Hey ya'll! Hope everyone is having a wonderful April.
Can you believe it's almost over?!>!
First things first with this post, this is a friendly reminder that the current challenge at LIIU is
------ STITCHING! ------
You don't miss this challenge. But remember you must use a rubber stamp creation to enter!
AND To spice things up:
There is also a DT call doing on with this challenge.
So if you are interested in being on a monthly DT that allows you to ink up your Rubber Stamps, then go check out the deets HERE!
I've made some important decisions in my blogging life lately & as such, have had to let some of my DT's go :-( . The reason behind this is primarily to spend more time with my family this summer....we've got a busy one lined up with swimming lessons, soccer & a family va-ca in August! Also, simply enjoying the weather with my family.
I also want to concentrate more on my scrapbooking, which has taken a serious backseat to all my cardamaking.
HOWEVER, another decision I have made is to concentrate more on designs, DT's & stamps/images that intrigue me to the utmost. Believe me, there are LOTS of those out there! Having said that, there are a few DT's I would give my left arm to be on (I am right handed so I must keep this one for crafting purposes................enuf said.......lol)
One of those teams is Tickled Pink Stamps, who, BTW, is having a 3 month GDT call at the mo! WooHOO!! I just love these stamps/images & after winning one during one of their new release blog hops, I simply HAD to order more. Nothing like a good piece or rubba!
The stamp I used here is called Lil Fashionette- 80's Sookie. As soon as I saw her I knew I had to have her, cuz she so reminded me of my daughter. She loves her karoeke, Micheal Jackson (especially on Wii), & singing & dancing!
The papers I used are a recent purchase at Micheals. Tim Holtz 12X12 paper pack reg: $26.99 on sale of $7.99. NO KIDDING! YIKES. I nabbed it up.
Lotsa distressing going on.....Stitching.......sponging & another recent purchase..... (at the same time as the aforementioned paper) is a set of Tim Holtz Grunge Paper/Material shapes.............it is sooooo cool, but I have to investigate as to what I can do with it!
Anywho, the frame is of the Grunge material. I sponged it with Vintage Photo ink then sewed on it! The sentiment inside is also stamped with vintage photo ink & is also from the Tickled Pink store.
I also stamped some SU shapes around my little Sookie!
Green satin ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbons & Raffia is from Bunny Zoes. The little yellow swirly circle is misc that I've had FOREVA!
Wish me luck in the GDT call!
