Celebra'tions

Happy Weekend, all! =) If you have seen this post, you know that I am lucky enough to be on the Make Amazing Design Team for Richard Garay's new crafty adventure. While we are still waiting for the new mass market products to be released, the design team members all got some of Richard's Spellbinders Celebra'tions Collection by Richard Garay to play with. Here are a few looks of the fun crafty products that I got!


Please pardon the slightly fussy photo, I was excited! =)


Oh the inks! Super yummy colors and the dies and stamps!


I was surprised how much goodies that they managed to fit in those boxes!


I was like a kid in a candy store. I kept pulling more crafty supplies out from those boxes. The RG people totally spoiled us!

I can't wait to get crafty and start making some cards/projects with all those awesome projects, so stay tuned! =)

Have a crafty day and thanks for stopping by!


hugs,

Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is a card that I made for this week's Bellariffic Friday Challenge over at Stamping Bella Blog!


This week's challenge is to use Uptown Girls or Tiny Townie images. Easy Peasy! =)


I colored up the sweet Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons for my card. She is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then die cut and trimmed to size.


The patterned paper is from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy 6x6 Paper Pad and the sentiment comes with little Blossom.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's challenge and see next week's challenge theme over at Stamping Bella Blog! =)
