Challenges, challenges, but The Stamping Boutique comes to the rescue!

Coffee of the the Day - Butter Toffee

Today is a big day with 2 posts, so be sure to watch for both of them!

It also brings 2 challenges where Ths Stamping Boutique was the perfect solution! and of course many of my answers always involve plenty of pink, shimmer, and that ever beloved fave, Basic Grey! :)

The first challenge is a debut for a new challenge blog, I love Digi. You may have heard me mention them before! This blog promises to be lots and lots of fun, so I hope you will join me in the future. I am blessed to be a guest DT member with them, but the premiere challenge happens to be sponosored by The Stamping Boutique! and guess what the challenge is? Think Pink!!! well come on, let's be honest with ourselves here for a moment. deep in your heart of hearts, aren't you always thinking pink? grins! you know I am!!!

My card uses the adorable fairy image from TSB. of course she has lots of shimmer, as all good fairies must!her wings and shoes are painted with stickles, the flowers and accent bits are covered with a pink metallic gel pen, and the berries are touched with a glitter pen. The papers are Basic Grey Eva. Rose mist Glimmer Mist is sprayed on the card base and edge pieces of paper. The scalloped border piece is a bit of packing paper left over from an earlier project that I had done using repurposed items. it is also covered in the same glimmer mist. Tiny buttons, prmias, vintage seam tape, and a sentiment piece add to the card. The edges of the card base and main image matting are lightly covered in stickles for more glitter.

This card meets several other challenges as well:

Paper Jewels - Cute & girly
Pile It On - Flowers

The next card us is made for Stef's sketch challenge over on the TSB challenge blog. These are always so much fun to do, as you know Stef is a hoot and a holler to be around! :) wavin' hi to you girlfriend!!!

Here the papers are Basic Grey Sultry. Of course I had to grab an image from my namesake line - The Princess Latte collection! I threatened hubby that I would put on my tiara this morning. he was making fun of me and my fear/dislike/fear/fear/fear of monkeys. this is after 2 of my boys laughed for 5 minutes straight just thinking aobut my reaction to the clowns in the movie 'Zombieland'. great movie - HORRIBLE clowns! ick! decided it was about TIARA TIME! giggles! so this card is perfect. what I want to know from you is whether you think the sentiment refers to that cute puppy or the latte in the corner! tee hee hee! more glitter here of course - her boots are painted with pink shimmerz, the little accents and dog collar are covered with a pink metallic gel pen, and the leash and tiara are covered in the glitter pen. Of course the dog collar is sporting one fancy pink rhinestone! Primas flowers, a vintage button, and some vintage seam tape finish our card. Now you know irl the dog would be one of my precious labbers. Latte, our yellow lab, is truly a princess. We call her the princess pup all the time. She would be perfect in this card. But I think I need to ask Tracey to draw a wee little tiara on our pup - what do you think? ;)

This card also meets the criteria for the following challenges:

Paper Jewels - Cute & Girly
Pile It On - Flowers

Be sure to play along in these challenges with us! You will be so happy you did! :)
