Hello my blogging companions,
how have you faired
through all the Holiday Mayhem??!!
Any new stamping goodies from
The Man in the Red Suit?
I won't lie, Santa brought me stamps,
he ever wrapped them and put them
amoungst the gifts under the tree!!
I was a good girl this year,
kept a clean house,
paid all my bills,
laid off the swear words a little...
Now that things are getting back to normal
and I can get back to being a good little blogger,
I have some fantastic news to share!!
As if somehow she already knew
I was thinking about branching out
and applying for a design team
or two or seven, lol,
invited me to join their challenge blog!!
How great is that?!?!
Have you seen the talent over there, my God!!
I will have to pull out all my best goodies &
learn some new techniques to keep up with them!!
So without further ado,
the challenge this week is:
And here is my sample,
a card I made for my dear husband,
as our "first-date" anniversary
is just around the bend:
I've created an PeepShow card,
I used a Fiskars circle lace punch
to dress up my peephole!!
The paper in from Graphic 45,
those darling little hAnglars
are painted with distress inks.
I've distressed my papers with Old Paper
and Vintage Photo inks,
I tried to sew, hahahaha,
don't look too closely, I've never sewn before!!
I had this little rinkydink handheld stitcher,
but that was a waste of $10!!!
I just entered the Big Leagues
with a real sewing machine I got for
my birthday this past December 29th, woohoo!!
And like a true paper addict,
the first thing I sewed was a card,
I might try my hand at hemming some jeans
or something a little more practical soon....
My sentiment is something I typed up
on my computer, ENTRUST, now that is heavy, lol.
But it makes perfect sense with the images,
so entrusting the key to my heart it is!!
I have some more sappyness to add to this card,
but figured I would spare anyone reading
of the extra sap-fest.
I've layered lace, velvet and hemp
and tied some charms on.
I want to stick roses on this SOOO BAD,
but it is for a MAN, so I won't :(
Are you still with me
through the Waffle-Fest???
I hope you'll pop in over at
and check out all of the gorgeous
Design Team works this week,
Simon Says will be sponsoring us this week,
so you're gonna wanna give this challenge a go!!
This is also going to be entered over at
I gave it a flip, as usual, lol, and
A Spoon Full Of Sugar
is hosting a HEART challenge,
and since that is pretty much the theme
to my card, you know, aside from the key...
Have a wonderful week!!
