This week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge is to use felt. I fully intended to get some felt sheets and "punch" some shapes out, but wasn't able to in the end. But I did have some felt flowers... perfect! The sketch is from CCEE. Head on over to the PMS Blog for the deets and to linkie up your felt creation.

I love this image by Kraftin Kimmie (you can get Gabrielle and several other Kraftin Kimmie stamps at Paper Garden Projects), I just love the whole Alice in Wonderland look about her! This week's JUGs challenge was dry embossing. Well embossing folders are something I don't use nearly enough of, so I wanted to use one for this challenge. As soon as I saw my 'hearts' ef, I knew this image would be perfect for it! I also used the sketch from the CCEE Challenge blog, Holy Snickerdoodles, I just realized I forgot the silly button, lol! Oh well. I hope this inspires you to get a little inky! Tomorrow Sneak Peeks start for Paper Makeup Stamps' June release... trust me you are NOT going to want to miss it!! Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.

Happy Saturday! I got home last night from the office and though I wanted to stamp and play, there was also a part of that just wanted to climb in to bed! One of my dearest stamping friends, Katie called to tell me a story... as it turns out someone in one of her classes was telling her about this blog she really liked, etc. and as they were talking, Katie realized she was talking about MY blog! Wowzers... that totally made my day and was perfect timing!! Thanks Katie for the "pick-me-up", and thanks to my "follower" for giving me the "boost" I needed. Ok back to business... This card is well outside of my comfort zone for a few reasons. The colors for one, though I LOVE these bright, vivid colors I normally have a hard time with them. I also almost never combine more than two challenges in one card and I actually used three this time! Christi Snow is the Challenge Hostess this week at Paper Makeup. I LOVE Christi's style... she uses fun colors and thinks so out-of-the-box. Anyway this week she chose an apron over at Anthropologie (LOVE that store!!) as our inspiration piece, head on over to the Paper Makeup Blog to see Christi's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge. I am also doing the CCEE challenge, for my first time and last but not least, I am also using the Free 4 All challenge from Dawn on SCS. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend!
