Sweet Pea Blog Hop Featuring the Artwork Of Caron Vinson

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Blog Hop...featuring the work of Caron Vinson. I used her image Blue Fairy in my card today. I had to go against the grain and make my "Blue" Fairy Pink! I colored her using Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils and I love the effect they give! For the embellishments, I used some glittery paper, some awesome flowers and the prettiest pink ruffled ribbon for May arts.

Well, Bombshells... It Has Been a Good Run!

I made this card for the Bombshell Stamps Sketch challenge.
I have had to resign my Bombshell position because I have been very busy lately with getting my daughter ready for school and ballet twice a week, getting my son ready for Gymboree twice a week,adopting a new dog, becoming a consultant for Thirty One Gifts and my Hubby quitting his job of 9 years to start his own business! YIPEE!!! Can you say stress???
Anyway... my "happy place" through the stress has been stamping... but I don't need anymore deadlines... So I bid farewell to Bombshell stamps which makes me kinda sad because I don't think I will ever be able to truly be called a bombshell again... at least without surgery!!! LOL.
Thanks for popping in!!!

Woodware Color Challenge... Kraft, Red and Your Choice!

So I chose white! I am a card maker that tends to get a little carried away with the bling and glitz on a card... so I was really happy when I came up with this! I love the look... the technique is fun and it is still a clean looking card! I punched some flowers with my new SU dial a punch and adhered them to the crumb cake card stock... AKA craft. Then I ran it through the cuttlebug in an embossing folder and I got this super cool card! Whee!!! I tied the red and white polka dot ribbon and added the sentiment from Birdsong... and here it is! I hope that you like this look and will try this technique...AND don't forget to play along with us at WOODWARE USA this week... what color will you choose?
