happy Sunday to everybody!!
I have a card to share today,
it's for our midway reminder post
over at CLP Sketches!!
Did I mention, I am perhaps the luckiest stamper alive??!?! Last year, and by that, I'm talking 2010.... I was in a Secret Santa swap and my Secret Santa sent me the most gorgeous card, an AMAZING chocolate bar and this wonderful hÄnglar stamp, which I am only just now using, shame on me!! It's been around, beckoning me for some tender lovin', so I finally gave in and made this card. It's supposed to be a Valentines Day card, looks a little Christmassy though, eh?
I've used distress inks to paint, a Nesties die for the shape, a Magnolia die for the border, K & Co. papers, and scrummy nummy flowers are a mixture of many companies. I looked to the amazing stick-pen maker Elise for reference when I put mine together, thanks for the inspiration, dear friend!! Hers are, of course, way better, lol, but you know, gotta start somewheres... I've distressed in Walnut Stain this time around and uhhh, the pearls are by Kaiser. I've also added a bit of Tim Holtz Crackle Paint to the heart and stickled the wings.
I'm going to pop this in over at
Everybody Arts Shabby challenge
PaperPlay's In Stitches challenge
Stampin for the Weekend's Out With The Old challenge... ALL of it, in particular, the poor, neglected stamp!!
The Pixie Cottage's stitching challenge
Truly Scrumptious's Shabby Pastels and paint challenge (crackle paint on heart)
Okay, well, thanks to all who pop by to visit!!
I understand that my blog has not been allowing people to comment for quite a while now, which, of course, makes me sad, lol!! Nobody loves me :( Hehehehe. So I have changed the window of my comment box, hopefully that will make a difference, as I think there may have been a conflict between my blogger coding and the style on commenting. We shall see!! In the meantime, thanks for trying!!! Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
