). The image was then layered with Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip. The colors were drawn from my Sweet Always DP from SU. I added some piercing and silver brads and then some Chocolate Organdy. Since I felt like a cheater, hehe, I did heat the organdy to give it a crinkled look...so cool right(I KNOW, I am a total cheater but seriously...). I followed today's SCS sketch challenge for my card too, go me!! LOL!!! Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Be sure to check out the Prettie Girls to see what they have been up to!!

I gotta tell you, whoever was the "inventor" of the blog hop is a GENIUS!! I think they are SO FUN, don't you? What's a blog hop you ask? Well, today's hop starts at Kim's, the MFT lady, blog. From there, she will link you to the next blog in the hop and each blog you hop to will link you to the next one and so on and so on. Along the way, you will get to see a TON of EYE candy using the soon to be released sets from My Favorite Things. So, if you are here, and you haven't been to Kim's blog, head there now!! Okay, you back?? GOOD!! My card, or actually set of cards, was made using the Isabelle Paper Dolls set designed by the SUPER talented Stephanie Fizer. This set is SUPER cute and SO FUN!! I am sure you have seen some of the FABULOUS sets made by the other DT members, and I can't wait to make some with my nieces, but first, I wanted to make this set of invitations. I am having all my nieces, and my little cousin Mallory, come stay the night soon and we are going to have a mini Christmas party. I have already bought them matching Christmas PJ's, and we are going to go look at Christmas lights, make Paper Dolls, eat pizza and Christmas cookies( that we will make), and watch back to back DVDs of Hannah Montana(ugggh)!! Doesn't that sound like FUN!! Anyway, back to the cards!! I made them as simple as possible, mostly because I hate to mass produce, and the more involved they are, the more I dislike them. I stamped each Isabelle with Black Stazon on PTI white and colored each of them to look like my nieces( I even made them in their favorite colors...go me!!) The DP is all retired SU, and uses Real Red for Mallory, Apricot Appeal for Katelyn, Wild Wasabi for Madison, Lovely Lilac for Taylor, and Pretty in Pink for Samantha. I used my Fiskars cutter and scoring blade to make the score lines at the bottom, Bella Baubles, and some white organdy. The sentiment is from the MFT set Shower Time.
So, what do you think??? They are gonna be SO EXCITED!!! Now, I am not gonna lie....I usually dread these sleepovers, only because it is SO much noise all at once....but I love my girls and I can't wait to have them here!!
Well, that is it for me now!! For the next stop on the hop, head to the SUPER TALENTED, Lauren Meader's, blog!! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you at the release party tonight in the MFT member forum!! It starts at 9pm EST, so be there or be.....yep you guessed it!!
