There She Goes....there she goes again....


PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MY PRETTIE WEDNESDAY CARD AND MY STAMPS AND SMILES PEEK!!! THANKS!!

Hi everyone!!! Happy Wednesday!!! I have alot going on today, so I hope you check each post for all sorts of fun stuff!!!

Did you see my post from yesterday, or perhaps the There She Goes blog? Well, I am SUPAH excited to tell you that Jessica has invited me to join the Trendsetters, the There She Goes Design Team!!

The first set that I have the pleasure of previewing for you from There She Goes is called Blessings!! This set is AMAZING...I cannot WAIT for you to see all of the gorgeous stamps in this set! My Irish husband said it was the best stamp set in my entire "Stamp Chalet"....that sure says something!!!

For this card, I started by stamping the cross twice in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Stampers Select White Cardstock. I framed one with my oval nestabilities, and the other I colored with my Copic Markers, cut it out and popped it up. It is VERY dimensional in real life!! I also gave it two coats of Candlelight Shimmerz, and it is soooooo very shimmery in real life also!!

I used Rockabilly DSP for this card, and I created panels alternating the Basic Black and Kiwi Kiss striped papers. I LOVE this sentiment (actually, I LOVE all the sentiments in this set!!), and I really wanted it to pop, so I created a cut edge and popped up one side of it. I also highlighted the *Live* and *Long* with a Copic Marker.

I finished off the card with some Silver 5/16 Brads and just a little bit of piercing!!!
