Time to PARTY!

Man I need to get in gear and do a few more posts! What better way than to party with the girls over at Market Street Stamps!  I missed last month's block party and something was just missing that month ;)  I decided to pull out my Gone Campin' set again.  Why would I do that in the middle of winter?  Because I love this stamp set so much!!!  I do have a few of their newer sets that I have to ink up but I just love this one and had to create a card with it.  This was my first attempt with copics.  Not the best work ever but I figure it is a good jumping off point.  Now I just need to practice, practice, practice!  Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy!

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and Some Fun News!

I'm really checking in to share a card with you but I have to share my exciting news!  I just got my first request for a card for Paper Crafts Magazine!!!  I am so excited!  I will have a card in the July/August 2012 issue!!!  Have I put in enough exclamation marks?  :)  I was beginning to think it would never happen.  I am over the moon!!!

Okay now I will calm myself and tell you why I'm really here.  I made a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  The picture below is the inspiration and it is fantastic!  There are so many ways you could go with this!  I may have to make another card!  I just recently got my first few sets of Paper Smooches stamps and I LOVE how well they stamp.  The quality of the stamps are fantastic! is the picture.

And here is my card.
 I was playing around with the cute bear from the Chubby Chum Pals set and thought he would be cute with a little smooch on his cheek.  I pulled the red from the picture and the embossed heart background represents the polka dot wall in the picture.  Since Valentine's Day is coming up I thought this would be a great card for my daughter's teacher.  Hope you enjoy!
