Hello stamping friends!!
I hope you had a lovely weekend. Friday night we went to a friend's house to play cards and had a great time. Then Saturday night the boys went to the Monster Truck Show while the girls had a pedicure and fun Japanese dinner. Sunday was filled with church and bible study. It was a great weekend with warm weather - I actaully started my Spring "farmer's tan" by getting a little sun watching Ansley at horse riding lessons.
Now it looks like we might not see the sun today! 100% chance of rain which is actually fine with us since we have been extremely dry and in a 'fire hazard' lately. We also have some severe weather warnings in the area, too. But the warm weather won't last, I think it's supposed to get cold again next weekend which a possible chance of a snow flurry...in Jacksonville, Florida...what?!). We'll see if that actually happens.
There is a new weekly candy at the Stamp and Create blog...
You can enter the candy here.
For my card today, I wanted to use one of the new Saturated Canary stamps that arrived on Friday...
This is Bella from Saturated Canary. I loved the Zebra print on her shirt, so I used some glitter cardstock from American Crafts from my stash along with Lavender Silk Ribbon, Heart Swirl DooHickey from Magnolia, Grape Mini Blooms, Lavender Encore Flowers, Purple Serenade Flowers, Mini Black/Gray Roses, Lavender pearls, Stickles, and Liquid Pearls.
The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os...
Isn't she so adorable? I have to work on color her hair though! I'm not too happy with it.
This is for the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges: Ribbon and Bling
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog: Bling it on
Sunday Stamper: Texture (lots of texture with the black stripes on the background paper is glitter and rough while the white is smooth. Plus the image is heat embossed for added texture).
All that Stickles: Stardust. Hard to see, but there is stickles around the edge of the image cardstock and on the balls on the image.
Crazy 4 Challenges: Texture
Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping!
