Happiness is...

Having your friends picked to be the featured stamper!!!! I was so thrilled when yet AGAIN, one of my friends was chosen as the Featured Stamper over on SCS. Silke Ledlow, best known in the SCS world as Sparklegirl, has one of the most distinctive styles I have ever seen. Her work is always so clean and crisp. She has a way with colors and embellishments that makes you wanna call your momma!! Silke was the first person I ever saw put the rhinestone brads through the big eyelets(as seen on my humble CASE) and I have been hooked ever since. Besides having a fabulous blog, and a gallery that requires you to wear a bib, she is also one of the sweetest people I have "met" so far on SCS(although, I have rarely run into one that isn't-I guess that is why it is the best stamping community ever). She is always quick to leave a comment on your card or blog and her words are always heartfelt and meaningful. Recently she and I have been emailing back and forth and I have enjoyed getting to know her better, and Silke, if I ever get to go to Germany, your coming too!!
I had a really hard time picking a card of hers to case, so I literally used to generate a number and I CASED the card that it picked, how's that for indecisive!!! As per the rules, you are required to change two things about the person's card. Her card was absolute perfection, so all I changed was the colors, sentiment, and added a few layers-yes, I know, it's a sickness!! I picked my color combo from the SU color wheel(man that thing rocks) and went from there. Nothing fancy on this, but I am now in mourning- I broke the lever on my corner rounder so I had to use my Martha Stewart punch, so if you would, please join me in welcoming my beloved corner rounder into stamping accessories heaven. LOL!!

Okay, I have so much to do today, and so much to get caught up on, and if that wasn't enough(and as if we haven't spent the whole weekend together), Travis' family is having a fish fry tonight, so I have to get busy!! Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!
