Man I have been blog hopping!

Whew, my fingers are exhausted! I have been trying to visit the blogs of ladies from Creative Xpress, Out of this Funk and Never been Kissed Scrappers! I am sure you have seen me on your blogs! You all are doing such wonderful projects! I am learning so much! I appreciate those of you that have stopped by!!!!! I will try to keep my blog updated as much as possible!

Okay I was at Di Hickman's blog and got a terrific card sketch I just had to try! I had a great time with this one! I actually can say I loved what I did!!!! Now trust me that is such a surprise! I will post a picture of it and explain the details in case you are interested! Wow, interested in something I did, now that is a shock!

Okay, the sketch was slightly different but this is my take! What I used:
Large stamp - Rubber Stampede
Tag stamp - SU
Watercolors - SU, Prisma
Paper - SU
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Glitter pen (the lines) - Gelly roll
Ribbon - Joann's
Tag - SU
Rhinestone - No idea
Square punch - Creative Memories
Ink - SU
Basically I stamped the image on watercolor paper then colored it in with various types of pencils and crayons! I then used a blender to color them in. I did random bulbs with colored stickles and let them dry over night. Today I made my card base and embossed the green paper with the Cuttlebug folder. I had to make the squares (CM punch) offset as that is the design of the stamp. In punching I lost some the ornaments so I had to line up the bulb lines as best I could! I then took my SU tag punches to make the tag and used the coordinating tag set to make the design. The center ornament had a design inside but I decided to add sparkle by adding the rhinestone! Gave it some lift. I used the slit punch so that I could put my ribbon through. Tied it up around just the green then adhered it to the card base! I am very proud of this card! I most of the time dislike my work a lot but I like this one! I hope you do too!

I am in a Christmas card swap and am thinking this is the card I will do for everyone! I think I will just do it full style instead of cutting into squares since it will be easier for me! That is how I feel now but who knows what I will do tomorrow! LMAO I did color my second one, letting the stickles dry as I type this! So maybe stop back to see what I have done tomorrow! I will also be posting Taylor's cards she made! She is very creative so stop back to see them too!

Thanks for visiting my friends! I will see you on your blog so be looking for Fink to stop by! Hugs all! Good night! Oh yeah, the best part about tonight is that my baby will be home from her week long trip with her grandparents! I am looking forward to seeing her!
