Thank You So Much...

Hello Everyone!  Wow, it's been a week since I've posted anything!  My new Love To Stamp store and Little Darlings rubber stamps are keeping me really busy...Thank you all so much :-)  It is so exciting to see each of you at the store and I'm so THRILLED that you like the stamps!!!

So, it looks like summer is finally making it's way to Michigan!  We opened the pool on Monday.  Yay!  We've got our first pool party scheduled for June 8th, which is my son's last day of school.  We've invited his entire class of 18 kids, plus siblings and parents.  I'm still waiting on rsvp's so I have no idea how many people to expect yet.  It's gonna be a lot of fun!  I'm hoping it'll be good and hot!!!


PaperPlay Challenges

It's time for another PaperPlay Challenge with Team A!  This week's theme is 'Blossoms and Blooms'.  How fun!  We all love our flowers!!!  This week's sponsor is Whiff of Joy.  They've got some beautiful new things going on over there so I hope you'll check them out.

Here's my project.  I had so much fun painting and assembling this card.  I love the way it turned out!

Thank You So Much
I decided to work with a combo of 2 mini Magnolia images:  #3011 Mini Tilda with Straw Hat and #532 Mini Romantic Window.  Both images are available right now at Magnolia-licious, where you'll always get quick and fantastic service. 

Personal Note:  You know, I've ordered products from many companies around the world.  I remember, when I first discovered Magnolia stamps, waiting for 2 months for an order of Magnolia stamps that I ordered from a retail store overseas.  I finally cancelled the order.  When I found Magnolia-licious, the waiting was over.  And yes, I do design for them now.  But I'm not obligated to say anything about their service.  They truly are awesome to deal with and you can expect to receive any stocked product very quickly.  Hats off to Diana Crick for fantastic customer service!

I masked the stamps using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (a rubber stamper's essential tool).  The gorgeous dp's are from Pink Paislee's "Butterfly Collection" and are available at Love To Stamp.  Cs is from Bazzill.  The doily is from my stash and I think I brought it home from a restaurant - I love when that happens!  All flowers are from WOC.  The sentiment is from LOTV and I cut it out with a die from Whiff of Joy.  The cute little craft dragonflies were cut with a Magnolia DooHickey die.

I colored the images using a combo of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger DI's.  Here are the details:

Copics:  E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 41, 42, 43, 44

DI's:  black soot, worn lipstick, pumice stone, peeled paint, shabby shutters, weathered wood, tumbled glass, vintage photo, antique linen, walnut stain

Little Reminder - Don't forget about the Little Darlings Challenges contest that's going on!!!  Those of you that ordered stamps should be seeing them soon in your mailbox, if not already.  I can't wait to see your creations!!!  There are great prizes and the contest runs through June 7th.  There is also CANDY up for grabs so be sure to stop by and sign up!

Well, that's all I have for you today!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll leave a little comment to let me know that you were here.
