Vintage Gal!!

Hiya everyone & Happy Memorial Day to ya!! Hope you all have been enjoying the 3 day weekend here in the States. We've had a great weekend of relaxing, hanging out in the backyard grilling & roasting marshmallows! Yesterday Riley & hubby went paintballing while I got some time in my craftroom (yay) and then we went to dinner & saw "Night At the Museum 2"--loved, loved that movie! So funny & cute! I've also continued working out alot (only 1 coke this weekend & no bad foods--mostly fish & veggies) so I'm anxious to see what the scale says tomorrow (cross fingers)! Alexa comes back this evening from her trip with her friend's family--they went out on their boat for the weekend & sounds like she had a blast too! Today we're off to the Smithsonian of American History (Riley's fave place)--should be fun as long as the rain holds off for a bit & the crowds are small! So I've just got one project for ya & some newsbitz too!

NEWSBITZ: Today kicks off the start of the Stamping Out Alzheimers Event HERE--for just a $5 donation you get access to the site for a week of fun challenges & prizes! All the money goes to funding for research for Alzheimers (such a great cause)! Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and Whiff of Joy both have fun challenges posted, so make sure and stop by both!! We'd love to see you over there!

So after 2 tries I finally got my design team stamps from Whiff of Joy--boy someone in customs must love these stamps because this is the 3rd time they've gotten lost, ugh!! LOL Anywho, I'm late creating but wanted to share a project I got done (actually got 4 projects done yesterday, woohoo) yesterday using the new Whiff of Joy Summer Kit stamps available for preorder (early June) in the states right HERE! I really adore all of these images by Elisabeth Bell, but this "Dreamy Willow with Flowers" is my favorite!

I pulled out some more of those awesome papers from Graphic 45 and went to town, making Willow bold but vintage-y! I just adore how this card turned out--love the patterns & colors together (colored w/ my Copics)! The ribbon is from SU and I added some stickles to her flowers--the sentiment is available from Whiff of Joy too! Hope you like it as much as me too :o)

See ya back here tomorrow with some new projects & don't forget to stop by the Stamping Out Alzheimer's site when you get a chance!
