A "Sweet" Whimsie Doodles Sneak!

(Mom if you don't want to see the Halloween card I am going to give you this year then
STOP reading and exit right now!! LOL!! )

Today was one of those fortuitous days when things happened to line up just right. I knew I had to post the sneak peek for Whimsie Doodles before tomorrow's release but I also had to post my Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch card today. So, I decided to combine two assignments into one card!! And then in addition to that, the card I made also fits this week's challenge at the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog! How lucky is that??

Here is the today's sketch that you can use for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This week is not sponsored, so there aren't any prizes to be awarded, but we would still love for you to play along.

And here is the card I made that combines the above sketch with the soon-to-be released Voodoo Mummy and the Digital Tuesday challenge to include a heart on your project.

The striped DP is from MM and the Boo paper is from DCWV. I used my Recollections black cardstock as the base and matting for the image.

To create the brick wall that the Voodoo Mummy is sitting on, I masked the mummy image and used a background stamp from Stampin' Up with Really Rust SU ink. I shaded it with a little of c1 colored Copic Marker. The mummy is also colored with Copics. Coloring things that are white can be a challenge, but in this case I added some shades of tan and peach to give a skin color and also a worn, dirty look on the bandages. Then for a little pop of color I made the safety pin orange, the heart red and the button eye green!! I just love Melyssa's images!!

I thought the gauze that I added as the two accent strips next to the main image was a fun idea. I was trying to mimic the mummy's gauze wrap! Not sure I did, but I tried!! :-)

Now, for YOUR assignments....

Please go to the Whimsie Doodles Blog and leave a comment for Melyssa. She is going to pick one lucky winner from the comments on each of the sneak peeks to win that image. Good Luck with that!! Remember that all three images we have shown you this week go on sale beginning tomorrow (Thursday, Oct. 1st.)

Also head over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see what the rest of the DT has done with this sketch. Some of them created a second card with a bonus sketch that Arlana did, so there is lots of eye candy to look hat.
And if you haven't heard about the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog you should visit there too. This is the first time that I have played along, but I definitely plan on going back there again!

Keep scrolling down to see the post I made earlier this morning
showing you the last of my September projects for SheetLoad of Cards...
Have a Sweet Wednesday and may good things happen fortuitously to fill your bucket today!!

SheetLoad Share and Sneak Peeks

Before the month ends I wanted to share with you the last project that I made for September's SheetLoad eZine issue. If you remember, JessicaLynnOriginal sponsored our September issue and was gracious to let us use some of her cute stamps. She is the designer who made the adorable owl stamps called Brentwoods.

Using her Evan and Evee Christmas Caroling Digistamp and the September's sketch, I created this Christmas card for the upcoming holidays.

The digistamp was printed out on my inkjet printer and then I always heat set the ink before I color the images with my Copics. One technique to note is how I ran my red cardstock circle through the Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder and then lightly sanded the raised edges to make it look white and to add texture.
I also wanted to add some bling for a really festive card so I also added rhinestones to the center of my snowflake punches and made the snow by sprinkling glitter over glue. Christmas always needs a little bling, bling!! LOL!

Supplies Used:
Digital Stamp: JessicaLynnOriginal (Evan & Evee Christmas Caroling); Patterned Paper: DCWV; Cardstock: PaperTrey Ink (White); Inks: Computer Inkjet, Signo Uniball (opaque white); Markers: COPIC Ribbon: Michaels; Glitter: unknown; Gems: Studio 18; Die Cut: Spellbinders (Circle); Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug (Snowflakes); Paper Punch: Martha Stewart (Snowflake)

Have you downloaded your FREE copy of the September '09 SheetLoad of Cards yet?! If not, head on over today and see what our artists did with their stamps from JessicaLynnOriginal.

The new issue will be out tomorrow, October 1st, and you can get a sneak peek at the new issue over on the SheetLoad Blog today.
I'll be back soon with another post including both a sneak peek of another Whimsie Doodles digistamp using a new Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch!! See ya soon!!

"Ghoul" Friends are to Die For!!

Melyssa has done it again!! This Ghoul Friends digistamp with accompanying phrase is set to be released for sale on Thursday, October 1st at the Whimsie Doodles blog!

Have you seen anything cuter lately?? I am in love with the sweetness of this set. It was so fun to color with my Copic Markers too. The bright and cheery candy corn DP is from the Recollections paper pad available at Michael's. The orange die cut strip comes from a laser cut sheet from Bazzill. The small white square rub-ons in two rows is from American Crafts. All the flowers are from Prima and the brad is from Basic Grey. I used the Nestie label 3 and trimmed the bottom so it was square. I repeated the same shape by only cutting the top portion of the sentiment panel.

Want to see some more sneak peeks?? Click on the links below...

Whimsie Doodles



Joni (Witchy Girl sneak)

Have you tried digistamping yet??
There is no reason not too. Once you have your image printed onto your cardstock it feels no different than stamping with red rubber or acrylic stamps. Melyssa even has two FREE digis available on her website so you can try digistamping without investing any money until you know you like it! And trust me you will!!

The Whimsie Turtle you can download immediately from the site and the Berry Much Bear you will get when you sign up to receive the Whimsie Doodles Newsletters. I hope that you will give them a try! Just click on either of the pictures above to be taken the WD blog where you can get them!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for one more sneak peek before Thursday's new images are released!! Have a great day and my your bucket flow over with lots of "ghoul" friends!

Feeling Just a Little Bit Wicked!

Well at least this adorable witch is that will be released from Whimsie Doodles on October 1st!

Isn't she amazing? I just love every part of her from her funky glasses to her clunky shoes, I think she is great! This witch image called Witchy Girl and she comes in digital format with two sentiment options; the one you see here and another one that says "Bewitched by You."

What a perfect card to send to your significant other if you are feeling a little naughty! Or she could be added to your child's scrapbook page remembering that special year she dressed up as a witch!

The DP and CS used for this card come from the MM Spooky Alley Paper Pad. The border trim was made using a MS punch. The ribbon is from PaperTrey Ink. To get an idea on the size of the images, I printed these directly out onto GP white CS without adjusting the sizes at all. The finished card size you see above is 5 x 6 1/2 inches.

The Witchy Girl was colored in using Copic markers. I created the starry background by stamping a small star background stamp I have from Unity's Little Sprout set using Versamark ink and then I lightly rubbed grey and black chalk over it! It provided the perfect amount of grunge to the card and repeated the star pattern you see in the DP.
Want a chance to win this great digistamp set? Simply go visit the main Whimsie Doodles blog and check out one of the cards that Melyssa created and leave a comment. She will be choosing one random winner for each sneak peek!!

For more sneak peeks please visit the following links...

Joni Wilson (may be posted tomorrow!)
Happy Monday folks and may your bucket be filled and overflowing with feelings that aren't so witchy!! LOL!

Final Sketchfest Challenge Card

I have had soooo much fun working with the sketches all week long at the Sketchfest going on at Caardvarks! The sketch designer Heidi Van Laar is uber talented and provided such awesome sketches to inspire us! My thanks go out to Caardvarks for hosting the challenge, Studio Calico for sponsoring the challenge and also to Heidi for the awesome sketches! I was able to submit a card each day this week which will put me in the running for a chance at winning a spot on the Caardvarks Crew beginning in November! Wish me luck!! It would be such an honor to be chosen and it makes me really nervous since I saw so many fabulous entries in Mr Linky this week!! AAck!!

I decided to go with a Halloween themed card for this sketch which you can see pictured below...

I didn't change it up very much, but where you see the small circle, I inserted my adorable spider brad from a new collection by MM called Spooky Alley. I bought the fibers that you see below at Michael's and have been hoarding it for a very long time! It is a great fiber to make scarves out of!!

The stamps are from PaperTrey Ink's Spooky Sweets II collection. The stamps you see used are the ornate circle and the spider web. The sentiment strip is actually a strip of paper from the Recollections Halloween Paper collection. In fact all the paper comes from the same collection except for the white mat which is GP cardstock.

I added a bit of sparkle to the spider web by drawing over the stamped image with my Sakura Gelly Roller pen. I debated adding some more touches to it but finally decided that between the DP, the ornate stamps, and the furry fibers, it really didn't need any more embellishments or treatments. Enough is enough!!

Thanks again for taking a look at my card today. I appreciate all the nice comments that have been left and it has been nice to see some new names visiting my blog. I hope you will come back again!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and may your bucket overflow with sweets of the non-spooky kind!


Bee-Lieve me when I say that this is going to be a really quick post! I have been up since 6 am Friday morning and it is now 2:45 Saturday morning. My job was crazy today. Six babies were born in that time period and kept me from my craft room today. I need to get some sleep.... but call me crazy... I couldn't go to bed until I made my card for Friday's Sketchfest!! LOL!

Check out the Caardvarks blog for more details! Here is the sketch that we were given to use from Heidi Van Laar...

And here is my take on it...

All of the stamps on this card come from Unity. The notebook paper is from the LeChic Vintage Scrapbook kit, and the bee-lieve sentiments and the Bee are from the Everyday Adorable collection. I hand drew and cut out the check marks.

The bee is colored with Copics. The border punch is called "loops" from MS. I like the way it turned out and think it will a great inspirational card for someone who needs it!

Have a great day! May your bucket overflow with lots of fun and exciting things to do this weekend!

Giggle, Laugh, Joy!

Woohoo!! It's Unity's Friend's With Flair Friday where we have the pleasure of checking up to 50 blogs all containing some Unity goodness!! I have a really busy day ahead of me so I had to get my post up early. Besides the card I have below for you, I will provide you with more links containing Unity that I posted on my blog this week! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Giggling, Laughing and Joy... aren't these things that we can all hope for a little more! I know I can! Just think of how good it feels and how therapeutic it is to have a good belly laugh! I hope that you will have more of these things in your day today and in your life!

Today I made a fun loving card that will hopefully bring a smile to its recipient. The card is made from the sketch provided over at Caardvarks as Thursday's sketch for the weeklong Sketchfest that is going on!

Here is today's sketch....

And here is my card...

The DP is from Junkitz and the blue CS is Bazzill. I used three Unity stamps for this card. The sentiment cluster is from the Le Chic Vintage Scrapbooking kit (which I believe has sold out), the Turtle is from "You + Me = Happy, and the Butterfly is from Bevy of Butterflies. That cool black ribbon vine is an awesome find that I got yesterday from my LSS. It was precut and I don't know who the manufacturer is.

For the Sketchfest challenges I have used a lot of Unity this week and if you still want to see some more, you can review some of my previous posts this week...

Thanks for taking a look! I hope you are finding reasons to giggle, laugh and have joy! One question though... Is your bucket overflowing??

Sketchfest Card- Clean and Simple Style!

Another day, another sketch over at the Sketchfest at Caardvarks! I love these sketches! So far they have all been designed by Heidi Van Laar and she is really rocking it with these!!

Here is today's sketch...

And here is my Clean and Simple version of a Christmas card using today's sketch. I oriented the card landscape instead of portrait but otherwise followed the sketch as is...

The paper is a new mini deck I bought just today at my LSS. It is by Cosmo Cricket and it is called "Jolly by Golly." It is so cute and fresh like all the Cosmo stuff is! The stamp is called "A Scarf for Three" that is designed by Stephanie Fizer and sold at MFT. (See, I don't only use Unity stamps! LOL!) I colored the image with my Copics but then paper pieced the scarf. The snowflake is from Nestabilities Create a Flake 1 that I embellished with some rhinestones after die cutting it out with some glitter paper from DCWV!

Using my Scor-Pal I embossed a frame around the pieces to give them a frame!

Thanks for taking a peek!! Scroll down to see today's earlier Sweet Sketch Wednesday post!Until tomorrow may your bucket overflow with many warm wishes!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

This week was a fun week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday because we were sponsored by Dustin Pike and were able to choose two of his images to work with. He is an awesome artist and is very generous giving away a ton of freebies. So if you have never used his digital images I strongly suggest you go and visit his site and give them a try.

As a side note, he is getting ready to retire all his previously designed digistamps (because they will be made into rubber soon) and he is selling the first five pages of his images all for just $25. That's an incredible bargain!! You might want to check it out!

So on to today's sketch! It's another great classic one by Arlana from Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

I made two cards this week because I was given two of Dustin's images to work with. Here is the first card I made. It uses his image called Say Ah, which can be found on page six of his catalog HERE! I will just admit ahead of time that there is something not right with this card, something bothers me about it, so I hope you can look past its imperfections.

I do like the brightness and vibrancy of it, and I love the way that I was able to color the inside of the Jack-O-Lantern's mouth to look like the candle was glowing inside. But there is something about how I arranged my elements that I don't like! I used my icicle border punch by MS upside down to make the grass!
The next card uses Dustin's Witch Riding image found on the same page of his catalog. This one is a little dark, but I wanted it to look like the witch was flying in a night sky on Halloween. I think the witch is adorable!! The embellishments are from Recollections at Michael's and the DP is from K & Co. The spider web border you see here is actually a rub on that I rubbed onto orange paper and then cut out!

Please stop by the SSW blog and see all the creations made by the DT. They always amaze me with their talents. I am so lucky to be on this DT with these great ladies! You can win THREE of Dustin's images FREE if you play along and are chosen as this week's winner! I hope you play along!

Have a sweet Wednesday! May your bucket overflow with sweetness in the sugar-free kind of way... I am dieting!! Ugh!!

Enjoy Your Day!

Here is the card that I made for the continuing Sketchfest Challenge going on over at the Caardvarks blog ! Today we were provided with the following sketch...

And below you can see the card that I made for today's sketch...

My original thought when I saw this sketch was using a tree as the main image on the card, but then when I found this awesome paper by Jillibean Soup, I changed my mind!

I decided to cut the flower image right out of the DP. And add some more DP to make the stem.
I embellished the card a little more with three cute little birdies from Unity's February 09 KOM and also with the "enjoy the day" sentiment from Unity's May 09 KOM.

I made the button that you see the ribbon tied through for this week's Technique Lover's Challenge TLC239 at SCS which was to make your own 5 layered button. You can see the post and the link to the directions to make your own HERE.

I am really enjoying these challenges and happy that it has worked out for me to be able to make a card every day so far. I hope it keeps working out that way. Thanks for taking a look and sorry for the extra posts, but I have to try and fit these in every day!
I hope you Enjoy Your Day and may your bucket continually overflow with ways to do just that!

Everything is Extraordinary... the right light at the right time!

I had fun today playing with some new Unity stamps and a couple of sketches. I know since most of your are card makers and scrapbookers, that you know the importance of good lighting on your subjects or projects when you want to take a picture. Well this quote from Unity's new September Kit of the Month is so true.

It says that

"In the right light at the right time, ...everything is EXTRAORDINARY!!!"

Isn't that true?? It is a great reminder that things appear differently because of our perspective. I hope this will come to my mind more often when I need to look at things from a different angle!!!

I worked with the Monday sketch for the Sketchfest challenge going on over at Caardvarks. I am going to try and complete each sketch everyday so that I can have a chance at being considered one of Caardvarks new DT members. The sketches are awesome, and as is if the chance to be on the DT wasn't enough, Studio Calico is sponsoring the event and is giving away some amazing prizes!!

Here is the sketch that we were given...

And here is the card that I made for the challenge...

I just love the vintage looking old fashioned lamp that came in Unity's Sept KOM and so I just had to use it and the awesome quote above on today's project. I tried to go very vintage with the look on this card to match the antique looking lamp. It reminds me so much of a lamp that you would see in a Victorian B&B or at your Great Grandmother's house. The DP I used is from MM's English Garden collection.
I framed out the sentiment with a nestie and then used it as a template to sponge on. The blue rub-on is from American Crafts. The lace is from Joann's and I added just a pop of red to liven it all up a bit. Can you see where I added little tiny red rhinestones (Michael's Jewelry Essentials) to the fringe on the lamp to make it appear like crystals you would see on a chandelier? I was hoping that the DP would mimic old-fashioned wall paper!
Thanks for taking a look at my submission! I like how it came out because I love all things frilly and girly!! It was fun to put together!
Have a great night and may your bucket overflow with more space on your DVR than TV shows to record!! Thank God for new TV programming starting back up again!! :-)

It's a Sketch Challenge from Whimsie Doodles!

Today is the 21st of the month which means it is time for another WD sketch challenge! I think Melyssa's sketches are unique and interesting which makes them a lot of fun to play along with. I hope that you will play along because there are FREE digistamps at stake!! Check out the details on the Whimsie Doodles Blog. A winner will be chosen next week and will two free digistamps or one free Digistamp set! Are you ready to play???

You must use a Whimsie Doodles stamp on your card, but don't forget you can get two free ones from her blog, so there is no excuse not to play!!

Here is this month's sketch...

And here is the card that I made for this challenge...

I know!!! It's another Halloween card!! LOL!! But I was trying to think outside the box a little and decided that the top note shaped piece could be a spider web instead and just had to go with it!

In all, this card uses four Whimsie Doodles digistamps. The spider and the web are from the Just Hanging Around set, the Pumpkin is from the Halloween Bits and Bites set and the "trick or treat" sentiment is from the Candy Monster set.

I masked off the spider and rotated the web so that I could print it directly onto my card front. Then I filled in the lines using my black Stickles. I also masked the web and then printed the spider right where I wanted it on my card front. I drew in his web string with a black pen. I printed the spider twice so that I could cut him out and pop him up on the card. I also printed the sentiment directly onto the card front after masking the "smell my feet" portion of it. I promise a tutorial on manipulating your digistamps very soon!

Head on over to the WD blog and check out some more sketch inspired cards and be sure to get some WD digistamps so you can play along with us this week and have a chance at winning!!

Have a wonderful Monday! Until my next post, may your bucket overflow with energy and excitement for the upcoming week!!

A Couple of Challenge Cards

I had lots of fun today playing in my scraproom! Thank goodness (and by that I mean God) that I didn't get called in today! It is always nice having a free day off especially after a day like I had yesterday at work!!

The first challenge card I completed today was the Featured Stamper's challenge (FS137) on SCS. We were featuring Heather who is known as Tankgrl on SCS. HERE is her Gallery, and HERE is the card of hers that I chose to CASE.

This is my take on her card...

I kept the colors of red and blue, but added a bit of yellow too! I changed the ship to a submarine which is one of the Whimsie Doodles newest digistamps and also added the waves. Both come from the WD Fish Tales set. The sun is from the WD set called Sunny Day. Because I needed a boy's birthday card for an upcoming birthday, I also changed the sentiment!

The DP I used is from K&Co.'s Daydreams collection. The brads are from MM. The piece of rope I used was a repurposed piece from a clothing tag! The digistamps were colored with Copics.

The second challenge card I made is for the Caardvarks first Scrapfest Sketch. Studio Calico is hosting the week long event and giving away an awesome prize pack! There will be a new sketch everyday this week!! I hope to play along all week long.

Here is the sketch that we were given to use...

And here is my take on that sketch...

I decided to go with a Halloween theme! (I love Halloween stuff remember??) I used a new pack of paper that I got from MM called Spook Alley. I love the colors and the prints in this collection! They are going to be a lot of fun to use and will be used a lot! I used chipboard flourishes from Fancy Pants that I inked up with Amuse black ink. I also used the new MS spider web border punch and some rhinestones from Studio 18 and Memory Box. The ribbon is from Michael's.
All stamps used on this card are from Unity. The witch and "i luv being witchy" sentiment come from the Trick or Treat Peeps set and the "happy halloween" sentiment is from thier Hauntingly Sweet set. the witch was colored using my Copic Markers.

I hope you had a great weekend and I will be back soon with a Whimsie Doodles Sketch Challenge to share with you!!

Happy Wedding!

I made this card for Monday's CAS challenge #32 to make a wedding card. I forgot to post it until now and I wanted to get it out there before we have a new challenge already tomorrow!
I apologize for it not being a REAL Clean and Simple card, but if you know my style, then for me it IS really CAS! LOL!! I think the paper (from MM Black Tie collection) is ornate and busy which makes it seem less clean. But really there aren't that many layers or embellishments on this card. You will probably see this one in my Etsy store. I sold the last wedding card that was in there!!
If you want to see some really awesome CAS cards, go check out Miss Boo's Blog and Gallery and you will be forever impressed! She is the Queen of CAS!! I love her style!!
Keeping it short and sweet today! Work kept me busy all day yesterday (and some of the night last night!) And I want to get some good cleaning, card making and family time in today so I better get busy if I want to fit it all in today!!
Have a wonderful Sunday and may your bucket flow over with joy everlasting!

SheetLoad Share!

With my computer in the shop for most of September I haven't been able to share with you the images I took of my projects that I designed for September's SheetLoad of Cards sketch. I was able to show you the card that made it on the cover of the magazine, but I also have two other cards and a Beyond the Card project to share with you!

So to get caught up, and since two of my projects go together, I am going to show you two of the designs I submitted for the September Issue of SheetLoad of Cards eZine. They are designed using JessicaLynnOriginal stamps' Adventure (It's a Jungle Out There) set. Being the girly girl that I am , this set proved to be a real challenge for me until I decided to go with a little Boy's Birthday Party theme!

This is a picture of the completed Birthday Party Kit that I made using the stamp set!

Edited to Add: Thank you Craftria for reminding me that I had misspelled my invitation by puting "Your" instead of "You're" on the card front. I actually realized it before I submitted it to SheetLoad, but forgot to remove the old pics from my computer and ended up uploading the wrong ones. Where able I replaced the pictures of some of the misspelled invitations. But some of them still remain to ensure you get a proper look at the whole collection. :-(

No birthday party can happen if you don't invite some kids right? So my first order of business was to create an invitation. Remember that all the designs had to follow this month's sketch which you can see HERE by downloading the latest eZine.

As you can see I took the Adventure (It's a Jungle Out There) stamp set and went Indiana Jones with it! The DP and CS I used are from the Paper Salon's Rugged collection. The Green DP is from Karen Foster and the Black CS is from Recollections. All stamped images were stamped using Amuse Black ink and colored with Copic markers unless stated otherwise.

To create the sentiment, I found an Indiana Jones look-alike font on the Internet and used Word Art in Power Point to design it and then printed it out on my CS. But JLO does also provide a stamp set that would work perfectly for this occasion!

For an extra touch I stamped the hat and rope and popped them up on top of the car for additional depth and interest. I think a lot of little boys would be excited to go to this party if they got this invitation in the mail! It really helps set the mood for the whole party!

The party gift bag doesn't follow the sketch, but I decided to make one using the same stamp set so the whole set would be complete! Every party has to have a party bag to give away!!

On to the board game...

I purchased an old Clue game from a local thrift store and decided to alter it!

I lightly sanded the board and then covered it with a cream colored Heidi Swapp paint. After making the playing area to represent the sketch, and punching squares to provide the path of the game, I then stamped many images all over it to create my background.

I used the column stamp to make a border for the game, multiple leaf stamps to make it appear jungle-like and then also stamped the jeep image to show the starting area of the game.

I even stamped the stone stamp to form a snake pit in the top corner and filled it with snakes stamped in coordinating colors using my SU ink! I did find that coloring on the painted background made it difficult to blend my Copic markers well. To make the game playing cards that provide the players with how to proceed in the game, I stamped the skeleton's head on the face of each of them.

Again using the Indiana Jones look-alike font I made the title for the game. Using Rub-ons, I made a Draw and Discard pile for the cards. Throughout the game on some of the spaces I stamped a skeleton head which indicates when a player should draw a card from the Draw pile. And on other spaces I stamped snakes which means when a player lands there they have to spend one turn in the snake pit.

To move around the game board, players use the spinner to determine where they land on the board. They progress to the next closest color of space that matches the color their spinner landed on. The spinner was created using a chipboard circle and a chipboard tag that was trimmer to represent a pointer. The circle was placed on top of another circle that was made into pie shaped pieces with all the colors.

To make the game pieces I colored four different hats, one to represent each color of game pieces. Before I cut them out, I first folded them in half so that I could form a tent with the hat piece and then by leaving a tab of paper on the bottom, I slipped them into the foam of the game piece bases that I made. The bases were made out of some small plastic storage containers that I had on hand that I filled with Almost Leather (a thick foam-like material.)

So there you have it! An adventure game suitable for a young man's birthday party. As players move three spaces ahead for finding a priceless artifact, or get sent back five spaces because they were run over by a big boulder, they will race around the board beginning at the start space and ending at the last column that contains the jewel that they are all in pursuit of! It really is an Adventure!!!

It was funny because even though my youngest is fifteen years old, he wanted to play the game when he saw it completed! It really did come out nicely!!

If you stuck with me for this whole LONG post, thanks so much! I can't tell you how many hours went into making it, so I really appreciate you taking the time to look at the finished product!

Be sure to visit SheetLoad of Cards and JessicaLynnOriginal stamps to get your sketch and stamps for your next project!!

Alicia was nice enough to Feature me as one of her new Designers this week on this post HERE... so if you would like to check it out, you might learn a thing or two about me that you didn't already know!

Have a great Saturday and may your bucket overflow with lots of adventures of your own this weekend!
