Feelin’ Old?!!

Happy TGIFriday my friends!  Anyone have any wild and crazy plans this weekend?  As you read this I will be driving down to Greensboro, NC to my friend Betty’s store called The Stamping & Scrapbooking Room---packed to the brim with yummo goodies Smile I also have a new friend traveling with me on my travels for the rest of 2011—yep I really do—but you’ll have to check in on Sunday to see who it is, hee hee!  Looking forward to catching up with my friends in NC and having dinner with everyone tonight and then class tomorrow.  If you see someone speeding errrrrr…..driving the posted speed limit late Saturday night up Rt. 95 N, bopping her head and singing LOUDLY---THAT’S ME!!! LOL!  Gotta stay awake and have some fun while I’m driving.  Trust me I have NO problem entertaining myself or anyone around me—in fact I feel its my mission in life to do so Winking smile Life’s too short to not love every minute of it KWIM---I don’t believe in wasting more than 5 minutes on madness or pitifulness, LOL!  And NOPE I don’t feel old, at least not today---ask me after I get done with my NC trip, followed by the SC trip followed by Vegas. Then I might feel REALLY old, hee hee!

Vintage and Distressed!!

P1110342_edited-1

Today I’m sharing my card I made for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog!  We are celebrating our 2 Year Anniversary and there are some HUGE PRIZES for grabs at the challenge blog!  Make sure to stop by and check them out---also some of the DT gals are giving prizes on their blogs (like me—see below) so make sure to hop around!!  And our fabulous sponsor is Crafty Secrets—they so kindly gifted the DT with a stamp set.  I picked this fun mini set called “Message on a Bottle” and there are many little stamps that you can put on the front of the bottle to customize it.

bottle1

I used the new mini-sized K&Co Papers “Julianne”, I love the mini prints and vintage feel of these.  I stamped a PTI sentiment onto a Spellbinders die cut and inked the edges—the mini pearls were made with Ranger’s Liquid Pearls.  The swirls are by Marianne Designs.

bottle2

The image was colored with Copics and I used more distressed/vintage colors Y26,Y23,Y21/Colorless Blender/E44,E43,E42,E40.  Then I added some stardust Stickles to the bottle stopper.  Again the Liquid Pearls dress up the label just a bit.

Blog Candy:  Leave a comment on this post and you could win (1) Free Online Class of your choice from my Color Me Creative Classroom!! Leave comment by next Wednesday, June 8th!

Make sure to stop by the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the DT projects and how to play and win!!
