Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new week! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Ours was nice but busy and now it seems that I have a nasty sinus infection and a touch of the flu--blech! So I hope to get some projects done in between laying on the couch today, lol! And I've got magazine projects to get done, I need to whip myself back into shape quickly, I HATE being sick! My daughter's 14th birthday is this week on the 25th so she's having a sleepover with a few friends--OUTSIDE--in a tent, LMBO! My non-nature-adventure daughter sleeping outside--we'll see how long it lasts, lol! I'll make a bet with you that it doesn't last very long--in fact if you leave me a comment today on this post with "the time you think my daughter & friends come crawling back in the house"--the closest person to the actual time will win a $25 gift certificate to Emma's Paperie on me, hee hee! (shhh..don't tell her I have this bet though, lol) And what she'll love even more is us going camping for Memorial Day Weekend--we haven't told her yet--when we do you'll hear her scream, lol---no electronics, no facebook, no showers--she just LOVES it!
-The winner of my blog candy from this post is Autumn of My Creative Side! Congrats Autumn! Email me with your details!
Today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun blog hop for you and we've all used the same stamp "Right Through My Heart" from Magnolia-licious. You can find all the blog hop details (including how to join in on the fun for some fabulous prizes) on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE. I decided I wanted to go over to the WILD SIDE with this stamp to show how you can use it for a multi-tude of things! This time it's funky fun using my favorite animal print and colors (hmmm....matches my craftroom, coincidence I think NOT, lol) for a card and a fun matching purse!!
Bow Easy. Those black pearls were made with my black pearl pen from Viva Decor--I love making my own pearls whatever size I need them to be and you can use the Gloss Gel Pens to create pearls as well (see here for both).
This stamp is so cute--I love Tilda as a little warrior, but when you stamp her she doesn't have an arrow in her hand thru the bow! Strange huh--so I made her an arrow with a toothpick that I colored with my black copic and attached some white feathers to the end of the arrow. I also restrung her bow with a scrap of Scrappers Floss. The bow was coated with diamond glaze for some shine. I also colored her lil' bag of arrows like zebra print and then gave it a coat of diamond glaze as well (and there are a lot of stickles thrown in too). Hey, my warrior gal is FUNKY FABULOUS!!
And lemme tell ya there is nothing better than a funky fabulous ZEBRA PURSE to go along with the card (yes, I know I have a few real ones myself, hee hee). You can find a great purse template on the Scor-Pal site HERE. My purse has a magnetic closure so you could add some small treats and gifts or a gift certificate inside. I added some more fun feathers, a Prima pearl center to the closure and ribbon handle. I had a ton of fun creating this project and I hope you had fun viewing it too!
Now for the next stop of this fabulous Blog Hop you need to hop over to Becca's Blog HERE (her post goes up at 6 am est)--so if you are hopping before 6 am make sure and stop back by her blog cuz' she always have something fabulous for you to see. While you're waiting hop on over to Claudia's blog HERE. And don't forget to stop by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to see the rest of the hop details and join in on the fun!!
Have fun hoppin' and I'll see you back here tomorrow with a Gina K Blog Hop!!
