First of all, I feel the need to proudly brag for one moment. I have defeated the Blogger. That's right, I can't tell you how many times I've attempted to schedule a post for a later date, only to be thwarted by Blogger's irksomeness. Ok, ok, more like thwarted by my own technological ineptitude... but today! Today! I have defeated the Blogger by using the magical weapon of olde - the Google. Apparently you have to set a schedule time AND THEN also click "Publish". ahhhhh* Lightbulb moment! So fingers crossed that this posts at the right time and I'm not just hyping myself for no reason (that'd be the Embarrasing).
Anywho... I suppose I should actually post something about what I'm supposed to be posting, right? I have come harkening to the Internets with good news and glad tidings: There is another sketch challenge going on over at STAMPlorations!
Here it is:
I love the sketches over at STAMPlorations. They're always so versatile and great for putting your own spin on the sketch - which is what I happened to do.
I got these fabulously textured little embellishments from Michael's during their after-Christmas bonanza and have been waiting for the perfect idea to bust them out.
They're chevron printed, round, and have buttons. I know right? The absolute PERFECT embellishment, it my book.
As you can see, I flipped the sketch. I created the background panel by using the STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Celebrate. I paired my embellies with a cool turquoise and vibrant crimson. I think it gives it a little southwest flair, no?
It is pretty much the perfect non-sex... no not right... nondescript.... na.... what the h is the word?! The Google wins again - unisex! Thank you. It is pretty much the perfect unisex card because it can be used for a boy or a girl. And it's just plain fun!
Come play along with me at STAMPlorations and check out our fabulously talented Guest Designer - Carol Dunham of CMDesign. You can use any kind of stamp you want - bonus! And you can win prizes - double bonus!
prize: 3 digi stamps
guest designer spot in Sketch #31
2 Top picks
the option to be a guest designer in the Sketch #31 Challenge if they'll use a STAMPlorations digi stamp (to be provided to them)
or clear stamp (if they already have them)
I'm also sending my card over to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday ATG with option of heart or arrows
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
Design Team Showcase - Anything for a DT
Just as an aside - I have two sweet things I have to share with you:
Look at these adorable Valentines I made for my coworkers:
I made the tag using STAMPlorations Sugar Rush set.
The glass jars are actually from the dollar bin at Target!
Who would have thunk the $1 bin was so classy?
The second thing I have to share is a little bit of a brag, too...
And pretty much the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me:
Thanks for stopping by, my friends! Leave me a comment or follow my blog and I will certainly try to return the favor! I hope you all had wonderful V-days (and if so, you should tell me all about them!)
