Prettie Wednesday-Jess's Color Challenge

So, two weeks ago my pal Jess(pinkgirl76) challenged all the Prettie girls to make a card using Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Baja Breeze(or similar colors) and I gotta tell you, I LOVE this combo. Not only do I LOVE this combo, I LOVE my card. This was my first time using my Lovebugs set(from Paper Pretties), and it is SO CUTE!! I was going to use both of the bugs, but I got this little cutie colored first and decided it was time to stop...she was just too cute all on her own. I started by stamping her on Gina K. white with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. I then colored her in using my SU markers, re inkers and a blender pen, and then covered all the Baja parts with some December Sky Shimmerz. I then cut and embossed her with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties. I don't know who I saw do it first, but I decided to alternate from scalloped to regular ovals so that I could use most of the challenge colors as her matte, and I LOVE it. The spiral clips were a Christmas gift from my super sweet SS Jackie P.(does that girl know me or what)!! I added some Baja Breeze striped ribbon to finish them off. The base was run through my Cuttlebug with the Argyle folder and the DP is from the Murifield DSP. I stamped half my sentiment on the outside, and then finished it on the inside. The dot after my were added with my SU black marker. THis card is on it's way to Jackie R.(babitoons), hope she likes it!! Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to blurf around and see all the rest of the DT's creations for this challenge. If you want to, and we REALLY want you to, why don't you play along!! Just leave us a link here so we can all ooogle your goodies, LOL!!
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!!

Sent With Love

I got my new There She Goes stamps in the mail yesterday, and I couldn't WAIT to get them much so that I accidentally ripped one in half...ACKKKK!! How totally sad is that?? Before you ask, I already emailed Jessica and even though it was TOTALLY my fault, she has already sent me a new how sweet is that!! It had nothing to do with the stamp...that is why they tell you to peel them off carefully...can you imagine the look on my face when I only had half of a fire hydrant in my hand...geez. So, after I got over the initial shock and following sadness(then I felt really stupid), I decided to use my new Special Delivery set to make a card for today's SCS sketch challenge. I love to do challenges, but seriously, why are there so many good ones...I want to do them all, but if I did, I wouldn't leave my stamp table!! I started by stamping my mailbox image twice. I colored them both with my SU markers and I cut out the mail box part and the grass. I then stamped the hearts separately and popped them up. The image was layered with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I used my SU scallop square punch to layer with my sentiment, and all the ribbons are from SU. The DP is Basic Grey's Bittersweet, which I got at Paper Addiction.The white layer was run through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. Isn't this set so CUTE!! I love it!! Well, that is it for me now...gotta go work on some Verve challenges!! Thanks for stopping by, yet again...have a great day!!

Welcome To The Hop!!

Hey, and welcome to this month's My Favorite Things Blog Hop!! This month we are releasing 4 FABULOUS sets along with some VERY exciting stuff in the store...make sure you check out the My Favorite Things member forum for all the details!! The hop started at Kim's blog, so if you haven't started there, go there now and take the whole tour!! Hopefully you are now joining me from Holly's blog!! Okay, here are the details!! My Favorite Things will be having a release cocktail party tonight, Wednesday, January 8th from 9 to 10pmEST in the MFT member forum on SCS. For my peek today, I am using the new Stephanie Fizer set, Owl For All Seasons. It is one of my FAVORITE sets of hers so far...but I have a feeling she will continue to add new favorites to my list!! I used my new favorite paper from SU, Murifield. I paired it with Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. The owls were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then they were colored in using my SU markers, re inkers, and a blender pen. The image was cut out with my Oval Nesties and Cuttlebug. The bottom white panel was embossed with my Argyle folder after stamping my sentiment. I added some silver star brads from the Stylized Silver Hardware from SU. The stars were made with my SU star punches. All my ribbon is from SU too, the only thing that isn't is the spiral clip.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the hop!!
