Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday.
I have another card for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at retrosketches on Sunday and couldn't wait to play along.
It's a super cool sketch and I had this idea to incorporate my new Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP from SU. Now, I would have paired it with the new SU Rain or Shine stamp set. However, I already had a set from another vendor that I bought a little while ago! So, I used that stamp instead and paired it with the new SU cloud embossing folder.
Here's what I did with the sketch:
I LOVE this DSP. The colors are bright and cheerful. Lots of dots and stripes and umbrellas and clouds... Fabulous. I used a die cut, that comes with the stamp set, to create the umbrella and mounted it on stampin' dimensionals. I also raised the sentiment with dimensionals. I was really happy with the card. I think the bright cheerful colors are perfect for a get well card.
You really should check out the great inspiration cards at retro - and I know they would appreciate it if you were tempted to play along.
On a personal note:
Still celebrating my 1000th post this week and I am doing another spot blog candy give away. Don't forget, all comments left over my posts this week will be eligible for the big blog candy. You can see the deets in this post. To add to the fun I will be running spot blog candy opportunities. Last night you had the opportunity to win Botanical Gazette DSP. Tonight you have an opportunity to win a Stampin' Up! card holder. It's really cute.
So, what do you have to do to win this little beauty? How about another totally random question. Last night it was the color you are most likely to find in my clothes closet. How about tonight we guess how many pairs of shoes I own. Now... Im no Imelda Marcos, but I sure like my shoes!!! So, I'm taking guesses. Leave me a message stating how many pairs of shoes I own. If no-one is spot on, I will take an answer to the nearest 5. So, you know I own more than 5:-)
And... to add to the fun. I'll hand out another one of these little beauties to the first person who can guess my favorite shoe designer. I'll give you clues..... he's European and his shoes are fabulous. Even though I've been wearing his shoes for over two decades, he was made famous in the HBO series Sex and the City.
So, two lots of the card holders up for grabs tonight. I'll leve this blog candy question open until Thursday night and announce the winners on Friday.
I hope you will join me in this little bit of fun to celebrate my 1,000th post. It's my way of saying thank you :-)
Warm hugs and prayers to those of you who need a little lift tonight. Have a fabulous Wednesday.
