How is everybody in Blogland?
Good, I hope!!
Me, I shouldn't complain, but I likely will before the end of my post!!
Yeah, not funny, but yet, I keep on trying to crack jokes, when will I learn...
So the purpose of my post is not to bore you with lame jokes, but instead, to tell you about a fun, good-spirited challenge that is being hosted off of The Stamping Bazaars store blog, we are hosting an Operation Write Home challenge that will be open until October 8th. Essentially, what you will need to do is make a card, blank on the inside and following the general guidelines of the OWH organization, read about them HERE, and then TSB is asking, that in order to be eligible for the prizes, which are fabulous by the way, that you link our challenge up in your blog post and come back to TSB's store blog and leave us a link to your project. You can read all about the challenge HERE as well as feast your eyes on the sneak peeks of Marina Neira's up and coming digital releases. Tonight, I get to showcase a very lovely design, she is called Jolly Josie and she is just as sweet as can be!!
I have coloured the little furball in distress inks and intensified the colours with pencil in some areas, then redefining with a copic sketch pen and added just a bit of stickles to the white trims of the image. I've used a combination of papers by Magnolia (holly) and Imaginisce (stripes) along with vintage photo distress ink and a MS doily punch, the ribbon and gingham are from my stash.
The flowers are by I Am Roses (big brown ones) and prima (white) and I used a small ek success retro flower punch over K & Co. paper for the teeny flowers, the leaves and rose buds are from my stash.
I hope you can hop on over to The Stamping Bazaar because the post that went up tonight is incredible, there are tons of gorgeous projects that we all have been working on and I tell ya, you won't be disappointed!! The team is stuffed full of talent and they have helped to bring Marinas new designs to life in the most wonderful ways!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog,
I truly appreciate each and every visit!!
Til next time, stephanne
