Who's That Girl Monday- Nature Calls

So, I know it is shameful, but here is yet ANOTHER My Favorite Things set that hasn't seen ink since I bought it!! That is what I LOVE about the MFT member forum challenges...they force me to ink up my unused sets. This weeks Who's That Girl challenge is being hosted by my friend Laura(lov'n life n vegas), and the challenge was to use the MFT set Nature Calls and to also use up some scraps. Well, since I have a TON of those laying around, that was EASY for me!! I didn't mean to end up with a monochromatic card, but I LOVE it. Recently, on Facebook, I have reconnected with some old friends, and I wanted to make a card to send to them to let them know that I miss them....get it, I MOOSE you, LOL!! The sentiment is from the coordinating, What's Your Sign set. Isn't it cute!! I stamped the moose image with Black Stazon ink and colored it in with my SU markers. I did the outline with my Cool Grey Copic(C3). The DSP is from the Close To Cocoa DSP(retired) from SU and also from the Ski Slope DSP, in fact, the Ski Slope is actually two small pieces I just have peeking out..yayy me!! I added a ton of white brads and some felt Alpine Originals ribbon from SU. The punches that were used to make my sentiment panel are all from SU. I was going to wait and post this til tomorrow, but I have to go to my sister's to watch Jared tomorrow...wish me luck. He is getting the second round of his vaccinations, and I am TERRIFIED he will have a reaction again*. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

*He had an injection sight reaction to the shots that they gave him the first time that he got vaccinated. He had skinny little chicken legs when he first got the shots, so we are HOPEing that now that he actually has some fat on him that he won't react. I am still terrified though..........

Featured Stamper Sunday

Here is my card for this week's Featured Stamper...and I am up WAY to late, so bare with me!! This weeks Featured Stamper is Elizabeth(ebethneu) and she has a FABULOUS gallery!! It is full of funky and fabulous creations that are AWESOME to look at...very hard to reproduce(or maybe it is still the whole up late thing)!! I chose this card of hers to CASE, due to the fact that I received this GORGEOUS image(bought from Sweet n Sassy, part of the Rachel Anne Miller collection, it is called Cute Kitty) from my pal Jodi(kharmagirl) in the mail today, THANKS JODI!!! I have been eyeing this paper that I got from Paper Pretties, so that is where I drew my colors. It is from the Paper Salon Pristine collection(which is still on sale for 75%off at Paper Pretties...AWESOME!!). I used Sage Shadow, Regal Rose and Close To Cocoa. My image was colored with SU markers and outlined with a Warm Grey No.3 marker from Copic. I followed her sketch almost exactly and TRIED to keep the embellishments the same. I added a bunch of pink felt flowers with silver brads to two corners and added some BLING from Mark Richards in the other corners as well as on her hair bows and the little star burst thingies....sorry, I have NO CLUE what they are supposed to be, but they are cute..LOL!! I went a little further and added my normal piercing and spiral clips, but hey...I TRIED. Isn't this CUTE!!! I can't figure out why I am getting that weird line on the hand, but I don't see it in real life(AGAIN, may be the up late thing). Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!! as I am typing this I just realized that this was a previous sketch challenge!! I REALLY try NOT to do that, but I loved her card, so oh well!!
