Happy TGIFriday everyone! I’m traveling up to Delaware today to see my good friend Anary Baumgarth and to teach on Saturday. It will be a total girls weekend—my friend Colleen Holmes (yep my SCACD DT sistah & owner of Outlawz) is riding up with me as well. And our friends Melanie LaBelle and Anne will be at class tomorrow too---so lots of fun! Look on my Facebook for some updates on the “trouble”….errr FUN that we will be up to!! LOL! Then we will travel home late Saturday night—I want to be home as I have to take Riley pants shopping (oh the joy). Now that the weather has turned cooler he is lacking in pants since he’s grown another 5 inches since last spring—yikes! I’m combining it with a trip to Tyson’s Mall to look at Homecoming dresses with Alexa as well---lordy lordy Mom will be having lots of Advil and a glass of wine at dinner for SURE!! So a busy weekend! And of course I will have a post up on Sunday to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of September 11th here in the US---a sad day for sure. Even though it was 10 years ago I still find it hard to watch news coverage of it, it was just too close to home and so traumatic. And I know a lot of us feel that way—but we will definitely stop and take a minute to remember those that died that day and those that gave their lives rescuing and braving the chaos! WE REMEMBER—WE WILL NOT FORGET!
Yay today is the day that SCACD releases their new stamp line by Sylvia Zet! Oh these stamps are so adorable, they will make you grin ear to ear and want them ALL! There are two collections for two sweeties Loli & Poppi!! You can see both of the collections HERE and the DT is having a fun Blog Hop today to showcase them all (and some special guests too)!
I got to use this fabulous “Winter Wonder” from the Adventures of Loli & Friends! I just think her cute lil’ face is squishable and that BEAR---oh my the cuteness!! I used some new yummy papers by Memory Box called “Yuletide”—love the soft pastel colors. The swirls are a Heartfelt Designs die called “Bella Rose” and where the leaves are in the die I added layered snowflakes. The swirls were coated with MS glitter (its tiny circles of glitter) in silver & white. The snowflakes were made with different MS punches (pink ones were dry embossed too) then I added tacky glue and sprinkled them with MS Snow Glitter (yes I LOVE this stuff). In the center of each snowflake is a "glitter dot” (yep old school and I’m bringin’ ‘em back)! Sentiment is from PTI.
These cuties got colored in Copics—G02,G00,G000 / R85,R83,R81,RV10 / E11,E00 / E37,YR23,YR20 /E25,E31,E50 / B0000 for the shadows. All the fur trim got a nice coat of Doodlebug white flock (25% off HERE). Snow was done with MS Snow Glitter again. Diamond Glaze on the candle and her boots! Funny story---I was having a NOT good day yesterday and when I use flock I pour a bunch onto a pc of scrap cardstock. Then I add tacky glue to my image and lay the image down on the flock—you get a nice even coat that way. Well I went to put back all the extra flock and I put it in my Tacky Glue Bottle—UGH! Yes I did so the whole bottle was ruined. Thankfully because I believe in the crafters code, I had an extra bottle on hand LOL! Dumb, Dumb I say!!
