Little Darlings Release!!

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone!  I got back late Monday evening from my trip to Michigan.  What a weekend it was, LOL---I laughed so much that my cheeks and sides STILL hurt.  I had a blast and so enjoyed teaching all the ladies up there.  I also got to meet quite a few ladies that I’ve known online for awhile and my friend Vivi Casale flew allll the way from Brazil with her husband for the classes as well---wow! She is such a sweetie and it was fabulous to meet her.  We had lots of late nights, junk food and laughs---if you saw our silliness on facebook this weekend you know what I’m talking about (hey---where’s Waldo?).  My friends hid like 50 lil’ Waldo’s all over the place—I was still finding them today when I unpacked, LOL! Waving hi to Wini, Froggy, Janine, Meg, Cindy, Judy & Wini  (my party gals) and everyone else too! Winking smile  Our long journey back home took me a total of 13 hours in the car and I think I’m still sore and crippled, LOL but having Melanie in the car for most of the ride helped big time.  I know she laughed but I’m sure she thinks I’m a NUT for sure, hee hee!  So now I’m playing catch up with projects and emails so I can enjoy this weekend outside with my family.  Can’t believe May will be ending soon---feels like it just started!

Today I get to share a new stamp line with you from my friend Angie Hunt called “Little Darlings” and they are cute lil’ darlings for sure!  I was so happy she asked me to help with the release and today there is a super-fun Blog Hop to celebrate. The blog hop order is at the end of the post, so make sure to get hopping around today!  Make sure you stop by her new store “Love to Stamp” HERE to check these cuties out!  She also has a new Challenge Blog HERE that you should check out.

I'm entering this in the For Your Inspiration Challenge (you'll see why when you click over, lol)~

I had so much fun working with this image---I like to think she represents me just a little bit.  Everyday I feel like I’m living a bit of my dream and I’m so thankful for that---getting to know so many wonderful people, travel, teach coloring and having a great family.  What more could a gal ask for?  This one is called “Up, Up And Away” and she was fun to color with my Copics too!  This paper matched perfectly as well which is always a bonus IMO—its new from my fave paper company My Minds Eye “Lime Twist-Out of the Blue”.  

I used the larger balloon printed paper for my main background and then stamped a fun sentiment from PTI in blue at the bottom.  I used PTI ribbon to wrap around, tied with a Bow Easy and put a button on top.  The extra cloud in the left corner is from a PTI die that I inked and added Stickles to.  A few orange rhinestones and a border with a Fiskars punch finishes it off.

Yep she got colored with Copics—I kept the colors bright and happy to match the papers (makes you smile right? lol)  Copics used are BG72,BG11,BG10/YR23,Y15,Y11/YR18,YR12,YR00/E25,E31,E50/E11,E00.  I added some Stickles to her scarf and the middle of the balloon.  Her flying goggles got some Diamond Glaze as well.  So very cute!

Okay—now you MUST hop along to these fabulous designers blogs to see more inspiration!!  And don’t forget to leave comments for a chance at some yummy Blog Candy!
