Oh Boy....

This card KICKED MY BUTT!! Seriously, I am still not happy with it, and I am posting it anyway because when you spend THREE HOURS working on a CASE, people need to see why!!LOL!!
This is my card for this week's Featured Stamper challenge. This week's Featured Stamper is Darlene(akronstamperdpk). She has a fun filled gallery, and I chose this card to CASE. For my card, I used the new My Favorite Things set, Plant a Seed of Love. I started by stamping my image on an MFT Perfect Panel, then I colored it in with my Copics.
The cardstock colors are Rich Razzleberry, Kiwi Kiss, and Creamy Carmel. I used some retired SU DSP, but the name escapes me...sorry. My ribbon is from SU, as well as the brads, but the spiral clips are not. I messed up my sentiment, so I punched one out with my scalloped oval and put it over it...yep, I hate it but it is what it is!!
So it isn't the worst thing I have ever made, but it CERTAINLY is not what I expected and DOES NOT do this gorgeous new image justice!!

Before I went into my migraine funk, I made a card for last week's Featured Stamper challenge. Last week's Featured Stamper was my fellow Trend Setter, Joanne(jojot).
I chose this card of hers. For my bee's, I used the Whipper Snapper set, Little Critters. The DP is from the Imaginisce Twitterpated line. I used my SU Oval punch for the main images which were colored with my Copics. The border punch is from SU, and I added some silver brads along the edge. The colors are So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Real Red. The ribbons are from SU, and the spiral clips are from Joanne's. I added some glitter with my Sakura Stardust glitter pen to their wings.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!


Hello everyone!! Earlier this week I came down with the worst migraine I have ever had. I was so sick from it, I could barely open my eyes or sit up. I spent three days in bed and could only check my email if I wore sunglasses in my dark bedroom. It was AWFUL. I also didn't eat for almost two days due to the nausea, so I got pretty weak. I am just now getting back to stamping and I am WAY behind. I missed it, but I am having the hardest time getting my mojo back. Since this month's My Favorite Things teasers started today, I thought I better start there...good idea huh!
I decided to do this week's MFT sketch using the soon to be released Coffee? Tea? set. I stamped my image on an MFT Perfect Panel and some Cottage Wall DSP from SU. I then paper pieced the dress and colored the rest with Copics. My cardstock is Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence. All the DP is from SU, and the accessories are from SU as well except the spiral clips.

For more info on this week's sketch, check out this thread here!! I will be back tomorrow with another teaser or two!! Thanks for stopping by!
