Before we get to what I have added to the growing pile of blog candy I just wanted to share another card I have made with one of the new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. This lovely lady is Lavinia and she can be found be clicking here. I wanted to give her an old school look worthy of this ultra cool steam punk girl. I found in my scrapbox some of my very first patterned paper from SU. I knew it would be perfect! I was able to make this card using all scraps except for the card base and image- yay Andrea!!! I then added ribbon and pearls just to give some extra pizzaz. I am really pleased with how she turned out and I have to thank one of our guest DT Donna for the hair tips. She doesn't know she gave me some but I brought up a pic of Lavinia she already did so I could copy how she did the hair tee hee. Thanks Donna!
Today's card is for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant challenge blog featuring KK stamps. It was to make a birthday card. I thought the saying Life is a Journey would be great for a birthday, a milestone event or just anything! I used a fantastic sketch I found over at the CPS blog which is an amazing source of layouts for cards. Great for the layout challenged girl like moi.
Okay have I dragged it on long enough tee hee. First thank you all so very very much for the overwhelming kind words I have been receiving about my creations and my blog. I am truly touched and I can't wait for some time to sit down and visit each and everyone of your blogs too. I have to say that I am so blessed that many of you found your way here following the candy trail and decided to stay. Thank you!!! So we are one week in and I have already surpassed the first checkpoint of hitting 100 followers. We have made it up to 119 at last count!!! I have added a massive pile of ribbon and buttons (some clear ones which I love to alter) and let me tell you I better start digging around for a box to start packing all the goodies into! I already warned my hubby it is going to cost some $$ to mail it but that it is all worth it. Now for the next milestone- if I hit 200 followers by Jan 31st I will add 3 Copic Ciao markers- colours of your choice! If you already own all the Ciao's we will work out something with either Sketch copics or reinkers. Sound good? I will probably toss in some stamps, etc if we hit 150 too. So thank you to those of you helping to spread the word- I am so grateful!
