pocket card for the challenge for the Stampin' for the Weekend blog. It was to make a pocket card. I found this really cute idea and I knew that Baby Horatio from Paper Makeup was perfect for this! I wanted to make her pink because I LOVE pink! Pink and kraft paper together is yummy! I used my copic markers to color her in and she is so soft and sweet and sleepy! My friend Nancy did the same card style and you can see my cards "twin" here! Our daughters were at Gymboree and we got some stamp time, free of "helpers!"
On the inside of this card, I embossed pink flourishes and on the card, I added little flowers and some gems to match her sparkly cloud! I used Shimmerz on the cloud and I LOVE the effect that it has! Some clouds have a silver lining and this cloud IS a gold lining all over the place! I used the SU tab punch and a cute little rub on for the words. Then, I used the glitter pen to add the dots for some more sparkle! So check out the challenge when you can and play along!
Paper Makeup is sponsoring this weeks challenge and you have a chance at a fun and fabby prize! Thanks for stopping by!!!

I never did this before and the end result is awesome and this is the easiest technique ever! The best part is for those who do not like to get a "messy" glitter card, they WON'T... the glitter stays PUT! I used this super cute cupcake image from DRS and colored it with copic markers . Then, I did the technique(click on the link for the info) and then I put the card together! This was QUICK, fun and sooo sparkly and pretty!!!
We would love for y'all to play along with us and please link your card here so we can OOOHHH and AHHHH at your awesome creations! Thanks for popping in!!!

I also used the colors for the Copic Color Challenge Blog. I did not have all of them... but I used what I had and I thought that it worked out really nicely! Petite Diva has been at camp all week and I have had my mornings free to CREATE!!! Yahoo! It was really nice and the big payoff was seeing how much fun she had at camp! We went for her performance today and I asked her what her favorite part was and she said "Seeing you, Momma!" I ADORE that child! Anyway... thanks for looking and get out your
Paper Makeup stamps for a Play Along Saturday Challenge!!!See ya then...

Anyway...some EXCITING NEWS about Paper Makeup Stamps!! There is usually a Super Tuesday Sale each month...but because we are participating in a CLEARANCE event being held by Scrapbooking Roads. The event starts TODAY will run thru the 23rd! With the current economy being what it is, Katie decided to cut you a little break on some prices! (Isn't she fabulous??!) There are items in every category on the site with reduced prices (exception, the PMS copic prices are ALREADY reduced, so they'll remain at $5.50). BUT there is a catch! There is a limited quantity that varies per item. Once that quantity is sold, the price will return to it's normal price. SOOO Shop now to get what ya want... what are ya waiting for??? GOOOO!!!

There is a DRS new releases this Saturday and if you have come to me on accident, then go to Vicki's blog not to miss a moment of DRS new release goodness. If you are coming from Vicki's blog the next stop after me will be... My fantastically talented stamping friend, Heather! For this card, I colored the new golf sentiment with copics and SHIMMERZ for the green.In case you can't see... in the letters there are golfing images... G has grass, O has golf balls, L has flags and F has tees. How cute is that? I used DRS's easy background stamps... grass and stars. I made this card a triple shutter card and inside I used a great golf sentiment... and I really like how this turned out!
I added some ribbon on the final panel that I threaded Through some eyelets. This card was fun to make and I am sure that this will excite any golfer on your card list!!!
Now about those prizes! The drawing for the blog candy will take place 7 AM, Saturday June 13th. The candy will be given away from comments left on the blog post for Thursday through drawing time on Saturday!

I made this card today using the DRS butterfly stamps (I used number C119 and D117). I said bountiful in my post title because DRS certainly does have tons of butterfly stamps. Main images, ribbon slides, butterfly sayings, butterfly backgrounds and even butterfly card edgers! If you love butterflies, DRS is the place for you!
And I have to give credit to my gal Heather Reppen for this sketch. I totally cased it from her and it worked out awesome for this card! So thanks, Heather... You are awesome!!!
I used my gamsol and colored pencils for the coloring and added gel and glitter pens for the details. I used the bubble easy background for the background dots and I love the dimension that it adds...not to much... just enough! I had this awesome matching ribbon and added dew drops to accent the shape of the circle. For the inside, I used the Butterfly quote from Hans Christian Anderson on the inside. It is one of my favorites and I know that you will love it too! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you enjoyed the bountiful butterflies from DRS and please go and check them out!
