Love Somethings

Hello stamping friends.  Once again my favorite day of the week rolls around.  I just love the anticipation of the weekend.  I'm smiling right now as I think of it.  OK, on to stamping.

Today brings a new challenge at Stamp Something.  This week's challenge is Love Somethings.  This was another fun one for me as I love creating lovey dovey cards.  Now, I usually have quite a time deciding what to use for this or that, but this one was easy to decide.  Today is my sister's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIANA!!).  Unfortunately, I'm a little behind getting a birthday card done for her.  But I still wanted to show her how much I care.  PLUS, she gave me THE greatest Christmas present this year... a gift certificate to where I buy most of my copic markers (and had a great time buying more)!!  This is Leslie and Lorie Lulu... a Stamping Bella image... and was just perfect for the message I wanted to send.


Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts who offers up lots of great stamping needs.  Nikki, the owner of Bunny Zoe Crafts, has generously offered a gift certificate to one lucky participant in our challenge!

I used a bit of glitter on the girls.  On the bottom of the pink dress, the dots on the green dress, the heart on the apron and a little on the big butterfly.  I also tried a little something new.  I used a Gelly Roll clear star pen on the girls great hair.  I tried working it into more curls.  It didn't really turn out as I has hoped, but I don't totally hate it so I'll work on that a little more.


I'll try entering this card in a few other challenges:
 1.  Bellarific Friday the SKETCH
