I am a Stamping Slacker!!!

LOL!! Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!! I haven't posted to my blog since Wednesday! WOWSA! I cannot even believe that!! I have been stamping, but I can't show you any of that stuff yet (but OH BOY...I really want too!!!), and I have also been busy at work (yuck!) and every weekend we have had birthday parties...I am exhausted!! LOL!! Not to mention, I had a FABULOUS dream about Jon Bon Jovi the other night, and I keep going to bed early to see if I can re-capture my dream...giggle!!

Here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS, FS116, which honors Kathy aka Wattle!!! Woo Hoo! I was SUPER excited when I checked SCS tonight and saw that today Kathy is being honored! I just had to play along!!

I chose to case Kathy's Thankful Blooms card, which I realized was a Verve Sketch after I completed my card. I LOVE her colors and the stamps she used on her card!!

For my card, I also used all Verve, but I used different sets. The flowers are from Miracles Blossom, and they were stamped three times, colored with Copics, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the center of each flower...I love that pop of bling!!!

I stamped just part of the sentiment from Meditations (the entire sentiment is "You're In My Thoughts and Prayers), and I cut it out with my brand new Spellbinders Shapeabilities, Ribbon Tags Trio, that I got from the Taylored Expressions Store!! Taylor has tons of the new Spellbinders!!!

The DSP on my card is Urban Oasis, and I used some of my Baja Breeze ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals. The panel of Baja Breeze behind my DSP was run through the Cuttlebug with the Harlequin Texturz Background from SU!/Sizzix, and I then highlighted it with my Baja Breeze ink and a Sponge Dauber.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! Check back a little later for the start of the There She Goes Sneak Peeks, and Paper Pretties Peeks start on Wednesday!!!
