Good Tuesday afternoon everyone! It is HOT here today, no kiddin'--you will wilt if you go outside today :)!! At least it's sunny tho! I'm excited because I only have one more challenge to finish up today for the Dirty Girl Challenges on SCS--yippee!! There were 20 challenges total and boy did some of them take me out of my comfort zone for sure, but it was fun, now we'll see if I win (ha ha)! I am excited that I won a new stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy the other night randomly, so my luck must be turning (thanks Korin)! I also get to have a girl's nite out tonight--it's been awhile that I've gone out at nite w/ friends cuz' we're always so busy. I'm looking forward to a nice glass of wine and some "girl" talk!
Ok, my newest Sugar Nellie stamps by Elisabeth Bell came yesterday from Funky Kits and I had to ink one up today. This one is called "Planting Some Love" and I think its darling--it actually comes with a kitty chasing a butterfly stamp too, but I didn't add that on today. I colored her with my Copics and added a few stickles to the flowers on her hat. I added a few highlights w/ my Inkssentials pen too. The delicious dp is from Chatterbox's "Violet Dahlias" and I love the color combo--thought it worked perfectly with this image. I used the sketch challenge from the Dirty Girl challenges on SCS by Holly for this one (although she used a oval & I made mine a circle to fit the image in). The sentiment is from Gina K's "friendship blooms" set and I stamped it w/ SU's lavender lace inkpad directly onto the dp. For a final touch I layered a bazillion Prima flowers and leaves (lol) and adhered them w/ glue dots (the centers are Doodlebug brads). I'm pretty pleased w/ the turnout, whatcha' think?
Ok, onto my last challenge card and I will finally be done w/ all these challenges-hurrah!!! I'll see ya tomorrow--
