Could it be??? SUNshine? Blog Candy?

Hello!

Hope this is the beginning of a great day for all of you.  I just let the dogs in, and thought, "hmmmmm.....could it be?  Is that really SUNshine I see poking through those clouds?"  I think it just might be :)

Today's card was made 'just for fun'.  I have no idea who will receive it.  I saw a challenge at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog for a monochromatic card using a stamp found at the 7 Kids store, and I couldn't resist using this "Tweet Talk" image by Penny Black.  Click photo to enlarge!

Supplies: Penny Black Tweet Talk, Sentiment by Amy R., Flowers from Hobby Lobby, DCWV Pink CS, Doodlebug Designs "Sweet Cakes" Paper Pad, EK Success Corner & Border Punches, Copic Markers, Color Box Chalk Ink-Orchid Pastel, Doily from Dollar Tree, Dimensional Squares (Michael's)

I don't do monochromatic cards very often, so it just had to be a fun, frilly, cheerful, and 'bling-ful' card!  Pink is so much fun to create with, but I rarely choose that color, so this was fun!  Lee, if you are reading, this should make you grin for at least a few minutes!!!

So, folks, guess who did it again?  Yep, me.  Nope....did NOT get published again, but....



I bought the last issue of CardMaker Magazine, and it came with my subscription renewal too.  So....some lucky person will win my extra copy!  To enter, just leave me a comment on this post and tell me you'd like to win.  No need to be a follower (but I'd love it if you were!).  I'll draw a winner on Sunday, and mail out the magazine on Monday - fair enough???

Need some help - I am volunteering on Feb. 25th at a nearby YMCA Women's Wellness Weekend.  I'll be teaching several classes, and would love to know if any of you can hook me up with folks that would be willing to donate some Scor-Tape?  If I can't get some scor-tape donated, then they are planning for us to use Elmer's glue.  Ugh....we are doing gift bags, candy boxes, candy wrappers, and gift cards.  Elmer's would SO be my last choice!  lol...   If you know of any company out there that would help out, let me know!

One last thing....I had a lady e-mail me looking for an old set of TAC stamps - the Snowman Nativity.  If anyone has that set and would like to give it away, sell it, or loan it for a while, let me know.  I took all of my TAC stamps to the animal shelter a few weeks ago, or I would have a set!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings and smiles in measures of oodles!

I would LOVE to win this magazine!! Beautiful card - such a sweet image. I think if you contact Diana (the owner of Scor-Pal, Tape) she would most likely be glad to donate some tape to you. Just go to their website and click on the "contact us". She's super sweet.

this is one adorable card! love all your little details ...so many to look at (-:
sorry you didnt published - makes you wonder what they are looking for..love the magazine but they seem to stick to same designers (which i love them all) and hard to get in this one - there's the challenge right!
and on ScorTape - i order mine online but i'm betting Diana with ScorPal would donate you some...
hugs
Linda

Donna said...

Lynn Mercurio said...

This is just too sweet. Love the way you have designed this card and the wonderful coloring on that little girl image...and of course, you had me hooked when I saw that bling! I must have read your post wrong...I thought you said you DIDN'T get published...I'm confused by all your comments now. HA! Happy Friday, girlfriend.
