Get Well Wishes

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here - http://bit.ly/KyliesFebHighlights

Our theme for this highlight is Get Well soon - What a wonderful way to cheer someone up when they are feeling down.

Here is my card:

This last picture is what the card will look like closed, just coming out of the envelope.  This was my first time making this kind of easel card.  It was a lot easier than I thought!  The base is a 4.25" x 5.5" card front.  To get the easel, I added a piece that was 3" x 4.5", scored at 2" and 4".  The 0.5" flap is glued down in between the Whisper White, and Island Indigo on the base.  I went over the detailed stamp parts of the butterfly, and all of the flowers with my Clear Wink of Stella pen to give the card a little shimmer.

Thanks for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog -http://bit.ly/KyliesFebHighlights to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

February Earning Alaska Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the February edition of the Earning Alaska Blog Hop.  This month we are all focusing on the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs.  There is so much goodness packed into those two books.  I love it all!

My card features the Lift Me Up stamp set.  

Here is my card:

I nearly cased this card from the Occasions catalog.    I *love* these hot air balloons.  

That is all I have to share for today.  Next on the hop is my Aussie friend, Leonie, and I know she has something lovely to share!

Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Blog Hop: Love is in the Air

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the February Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration Blog Hop.  This month our theme is, Love Is In The Air.  Are you ready for Valentine's yet?  I am not.  But I am almost ready.  As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You may have just started our hop, or left stop number 16 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Darla. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Here is my card:

I used one 6x6 sheet from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper stack, and cut it into 3/4" strips.  I then glued them onto a 3 3/4" x 5 " piece of whisper white, alternating the pattern.  (I love double sided paper!)  Once I had all my strips glued down, I simply trimmed the edges so they lined up with the white.

That is all I have to share for tonight!  I hop you will go around through all of the projects shared for this hop, and be sure to leave some love for each of these talented ladies!  Next up on the hop is stop #2, Cathy.  I'm sure she has something fabulous to share!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration February Color Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a good weekend!  

Today is Monday, and that means it is challenge time over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration!  Today we have our February Color challenge for you.

These colors are so cute, and spring-y!  

Here is my card:

I stamped the flower on watercolor paper, with StazOn ink.  I used the ink pads and my aqua painter to color the flower in.

That is all I have to share for today.  Please head over to the Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration blog, and play along with this great color challenge!
