Put on Your Party Shoes and CELEBRATE! :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice


What a big, beautiful day! Chock full of so much exciting news, fun cards, and images that will melt your heart and make you sigh in delight........ ready? grab your cuppa and join me! c'mon.....

To start.... Ryan texted me as soon as he got to school this morning. He is not only in the HS play, he has one of the lead roles! woot woot! way to go! I am so proud of him!!!! a good Monty Python monologue to audition will never fail... tee hee!

Next.... I have been accepted into one of the most amazing new Design Teams EVER! well, every Design Team is simply amazing, and this one is no exception! I will be working with Tammy and some other phenom crafters over at A Day for Daisies! You know that I have long been a fan of her artwork, so this is enough to give me heart palpatations! in fact, I screamed so loud when I got her email that David had to keep asking me, 'What? What? What? Are you okay? What is happening to you?' before I could finally get my mind together enough to respond.......

So on to my projects...

The first one is a card I created for several challenges going on in blogland. I used 2 of Tammy's images, Rose Tree & A Magical Read. This card shows the true wonder of digis - being able to resize and flip the images. The girl reading & playing with butterflies has been cut out and popped up with foam tape. The butterflies as well as the roses on the tree are painted with pink shimmerz. I used Basic Grey Two Scoops paper, some of my fave blue vintage lace, a few buttons, this gorgeous German cut paper butterfly that has been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist, and a library card. oh my, can't forget the pretty pink Prima rose! I lightly touched it with rock candy distress stickles.

The next card was created for the new challenge beginning today over at A Day for Daisies. Challenges run for 2 weeks, so please play along! The theme this fortnight is 'Celebrations'. I decided that this precious Dreams Do Come True image would be perfect for a celebration project! What girl doesn't love dressing up in her favorite party shoes!?! :) of course hers are painted with pink blingz for that extra special shimmery shine! I used papers from the Basic Grey Porcelain collection here. Little added touches from the Making Memories Vintage Findings kits were also added. The main image was edged in walnut distress stickles while the card base was edged first in white craft ink and then rock candy distres stickles. I really wanted some bling on this baby! :) it is a party celebration afterall! giggles! The lace was sprayed with tea rose glimmer mist and the pink crown envie & sentiment banner with walnut gold. So put on YOUR party shoes and come play along!

Thanks for sharing all of the excitement with me! Enjoy your weekend! :)
