You Go Girl!!

Today's Featured Stamper is Shannon(e3stamper), and what a stamper she is!! Not only is she a talented stamper, she is also a super sweetie who leaves the best comments. I chose this card of hers to CASE. I changed everything but the layout, but I didn't mean to this time. I forgot about the sentiment, so my paper was to dark and I had to add it as another panel. I tried my ribbon the way she had it, but it looked better like this, so I went with it. Plus, seriously, I HAD to add brads to it..SERIOUSLY(anyone else as EXCITED about the return of Greys Anatomy as I am??)!! This main image and sentiment are for my SUPAH CUTE new set, Harvest Blessings, from Whipper Snapper. They were just released a week ago and they are TO DIE FOR!! They were designed by the fabulous Anna Wight, who along with the owners of Whipper Snapper, asked me to be Featured Designer this month!! I can't tell you how excited I am to be working with them, and SweetMissDaisy herself, she is amazing!! I stamps Sally the Scarecrow(not officially her name, but I want to be sure that there is no confusion that she is a girl, see the dress) on white cardstock with Black Stazon ink. I then colored her in with my SU markers and layered her with some Really Rust, Bravo Burgandy, and Chocolate Chip paper. The paper is some from my ever growing stack of paper scraps that will soon take over my whole stamp area if I don't start to use them. With that said, I have no clue where it came from because it's a scrap, sorry!I added a bunch of piercing, copper brads, and some yummy wide stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon. The sentiment was stamped and then punched out with my SU oval punches.

Well, that is it for me now...I have about 70 baby announcements to make, and he isn't getting any younger!!LOL!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Don't forget to check out my last post to see how you can be entered to win the biggest blog candy giveaway ever(next post)!!

World Alzheimers Day

Today is World Alzheimer's Day, and if you don't know someone affected by this terrible disease, well consider yourself lucky and part of the minority. Truth is over 5 million people suffer from this debilitating disease, and that is not counting the family, friends and loved ones that suffer along with them. A few weeks ago, my pal Carolyn King(cammie) who lost her grandmother this summer to complications from this disease, decided that she was going to do something to help the cause. First she designed this super cute set for Gina K. Designs. It is called Whimsical Autumn, and ALL of her commissions from the set are being donated to the Alzheimer's foundation. Next, as if that wasn't enough, she has quite literally, arranged the BIGGEST BLOG CANDY EVER!!! Carolyn is offering up this HUGE amount of blog candy to ONE lucky person!! Awesome right......there is a catch, and lets face is the LEAST we can all do!! Be sure to check out her blog for more details about how you can enter to win and to see all the fabulousness that she has had donated to her giveaway. I was honored when she contacted me a few weeks ago and asked for a donation. All she asked from me is a card with the back signed by me to include as a prize. Of course, I couldn't just send a card, so I sent this whole pile of goodies!! Most of it is stuff I have duplicates of, because, well...I am addicted!! SOOO, be sure to go check out her blog and do your part to support this worthy cause, and just think, you could be the lucky winner of this AMAZING pile of GOODNESS!! Don't stampers just rock!!!
