Check Me Out!!

Look who's the featured stamper on Queen Kat Design's blog!! I think you guessed it by now!!!! I also received two RAK's in the mail today. The first is from Carolina(craftycaro) congratulating me for winning the guest designer challenge for My Favorite things. Isn't it so super cute!! thanks Carolina.
The second is from Juanita(schmoopie). I had inquired on here about starting an RAK group, and she was one of the few wonderful people that responded. Ever since then, I have been sending her RAK's just because. Isn't she a sweetie!!

That's all for now!! Hope you are having a great day!!!

Simply Special Sneak Peek No.2!!!

Hey everyone, hope all is well where you are!!! This is day two of my sneak peeks for Paper Pretties, and I couldn't be more excited. We even launched our new and improved website today!!YAYYY!!! So if you haven't checked it out, what are you waiting for!!LOL Paper Pretties will be releasing 3 new stamp sets on Friday at our Prettie Pajama Party!! The fun starts at 8EST(7CST) so be sure to be there to chat, stamp, win prizes, and of course SHOP!! My card today was made using the new set Simply Special. I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it in with my SU markers and aquapainter. I highlighted some areas with my white gel pen and then outline the whole image with my Prismacolor cool grey marker. I wanted to participate in the sketch challenge over on SCS, but don't have any kind of oval cutter yet(got an email today saying my ovals were postal, yayy!!), so I had to improvise. I used my circle Nestabilities and cut out two circle from Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Cranberry Crisp and Recollections DSP. Then I layered them together to form an "oval like shape". I think it works. I put three organdy ribbons around it and tied bows, added three brads in each corner, and then stamped the sentiment from this set at the bottom. At the last minute, I decided to sponge the edges to soften up the Very Vanilla. Well, that is all for me now!! More sneak peeks later and I hope to see you at the party on Friday!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
