Just for fun...

Hello fellow stampers.  How's your day going?  I'm doing OK after not feeling well yesterday.  The day here is a little overcast and cooler and I'm sooooo grateful for that!!!  That heat and humidity just melts me!

I ordered several Lili of the Valley stamps a couple of weeks ago and am finally getting to play with one.  This is one of my faves from the pre-Christmas release.  Isn't she just wonderful?!?!?!  So sweet... and I've sweetened her up even more with lots, and I mean LOTS, of pink!!!  She was sure fun to color up.  Now I can't wait to play with some of the others I got!

It's a little hard to tell, but I sparkled up this little cutie's flower, necklace and purse.  I also used crystal effects on the mirror and tried to work her little reflection in it as well, but that didn't work out quite as I'd hoped!  Please... don't look too close at that!!  hahahaha!

I made this card just for fun, but also with quite a few challenges in mind.  Top of this list is the very first 7 Kids College Fund Challenge.  Their prize this first week is a $50 gift certificate to their store.  : )  I have to hurry as this challenge ends tonight.
